Soft Tissue Therapy
The treatment of the musculoskeletal system by palpation and manipulation.
Massage of the superficial and deep muscles and connective tissues, including fascia, tendons and ligaments, Soft tissue and fascia release and muscle energy techniques can help alleviate pain and dysfunction, break down scar tissue, improve range of movement and speed up recovery caused by exercise, over use, occupation, postural imbalances, medical conditions, scarring, and emotional stress. Specific or combined techniques may help alleviate the symptoms and promote healing for respiratory, circulatory and gastrointestinal disorders. Also, those with disorders of the central nervous system such as Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone disease may feel relief from their symptoms. Other benefits include removal of muscle waste, restored nutrition, improved circulation and promotes physical and psychological relaxation.
Treatment should not be painful as this will cause tension and inhibit manipulation. It is the relaxed muscle that responds well. There may be some aching and mild soreness to the tissues the following day, similar to that after exercising. Everyone can be treated. Every treatment is Individual. Everyone responds differently.
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
