Remedial massage helps to restore health and function to damaged or compromised muscles, tendons and joints. Benefits can include the calming of the peripheral nervous system, removal of toxins, increased blood flow, toning and relaxing of muscles, increased joint mobility, and the easing of stiffness and pain.

Life happens and we can injure ourselves or simply have pain, through poor posture, repetitive movement (from work, sport or other activities) and also stress and anxiety. At your appointment we will perform a postural assessment and take a detailed history to work out the best treatment options for you. Your hands on treatment may include

  • FNFT – (Fast and Functional) a technique which involves gentle cross fibre movements over muscle with frequent testing of pain and restored range of motion
  • Trigger Point Therapy – applying pressure to trigger points gives either a localised or referred pain pattern which releases through the pressure applied, restoring range of motion to the compromised muscles
  • Myofascial Release – the release of fascia through skin stretching
  • PNF stretching – (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) involving the stretching and contracting of muscles
  • Cupping therapy
  • Dry Needling Therapy

Remedial massage can assist with many things including

  • Headaches and Migraines
  • TMD (jaw) pain
  • Postural problems
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Muscle pain
  • General stiffness
  • Stress and tension
  • Tennis or golfers elbow
  • Strained muscles
  • Low back pain
  • Sciatic pain and piriformis syndrome
  • Pins and needles or numbness
  • Pregnancy discomfort
  • Fluid retention
  • Injury rehabilitation and management
  • Chronic Pain

Dry needling is a specific technique used for the treatment of muscular pain, myofascial dysfunction and joint immobility. It is also used for releasing trigger points within the muscle.

Unlike acupuncture, dry needling does not follow meridian systems, instead it is applied directly to locations in the body including myofascial trigger points within muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joint capsules. It involves the insertion of a sterilized acupuncture needle into the skin. Often we will apply it in conjunction with massage and/or myofascial cupping depending on the clients needs.

The benefits of dry needling therapy include

  • Trigger point release
  • Stimulation of hormone release to encourage healing
  • Increased circulation
  • Increased mobility
  • Decreased swelling

Myofascial cupping is a unique technique in that it uses negative pressure to lift and separate soft tissue. This increases nutrient-rich blood supply to the tissue, while giving a gentle passive stretch to the underlying soft issue.

Myofascial cupping can assist with

  • Improving and maintaining range of motion within the body

  • Eliminating myofascial trigger points

  • Reducing restrictive and sometimes painful fascial adhesions

  • Encouraging optimal hydration levels of soft tissue

  • Reduce the incidence of injury

  • Maintain functional soft tissue

  • Lymphatic drainage

  • Swelling reduction

Unlike traditional cupping, marking the skin is not the desired effect of myofascial cupping.
