As early as 4000 years ago the civilised peoples of Asia believed that there is a suitable therapy for everyone. Once the correct method of treatment has been found it should be applied diligently and integrated into the daily routine. An approach based on these principles gives you the opportunity to achieve sustainable well-being.
The Institut Wolkenstein offers the following types of massage under its “Classical massage” programme:
Thorough stretching and work-through of the musculature. Complementary exercise and effective “hometraining” result in sustained well-being. Can be combined with: Triggerpoint therapy, myofascial techniques, rod massage, reflex zone massage, sound wave therapy.
Application of classical massaging techniques as part of a sports exercise routine. If required we also offer massages for competition preparation, pauses or de-exhaustion. Can be combined with: all other types except for lymph drainage.
“Trigger points” are permanent contractions of a muscular section which are caused by overexertion. These “tough knots” are removed through the application of pressure via four different techniques. Can be combined with: classical massage, sports massage, reflex zone massage, acupuncture point massage, rod massage, sound wave therapy.
Myofascial structures are the parts of tissue that surround and hold muscles, bones and organs. Treatment of contusions, compressions, strains and overexertion through the application of pressure and tension. Can be combined with: classical massage, sports massage, reflex zone massage, rod massage, sound wave therapy.
Treatment of the deeper layers of muscle through high pressure application of the Japanese wooden massage rod. Can be combined with: classical massage, sports massage, connective tissue massage, myofascial and triggerpoint therapies.
Connective tissue massage
Tension-induced stimulus through shifting of the skin affects inner organs, vessels, nerves and the locomotor system. Can be combined with: reflex zone massage, sound wave therapy.
Lymph Drainage (according to Dr. Vodder)
The gentle, rhythmic, circling and pumping movements of this therapy have a decongestive, diuretic and extremely relaxing effect. Application: sports, after injuries or operations, cosmetic purposes (e.g. drainage of facial lymphatic vessels).
Acupuncture point massage (according to Willy Penzel)
Based on traditional Chinese medicine. Energy equalisation through the tracing of Meridians (energy tracks) on the surface of the body and pressurisation of acupuncture points using a metal rod. Can be combined with: reflex zone massage, sound wave therapy.
