Our experienced massage therapists can relax muscles, improve circulation, decrease stress, relieve cramps or spasms, alleviate pain, improve flexibility and enhance general well-being.
Involves the insertion of a solid, filament needle, as is used in acupuncture, usually inserted into a specific area of tension known as a myofascial trigger point. These trigger points can refer pain and upset the equilibrium of muscle tissue. Dry needling these sites helps to deactivate and resolve these trigger points, which in turn results in a reduction in pain.
Relaxation massage is a soft and gentle type massage designed to calm the nervous system which alleviates stress, muscular pains and discomfort, improve circulation and enhance general overall health. So if you are holding some tension or simply haven’t pampered yourself in a while, then book yourself in for a refreshing relaxation massage today..
Myofascial Release (MFR)
The body is made of different types of tissues which group and correspond with each other. These are called ‘Fascial Lines’. MFR focuses on using a dry massage type approach to release tension in muscles, improve circulation and stretching muscles and overlying fascia (connective tissue). Foam rollers, stretches and acupressure balls may be used for MFR.
The skin and soft tissues are drawn into suction cups under negative pressure to provide blood flow to the area which promotes healing. Different techniques, such as dragging the cups, are used to breakdown scar tissue formed on muscle fibers. Cupping may cause some surface bruising, as toxins are released from the inside out - handy tip: The more hydrated you are, the less you will bruise.
Passive movement of a skeletal joint which stretches and promotes a lubricating fluid through the joint to increase its range of motion. Joint mobilisations are classified in grades I-IV, each of which refers to the range of motion of a joint during the treatment. (Please note that manipulation of a joint is classified as “Grade V” and Sports Therapists are unable to perform this. Please notify your therapist if this is the treatment you are after).
