What is chiromassage?
Chiromassage is a manual massage technique that aims to invigorate and relax, and for this reason is widely used as an adjunct in physical, mental and spiritual treatments.
The name "chiromassage" comes from the Greek word “chiro" which means "hand" and contains the focus of the technique: the masseuse uses the hands - and only the hands - to apply force or vibration on the patient's body and stimulate circulation, elasticity or reduction of some pains, since this massage provides a better performance of the circulatory, digestive, endocrine, lymphatic and skeletal systems.In addition, chiromassage relaxes, relieves tension, controls stress and, of course, contributes to general well-being, of body and mind!
But note that chiromassage isn't an alternative medicine. It can be part of a therapy, as it is an effective way of taking care of health and well-being that fulfills some needs of modern society, namely, the desire to keep in shape, play sports, postpone aging, avoid obesity , fight cellulite, insomnia, stress, anxiety, etc.
Types of chiromassage
There are several types of chiromassage, even because the field of techniques that use only the hands to massage, is wide. However, there are four very popular types of chiromassage, which we would like to highlight in this article: relaxation massage, toning massage, sports massage and lymphatic drainage.
The relaxation massage serves, as the name implies, to provide muscle relaxation thanks to firm and smooth movements over the body. Consequently, it also improves blood circulation, relieves tension in the neck and shoulders, corrects wrong postures and even solves anxiety problems.

The toning massage is carried out through intense pressure movements by the masseuse, associated with the use of special creams and oils, with the aim of improving the body contour and toning the skin. In other words, it serves to help the patient lose weight and / or achieve a firmer body. Thus, the invigorating massage is widely used to fight cellulite and reduce belly fat.
Sports massage is indicated for athletes and people who practice sports regularly and need to relieve tension, reduce muscle pain and encourage muscles to recover after a workout. In this technique, the masseuse applies firm and gentle movements over the patient's body that return blood and oxygen to the muscles, repair muscle tissues and stimulate the production of relaxing hormones, such as oxytocin.

Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique that stimulates and accelerates the lymphatic system (speeding up the process of transporting the lymph to the lymph nodes) through constant, rhythmic and precise movements. As a result, it detoxifies the patient's body and eliminates accumulated toxins that cause fluid retention, cellulite and localized fat.
It should be noted that lymphatic drainage, stimulating tissue regeneration, is also used, and with great success, in the treatment of varicose veins, edema, poor circulation, tiredness and menstrual pain.
