Massage is an established and effective therapy used for the relief of pain, swelling, muscle spasm and restricted movement. It is the manual manipulation of soft tissue structures like muscles, tendons and ligaments, to help stimulate normal movement and function. There are also great health benefits by improving relaxation and reducing stress.


Sports massage helps aid recovery from training and also helps in sport preparation by removing unwanted toxins and stiffness, which accelerates damaged tissue repair as well as improves soft tissue elasticity. Massage is also used when inflammation fails to resolve or healing is delayed. It can also affect the somatic and autonomic nervous systems which facilitate the reduction of pain and relaxation.


We also use Myofascial Release techniques which is a specialised manual therapy used for the effective treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue and fascial restrictions. Fascia surrounds, infuses and protects every other tissue, tendon, muscle, bone, ligament and organ of the body. Following physical trauma fascia scars creating tension on pain-sensitive structures along the fascial pull. Myofascial release therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back or joint pain.


Massage and myofascial release combines well with physiotherapy in the recovery from injury and disabilities. The physical contact that massage requires between you and therapist facilitates accurate assessment of dysfunction. This is responsible, in part, for the therapeutic success of these techniques.
