Developed in the 1980s by two French physiotherapists, microkinesitherapy is a massage technique that seeks to detect and eliminate old traumatic lesions. Indeed, the tissues of our organism can keep the sequelae deeply buried after undergoing an external attack. This is called memorizing aggression. If they cannot be visualized by medical imaging, these scar marks can nevertheless be the cause of various symptoms. This is why this technique can potentially relieve all types of disorders (muscular, articular, inflammatory, etc.).
The goal of microkinesitherapy being to find the original trace of the aggression, the practitioner will conduct an investigation. Using precise manual gestures, he will thus seek to detect areas of resistance that could conceal an old trauma. Once the place of the assault has been found, the masseur will somehow wake up the area by practicing light palpations. The goal ? Make that scar disappear. To do this, it uses the self-correction mechanism with which our immune system is equipped to restore damaged tissues and impaired functions.
The first session of microkinesitherapy begins with an interview with the physiotherapist trained in this practice. This step is essential for the practitioner, because it allows him to obtain valuable information on the medical and personal history of his patient. On average, a session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. The masseur will begin his intervention on a dressed patient by carrying out an “inventory” of potentially pathogenic traumas. Once the problematic scar (s) have been identified, it will begin to manipulate it, the objective of which will ultimately be to trigger the body’s self-healing process.
