Back/Neck Pain

Back Pain comes in many forms and varieties. Regular massage and an exercise routine can help reduce the severity of back pain. It can also help improve posture.
Massage can be performed to help improve all areas of the back. Deep soft tissue massage is performed to affect the deep muscle which can often be the cause of pain. 

 

Stress Headaches and Migraines

Loosening neck, shoulder and scalp muscles and their attachments, relieves stress headaches.
By reducing muscle tension, especially in the neck and reducing the tension associated with musculoskeletal disorders, massage can decrease the recurrence of migraines.

Pregnancy Massage

Massage during pregnancy can help reduce peripheral swelling, help to prevent insomnia, reduce muscle cramps and back pain, and soothe the nervous system.
Massage can be performed on the side lying, face up with support, and even lying on the stomach with specially designed pregnancy pillows

Sports Injuries

Injuries that can be treated by massage include strain, sprains and tears by helping to breaking down scar tissue in the muscle. Treating overuse injuries - cramp, muscular fatigue and tightness, helps restore the muscle to it normal length and remove the trigger points and tight areas.
Maintenance massage is also important in sporting settings as it can help reduce injury and allow you to get optimal performance out of your muscles
Massage creates a localised increase in pressure, which helps with the removal of muscle waste like lactic acid.
Lactic acid builds up in muscles during and immediately after strenuous exercise - limiting the recovery of muscles and their effectiveness.
Additionally, massage stretches other tissues that cannot be reached by alternative methods. A regular massage is insurance against injury.

Tendinopathies 

 

Through cross fibre friction techniques we can help in decreasing the healing time from tendon inflammation injuries such as Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis), Golfers Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis), Achilles Tendinopathy.

 

Diabetes

Diabetes can cause a lack of circulation and neuropathy in the limbs. This in turn leads to muscle atrophy and nerve insensitivity. Although it has to be approached with caution, massage will return some of the function and feel or at least slow the deterioration.
A maintenance program will benefit the sufferer significantly in many cases, with improved mobility, circulation and feel.
