Sports and Remedial Massage can help treat many different musculoskeletal problems, pains, aches, and conditions – from foot problems such as Plantar Fasciitis (inflammation of the fascia under the foot) or Achilles Tendonitis ( inflammation of the tendon connecting calf muscle to the heel of the foot) to helping people get back on track after knee reconstruction (when ACL ligament is created from part of the hamstring muscle) to pulled hammie (so often seen in footy players and track and field athletes), then we also treat tight hip flexors ( those nasty Iliopsoas muscles) as they cause back pain relief as well as better leg mobility and Sciatica ( where Sciatic nerve gets compressed -sending pain to buttock and down the back of the leg). Moving up the body we can help you if you have Frozen Shoulder, Golfer’s Elbow, Tennis Elbow (both are inflammation of the muscles attached above the elbow) and finally we look after people’s necks – wry necks, whiplashes, tight necks from desk work, sore neck from MMA, jiu-jitsu, weightlifting, working…
Depending on the complaint, area, function and many other factors we might use Deep Tissue Massage Techniques to get into deeper layers of the muscles, or we might do Myofascial Releases to help align the fascia that surrounds the muscles and other tissues, we can also Trigger Point the knots and deactivate them – causing immediate release of those points, and if they are deep or you prefer us to we are also experienced in Dry Needling Treatments (where by using acupuncture needles we deactivate hypersensitive areas).
Apart from strictly Remedial / Therapeutic Massages we also offer Pregnancy Massage – which is still Remedial, however modified for the needs of mums-to- be. And finally we do offer Hot Stone Therapy. Perfected by Kasia – Hot Stone Massage with the use of Aromatherapy Oils is a great experience – it could be done in a heavier manner more towards remedial or in a purely gentle way as a pampering gift to a loved one or yourself.
So there is here something for everyone and if you didn’t find information you were looking for simply give us a call, a text or email and we will be happy to discuss your needs.
