Soft Tissue Therapy
Also known as Remedial Massage, this deep soft tissue treatment is used to address specific problems or areas of discomfort and concern. Different hands-on techniques are employed to facilitate a change to the soft tissue layers, from superficial to deep. The primary goals are to reduce pain and improve movement.
This focus is on the layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia to aid in the restoration of functional movement and to facilitate postural change, restoring correct muscle tone, symmetry, and balance.
Massage treatments will differ according to the client's needs and symptoms. All treatments combine ongoing assessment with massage and advanced soft tissue techniques such as:
Muscle Energy Technique
Soft Tissue Release
Fascial Release Technique
Positional Release Technique
Where necessary exercises may be recommended to be continued at home between treatments, and general advice is given regarding posture and lifestyle.
