Massage Therapy can assist in the relief of pain in the neck, back and especially headaches.
Specific techniques are utilised to isolate the areas causing pain and through the use of a combination of different modalities, the problem areas are treated, resulting in a reduction of pain.
Massage can relieve your sore and tired muscles, reduce your chronic stress and work tension, improve concentration and work performance. It will leave you feeling relaxed and energised.
Massage increases local blood flow without putting additional strain on the heart and decreases the heart and respiration rate. It may also increase lung capacity and pulmonary function where they have been compromised by tight primary and secondary muscles of respiration.
Massage helps to maintain your muscles in the best possible state of nutrition, flexibility and vitality, speeding up muscle recovery after activity or injury. Deep massage can separate fascial fibres, and prevent the formation of adhesions.
It also helps in the reduction of inflammation and oedema in joints and soft tissue following injury.
