  2. An assessment of how your body moves; standing, seated and laying
  3. Ability to get on and off the table to reassess once or twice in the treatment
  4. Massage, stretches and some active participation
  5. A few suggestions for homework, including stretches

To feel alert, awake and energized after the treatment.

Muscles & Skeletal System

Musculoskeletal therapy

This therapy has been designed to treat the muscles and skeletal system using various soft tissue and mobilisation (not manipulation) techniques. Used in the treatment and rehabilitation of back pain, neck pain, joint pain, muscular dysfunction and/or injuries, musculoskeletal techniques incorporate a varied amount of ‘hands on’ remedial and mobilisation techniques, as well as take-home stretching and strengthening exercises. This assists in maintaining functional alignment of the skeletal system.

What can you expect?

  1. A detailed history of your complaint
  2. A structured assessment of how your body moves; standing, seated and laying
  3. Special orthopaedic tests
  4. Nerve conduction assessments valuable to understanding your weakness
  5. Muscle firing sequencing so we can return them to normal function
  6. Fully clothed treatment (make sure you wear something appropriate)
  7. Strength testing, joint mobilising, muscle energy techniques, myofascial techniques, some massage manoeuvres, stretches, and some deep muscle trigger point work
  8. A simple and structured effective home exercise plan

To reduce pain, improve function and start feeling normal again.

Kid’s massage

A complementary and alternative treatment that uses massage therapy, or ‘the manual manipulation of soft tissue intended to promote health and well-being’ for children and adolescents. We also focus on sports performance with neurolymphatic points and stretching, which are gentler if painful treatment is a deterrent.

What can you expect?

  1. A brief history of your child’s complaint
  2. An assessment of how they move specifically with their sport or activity
  3. A treatment protocol matching any sporting event or fixture
  4. Clothed treatment for personal comfort
  5. Massage, stretches and some active participation
  6. Some specific suggestions for home exercises or stretches to improve movement

To feel stronger, more flexible and energetic after the treatment.

Gentle and effective

Pregnancy massage

The three stages of pregnancy have very specific and unique characteristics which must be dealt with by the therapist in a particular manner. First trimester can bring on extreme hormone fluxes, with nausea as a main side effect. Certain points of the body are avoided throughout the journey to child birth as they may stimulate potential uncomfortable side effects. The therapist should be well versed in each stage of your pregnancy, as well as the clinical picture you present with.

The results from a good treatment include relief from

  1. Altered body alignment
  2. Unstable lower back and hips
  3. Nerve pain and pinching around the sacrum
  4. Sciatica and lower back pain
  5. Pain between the shoulder blades
  6. Spasms and cramping
  7. Sleep issues and headaches

Why should you add massage into your pregnancy?

Your 9-10-month pregnancy is uniquely different from woman to woman. No two sisters have the same biological and hormonal experiences, and the life that grows within imparts its own special gift of biomechanical stressors. The therapist you choose should be someone that you trust, is highly experienced, and wants to share in your journey.
Massage has validity as a way to cope with the aches, pains and tension your body experiences. We can be part of the process and look after your body’s needs.
