Therapy Central provides professional massage therapy. We are dedicated to relieving your muscular aches and pains and will work with you in order to treat and prevent injuries. Other added benefits include relaxation after those long and stressful days. Our sessions are individually tailored to meet each client's needs. We use various massage techniques in order to address your specific needs. Throughout the sessions we will also provide stretches and offer suggestions on changes that can be made in order to improve the areas that are impacting your body, for example posture. The massage is applied by using hands, forearms and elbows to knead, rub, squeeze and touch the soft tissues of the body including the skin, fascia, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
This treatment style is what most techniques are based on and is very relaxing. It involves long, smooth strokes that flow rhythmically. The pressure is firm, yet gentle and deeply relaxing as it is designed to soothe, promote relaxation, improve circulation and ease muscle tension.
This treatment involves a technique that applies deep pressure on areas of muscle tension which is administered to muscles, tendons and fascia. The aim is to release the tension thus freeing the muscles, which increases the length and thus the range of motion. It assists with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation, and reduces inflammation-related pain. This technique is generally integrated with other massage techniques.
This treatment is a targeted style that incorporates a range of techniques in order to alleviate specific areas of injury, muscle tightness and fatigue. It typically involves an assessment of the issue and is used to treat a whole range of conditions from neck pain through to sprained ankles. It is also effective in promoting muscle recovery. Remedial massage uses a combination of the following techniques:
This style of massage is beneficial for anyone who is actively participating in sport or training for an event. It is also beneficial if you are re-commencing training post injury. Sports massage may include used to address specific problems such as muscle cramp, excessively tight muscles, joint stiffness or excessive scar tissue. This treatment involves different applications for both pre- and post-sports. Prior to the event, the massage is used to warm up the muscles and use joint articulation to prepare the muscles for the motions that they will be undertaking. The treatment is tailored to focusing on the stresses placed upon the body by the demands of the sport, therefore these techniques also assist with injury prevention. The pressure is not as deep and it is faster in style. Post-sport massage is not too deep and used to promote a faster recovery after exertion and reduction in pain.
At Therapy Central we specialise in remedial and sports massage. As sports enthusiasts ourselves, we have personally witnessed the benefits of injury treatment and prevention, along with the improved performance and recovery time. We also have a passion for working with chronic illnesses and work holistically with our clients to address the whole issue and not just parts of it.
