It is an autoimmune disease thought of as a crippling disease and although it is responsible for much of the disability due to progressive immobility of diarthrotic joints. Massage can greatly reduce the level of pain the client experiences.
Massage Techniques: Derivative friction, Joint movements (passive movements of the joints), deep kneading for the muscles for pain relief. Also, hot paraffin wax treatments work well as well as compression garments.
Massage is valuable in the treatment of diabetes accompanied by exhaustion or great weakness since the amount of exercise needed to burn the surplus sugar is impossible for them to perform.
Diabetes Mellitus: a condition in which the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or when stop responding to the insulin that is produced so that glucose in the blood can’t be absorbed into the cells of the body (frequently. urination, excessive thirst, hunger). It’s a metabolic disease that has too high blood sugar glucose.
Massage more readily relieves the secondary fatigue brought on by exercise in those who suffer from diabetic disorders than any other means.
Massage Techniques: Centripetal friction to increase the circulation, deep kneading for the muscles with healthy tissues-helps dropping glucose levels, and Trigger points therapy is supportive, also stretching and lymphatic drainage is supportive.
Circularly System: Massage and joint movements help those with chronic diseases of the heart (heart disease) by aiding circulation and thus relieving the heart of a portion of work. It also allows the heart to improve its nutrition.In Edema and allied conditions, centripetal friction of the extremities is the most powerful of all means of aiding the venous circulation.Edema: Is an excessive accumulation of serous fluid in tissue spaces or a body cavity. It is the increase of interstitial fluid in any organ or tissue.After exercise, centrifugal friction quiets the circulation. Quieting the circulation is also helpful in insomnia from cerebral congestion ( implies a condition where there is an excess amount of blood in the blood vessels of the brain; it can be due to too much sun exposure, blow to the head, or excess excitement). This method can also be used to assist those who have overdeveloped hearts due to valvular disease or obstruction to the pulmonary circulation due to lung disease.
Massage Techniques: centripetal friction of the extremities is aiding venous & lymphatic circulation. Lymphatic drainage is generally accepted by the medical community as a benefit in improving circulation and reducing swelling caused by edema.
Raynaud’s Disease: It is a circulatory disorder caused by the insufficient blood supply to the hands and feet and resulting in cyanosis, numbness, pain, and, in extreme cases, gangrene.Massage Techniques: In Raynaud’s disease no means is of greater value than local massage, centrifugal friction, derivative friction, kneading, percussion and also joint movements.
