Soft Tissue Therapy is a gentle way of treating soft tissues (muscles/tendons/ligaments/fascia) using the many techniques of sports massage.
The term is increasingly used instead of ‘Sports Massage’ to indicate that just about anyone can benefit, not just sports people!
Sports science and the latest research into professional sports recovery help to influence techniques.
A thorough health and injury assessment is taken followed by a posture/stance analysis. Then the affected soft tissues are massaged, trigger-pointed, stretched and rehabilitated for pain relief and increased range of movement.
Soft Tissue Therapy can treat a wide variety of problems including;
- Frozen shoulder and shoulder pain
- Whiplash/neck pain
- Back pain
- Sacro-iliac pain and ‘sciatica’
- Strained/pulled muscles
- Post surgery muscular recover
- Restricted range of movement in any joint
- Ligament sprain
- Headaches and vertigo
