Treatments

Sports Massage

A range of massage techniques involving the manipulation of soft tissue. Soft tissue includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.   Sports Massage is designed to restore mobility and function to injured muscle tissue and to assist in correcting muscle imbalances that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of Sports  Massage before and after exercise may enhance  performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is very different  to the Holistic Massage  which is generally gentle and relaxing.   When a muscle is tight, stressed, overused or injured, scar tissue and bands of painful, rigid connective  tissue and adhesions can form which blocks circulation, triggers pain, limits movement and prevents the muscle from  functioning optimally.  The flow of  oxygen and nutrients to the muscle is reduced which leads to a build up of  toxins in the muscle.  Deep Tissue Massage will  loosen the adhesions, break down scar tissue and improve the circulation within  the muscle, pushing out toxins and allowing nutrients and oxygen in.

Postural Correction

If a muscle is not functioning correctly the body will soon develop an imbalance and become asymmetrical.  Other areas of the body begin to move unnaturally to compensate.  With this compensation faulty movement patterns will occur, and over time the faults cause pain and stiffness.  Eventually these muscles will tighten and a decrease in muscle function will follow.  This tightening can cause postural deformities, such as hunched or rounded shoulders, head jutting forward, and excessive curvature of the spine. These problems can cause pain and discomfort and will eventually lead to impaired movement and loss of muscle function. 

Postural Correction, using a wide variety of advanced massage techniques, can restore natural symmetry and minimise injury ensuring the body functions optimally.

 

Neuromuscular Technique or Trigger Point Therapy

An assessment and treatment system to relieve pain by releasing trigger points and resetting the neurological pathway between the brain and the muscle, allowing the muscle to return to normal function.

Soft Tissue Release

An advanced technique, particularly beneficial to anyone who maintains static posture for long periods.  Office workers and drivers who sit in the same position will often have muscle tension and pain in the shoulder, neck and back.  Soft Tissue Release can alleviate pain by stretching the muscle fibres, tendons and fascia, easing pain and re-aligning the muscle fibres so that the muscle can function optimally.

Muscle Energy Techniques

Often used for clients with muscle tightening or shortening.  Muscle Energy Technique uses isometric and isotonic muscle contraction to improve musculoskeletal function, mobilise joints where movement is restricted and improve circulation.

Connective Tissue Massage

A special technique aimed at the layer between the skin and the muscle. Tension here can restrict the nutrient supply to the muscles and affect the elasticity of the connective tissue. When tension builds here adhesions can form, between the layers, which will restrict movement. Connective Tissue Massage breaks apart any adhesions resulting in relaxation and improved circulation.

Taping and Strapping

Kinesio taping for sports performance, acute injury management, injury support, postural correction and muscle imbalance.
