Physiological massage has the advantage that it can prevent injuries, because it molds the deep tissue of the body. Physiological massage is a harder massage form, and will potentially be a bit more painful for the receiver than the softer form like e.g. wellness massage, as the masseur works in the depth of the different muscles preventing potential injuries.
Physiological massage takes awareness from the masseur of how the body is built and structured: The masseur should have profound knowledge on the condition of the muscles, where the muscle is attached, how they work, and how injuries can be prevented.
