Dr. James H. Cyriax was the first to thoroughly and systematically study soft tissue lesions of the orthopaedic system, and devise a specific massage technique for their treatment.
The technique is also called deep transverse friction and is used for treating muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joint capsules.
The major goal of this massage is to move transversely across a ligament
or tendon to mobilize it as much as possible. This technique often precedes
active exercise. Deep transverse friction massage restores mobility to a
muscle in the same way that mobilization frees a joint.
The massage will be directly over the site of lesion and pain.
The fingers move with the skin and do not slide over it. The thicker the
structure, the more the friction will be given. The technique is to sweep
back and forth over the full width of the tissue.
As a professional massage therapist, your ability to help others and grow your business is always on your mind. Protecting your business with liability insurance is also an extremely important part of your overall business.
Liability insurance can protect you from clients who have allergic reactions from oils and creams as well as slip and falls. It also may protect you if they make a claim and ask for financial reimbursement for injuries or loss of income they suffered from your treatment.
Our extensive insurance plan also protects damages to your personal property and premises and protection against fraudulent use of your social security number to establish credit accounts or secure loans through our identity recovery coverage.
