Massage is relaxing and helps release tension, stress and relieves sore aching muscles.
Your therapist treats most soft tissues of the body including the tendons, ligaments, connective tissue and of course the muscles. Massage stretches muscles, inhibits muscle spasm and increases flexibility. Having a massage feels great! There’s nothing like the healing touch of a trained Massage Therapist. A remedial massage can be as strong or gentle as you like and can include your full body or you may decide to focus on a particular area of your body, such as your lower back, which may be causing you pain or discomfort. As a highly trained Musculoskeletal Remedial therapist, Pip can not only help to relieve your pain and stiffness but she can also help identify the underlying drivers behind your pain and help to correct these too.
Some people may know it as Myotherapy, is technically defined as the evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions. What does that mean? It means that your therapist is highly trained to apply the latest in scientific research to thoroughly assess your condition, give you accurate information about what’s going on, treat your condition from a holistic perspective and, where necessary, rehabilitate, based on your individual circumstances.
Musculoskeletal therapy is a branch of functional medicine, so your therapist is trained to look beyond just the symptoms, to uncover the reason the symptoms became problematic. A detailed history and thorough initial assessment means your therapist gains an in depth understanding about the factors that may be impacting on your body, causing your pain and/or dysfunction. The aim of treatment is always to reduce or eliminate pain and improve functional movement and wellbeing.
