2 MassageMassein (from Greek language) – to press with a hand, to knead.Massage is a measured mechanical effect to a patient’s/client’s body with a therapeutic, cosmetic and relaxing impact.
3 HistoryMassage is one of the most ancient ways of treatment. Already for ages in various cultures it has been used for strengthening of human physical and mental health.The origins of the most ancient massage can be tracked in China in year 2698 b.c., there were medical schools and schools of gymnastics, where doctors gained the necessary knowledge of massageThe basics of contemporary massage were established by Peter Ling( ).
4 Massage is performed with: handsfeetapparatuswaterspecial brushescoldstonesetc.
5 Massage is having effect : Physiologically. Massage is having effect to a human body as a mechanic irritant.Psychologically. Major part of the clients perceive massage as a pleasant touch giving a sensual feeling of comfort and relaxation helping to appraise one’s body.
6 Physiological effect of massage Humoral- mechanically and directly affecting the tissues a formation of histamine, acetilholine and other biologically active substances is favouredNeuro-reflective- mechanical irritation is perceived by the receptor apparatus in skin, muscles, tendons, cords and internal organs transforming the mechanical energy in a buck fever energy. Flow of impulses from afferent nerves reach the cerebral cortices and thereby induces reflector response reactions of the skin, muscles and internal organs.Mechanical- tissues are compressed and moved thereby inducing an acceleration of intercellular fluid, lymph flow and blood circulation.

10 CelulliteAesthetic, cosmetic defect that visually looks as an “orange peel”- a dimpled appearance of the skin.
11 Localised areas of cellulite HipsButtocksThighsUpper armsAbdomen
12 Stages of cellulite 1st stage Lymphostasis in subcutaneous adipose tissues. Skin is even, smooth without any changes in color. It takes longer time to heal hematomas and skin bruises. For diagnosing it is recommended to use thermographic films.
13 Stages of cellulite 2nd stage Chronic lymph stasis, venous stasis. Alterations of skin relief. Dimples are more apparent at muscle tension. When touching, a lower skin temperature is observed.
14 Stages of cellulite 3rd stage Chronic lymph stasis, venous stasis, a deteriorated microcirculation. Local to a diffuse fibrosis in the subcutaneous fat layer - micronodules, which can be palpated. Skin is dimpled and looks like an “orange peel”. Skin is cold by touch. When pressing on separate thickening areas, one has painful sensations.
15 Stages of cellulite 4th stage Cellulite is apparant also at relaxed muscles. Micronodules are integrated in macronodules. Due to the microcirculatory disorders, the skin in the areas affected by cellulite is cold with a bluish tone. When pressing, one has painful feelings. Macronodules are also called as cellulite stones.

24 Effects of massageTo nervous system ( coordinates an integrated activity of all vital functions of the human body):Reduces activity of sympathetic nervous systemReduces fatigue, stress and increases the mental work abilitiesImproves the transmission of nerve impulse processes.Heart-blood vessel systems:Blood flows from the internal organs to skin and musclesExpand peripheral blood vesselsImprove blood supply to tissues and accelerate capillary blood circulationAffect the tissue trophicity processesFacilitate and accelerate venous blood circulationFacilitate heart work and improve blood supply to cardiac muscleReduce blood pressure and decelerate heart rate
25 Effects of massage Lymphatic system: Speed of the lymph flow in largest lymphatic vessels is four mm/sec. Through the thoracic duct ( ductus thoracicus) all the lymph flows through only six times in twenty-four-hoursMassage empties cells from the end-products of metabolism, reduces lymph stasis and oedema.Muscle system:Affects the blood and lymph flow in musclesEnhances elimination of lactic acidRestores muscle capacity two to four times (the number of active capillaries increases in muscles). In1mm² of the cross- section of muscles there are opened and functioning 1400 of capillariesIncreases or reduces muscle toneMost effective are kneading techniques ( petrissage)
26 Effects of massage Joint and ligament system: Increases elasticity and agility of ligamentsInfluences blood and lymph flow in bones and joints.Most effectively works with friction.Skin:Purifies the skin from dead horny cellsImproves blood supply to tissues, increases skin temperatureAffects the venous and lymph flow, decreases oedemasImproves skin and subcutaneous tissue trophicityEnhances the activity of sweat and sebaceous glands
27 Effects of massage Respiratory system- Reduces the frequency of breathing,Increases the oxygen intake and the carbon dioxide elimination,Improves the blood and lymph flow in respiratory organs and musclesEnhances expectorationDigestive system-Improves small intestine peristalsis,Stimulates blood and lymph flow, thereby improving the absorption of nutrients.Increases secretion of bileInternal organs are most effectively affected by vibration techniques of massage.
28 Effects of massage Urogenital system- Endocrine system- Increases the elaboration of urine, mineral salts, urea and uric acid.Endocrine system-Improves blood, lymph circulation, activates functional activity of internal secretion glands. Improves self-comfort.
29 Requirements to cosmetician at performance of massage : Clothes: in a white color, with short sleeves, comfortable, neat, well ironedHands: manicured, without nail varnish, short nailsHair: clean, not falling onto eyes and face during the procedureMake-up: a light day make-upFootwear: light, comfortable, neat, on a low heal or without, not making noiseBijouterie: no bijouterie( also no wedding ring), an exception can be small earrings)Perfume: no perfume

39 Massage techniquesTechniques of classical massage are performed in a prescribed sequence and manner, that are related to the intensity of action and the depth.Stroking- friction- kneading- percussion- vibration
40 Stroking( effleurage) Hand of the masseur is gliding over the skin without shirring itThis is the initial technique of the massage, also performed in between the other techniques and at the end of massage. The emphasis is put on the middle part of the stroking.StrokingComprehensiveFlatSublimisDeepSimultaneousAlternatelyContinuousInterrupted
41 Rules:When performing stroking, palms of the hands should fit tight to the client’s skinThere should be no space between the palm and the skinHands should be relaxedStroking shall be performed gently, smoothly and slowly in a direction of lymph flow-to the nearest lymph node areas
42 Effect of the stroking: To get introduced to the client’s bodyExfoliation of epidermisImproves blood provision to the skinImproves venous and lymph flow, reduces oedemaRelaxes skeleton muscles
43 Friction A massage technique pushing aside the skin Performed by fingers and palms
44 Effect of friction :Increases supply of blood and lymph to the massage area- a warming effectLoosening cicatricesAnestheticPrepares the skin for the other massage techniquesImproves the agility of joints
45 Kneading ( petrissage) Effect on musclesMuscle shall be taken in hands, pressed on, lifted upwards and put in the initial positionLongitudinal kneading- longitudinally cross the muscle fibresCross-kneading – cross over the muscle fibres
46 Effect of the kneading: Induces muscle hyperemiaEnhances elimination of metabolic end-products from muscles- restores muscle performance (reduces acidosis)Improves muscle performance(muscular endurance, strength, elasticity)
47 Percussion (Tapotement) - Very intense effect, increases blood pressure, improves blood circulation, lymph flow, improves muscle tonePerformed with palms of the hands, finger tipsRules:Shall not be applied if muscles are overworked, exhausted and crampyArm wrists shall be relaxedShall not be performed on neck, heart area, kidney area, abdomen, spinal cord, joints
49 VibrationVibration possesses a particular reflectory and relaxing efffectHeart rate is slowed downReflectory effect to internal organs- normalizes the secretory and motor functions of internal organs
