Transverse Friction Massage
What is transverse friction massage? Transverse means to go across and friction means to just apply pressure to the muscle underneath the skin. So transverse friction massage is basically moving the skin with your fingers, transverse over muscle fibers or across the muscle fibers. And basically the point of doing that is to break about lesions or muscle knots in the in the tissue, increase circulation and therefore increase flexibility and pliability of that muscle. And anytime you bring circulation to a muscle, you're going to decrease the problems that it has as far as pain and discomfort, things like that.
So basically to perform transverse friction, massage, you bring the joint into full range to full stretch and then take your fingers and just move across those muscle fibers and that's transverse friction massage.
