What is Massage Therapy?
It is a form of manual medicine focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain, involving the treatment of nerves, joints and muscles, acting on all three during a treatment. Massage therapy aims at restoring and maintaining normal balance in muscles, tendons and ligaments by treating muscular pain and dysfunction. We focus on the prevention and rehabilitation of all muscular conditions.
We use a range of modalities such as; acupuncture, dry needling, trigger point therapy, postural assessment, deep tissue massage, cupping, heat treatment, stretching and rehabilitation exercises. These modalities restore neuromuscular function, increase joint range and mobility and decrease pain.
Remedial Massage treats pain associated with:
Muscular Aches & Pain – Whiplash – R.S.I
Shoulder Pain – Frozen Shoulder – Joint Pain
Headaches & Migraines – Pre and Post Natal – Plantar Fasciitis
Sports Injuries – Nerve Pain – Sciatica
Hip/Groin Pain – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Sprains & Strains – Stress Disorders
Jaw Pain – Tennis & Golfers Elbow
Postural assessments is used to find any muscular imbalances and dysfunctions that may be causing pain.
DEEP SOFT-TISSUE MASSAGE:
Deep soft-tissue massage aims to realign deep layers of muscle and connective tissue which in turn will increase blood supply and eliminate muscular dysfunctions such as; back pain, postural anomalies, neck pain, lower back pain, chronic shoulder problems and more.
The aim of dry needling is to restore muscle function by eliminating trigger points and the restoration of neuromuscular function. When the needle is inserted into the muscle it stimulates a local flow of blood, which promotes healing. It helps block the neural pathway that causes pain, and the body’s natural pain killers are released to inhibit pain and inflammatory cycle. Dry needling is very effective on dysfunctions such as, muscle tears, trigger point elimination, tendinopathies, headaches, acute and chronic pain, plantar fasciitis and more.
Cupping increases blood flow to tissues, decreases muscle tightness, increases joint mobilisation and sedates the nervous system and stretches out fascial tissue. The cups are applied to the skin superficially using a suction technique. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles migraines and more.
Heat therapy is used to increase blood supply to a muscle before, during or after a treatment. This treatment works well for releasing tight contracted muscles and decreasing pain.
REHABILITATION AND CORRECTIVE EXERCISES:
Tailored stretches and corrective rehabilitative exercises for clients with musculoskeletal disorders, postural dysfunctions and sports specific injuries and re-training.
