Remedial / Deep Tissue Massage
This is our signature treatment style here at the clinic, we use a combination of techniques including Remedial, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release to get an effective and longer lasting result. But please, don’t get put off by all the different names and jargon. We therapists love using the technical terms for what we do! This is an effective, holistic treatment, which allows us to work WITH the body not against it. Working our way to the cause of your pain, not the symptoms, to ensure the best results for you. And that’s all that really matters, right :0)
In our experience, some people can get put off by the term Deep Tissue, thinking that it simply means a “hard” massage, but this is not necessarily the case.
Deep tissue work done effectively and with intention can be a rewarding experience, the therapist works s – l – o – w -l – y with the tissue sinking through the various layers at the body’s own pace allowing for:
- A deeper release of constricted and tight muscles
- Freeing up any adhesions
- Deactivating trigger points (points of intense pain when stimulated) in the muscles and fascia.
It’s worth noting that although the treatment itself can be relaxing, you might be expected to interact during the treatment, changing body positions and moving joints and muscles in order to effect a release.
This is an excellent treatment for releasing patterns of chronic tension throughout the body, which arise from poor posture and long periods in front of the computer and is an effective treatment for chronic conditions resulting from stress, overuse or injury.
Here are just a few of the conditions we’ve had success in treating:
- Chronic neck pain
- Shoulder injury
- Knee pain
- Chronic foot and ankle pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis elbow
- Hip pain
Why not give us a call today and see how we can help you, move and feel better.
Please arrive around 5 minutes early for you first treatment, that way we have time to discuss your treatment and to complete your intake forms without eating into your treatment time. Thank you.
