Massage therapy in all ages has been used as a form of alternative therapeutic care which involves no drugs, needles and any kind of artificial enhancement technology. Orthobionomy is one of the many different types of therapeutic massaged used to treat various conditions. It is a gentle type of massage capable of putting the body in a relaxed state during the massage therapy session. It is also known as a corrective form of massage therapy used in improving the posture of the human body to prevent acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
If the body is in poor posture, the tendency is that the other parts of the body begin to carry the burden of the other parts that were designed to be in correct position. This is where the problem settles in. Muscles begin to tighten and stiffen while the joints restrict their movement and flexibility.
The developer of the massage therapy had his own perception when it comes to natural healing. Dr. Arthur Lincoln Pauls went through the therapy and focused his goal in achieving a connection with the emotion and pain in letting it pass by going with the flow of the pain. The meaning of his observation was simple. He devised proper positioning of the body that could not affect the condition; instead the therapeutic postures ease the pain.
In an orthobionomy massage session, all of the preparations conducted with the other massage therapy types are also practiced and considered essential for a successful and effective therapy. Preparations such as the type of meal taken before the therapy, the time of arrival as a preparation for the actual session, detoxification through drinking lots of water, and many other considerations prior to a therapy session.
During the massage therapy, the client is laid comfortably down a massage table. His or her comfort during the whole duration of the therapy session is checked and updated as a part of the principles and techniques.
It improves blood and oxygen circulation – due to the stimulation of the nerves during the therapy with the gentle massage strokes and techniques, the circulation is significantly improved which helps the client achieve a healthy constitution.
