Professional Massage Mitts

The Professional Massage Mitts are a therapeutic, multi-directional massage tool designed to enhance self-massage. They can be used for rehabilitation and soft tissue mobilisation techniques for musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.

They may be used as an aid for patient autonomous rehabilitation pre- and post-surgery, in an out-patient setting, and for allied health professionals to administer more intensive and complex procedures for the management of scar tissue.

Massage with the mitts provides a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical alternative to reduce the symptoms of numerous musculoskeletal acute and chronic conditions, for rehabilitation pre- & post-surgery to reduce pain and restore function.

The Mitts harness the knowledge of decades of physiotherapy and complementary therapies to create a highly functional and time saving pair of massage mitts. They have numerous therapeutic applications.  They reduce the impact of hours of massage and soft tissue mobilising techniques on the therapists’ hands and encompass years of scientific research.

After using the Mitts on your skin even for a couple of minutes the tension of the tissue and fascia changes and soften. Dysfunctions of the fascia have been recognised as an indication of various symptoms, including scar tissue, musculoskeletal pain and altered soft tissue configurations that reduce functional movement.

Sports massage has long been used to reduce or resolve pain and dysfunction and to use as part of a rehabilitation programme between training and after events. The soft tissue massage techniques of remedial sport massage help restore function and aid the recovery process.  Sports massage is considered important in rehabilitation; it is used to optimise the athlete’s health to stimulate biomechanical and physiological processes necessary to optimise performance, conditioning, maintenance support.  It is indicated that using the mitts post sporting events reduce the effects of the delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS).
