Modalities

Remedial Massage

The aim of remedial massage is to help the body heal, relieve pain and return muscles and other soft tissues to their natural state. A variety of techniques is used, carefully selected for each patient and session.

Remedial massage can be especially beneficial in these scenarios:

  • Chronic/recurring pain, e.g. lower or upper back
  • Chronic conditions, e.g. biceps tendinopathy, frozen shoulder, arthritis
  • Postural imbalances, e.g. due to desk work or scoliosis
  • Sub-acute injuries, e.g ankle sprain or muscle strain
  • Rehabilitation, e.g. after knee or hip replacement
Remedial massage

Deep Tissue Massage

Performed with more pressure to reach through all tissue layers, deep tissue massage gets down to the nitty-gritty of it all, stripping muscles to reduce tension and knots.

Dry needling

Dry Needling

With the help of sterile, single-use acupuncture needles, dry needling works on myofascial trigger points of muscles to remove tension and knots. It is very effective and long-lasting, therefore ideally suited to break up knots and tension that has been there for a while.

Sports massage

Sports Massage

This type of remedial massage helps the athlete’s body to reach optimum performance when it is needed most, e.g. removing fatigue before a competition or addressing underlying issues in the off-season.

IASTM (Cupping & Scraping)

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation works primarily on fascia, skin and other connective tissue to increase flexibility, pliability and promote movement between soft tissue layers. It removes stiffness, increases range of motion and kinetic efficiency.

Myofascial Release

Myofascia is the connective tissue that envelops and runs through muscle. When the muscle gets tight, so does the myofascia. This technique helps to release the tension in the connective tissue, which is equally important to an overall relaxed state.
