    Explanation
    Kneading has several benefits for the body. Firstly, it helps to increase circulation, which means that blood and oxygen can flow more freely to the muscles and tissues, promoting healing and relaxation. Secondly, kneading creates activity inside the cell walls, which can improve cellular function and overall health. Additionally, kneading aids in the elimination of waste products from deep tissues, helping to detoxify the body. It also helps with the interchange of tissue fluids, allowing for better nutrient absorption and waste removal. Lastly, kneading has a decongestive action, which can help to reduce swelling and inflammation.

    Effleurage is defined as __________________

    Correct Answer(s)
    to lightly touch
    Explanation
    Effleurage is a technique used in massage therapy where the therapist lightly touches or glides their hands over the client's skin. This gentle and repetitive stroking motion helps to relax the muscles, improve blood circulation, and promote a sense of well-being. Effleurage is commonly used at the beginning and end of a massage session to warm up or cool down the body. It is also used as a transitional movement between different massage techniques. Overall, effleurage is a gentle and soothing touch that enhances the overall massage experience.

    In regards to hacking, if your fingers or hand is too tense the result will be a chopping action

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When it comes to hacking, having tense fingers or hand can lead to a chopping action. This means that if your fingers or hand are too tense, you may not be able to execute the precise and fluid movements required for hacking effectively. The tension can cause your movements to be abrupt and jerky, resembling a chopping action rather than the smooth and controlled actions needed for hacking. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Hacking is not primarily used to improve the tone of muscular tissue

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Hacking is not primarily used to improve the tone of muscular tissue. This means that hacking is not the main method or technique that is commonly used to enhance or strengthen the tone of muscular tissue. Therefore, the correct answer is False, indicating that the statement is not true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    By using the thumbs with a firmer approach, this technique is used on the upper back, as muscles here are often tense.

    • A.

      Always start with one short movement, either side of the spine, towards the head and increasing the pressure as you go.

    • B.

      Always start with one long movement, either side of the spine, towards the head and increasing the pressure as you go.

    • C.

      Always start with one long movement, either side of the spine, away from the head and increasing the pressure as you go.

    Correct Answer
    B. Always start with one long movement, either side of the spine, towards the head and increasing the pressure as you go.
    Explanation
    This technique involves using the thumbs with a firmer approach on the upper back, where muscles are often tense. To perform this technique correctly, one should always start with one long movement, either side of the spine, towards the head. The pressure should be increased as you move along. This helps to release tension and promote relaxation in the muscles of the upper back.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The rate of a hacking movement may be typically ____________ per second.

    • A.

      9-10 strikes

    • B.

      2-3 strikes

    • C.

      4-6 strikes

    • D.

      3-4 strikes

    Correct Answer
    C. 4-6 strikes
    Explanation
    The rate of a hacking movement may be typically 4-6 strikes per second. This suggests that hackers are capable of executing multiple strikes within a short period of time, indicating their efficiency and speed in carrying out hacking activities. This range of strikes per second also implies that hacking movements can occur at a relatively fast pace, potentially causing significant damage and compromising security systems.

    In some situations, especially whilst massaging the neck and shoulders, effleurage with the ______ is very effective and a good alternative to other techniques carried out with the palm of the hands, fists or thumbs.

    • A.

      Elbows

    • B.

      Fingertips

    • C.

      Knuckles

    • D.

      Forearm

    Correct Answer
    D. Forearm
    Explanation
    Effleurage is a massage technique that involves long, sweeping strokes using light to medium pressure. When massaging the neck and shoulders, using the forearm for effleurage can be very effective. This is because the forearm provides a larger surface area compared to the palm of the hands, fists, or thumbs, allowing for broader strokes and better coverage of the muscles. Additionally, using the forearm can help distribute the pressure more evenly, making it a good alternative technique for these areas.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Effleurage technique should be reasonably QUICK and rhythmic with the same speed being employed for both upwards and downwards movements, with no breaks between the two

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the statement is incorrect. The effleurage technique in massage should not be quick and rhythmic with the same speed for both upward and downward movements, and there should be breaks between the two movements. Effleurage is a slow, gentle, and continuous stroking movement that is used to warm up the muscles and promote relaxation. It is important to vary the speed and pressure during effleurage to provide a more effective massage experience.

    deep
    Explanation
    Petrissage is a massage technique that involves applying deep pressure to the underlying muscles. This technique uses kneading, wringing, skin rolling, and pick-up-and-squeeze movements to manipulate and compress the muscles. By applying deep pressure, petrissage helps to release tension, improve circulation, and promote relaxation.

      Surface of thumbs

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Padded palm surface of hand
    D. Surface of finger
    E. Surface of thumbs
    F. Surface of thumbs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is padded palm surface of hand, surface of finger, and surface of thumbs. This is because petrissage, a massage technique, is performed using these specific areas of the hand. The padded palm surface of the hand provides a broad and even pressure, while the surface of the fingers and thumbs can be used for more targeted and precise movements. The back of the hands and forearms are not typically used in petrissage.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Should petrissage be applied to inflamed areas?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Petrissage is a massage technique that involves kneading, squeezing, and rolling the muscles. It is generally not recommended to apply petrissage to inflamed areas because it can further irritate the tissues and potentially worsen the inflammation. Instead, other massage techniques such as effleurage or gentle compression should be used to reduce inflammation and promote healing.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The object of petrissage is to pick the tissue up and away from the ______and to roll it back with a squeezing or pressure action

    • A.

      Bone

    • B.

      Muscle

    • C.

      Subcataneus layer

    • D.

      Dermis

    Correct Answer
    A. Bone
    Explanation
    Petrissage is a massage technique that involves kneading and squeezing the tissues. The purpose of petrissage is to lift the tissue away from the underlying structures and manipulate it with pressure. In this case, the correct answer is "bone" because petrissage aims to mobilize the soft tissues, such as muscles and subcutaneous layers, by applying pressure on the bone underneath. By doing so, it helps improve blood circulation, relaxes muscle tension, and promotes overall relaxation and well-being.
