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).

Our Story 

The Professional Massage Mitts are a pair of silicon massage mitts designed and patented GB2543361 by a qualified state registered chartered physiotherapist.

At the time of her idea conception of the Professional Massage Mitts the physio was working long hours providing treatments in a very busy physiotherapy clinic.

The Mitts were designed out of necessity, the physio was suffering from repetitive strain injuries to their wrists and hands. The Mitts have integrated support to protect the therapist’s hands and external nodules for increased tactile surface to enhance sensory massage stimulation. 

They can be used for self-massage or as an aid for symptom/pain relief from allied health professionals for more complex soft tissue mobilisation procedures. 

Over time and after hundreds of patients’ feedback along with numerous testimonials, it was obvious that this self-massaging tool empowered people, enabling them to do something for themselves and help reduce their musculoskeletal symptoms of general aches and pains for themselves.

 

Design Features of the Massage Mitts as a Therapeutic Massage Tool

  • Surface nodules of various dimensions.
  • The quality and consistency of the silicone nodules have encompassed features for optimum body conditioning and maximum contact.
  • The nodules increase sensory stimulation and sensory feedback. 
  • Made with medical/food grade silicone.

After using the massage mitts on your skin for even just a couple of minutes you will begin to feel changes to the quality of the tissue within that area.

Almost immediately you will notice the tissue relaxing.

 The simple science behind how it works

  • The unique shape of the massage mitts and its nodules increases sensory input to keep the brain informed, and provide pressure to increase feedback to improve condition and function.  
  • They provide an increased textured surface area to improve sensory date for the brain to decode and re-program.  
  • The nodules on the mitts also stimulate the fascial and musculoskeletal systems of the body, which in turn will naturally reduce tension, repair, and hydrate and oxygenate the tissue.  
  • The nodules on the mitts provide a brief mechanical stretch affecting the skin, soft tissue, sub-dermal structures and deeper fascia.

You can use the mitts with a variation of gentle massage, pressure, duration and direction to initiate and increase the self-healing and self-regulating physiological responses.  

Massage with the massage mitts promotes healing and flexibility by stimulating the body’s own physiological responses to reducing stiffness and pain. Massage initiates the body’s own homeostatic processes by stimulating the soft tissue where you are massaging thus turning the stimuli into nature’s own biochemical and neurophysiological responses, improving well-being and restoring function.

Hand Size Guide 

Instruction on how to put the mitts on How to use the massage mitts-

Apply massage oil to area you wish to massage. If your skin is dry you may need two coverings of oil. Rub the excess oil around your hand so the mitts glide onto your hands. An alternative is to use them in the shower or bath with you usual shower and bath products. Wet the skin then apply the soap or shower gel, gentle massage the chosen area on the body for 2-5 minutes then wash the soap off. 

Smaller hands - after pulling the mitts onto the hand via the tab located at the front of your wrist joint will need to push the mitts together via the web space between the thumb joint and the main parts of the mitts. 

Medium sized hands - will just need to pull on the wrist tab to aid positioning.

Larger hands - will need to rotate their hands at 90 degree angles at the twist opening then rotate their hands into the mitt while puling in the wrist tab. They are very sturdy don't be frightened of breaking them, they will stretch. 

The mitts are one size for all. 

Use stroking, effleurage and large circular movement buy gliding the flat hand over the skin. The more nodules that come into contact to the skin the better the results. (Try not to use just your fingers and thumbs while massaging).
