What is Massage?
Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. Not only your muscles, but specific techniques can also act on the tendons, ligaments and fascia (a fibrous connective tissue surrounding the muscles).
How does massage therapy help me?
Massage has therapeutic effects that include stimulation of circulation, moving lymph fluid and reducing swelling to injury. They can also involve the lengthening of tight tissues and muscle, normalising them into a resting state. Healing times can be improved by increasing local blood flow, and muscular spasms and discomfort from muscle soreness will be reduced.
How does massage complement my Physiotherapy session?
Massage therapy is an effective complement and works synergistically with your physiotherapy care. When utilized together, physiotherapy and massage facilitate and stimulate the body’s natural healing process by keeping the body in proper alignment, which ensures a free flow of nerve impulses and circulation in the blood and lymphatic systems. Many of the problems that cause pain in the musculo-skeletal system are caused from a combination of stress on muscles, joints and nerves. Therefore, it is important to correct the misalignments through postural changes combined with stretching & strengthening. In addition to relieving the stress on the nervous system, it is important to treat the soft tissues such as the muscles and tendons. By working together, physiotherapy and massage will provide you with a more complete and effective health care system. Make the choice to complement your physiotherapy care with therapeutic massage today!! You will not only reduce the stress from the everyday grind, but you will assist the body in reduction of pain and its ability to heal itself.
What are the outcomes from my massage treatment?
After a thorough assessment & diagnosis of your condition, your treatment will be specific to your pain relief & quick recovery. You will have reduced muscle tension for longer, increased movement in your muscles and joints & a reduction in stiffness & pain. The therapeutic effects of massage are cumulative, so we will recommend a treatment plan to meet your health and wellness goals.
