Massage

Improve Movement

When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. The purpose of the massage is to “un-stick” the fibres; it aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either going with or across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia. A Deep Tissue Massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. Massage Therapy can improve stiffness and physical function.

What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage is a treatment for specific injuries or muscular dysfunction. The massage is tailored to address the specific needs of the individual, in order to improve or ultimately resolve the underlying problem.

Remedial Massage may consist of a combination of Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy and stretching techniques, and is great for that nagging pain that just won’t go away.

Skillfully used, Remedial Massage therapy can assist the body in its own healing processes, where disease or injury has occurred in muscles, connective tissues, bones, joints and internal organs. Massage can also assist healing through its effect on the psychological condition of the patient, increasing a sense of confidence, well-being and relaxation. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has specific clinical advantages to assist in medical, rehabilitation therapeutic program.

One of the immediate benefits of Remedial Massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because the massage prompts the release of Endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones – such as Adrenalin, Cortisol and Norepinephrine – are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.

Remedial Massage is greatly beneficial and can reduce symptoms by relaxing the tension in the muscles, stimulating the flow of blood through the muscles, breaking down and eliminating toxins, enhancing oxygenation of the brain and relaxing the nervous system and mind.

Remedial massage can holistically address the whole body to ease out tension, and repair damage to muscles, joints, tendons and soft tissue.

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. For those who like firm pressure it feels good and it is beneficial to your health.

When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. The purpose of the massage is to “un-stick” the fibres; it aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either going with or across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia. A Deep Tissue Massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly.

Deep Tissue Massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. That said, you should feel better than ever within a day or two. It is important to drink plenty of water, do some light exercise or have an Epson salt bath afterwards to help eliminate the toxins from the body.

What is Trigger Point therapy?

Trigger Points are areas of tenderness in a muscle. These can sometimes be felt as a lump when the muscle is massaged. On a microscopic level, Trigger Points are made up of segments of muscle fibres which remain in their contracted or shortened state. These develop due to sustained use of the particular muscle in various postures or with various sporting activities. Trigger Points are so named as they can trigger an area of referred pain when they are compressed. These areas of pain do not correlate with the nerve supply to the overlying skin.

Trigger Point Therapy involves applying pressure (within the Client’s comfort zone) to these Trigger Points, in order that the whole muscle can then relax and return to its resting length. As a result of this release, any metabolites and waste products that have accumulated in these muscle knots are then moved into the circulation. It is important that after a massage, adequate water is consumed to flush out the circulatory system, otherwise one can experience headaches, dizziness, tiredness or muscle tightness. Trigger Points can also be treated by regular stretching.

What is Pregnancy Massage?

There are many benefits to having regular massage during the baby making years, conception, postnatal and postpartum. Regular massage can help the woman to prepare for the changes that are coming into her life, both physically and emotionally.

Benefits include:

  • Massage increases circulation – bringing more oxygen and nutrients to cells, both in the mother and the developing baby. By increasing circulation, blood pressure may also be kept in check.
  • The pregnant woman can suffer from anxiety and depression during this period of her life that is so ‘life changing’. Massage can soothe and ease the woman’s fears, preparing her physically and mentally for upcoming labour.
  • Massage can assist with stabilising hormone secretions, especially during the 1st trimester.
  • Being stressed and anxious can affect the baby – relax Mum and the baby will settle.
  • The normal discomforts of pregnancy such as: backache, headaches, leg cramps, carpal tunnel type symptoms, and swelling of hands and feet can all be addressed by massage.
  • Many women are reluctant to take pain medication throughout the pregnancy. Massage can help with the pain normally associated with pregnancy, thereby reducing the need for medication use.
  • The lymphatic system is often overloaded during pregnancy. Massage can assist to move the lymph safely through the body.
  • As the pregnancy develops, it is quite common to feel varying degrees of discomfort. This can be managed by relaxing tight muscles, toning loose muscles and applying other specialised pregnancy massage techniques.
  • Not all pregnancies go according to plan. We will work with your other health care professionals to help make the journey as smooth as possible.

All of our Therapists are trained and qualified to perform Pregnancy Massage.

What is Lymphatic Drainage?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle form of massage used in aiding the immune system. Lymph begins as the fluid surrounding the cells in our bodies which contains waste products, toxins, enzymes, hormones, white blood cells, proteins and plasma. It may contain bacteria and viruses. This fluid is channelled via the lymphatic system consisting of lymphatic channels and ducts and lymph nodes back into the blood.

Lymphatic Drainage is helpful in detoxifying our bodies as well as stimulating our immune system. It can also help with reducing swelling or fluid retention. Lymphatic

What is Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone massage is an ancient therapeutic form of massage which utilises both hot and cold stones and massage techniques. Using the earth’s materials and the natural healing powers of temperature makes Hot Stones a calming and deeply relaxing experience. The stones are varied in size and temperature and are used as an extension of the therapist’s hands, the combination of massage, hot stones and warm oil allows for deep relaxation of muscle.

Benefits of Hot Stone:
The therapeutic use of heat is beneficial in:

-Improving circulation and lymphatic flow in the body effectively reducing fluid build-up, toxins and waste stored in the body
– Rehabilitation of injuries in the post-acute stage of healing as the increased blow flow effectively brings oxygen, nutrients and proteins that are essential for healing.
– Reducing blood pressure
– Decreasing stress and encouraging release of endorphins
– Decreasing joint stiffness,
-Reducing pain and relieving muscle spasms,
– Increasing extensibility of collagen tissues
– Oedema

What is Reflexology?

Reflexologists believe that the foot is a map of the body. The application of various techniques of pressure to the foot, on zonal pathways of the map, will reflect in the body by not only relieving pain but, in the majority of cases, assisting in relief to the underlying cause. Working on the feet can improve nerve, lymph and blood supply, detoxing congested areas and reducing pain.

Where there is a problem within the body, the corresponding reflexes can reveal sensitivity when pressure is applied. Working with these reflexes will bring about changes in the body, a reduction of symptoms, as well as a reduction in the sensitivity of the reflexes.

What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and pain thus affecting movement and mobility.

Myotherapists utilise a range of treatment techniques to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).

Myotherapists employ various soft tissue manipulation techniques, together with other modalities such as: trigger point therapy, dry needling, deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapies, passive/active muscle stretching, electro-mechanical stimulation (TENS) and corrective or rehabilitative exercises.

What does a Myotherapist do?

A Myotherapy consultation will typically commence with thorough history taking followed by various muscle, joint and neurological testing.  Combined with manual palpation of muscles and joints, a Myotherapist aims to identify the cause of one’s pain to ensure quick, effective and long lasting results.

 What does this mean for you?

This means that as a Myotherapist can help to identify the cause of your complaint more effectively and have more tools and skills to help treat your presenting condition. They will  use manual therapy (massage) as the base of the treatments, but by adding exercise prescription (not fitness related) your results could last longer, your pain could ease and you could be on your way to a more pain free future.
