Massage therapy


Massage therapy is a hands-on therapeutic approach that involves the manipulation of soft tissues in the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. It aims to promote relaxation, alleviate muscle tension, improve circulation, and enhance overall well-being. Various techniques -quiromassage/deep connective tissue massage/sports massage/fascia therapy/energetic bodywork/cupping - are used and tailored to individual needs.


Massage therapy can be beneficial for a range of conditions:

  • Muscle tension and pain: relieving muscle tightness, soreness, and discomfort.

  • Stress and anxiety: Massage helps reduce stress hormones and promotes relaxation, which can alleviate symptoms of anxiety.

  • Chronic pain: Individuals with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis may find relief from regular massage sessions.

  • Injury rehabilitation: Massage aids in the recovery of soft tissue injuries by improving circulation and reducing scar tissue formation.

  • Headaches and migraines: Tension in the neck and shoulder muscles can contribute to headaches, and massage can help alleviate this tension.

  • Improved sleep: Massage promotes relaxation, which can contribute to better sleep quality.

  • Circulatory issues: By enhancing blood flow, massage may contribute to improved circulatory function.

  • Joint mobility: Massage can enhance flexibility and range of motion in joints

  • It is essential that you consult with a medical healthcare professional for specific health concerns and to ensure that massage therapy is an appropriate complement to your medical treatment plan.

  • Albert Garcia Ordinas does not offer prenatal pregnancy massages.

Fascia therapy


Fascia therapy, also known as fascial manipulation or myofascial release, is a technique that focuses on the fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones, and organs. I use manual manipulation techniques, taping and cupping for the treatment and relief of (myo)fascial complaints.

Fascia therapy might help with various conditions:

  • Musculoskeletal pain: It may be used to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with musculoskeletal issues, such as muscle strains, joint problems, and chronic pain conditions.

  • Postural issues: Fascia therapy aims to improve posture by addressing imbalances or restrictions in the fascial system, potentially reducing strain on muscles and joints.

  • Range of motion improvement: By releasing tension in the fascia, this therapy may enhance flexibility and improve the range of motion in joints.

  • Injury rehabilitation: Fascia therapy can be part of rehabilitation programs for injuries, aiming to restore normal tissue function and reduce scar tissue formation.

  • Chronic conditions: It is sometimes used as a complementary approach for conditions like fibromyalgia, where musculoskeletal pain and stiffness are prominent features.

  • Headaches and migraines: Fascia therapy may contribute to relieving tension and reducing pain associated with headaches or migraines.

  • Scar tissue management: It is employed to address restrictions in fascial tissues caused by surgery or injuries, promoting better healing and minimizing scar tissue formation.

  • It is essential that you consult with a medical healthcare professional for specific health concerns and to ensure that fascia therapy is an appropriate complement to your medical treatment plan.

  • Albert Garcia Ordinas does not provide fascia therapy during pregnancy.

Scar therapy


Manual scar therapy, also known as scar tissue massage or manual scar work therapy, is a hands-on approach aimed at addressing and improving the quality of scar tissue by breaking down scar tissue, improving blood circulation to the affected area, promoting tissue elasticity, and addressing sensitivity.


Some of its common uses and benefits:

  • Post-Surgical scars: Manual scar therapy is often applied to scars resulting from surgeries to optimize the healing process and minimize the impact of scarring.

  • Traumatic scars: Scars from injuries, accidents, or trauma might benefit from manual scar therapy to reduce adhesions and improve function.

  • Improving blood circulation: The massage techniques used in scar therapy can enhance blood circulation to the scarred area. Improved circulation supports the healing process and helps soften the scar tissue.

  • Reducing scar size and appearance: While complete removal of a scar may not be possible, manual scar therapy might help minimize its size, improve texture, and make it less noticeable.

  • Preventing adhesions: After surgeries or injuries, scar tissue may form adhesions, leading to stiffness and restricted movement. Manual scar therapy aims to break down scar tissue to prevent or reduce these adhesions.

  • Promoting tissue elasticity: By working on the scar tissue, therapists aim to improve tissue elasticity and flexibility.

  • Enhancing range of motion: For scars located near joints, manual scar therapy can be instrumental in improving range of motion and preventing joint stiffness.

  • Alleviating discomfort: Scar tissue can sometimes cause discomfort or pain. Manual scar therapy aims to alleviate these symptoms by addressing the scar tissue's quality.

  • Addressing sensitivity: Scar tissue can sometimes become hypersensitive or painful. Manual scar therapy involves techniques aiming to desensitize the scar and alleviate discomfort.


  • It's important to note that the effectiveness of manual scar therapy can vary based on factors such as the type and age of the scar, the individual's healing response and other health and lifestyle factors.

  • Before undergoing scar therapy, individuals should consult with a medical healthcare professional to ensure that it's suitable for their specific situation. 

