Under the banka massage influence repipheral circulation of blood, lymph and intertissue liquid becomes better. Stagnation is ellminated. Metabolism and dermal respiration in the massaged segment of a body are intensified. Skin becomes more elastic, its resistance to temperature and mechanical factors is increased, muscles retracting function is improved, and tone and elasticity of muscles are increased. In applying of the vacuum therapy, sebaceous and perspiration glands secrete their extract. The extract contains, besides salts, urea, acetone, bile acids, which in certain concentrations are toxic for an organism, this makes it possible to compare the banka massage method with the bath effect.

One starts to massage above the injured place (the reflexive-distractive massage), descending little by little to the parts adjoining the injured area.

Physiotherapeutic "banki" procedure.

The medical effect of the physiotherapeutic "banki" procedure is realized by means of the vacuum, which causes the local rush of blood and lymph to skin from deep lying tissues, which exerts the reflex influence on vessels of internal organs.
