remedial massage

A tailored treatment for specific physical issues as identified through a thorough assessment.  Useful for the treatment of repetitive strain injuries (RSI’s) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, back pain, frozen shoulder and many more.  Treatment can include Swedish massage followed by deeper massage techniques, stretching and specific movements of joints.

 

detect the problem

This is where I become more of a detective and the focus of the treatment becomes more specific. Using a set testing protocol I can identify specific conditions and problems, e.g. frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow.

EXTRA techniques

In addition to Swedish Massage strokes, extra techniques may be used to ensure the most beneficial outcome, e.g. stretching, trigger point work and active, passive and resisted movements. Treatment duration is approximately one hour including initial assessment.  The initial assessment includes a postural assessment and some specific tests around the problem area.