  • I (Albert Garcia Ordinas) do not treat C-section or burn scars. 



Cupping massage therapy is a therapeutic practice that involves placing cups on the skin and creating suction to draw the skin and underlying tissues including superficial muscle layer into the cup, promoting increased blood flow to the area. Cups may be left in place (static cupping) or moved across the skin in a gliding motion (dynamic cupping).


Its common uses and benefits, as well as contraindications:

  • Pain relief: Cupping is often used to alleviate muscle and joint pain.

  • Muscle relaxation: The suction effect helps relax muscles by increasing blood circulation and promoting the release of tension.

  • Improving circulation: Cupping stimulates blood flow, potentially aiding in the removal of toxins and promoting overall circulation.

  • Reduce inflammation: Cupping may have anti-inflammatory effects, making it beneficial for conditions with localized inflammation.

  • Relief from respiratory issues: In some cases, cupping is applied to the back to help address respiratory issues.

  • Relaxation and stress reduction: Cupping therapy can promote relaxation and help reduce stress and anxiety.

  • Enhance range of motion: Cupping may contribute to improved flexibility and range of motion, especially when addressing muscle stiffness.

  • It is essential that you consult with a medical healthcare professional for specific health concerns and to ensure that cupping massage therapy is an appropriate complement to your medical treatment plan.

  • Albert Garcia Ordinas does not provide cupping massage therapy during pregnancy.

Manal lymph drainage


Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a specialized massage technique designed to stimulate the lymphatic system, which plays a crucial role in maintaining fluid balance, immune function, and waste removal in the body. MLD employs gentle, circular, and rhythmic movements applied with minimal pressure to stimulate the lymphatic vessels and nodes. The massage follows specific pathways along the lymphatic system, aiming to redirect lymphatic fluid towards the lymph nodes where it can be filtered and processed. 


Here's a brief overview of its common uses and benefits, and contraindications:

  • ​Edema reduction: MLD is widely used to reduce edema (swelling) caused by conditions such as lymphedema, post-surgery swelling, or inflammatory responses.

  • Post-surgical recovery: It is commonly applied after certain surgeries, such as lymph node removal or cosmetic surgeries, to support the process of healing and reduce swelling.

  • Detoxification: MLD may aid in detoxification by promoting the removal of waste products and toxins from the body.

  • Enhanced immune function: By facilitating lymphatic flow, MLD may support the immune system by improving the transport of immune cells throughout the body.

  • Chronic conditions: MLD may be used in managing chronic conditions like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis to alleviate symptoms.

  • Stress reduction: Despite its therapeutic nature, MLD can be relaxing, contributing to stress reduction.

  • It is essential that you consult with a medical healthcare professional for specific health concerns and to ensure that MLD therapy is an appropriate complement to your medical treatment plan.

  • Albert Garcia Ordinas does not provide MLD therapy during pregnancy.



Magnesium is an essential mineral with various health benefits, including its role in muscle function, nerve function, and energy production. Some therapists incorporate magnesium oil into massage sessions, believing that the absorption of magnesium through the skin may complement the therapeutic effects of massage.


Magnesium treatments can support with:

  • Muscle relaxation: Magnesium is known to have muscle-relaxing properties. Applying magnesium topically may help alleviate muscle tension.

  • Reduced muscle cramping: Athletes or individuals prone to muscle cramps may find relief through dermal magnesium application, as magnesium is crucial for proper muscle function.

  • Stress reduction: Magnesium is often referred to as the "relaxation mineral." It may contribute to a sense of calm and relaxation, potentially helping to reduce stress and anxiety.

  • Improved sleep quality: Adequate magnesium levels are associated with better sleep. Dermal magnesium application before bedtime may promote relaxation and contribute to improved sleep quality.

  • Migraine relief: Magnesium supplementation is sometimes recommended for individuals experiencing migraines. Dermal application may be an alternative method for those who have difficulty with oral supplements.

  • Skin health: Magnesium plays a role in skin health, and topical application may contribute to maintaining healthy skin.

  • Pain management: People with chronic pain conditions may use dermal magnesium application as part of their pain management strategy. 

  • Energy boost: Magnesium is involved in energy production at the cellular level. Some users claim that dermal magnesium application provides a natural energy boost.

  • Magnesium levels: For individuals with low magnesium levels, topical application can be an additional method to complement dietary sources or oral supplements. 

  • Massage therapy with magnesium might combined with a magnesium wrap with an infrared sauna blanket for 40 minutes at 40ºC to encourage the release of toxins and boost the treatment.

  • While magnesium massage therapy can offer numerous benefits, it's essential to consult with a qualified medical healthcare professional for specific health concerns and to ensure that magnesium massage therapy is an appropriate complement to your medical treatment plan.
