Should you be in need of some time out from the daily stresses that life can often bring, I can also help you find this with a deeply relaxing therapeutic massage.
Advanced Remedial Massage
Advanced remedial massage differs greatly from a relaxation massage. In order to identify the musculoskeletal dysfunction that is causing pain or discomfort, an in-depth consultation is taken and appropriate orthopaedic assessments are used. This combination allows the treatment to be far more efficient and effective.
Sports Massage & Rehabilitation
Sports massage treatment is a beneficial tool to incorporate into any level of training regime. It works by engaging deeply with the soft tissue structures of the body allowing improved muscle function, flexibility and mobility. It is also highly recommended during pre and post events to both prepare the muscles and assist recovery.
Orthopaedic Massage & Manipulation
Orthopaedic manipulation is a form of manual therapy which facilitates normal movement of a joint by restoring correct anatomical alignment. When the joint is free to move through its full range of motion, blood flow, nervous stimuli and muscle tissue are at their most optimal.
Orthopaedic Dry Needling
Orthopaedic dry needling involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into myofascial trigger points and homeostatic points. It is a from of intramuscular manual therapy which facilitates an anti-inflammatory immune reaction to bring about self-healing and internal balance.
The Kinesio Taping technique is a therapeutic tape application developed to support joints and muscles, without restricting range of motion. The Tex Tape can be used to both inhibit tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles. It can also be used to stabilise joints following ligament sprains and can be used to aid lymphatic drainage to reduce swelling and bruising.
Basalt Hot Stone Massage
Stone massage is the application of volcanic tumbled stones during massage treatment. This form of therapy is thought to have been used for over 4000 years by many different cultures including the native americans, ancient Romans and the Egyptians.
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage has been in existence in various forms for thousands of years. The traditional art of Indian Head Massage is based upon the ancient system of medicine known as Ayureveda which is Sanskrit for ‘the science of life and longevity’.
