The Science Behind the Mitts
The Massage Mitts provide an increased textured surface area to improve sensory data for the brain to decode and reprogram the congested or altered configerations of the soft tissue within the body.
The nodules on the Mitts provide a brief mechanical stretch affecting the skin, soft tissue, sub-dermal structures and deeper fascia.
The skin reaction to the nodules is to stimulate biochemical and neurophysiological responses in the tissue Matrix, fascial and other systems of the body.
These reactions will naturally reduce tension in the tissue, help repair, hydrate and oxygenate the congested tissue that causes pain and restricted movements.
You can use the Mitts with a variation of gentle massage, pressure, duration and direction to initiate and increase self-healing and self-regulating homeostatic responses. The skin can communicate more to our internal structures and organs than we first appreciated.
Our current understanding is that fascia can function as a highly energetic structure and subsequent communicator. The skin is the end point of all other organs of the body via fascial connections, making it the obvious structure for communication between superficial fascia, adipose tissue together with deeps superficial fascial structures.
We are understanding more how fascia and the biotesensegrity of our body, interstitial fluid dynamics and cell to cell communication can impact our whole well-being.
The evidence is growing connecting fascia, adipose tissue and the lymphatic system as a significant communicator within our body. The tissue matrix and ground substance are able to send signals directly to the medulla and cerebral cortex.
You can gain significant health benefits
from regular massage
Massage with the Massage Mitts promotes healing and flexibility
By stimulating the homeostatic processes, the tissue where you are massaging will activate nature's own biochemical and neurophysiological responses to improve well-being and restore function
The basic elements of massage include gentle stroking movements over the body but you can massage with the Mitts using other various techniques depending on your experience
They are effective in the reduction of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal symptoms
Massage increases localised blood flow and tissue oxygenation to the soft tissue structures and helps to decrease pain and increase flixibility
Perform simple massage techniques to reduce myofascial tension, scar tissue and soft tissue adhesions
Massage improves localised tissue function and reduces adhesions by increasing energy exchanges and reactions within the tissue to oxygenate and enhance the recovery process
