Myotherapy or myofascial therapy is a powerful form of bodywork involving the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue using a combination of massage techniques including deep tissue massage, acupressure, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. Addressing pain at a deep, structural level, myotherapy encourages your body to return to its natural, self-healing & pain-free state.
Myotherapy offers a truly holistic approach to pain management. I also comment on dietary and exercise requirements that may be used in conjunction with the massage treatment to help speed up your recovery time. Each individual requires a unique treatment plan, after a comprehensive consultation, a treatment plan is designed to target your specific health needs.
Deep Tissue Massage
Whether you are experiencing chronic muscle tension or more generalized aches and pains deep tissue massage can help you.
Deep Tissue Massage is based on slow, deep strokes and applied pressure – much deeper than experienced during a relaxation massage. During deep tissue massage tissue is stretched and lengthened to correct the posture.
Remedial Massage Therapy
Remedial massage is a form of deep tissue massage therapy that incorporates massage, soft tissue manipulation and exercise advice to reduce a variety of physical symptoms. Techniques are used to break down fibrous areas formed in muscles, increase blood supply and promote healthy circulation. Muscles, ligaments and tendons are manipulated in order to speed up recovery from injury and promote the body’s ability to heal itself.
This therapeutic approach to healing offers a holistic treatment, identifying the root cause of a problem before providing relief from the symptoms.
Massage for Stress and Tension Reduction
Therapeutic massage is a powerful tool for helping you manage stress & tension. A deeply relaxing massage can give you a welcome break from the strains and stresses of daily life and help you to feel better both physically and mentally.
Taking care of your body now will reward you in the future and the addition of therapeutic massage to your routine will enhance your well-being on many levels.
A relaxation massage gives your body the space it needs to let go of stress and tension. It is designed to give you a full-body relaxation experience.
You experience smooth, flowing strokes and gentle manipulation of the muscles and soft tissues all designed to help you achieve a state of deep relaxation.
Pregnancy is a journey of anticipation and excitement for many women.
As pregnancy progresses, your skeletal structure has to support your increasing weight as well as your body organs being moved around to accommodate your growing baby. Profound emotional and psychological changes caused by fluctuating hormones can often occur. These changes in the woman’s body can bring about stress as well as aches and pains.
Providing you are healthy and you have checked with your doctor, massage during pregnancy is beneficial as it promotes relaxation and a sense of well being whilst also helping to relieve muscle tension. Aching backs and legs, headaches, nausea, insomnia and emotional stress can all be supported with massage.
