Eastbourne therapeutic massage case study
George is a regular visitor to Lushington Chiropractic in Eastbourne. He is a very healthy 90 year old who is still very active and has regular chiropractic and massage therapy care to maintain his health and wellbeing. In this article, we look at the assortment of massage techniques and stretches that masseuse Andy Swan applies during appointments to keep his body working well.
As one of the massage therapists at Lushington chiropractic, Andy Swan uses a stretching technique called active isolated stretching, which helps to maintain good function in George’s lower body and legs. It focuses on stretching the hamstrings, calves, glutes and quadriceps in a specific protocol designed to keep the tissue flexible and supple.
This is followed with a general massage to his back, neck, shoulders and arms, which is done with lots of effleurage (a form of massage involving a repeated circular stroking movement made with the palm of the hand) and petrissage (a massage technique that involves kneading the body). Together, these movements are used to soften stretch and ease muscular stiffness and tension.
Andy says: “George is a marvellous person who really understands the benefits the massage brings him.”
