Our passionate massage therapists are experienced in a variety of techniques and understand the transformation massage can have, they are experts in remedial massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue massage, and sports massage.
Remedial massage is a hands-on assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. When muscles and tendons become damaged, impaired, knotted, tense or immobile, remedial massage provides an effective healing treatment.
Our skilled therapists are able to manipulate the soft tissue of your body so that it may:
- Increase circulation
- Reduce muscle tension and soreness
- Relieve stress
- Release scar tissue
- Improve and correct posture
- Increase joint flexibility
Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms. Remedial massage can enhance your daily life by reducing the effects of physical, mental and emotional stress on your body.
Remedial Massage is the combination of the following techniques to achieve the desired normalisation of soft tissue:
Trigger Point Therapy is a concentrated application of pressure on the trigger point, to break the cycle of pain and/or spasm. They are small nodules of tight and contracted fibres in the muscle. It is typically uncomfortable when first pressed but the sensation subsides with time as the contraction is released and the muscle opens up.
Myofascial Release gently stretches tight fascia, allowing fascia and muscle to relax, thereby improving stretch capability and range of motion. It aims at reducing pain and increasing muscle flexibility by realigning fascia and the muscle to which it is connected to a more normal condition.
Deep Tissue Massage uses slow strokes and deep hand pressure on areas of muscle tension, either following or against the direction of the muscles, tendons and fascia. It frees the muscles, facilitates the release of tension patterns and can restore suppleness, length and increased range of motion.
Sports massage is geared towards athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers, all of who rely on massage as an indispensable part of their training.
Sports massage when used regularly in the training regimen improves an athletes recovery after exertion, maintains their range of motion and reduces the risk of injury from overtraining.
