Whether you’re after a remedial massage, sports massage or a relaxing massage, Optimise You can tailor a treatment perfectly suited to you.
Remedial massage combines the assessment and the manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues of the body, with the primary aim of re-establishing and maintaining good physical condition. Regular remedial treatment assists in the maintenance of optimal physical condition and reduces the likelihood of injury during the performance of everyday activities or testing physical exercise.
Relaxation massage is a gentle, smooth, flowing style of massage that promotes overall relaxation and relieves muscular tension whilst improving circulation. Perfect if you are feeling stressed, under pressure or simply wishing to pamper yourself with some relaxation.
Sports massage is the science and the art of applying therapeutic massage and related techniques to ensure the wellbeing and health of a sporting athlete. Sporting activities can be enhanced with pre and post event massage as well as rehabilitation therapy and maintenance massage.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point can be a dull or sharp muscular pain that can refer or radiate in a pattern to other locations in the body. This treatment approach is effective for the relief and control of specific myofascial dysfunction and pain. The goal of this treatment is to ‘turn off’ a trigger point utilising digital compression. This technique is able to remove a large majority of the experienced pain and return the affected muscles to normal flexibility and motor function.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on the layers of muscle that exist in the body to lengthen, relax and release holding patterns in the most effective way possible. It can help in reducing chronic muscular pain, along with helping injury rehabilitation. Deep tissue massage can reduce inflammation that is connected to pain causes by tendinitis and arthritis.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a type of massage, mimicking the action of the lymphatic system, to help remove stagnation and congestion (oedema) out of the body tissues, and stimulate the body’s immune system. MLD has a very precise rhythm, speed and pressure.
