Therapy Room Treatments

Swedish Massage is gentler than a sports massage, our therapist uses techniques aimed to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension . The techniques used are all designed to help relax you, increase blood flow to the muscles being treated, help lymph drainage and stimulate nerve endings.

Hot Stones Massage involves the therapist placing heated stones upon specific parts of your body. The heat from the stones, and weight of the stones, help relax the muscles. This allows the therapist to work deeper in the muscle whilst applying lighter pressure.

Sports Massage, also known as deep tissue massage. Although most people think this type of massage is for sports people, it is very beneficial to all of us due to the stresses placed upon the body in daily living. Sports massage uses different techniques to relax the muscle, then applying pressure to mobilise fluids, stretch muscle fibres and aid relaxation. Different Sports Massage techniques can aid benefits prior to sporting events, post sporting events and even during some sporting events.

Osteopathy  provides treatment for most muscle and joint problems throughout the body – not just backs.  Treatment involves identifying what is causing the problem through a detailed case history and really getting to know the patient and factors that could be contributing to their problem – whether that is in a sporting context, or simply going about day-to-day activities.  Osteopathic treatment is suitable for people from all walks of life.  The treatment tends to involve an assessment and examination of how the patient is moving, some hands on treatment, together with some rehabilitation and movement exercises to help manage pain and get the patient back to full function.

Prior to some of our treatments, sports massage and chiropractic treatments, an initial consultation is required. The consultation is designed to asses the issue you would like resolved. The therapist will carry out an in-depth examination. This examination allows the therapist to put together a treatment plan for you. The therapist will chat with you to come together with an agreed plan of action (treatment and exercises), discuss your aims from treatment and put the plan into action.

 

Depending on the findings in your initial consultation, the therapist will treat you accordingly, depending on the therapist you are seeing. The therapist will check how you are doing and continue with any agreed treatments such as soft tissue techniques, mobilisation, and teach you exercises as required.

The therapist will also recommended any self-management work which may include exercises, adjustments to daily living and stretches.
