What is a metameric massage?
The metameric message works on the spine: an imaginary division of the body is performed in areas that correspond to various parts of the body which, if massaged, can bring various benefits. The deep compression of different areas of the spine that connect for example to the digestive system, the esophagus, the skin, the liver, allows to eliminate and solve many physical problems. Appropriately stimulating these segments of the body, in addition to an immediate sense of well-being of the connected areas, will lead to a release of endorphins and therefore to a feeling of serenity and peace.
What are metamers
Metamers are areas of the back that connect to the spinal nerves via nerve roots. The manipulations that are exercised on this area are reflected on the various parts of the body connected to the metamer in question. A course of metameric massage can be essential to cure different ailments. Dividing the back into these imaginary segments, which are indissolubly linked to the various parts of the body, is like reading a map: different physiological signals and cannot help to understand the alteration in progress. Each metamer is between two vertebrae and connects to an organ delegated for elimination or purification, for example. It is not trivial to be able to understand what is the right time to follow this massage and what are the best techniques to do it.
How to massage metamers
The metamers give a clear indication of the state of the reflex muscle: if the situation is abnormal, the temperature of the segment may be different, or the skin may be more or less clear, yellowed or thickened. For this reason, we often tend to work with distancing maneuvers of the muscle segments.
Investigating if they resist these manipulations, many aspects can be understood. The advantages of massaging these areas can be:
- Immediately perceptible well-being;
- Ability to understand the health status of different parts of the body;
- Treatment of non-symptomatic but still debilitating diseases.
Metameric massage techniques
This practice is of a total reflexology type: this means that every area of the body is connected to the complex branching that expands towards the body periphery from the nervous system.
The tissue on which this manipulation acts is the connective tissue, which covers the whole body. The connective tissue functions may be different:
- constitutes the blood;
- represents the interconnection between muscles, nerves and skin;
- forms the cartilages, the main surfaces of body cushioning;
- it is also the muscles and ligaments that are important for movement.
The compression intervenes precisely on this structure: when we are stressed and agitated there is an accumulation of negative substances, toxins and a physiological modification of this tissue, which an expert masseur can pick up through manipulations of the vertebral segments.
There are several techniques for effectively and safely practicing the metameric message. By following the metameric massage videos you can learn how to perform it in total safety and effectiveness, to increase your skills as a masseur.
Areas on which to exercise the metameric massage
The massage can be performed on different areas of the body, depending on the patient’s symptom. The areas on which this technique is normally concentrated are three:
- Oxygenation zone: this area includes the part related to bronchi, lungs and respiratory system in general. When fear, tension or stress builds up, intercostal pain is felt which is sharpened by breathing or pain in the breast. It is therefore possible, by working in this area, to lighten the burden of pain associated with these symptoms.
- Assimilation zone: the area of assimilation includes the liver, kidneys and digestive system. Working on the metamers related to this area can improve all the symptoms related to the digestive system.
- Elimination zone: everything related to menstrual disorders, the large and small intestine can be controlled by performing detachment maneuvers on these metamers.
Metameric leg massage
Metameric leg massage can help improve the management of fluids and toxins accumulated around the knee and calf. In fact, by stimulating the area of the patella or muscle behind the calf with a detachment movement, for example, lymph movement can be obtained from the periphery towards the central area of the body, allowing the elimination of toxins. This practice will provide immediate relief both for example for cellulite and for cell oxidation linked to age and movement.
Metamerical abdomen massage
The metameric massage of the abdomen helps to eliminate the swellings associated with stress and poor diet. Stimulating the connective area of the abdomen helps drain excess fluids and immediately feel lighter, vital and active. Associated with draining and calming herbal teas, this habit can also combat the swelling of the waist, which is unsightly and problematic for health. This detachment of abdominal tissues is not recommended, however, for particularly sensitive individuals:
- Pregnant women;
- People with gallstones;
- People with abdominal problems or recent operations;
Metameric massage and emotions
Massaging the metamers can also help to keep the emotions under control, linked to the various areas of the body: Chinese medicine teaches us that every organ is linked to a particular area.
- Joy: stimulates the heart and small intestine;
- Concern: spleen and stomach;
- Sadness: stimulates the lungs;
- Anger; stimulates the liver and the connected gland is the liver;
- Fear: stimulates the bladder and the connected gland is the adrenal gland;
By loosening and massaging these areas carefully, a beneficial effect can be achieved all over the body, releasing endorphins which have the effect of easing tension and anxiety. The fundamental thing, when learning this technique, is to not immediately seek an immediate effect of the massage, as the benefits of this practice can be had on the patient in the long term.
