Soft Tissue Therapy Icon

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy combines various remedial and advanced manual techniques to help with chronic tightness, dysfunctional postural tendencies (a position that puts your spine and other joints out of their normal balanced alignment) and injuries to the musculoskeletal system, namely, muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective/fascial tissues.

This type of treatment can help with:

  • Improving posture
  • Improving the function of the muscular skeletal system
  • Recovering from injury
  • Maintenance for an athlete
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Improving the range of movement at a joint
  • Reducing stress, increasing endorphins
Pregnancy Masage Icon

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is similar to a classic massage but has been tailored to accommodate for a women’s size and shape, with the addition of pillows and supports as well as a gentler pressure whilst massaging. The combination of relaxation and stimulating messages to the receptor help a woman's body to work more effectively during pregnancy.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage:

  • Helps to relieve stress on weight bearing joints
  • Helps with the common discomforts during pregnancy: muscular discomforts, back pain, headaches, cramps, stiffness and tension
  • Increases circulation, which helps to provide more oxygen and nutrients to both mother and baby. Also stimulates the lymph system which helps increase immunity and removal of toxins
  • Increases endorphins which reduces depression or anxiety
  • Helps improve sleep patterns
Sports Massage Icon

Sports Massage

Sports massage focuses more on treating specific minor and chronic injuries. By utilising a wide range of techniques, such as deep tissue massage and active/passive stretching, the muscle fibres can be loosened and realigned. Although a sports massage will greatly benefit an athlete, this technique can be used for anyone.

Sports massage can help with problems such as:

  • Muscular and joint injuries - sprains or strains
  • Improving posture
  • Headaches, such as tension headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Golfers or tennis elbow
  • RSI (repetitive strain injuries)
  • Back pain

The benefits of sports massage are:

  • Reducing muscular tension, pain and discomfort
  • Decreased muscular stiffness and soreness after exercise
  • Decreased recovery time in-between sessions
  • Increased range of movement, which in turn, helps with enhancing performance
  • Decrease in stress and tension, increase in relaxation and endorphins
Taping Icon

Strapping and Taping

Strapping and taping is used to secure or stabilise an injury or aggravated joint. The tape will allow the joint to move freely in directions that do not cause pain but will restrict the movement that causes pain. The tape normally only stays on for one day but can stay on for up to 48 hours - if you get symptoms such as itching, redness or numbness then the tape should be removed immediately! Taping and strapping is not for permanent use to an injury - it is only a to help during recovery.

Benefits of Kinesiology Tape

  • Pain relief
  • Muscle activation
  • Injury recovery
  • Swelling control
  • Postural correction
  • Assisting athletic & sports performance

Benefits of rigid tape:

  • Injury prevention
  • Muscle de-activation
  • Surrounding muscle support
  • Pain relief
  • Joint support and stability
  • Helps continue activity
Cupping Icon

Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial cupping is an alternative therapy which dates back to earlier Egyptian, Chinese and Middle Eastern times that has been modified to use plastic cups targeting the Musculoskeletal System. Rather than applying pressure in a downward motion during a massage, the vacuum draws the soft tissue gently upwards, this provides a tensile force to the soft tissue. This can either be left in the same area for a period of time or moved along the tissue. It helps with pain, inflammation and draws out the toxins that are in the body.

Benefits of Myofascial Cupping:

  • Increases nutrient-rich blood supply to the injured area

  • Increases the fluid movement which assists in recovery ie: decreased oedema (fluid accumulation)

  • Creates tensile pressure, caused by the vacuum, which passively stretches the myofascial tissue, resulting in increased Range Of Movement

  • Assists in the reduction of localised inflammation and aids recovery

  • Ideal for people for whom the insertion of acupuncture needles poses a problem or risk

Cupping can help with problems such as:

  • Musculoskeletal Pain & Injuries

  • Sporting Injuries, especially ITB Syndrome & Plantar Fasciitis

  • Neck and Back Pain

  • Muscle Strains and Sprains

  • Muscle Imbalances and Tightness
