Soft Tissue Therapy -
Level 5 Sports, Remedial & Therapeutic Massage
Soft Tissue Therapy is the name given to bodywork that uses a number of specialised techniques as well all the classical moves you would expect to find in a high quality body massage.
Soft Tissue Therapy uses neuro-muscular techniques to restore muscles to their optimum resting length, treat musculoskeletal pain, injury and dysfunction caused by any of life’s stresses. Although sport and over-activity can be a common factor with many clients, this is far from being the main problem that Soft Tissue Therapists deal with.
Much of the bodywork I do is around the reduction of stress, tension, pain and dysfunction and that can be due to any number of long or short term causes including lifestyle, stress, occupation, trauma, illness and injury. Many of today's issues are caused by posture, repetitive use and even under use.
The depth of pressure used is completely individual and based on what a client needs that day. Pressure can change from session to session and throughout a session depending on need and sensitivity. The depth of a massage is not necessarily about pressing hard. It's about doing what is needed to restore to health.
As with all treatments here the approach is holistic which means considering the whole person and not just the part. This therapy is designed to treat soft tissue imbalances while identifying the underlying cause. It aims to increase mobility, function and relaxation and offer more long-term improvements in wellbeing, all of which helps with injury prevention.
As well as remedial sessions I also offer sessions purely for relaxation.
