Pain & the nervous system

Therapies

If there is a dissonance in the body which tends to amplify and manifest itself as pain or aggravation of the function of certain body areas or organs, solutions should be looked for.

It helps to alleviate the medical condition and supports the spontaneous healing of the body. It improves your posture and makes your organs function better, alleviates muscle tension, neck, head and back pain and boosts your metabolism.

For a lasting cure of chronic pain and problems with posture, we recommend a longer course of treatment. For women who have trouble getting pregnant or have a risk of miscarriage we recommend a five-session therapy which is followed by a cyclical therapy that is set according to the menstrual cycle.

MER-connective tissue massage

MER (Myofascal Energetic Realease) connective tissue massage is a combination of slow and forceful stretching of the soft and connective tissue and of joint release techniques.

The main causes for muscle tension and pain are overstrain and weariness of the muscles which are caused by static positions of the body. They block blood circulation and inflow of oxygen into the soft and sensitive tissues where nerve endings and pain receptors are located. Tense muscles and tendons put pressure on nerve fibers and cause up to 90% of all chronic pain.

If the right amount of pressure is put onto the connective tissue in the right way, then muscles and tendons will stretch and become flexible. Thereby, the body will be relieved of pain and tension. Also, the slow, deep and enjoyable movements make the nervous system more relaxed, restore emotional balance, revive the self-healing capability of the body and improve posture. Recommended from the age of 16.

Effects of the massage

  • reduces stress, mental and muscular tension, restores energy
  • increases the mobility of joints
  • reduces chronic pain
  • removes the old fixed patterns of the body
  • deeper and calmer sleep
  • improves lymphatic and blood circulation
  • balances pelvis and spinal column, improves posture
  • better flow of energy and greater sense of the body

Good to know

  • The massage is performed on the naked body on the massage table.
  • For better results we recommend having more than one session.
  • During the massage, it is important to breathe deeply and calmly. Breathing calms the body and the mind, releases tensions and helps to dissolve the most painful knots of tension.
  • The force used in the massage is up to your preference. The massage should not bring about sharp pain. In certain areas the so called pleasurable pain can occur.
  • The massage is not suitable for pregnant women, people with hernia, with a heart stimulator, with a diagnose of deep venous thrombosis, with serious skin diseases, with a diagnosis of severe rheumatic disease, or before six months have passed of an operation. Consult a therapist if you have osteporosis, varixes, high or low blood pressure or gastric ulcers.
  • The duration of the massage is 60 or 90 minutes. Arrive 10 minutes earlier for the body and mind to relax. Leave time for another 10 minutes for recovering from the massage.
Price of the therapy: 40/50 €
Duration of the therapy: 60/90+20 minutes
