What Is Cross Friction Massage?

Cross Friction Massage or Transverse Friction Massage is a massage technique which is performed on the target spot where the injury is. The core purpose of this massage is to help to breakdown the scar tissue and then remodel the same tissue into a much more flexible, functional, pliable and healthy soft tissue for its normal functioning.

How does Cross Friction Massage work?

Scar tissue is your body’s response to an acute injury or repetitive microtrauma. For some types of injury your body will form scar tissue over the injured area. This scar tissue is actually layers of collagen, a connective tissue. Cross friction massage, when done correctly, promotes blood circulation to the injured tissue and proper alignment and healing of the collagen fibers. This proper healing helps to avoid the formation of adhesions and unwanted scar tissue that can limit mobility. Cross friction massage breaks down scar tissue through consistent applied pressure and friction.

Following a few sessions of Cross Friction Massage some patients report relief of pain and an increase in strength and mobility. This technique is very effective in treating muscle, tendon and ligament injuries under both acute and chronic conditions.
