Extension using the Domnik and Biehl methods

Domnik extension massage :
The Domnik method of cervical extension massage is a manual, three-dimensional traction technique that uses surface transverse friction to reduce nociceptor activity and activate mechanoreceptors. Light traction and rotational and translational movements inhibit pain and improve fluid circulation in tissues.

Biehl extension massage:
In the Biehl method, a Glisson's sling is used to apply three-phase cervical traction. The procedure is comparable with the Domnik extension massage.
