Advanced massage techniques are effective for a wide range of ailments, including chronic back pain, trapped nerves, arthritis and migraine.
Advanced remedial massage
Advanced remedial massage relieves acute or chronic pain and helps injuries heal faster, using deep tissue massage and other techniques. It is effective for muscular pain and spasms, as well as improving posture and increasing mobility.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique focusing on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. Long slow strokes are used on the affected area, either following or going across the muscle fibres, tendons and fascia.
This gentle but highly effective body of techniques works on the connective tissue that surrounds the muscle – the myofascia. Releasing tension in the fascia gives it back elasticity, allowing much greater muscle flexibility, blood supply and healing potential.
Trigger point therapy
A technique that involves applying pressure on tiny knots sometimes found in muscle tissue. These are painful themselves and can cause pain in another part of the body.
Scar massage and tissue release
Anything from a childhood fall to major surgery can have a lifelong effect on the body. Scar massage releases and re-aligns the body’s connective tissue.
