SERVICES WE OFFER
Deep tissue massage is focused on regaining normal muscle and soft tissue flexibility to assist recovery from or to help prevent injury. This form of massage works by increasing blood flow to the tissues, assisting with scar tissue breakdown, and encouraging lymphatic drainage of swelling and waste products. The effect of this is normalised soft tissue flexibility and thus improved joint mobility. Soft tissue tension affects the normal position of the joints and associated nerve tissue. Therefore it is often involved in movement imbalances, postural dysfunctions and is almost always a contributing factor in musculoskeletal pain.
Rehab treatment utilises the most appropriate and current techniques, including mobilisation, manipulation, soft-tissue massage and trigger point therapy and stretching. This is coupled with guided specific rehabilitation to educate, retrain, activate and strengthen the particular areas of your body to help alleviate your symptoms, achieve your identified goals and prevent future injury recurrence.
