Therapies I offer:
-Deep Tissue Massage
Uses techniques that utilize deep pressure to affect the sublayer muscles in areas of discomfort. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques.
Applies specific motions, stretching, and pressures on the body’s muscles that are part of a training regimen for specific sports and designed to maximize performance before, during, and after physical exertion.
New to the UK, advanced sports massage techniques for the treatment of orthopeadic conditions, great to release frozen shoulder and other complicated chronic pains and injuries.
Includes techniques that provide massage to fully clothed back, neck, shoulders, and arms. Seated massage is also available on-site.
Fascia is a layer of connective tissue between the skin and muscles all over the body, sometimes causing an all over tense feeling. The fiber component is affected by stretching methods that elongate the fibers to release the bind.
A specially tailored deep tissue massage for the mum to be, it helps with the aches and pains from the pregnancy as well as help reducing swelling.
Remedial massage is based on the fact that soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) respond to touch. Most pain is myofascial (soft tissue) in origin. Trigger points, (sensitive points in muscles, which radiate or refer pain to various parts of the body) can mimic many conditions. Muscles not only move our joints, they stabilise them, and they provide armour for the internal organs, and minor problems with these functions can cause more pain than most people realise. For example most headaches originate in the muscles of the neck and head.
Most abdominal and pelvic pain can be caused by trigger points in the abdominal and pelvic muscles.Low back pain and sciatic pain are far more likely to originate in muscles than in vertebral disc problems.
