The word comes from the Greek word "Chiros" (hands) and "massage" (to press softly) and it literally means "a massage applied with the hands".
Chiromassage is a combination of techniques that use the therapist´s hands to treat the patient´s different ailments.
What Chiromassage offers is health and relaxation and it is based fundamentally on the mechanical action of the hands on the skin using some movements that are called "handing".
This "handing" movements are performed in a very specific rhythm and speed and they have an immediate effect on the skin, the nervous system, the circulatory system or the skeletal-muscle system, among others.
The objective is to the make the patient´s soft tissue lose tension, relax or be stimulated by using the chiroherapist movements of the hands.
