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 in the tissue where you are massaging with activate nature's own biochemical and neurophysiological responses to improve well-being and restore function.

 

  • The basic elements of massage include gentle stroking movemnts 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 thesoft 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 to oxygenate and enhance the recovery process.

 

You can massage you whole body;

  • Face, head and neck
  • Upperback, neck and shoulders
  • Low back, hips and thighs
  • Abdomen/Stomach

How to use the Massage Mitts        

The Professional Remedial Massage Mitts are a therapeutic multi-directional massage tool designed to enhance basic massage and soft tissue mobilisation techniques.

  • General massage with non-silicone based carrier oils
  • Application of body oils/creams

When used even for just a few minutes three times a week will begin to reduce the accumulative effects of soft tissue tension and physical stress on body.

 

Gentle Body Massage

The basic elements of massage include gentle stroking movements over the body but you can massage with the mitts using various techniques. You can also adjust the duration and direction. They are effective in the reduction of both acute and chronic symptoms. By increasing blood flow and tissue oxygenation to soft tissue structures which leads to decreased pain and increased flexibility.  Perform simple massage techniques to reduce the symptoms of myofascial tension, scar tissue and soft tissue adhesion's.  

Instructions 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. Massage each body section for about 5-10 mins

Hand Size Guide 

One Size does NOT fit all!

 

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).

 

 

For Larger hands, rub oil on your hands before putting the Mitts on!

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 body safe silicone.

 

The flexibility of the mitts makes it easy to follow the contours of the body and keeps your hands relaxed for ease of movement. 

 

The Mitts unique shape and integral support protects the user from repetitive strain injuries and overuse of their wrist, hand and finger joints. 

 

The quality and consistency of the silicone and nodules has encompassed features for optimum body conditioning and maximum body contact.

 

The nodules increase sensory stimulation and sensory feedback.
