Who would benefit from petrissage? Individuals with hypertonicity in muscular tissue, tendinopathies, carpal tunnel, and/or medial/lateral epicondylitis. This massage therapy technique can be used for almost any pathology and is best used in combination with different techniques.
Petrissage is loosely defined by compressing and releasing muscular tissue. The main technique of petrissage is broken down into six subcategories: muscle squeezing, muscle stripping, muscle wringing, picking up, skin rolling and kneading. Kneading and strokes can be carried out by the use of thumbs, palms, knuckles, fingers and elbows.
At Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab in Burnaby, we can achieve different effects by varying pressure beneath the layer of superficial fascia to directly treat muscles. Depending on the application, the results from petrissage can be relaxing or stimulating.
