Remedial Massage Therapist

Whether you're tired and sore from everyday life, have injured yourself training or just need to relax and unwind, then let me help you.

​Having suffered a back injury 10 years ago, I experienced first hand the debilitation and restriction caused by muscle pain, and how it can affect people on a daily basis. During my rehabilitation I was fortunate to receive excellent care from a variety of skilled individuals, and was particularly impressed with the results from a talented massage therapist, which sparked my interest in remedial massage. The experience also helped me understand the benefits of working holistically with other allied health professionals to aid recovery or successfully manage symptoms.

​With a keen interest in getting to the root of the issue, through a combination of postural analysis and reviewing the issue with you, I aim to get the best result for you that I can.



Treatments


During your remedial treatment there are a number of techniques that will be employed in order to get the best result possible on the day, these include:


  • Soft tissue manipulation

  • Stretching

  • Triggerpoint therapy

  • Myofascial release

  • Postural analysis


Myofascial Cupping

​What is the Myofascial Cupping Technique™?

​The Myofascial Cupping Technique™ was developed by David Sheehan in 2002. It involves the gliding of negatively pressurised cups over the body with the assistance of massage cream and can be accompanied by joint mobilisation. It is a very different technique to traditional cupping and importantly, marking the skin is NOT part of the desired treatment outcome. It also should be performed at a pressure level that is almost painless to the client.

​How is it different to other massage techniques?

​Unlike all other massage techniques that use compression, the Myofascial Cupping Technique™ is unique in that it ‘lifts and separates’ soft tissue, known as negative or tensional pressure. This in turn can increase nutrient-rich blood supply to the tissue, while giving a gentle passive stretch to the underlying soft tissue.

​Benefits from the Myofascial Cupping Technique™

​The Myofascial Cupping Technique™ can provide profound benefits, particularly with assisting the body in maintaining Range Of Motion, eliminating Myofascial Trigger Points and reducing restrictive and sometimes painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement originating from sports and the workplace. By reducing fascial adhesions, while encouraging optimal hydration levels of soft tissue, the Myofascial Cupping Technique™ can assist in reducing the incidence of injury and maintaining functional soft tissue.
