Petrissage is a focussed massage movement concentrating on specific muscle groups. Muscle is compressed beneath either the fingertips or the fist, in small circular movements releasing toxins that have built up in the muscles.

 

 

Followed by Effleurage to sweep away the crystalline deposits of lactic acid, Petrissage is an intensely deep massaging movement which aids in the elimination of 'knots' and increases blood flow to congested deep muscular tissue.
