Many patients and clients prefer direct skin contact during massage. Skin contact with masseurs has been shown to help reduce stress, release endorphins, stimulate the immune system and contribute to an overall increased sense of wellbeing. Skin contact between masseurs and their patients builds trust and is often used at the beginning of a therapeutic treatment to calm and ground the patient. The benefits of direct skin contact in massage are obvious.
Nevertheless, the UMATI is an ideal complement and extension of the existing range of treatments, especially for massage therapists. The UMATI is not in competition with classical forms of massage. Rather, the UMATI complements and expands them, refines them and arouses curiosity. Your patients will understand the UMATI as a ritual companion that can initiate or round off the treatment. If your patients have taken a fancy to the UMATI, treatments in which the UMATI is the sole focus may be appropriate. Your experience as a massage therapist will show you ways to integrate the UMATI individually into the treatments, depending on the type of clients and their needs.
There are also certain cases in massage practice where the use of UMATI is even essential for reaching maximum effect. For example, in sensitisation or desensitisation. UMATI is an important adjuvant tool when working on areas of the body with large and dense muscle and fat tissue where simple handwork is difficult and does not produce the desired effect. Or conversely, when working on hypersensitive areas, where any touch with the hands causes negative reactions, treatment with UMATI enables a quick and effective desensitisation of the tissue and prepares this area of the body for further necessary treatments.
One of the many advantages of UMATI is that even deep-seated tensions, where manual treatment may well be perceived as uncomfortable, can be tapped without physical exertion and still be painless for the patient.
