Chris Allen Therapies For Wellbeing
Servicing areaServicing all of Adelaide
A treatment modality that manipulates the soft tissues of the body including movement for a specific therapeutic effect, rather than a general therapeutic effect. It uses relevant techniques, lubricants and movements according to the client's needs and response. It can be combined with a relaxing massage, but is more focused on the relief of specific discomforts, problem areas or pain. Commonly used for the upper back area and the legs.
This deep massage technique aims to create the conditions for the body’s return to normal health after injury or with muscular-skeletal disorders. It is used to treat chronic muscular-skeletal imbalances, strains, sprains, broken bones, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact, all while removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury. Overall, it speeds up recovery and encourages more complete healing.
Some common conditions that can be successfully treated by remedial massage include:
- Achilles tendon
- Shin splints
- Groin strain
- Cartilage damage
- Tennis elbow
- Frozen shoulder
- Hamstring injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Scar tissue
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Repetitive strain injury
- and more
Remedial massage is also used for conditions created by lifestyle such as repetitive strain injury and back pain. It is designed to increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas.
RECOGNISED BY HEALTH FUNDS
Remedial Massage is a therapeutic clinical treatment designed to treat clients in a clinical setting and is recognised by health funds within Australia as a clinical massage and rehabilitation treatment.
Therapists often work alongside medical health professionals as an allied health professional, providing massage as part of a treatment plan.
While remedial massage can relieve pain, treat muscle soreness, increase range of motion and provide soft tissue release, but it is not a relaxation treatment or a luxury spa treatment. Rather, it is a therapeutic clinical treatment designed to help individuals achieve specific results.
