"Hands On" Treatments...
MYOFACIAL RELEASE is a type of massage that stretches the fascia and releases bonds between the fascia in order to relieve pain. The fascia is the thick band of tissue beneath the skin that covers muscles, organs and bones. The fascia can become tightened or restricted by stress, injury, inflammation and poor posture. There are two forms of myofascial release - the direct and the indirect method. The direct method gets to the deep tissue to stretch and elongate the fascia. The indirect method is a gentle stretch that brings blood to the tissues and allows the fascia to 'unwind' itself.
JOINT MOBILISATION is a common practice among physiotherapists where a joint is moved passively to achieve a therapeutic effect. It is indicated with restriction of motion or pain due to tightness in the muscles and/or tendons. It can also assist in the reabsorbing of scar tissue, speed muscle healing and promote joint mobility by facilitating accessory motions. These are the involuntary movements of tendons and ligaments that bring about full range of motion.
SOFT TISSUE MASSAGE therapy is used in treating sprains and strains by manipulating specific muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue.
