As a Sports Massage Therapist with over 10 years experience treating clients I’ve developed a comprehensive toolbox of techniques. Including the following:
*Medical Acupuncture/Dry Needling
*Myofascial Dry Cupping
This technique uses vacuum cupping to lift and stretch the skin vertically, decompressing the area. It works well on tight muscles, scar tissue, adhesions, and joints. It’s relatively painless and highly effective.
A form of massage to help ease tight muscles, breakdown scar tissue, improve blood flow and circulation to damaged tissue and joint. Using firm pressure within your pain scale this gets results. You will feel like you’ve had a workout afterwards!
Or Dry Needling is used to bring blood flow to an area by causing a small micro injury. Neurally it helps to release muscle spasm by interfering with the nerve causing the contraction. It’s a quick therapy and when used with massage can release muscle spasm successfully
Not just for Olympic athletes! Kinesiology taping can help manage pain conditions, improve movement and circulation. Also helpful for postural correction and pre-event taping.
This has a multitude of uses breaking down scar tissue gently, increasing blood flow to damaged tissue, softens tissue. Ultrasound is a non-invasive gentle treatment particular useful in early stages of healing and with older clients.
Applying a small electrical current across inserted needles! Stimulating muscles to contract that are atrophied (weak) I’ve used this to help a post-op spinal surgery client to start walking again. It can loosening tight muscles and reduce muscle spasm.
