Massage is the practice of soft tissue manipulation with physical (anatomical), functional (physiological), and psychological methods to have a specific effect. Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Its objective is the restoration of function, release of tension and re-establishment of contour.
Vigen's Spinal Massage treatment relaxes the muscles and tendons around the spine. The spinal massage relieves pressure from the spinal cord, unblocks nerves, and allows the vertebrae to move back into the correct position. This stretching massage also prepares the back for later phases of the Vigen treatment.
