REMEDIAL THERAPY

Objective assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the signs, symptoms and causes of biomechanical dysfunction or injury, using specific mobilisation techniques, in order to restore normal health & function

Joint Mobilisations

A manual therapy intervention, a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint. Which describes the range of motion of the target joint. Passive movement technique for musculoskeletal conditions.  Mobilization  is in cases when range of motion is lacking. Joints are  points in the body where two bones meet. They are surrounded by soft tissue, which is susceptible to  injury or disease.  Joint mobilization is a physical therapy technique designed to relieve pain and muscle spasms, release tension and improve flexibility in a joint.

Neuromuscular Technique

Treat individuals with neuromuscular diseases, injuries in order to reduce symptoms such as pain, muscle spasms or contractions, Massage therapists will work to restore fitness and health high possible degree, finding and eliminating trigger points causing pain, helping to restore postural alignment and flexibility.  Treatment goal is to rebuild the strength of tissue injured to restore physical functioning, also to improve the flow of blood and lymph in the body. Patients who require neuromuscular physical therapy such as fibromyalgia, scoliosis, low back pain, arthritis, sciatica

Trigger point therapy

 

Spots of Hyperirritable in the skeletal muscle. They are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers, myofascial knot as an identifiable source of pain.

Seated Chair massage

 

Chair massage focuses on the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands. Massage therapists are able to offer on-site massage to many environments because of the portability of the massage chair, and clients do not need to disrobe to receive a chair massage. Due to these two factors, chair massage is often performed in settings such as business offices, employee appreciation events, trade shows, conferences, and other corporate settings.

Head massage

 

The massage increases nourishment and oxygen to the scalp and hair follicle which in turns stimulates hair growth. It's a one way ticket to long, luscious locks! Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck thus helping to remove waste products from the body.

Exercise Rehabilitation

 

Aims to bring back full function following injury through restoring muscle strength, endurance, power, and improving flexibility. Therapists achieve these results by carefully selecting and planning various exercises and drills for each client.

Pregnancy massage

 

Pregnancy or prenatal massage is used to reduce  stress,   reduce swelling in the arms and legs and relieve muscle and joint pain in pregnant women. Massage in pregnancy can involve many different massage techniques. It is usually a gentle massage.

Benefits of Pregnancy massage

 

- Improved circulation.

- Reduced back pain.

- Reduced stress and anxiety.

- Reduced joint pain.

- Reduced muscle tension and headaches.

Myofascial Release

 

Safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

​Deep Tissue Massage

 

Mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

Muscle Energy Technique

Manual therapy techniques directed at improving musculoskeletal function or joint function, and improving pain. Injury can occur as a result of trauma, accidents, overuse, strain/sprain, Muscle Energy is a direct  and  active technique,  meaning  it engages a restrictive barrier and  requires the  patient's   participation  for maximal effect. Muscle energy techniques can be employed to reposition dysfunctional  joint and treat the affected musculature. Indications include, but are not limited to: muscular shortening, low back pain, pelvic imbalance, limited range of motion, somatic dysfunction, respiratory dysfunction headaches & many other's

Stretching, Range of motion Exercises: 

 

Limited range of motion refers to a joint that has a reduction in its ability to move. The reduced motion may be a mechanical problem with the specific joint or it may be caused by injury or diseases.  Physical  and occupational therapy can help to improve joint function by focusing on range of motion exercises & sometimes include Thai massage stretch. The goal of these exercises is to gently increase range of motion while decreasing pain, swelling, and stiffness.

Benefits of stretching:

- Reduced muscle tension.

- Increased range of movement in the joints.

- Enhanced muscular coordination.

- Increased circulation of the blood 

- Increased energy levels

Sport massage

 

The type of technique or treatment applied is dependent on the nature of the stage of training or competition, sports injury or condition and the assessment of the remedial massage therapist. Sport massage is a blend of techniques that aim to enhance performance and help overworked muscles to recover quickly.

Benefit of Sport Massage

- improved relaxation

- minimal muscle tension

- higher range of movement

- scar tissues improvement

- better blood circulation 

Myofascial Cupping

 
Cups are normally used only on softer tissue that can form a good seal with the edge of the cup. They may be used singly or with many to cover a larger area. Skin may be lubricated, allowing the cup to move across the skin slowly. Skin markings are common after the cups are removed, varying from simple red rings that disappear relatively quickly, to discoloration from bruising, especially if the cups are dragged while suctioned from one place to another, ostensibly to break down muscle fibre. Usually, treatments are not painful.

Aromatherapy

 

Essential oils made from selected flowers and plants are added to the massage oil for their particular therapeutic properties. For example, the scent of sandalwood is thought to reduce nervous tension.

Kinesiology Taping

 

kinesiology tape speeds healing by slightly lifting skin away from sore or injured tissues, improving blood flow and lymphatic drainage, and that it supports injured joints and muscles without impeding their range of motion.

Swedish Relaxation Massage

 

The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief. Swedish massage may loosen up tight muscles caused by daily activities such as sitting at the computer or exercising. It can be very helpful for people who hold a lot of tension in their lower back, shoulders, or neck.
