What is Minohara Rolling Therapy?

Massage therapy, also known as Swedish massage, is the most common form of massage therapy, which the therapists use their hands and fingers.

Although Minohara Rolling therapy is a manual therapy, rolling therapists manipulate roller tools to give muscle tissues and skin tender stimulation.

In 1968, this original and patented method was established by the Minohara family in Japan.

How does it work?

Minohara Rolling therapy is a method of massage that improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and also helps clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
Rolling therapists use smooth strokes, pressing softly, and other movements focused on not only superficial layers of muscle,but also deep tissues using various kinds of roller tools.
