Remedial massage at Malvern Natural Health Care is tailored to your individual needs.
After a physical assessment your therapist will use the combination of techniques that best suit you.
These may include: trigger points, myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, stretching, deeep tissue massage and even more relaxing styles such as cranio-sacral release, Reiki or energetic healing to release tension and treat pain and stress.
Your massage therapist will assess your problem areas and explain the treatment strategy. Your treatment will addresses any pain, stiffness or stress, mobolising muscles and joints so that healing can take place.
Regardless of your pain, injury or tense areas your therapist understands that your body functions as a whole unit and so you can expect a more complete approach. In many cases pain is “referred”, which means the pain is coming from somewhere else. Remedial massage can include as much relaxation massage as required to help you get the most from your treatment.
The techniques may be gentle or firm, deep or shallow, depending on your preference and what the issue requires.
Remedial massage stimulates blood supply to your muscles and joints, which helps remove toxins that build up with pain or overuse. Your massage can be taylored to your needs so it can also be very relaxing and helpful to relieve stress.
Massage has been shown to improve immunity and is excellent for the nervous system.
Bowen therapy is a holistic and multidimensional approach to pain relief and healing. Bowen Therapy believes that the underlying source of many musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular and other health problems can be found in the soft tissue, or fascia. Fascia embraces all nerves, bones, arteries, veins and muscles. Fascial dysfunction can affect every structure, muscle, never and organ in the body with nerve compression, muscle shortening, skeletal and organ displacement as typical examples.
Bowen is safe to use on anyone from the elderly to newborn babies and on any condition from sports injuries to chronic complaints. A treatment consists of small gentle moves each at a specific site on the body. There is no forceful manipulation, just light cross-fibre moves over muscle, tendon or ligament.
Benefits can include remission from pain, reduced stress, greater mobility, improved physical and emotional quality and enjoyment of life, increased energy, improved circulation, lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
