Oscillating Relaxation Therapy uses five styles of long, flowing strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. It has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis over a period of eight weeks. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation. It also increases oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles.
It also shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. It also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses.
