Soft Tissue Therapy is the management and rehabilitation of soft tissues in the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage therapy also has a strong impact on our nervous, immune, lymphatic and fascial systems.
Soft Tissue Therapy is for everyone and is tailored to the individual. Our lifestyles put increased pressure on our bodies, physically, mentally and emotionally. As a professional therapist I have many techniques to help you achieve your treatment goals including effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, vibration, compression, and friction.
When do I need Soft Tissue Therapy.
Ideally regular treatments help to cope with the significant impact that our bodies go through in its day to day performance. It helps to manage our aches and pains, stresses and injuries we sustain. It also helps to adjust any imbalances, to help prevent injuries and to rehabilitate after an operation, including reduce scar tissue formation.
It is support for our body and mind to achieve maximum performance even when those stressful times come around.
How often should you have Soft Tissue Therapy
This is your choice and should be based on professional recommendations. Such recommendations should be based on assessment, your reaction to treatment and your treatment goals. Frequency of treatments should be discussed & reviewed to ensure its right for you.
