Osteopathy is a combination of joint mobilisation, manipulation and deep tissue massage. We may also use sports taping and dry needling in a treatment session. This treatment mainly works on the muscles, bones and joints (the musculoskeletal system) to help reduce pain and increase mobility. Sessions will also include lifestyle advice and exercise guidance and prescription. We can offer this treatment for anyone 12 years and upwards.
Remedial & Sports Massage
Sports & Remedial massage is a form of deep tissue massage which helps to get blood and nutrients circulating within the muscles and tissues. Which; relieves aching muscles, aids recovery from injuries (reduces recovery time following an injury by breaking down scar tissue which forms post injury as well as reducing the risks of re-injury), decreases tension, lengthen and loosen tight muscles (which increases flexibility and range of motion within joints), as well as increases mental awareness and relaxation. Massage techniques include various massage strokes, myofascial release and stretching.
Cupping therapy is a type of tool used as a diagnostic treatment as well as therapeutic therapy. It involves glass cups placed on affected areas with a suction pump to lift the tissues. Opposed to massage, cupping creates a negative pressure which separates layers of tissues. This helps to increase blood flow, hydrate tissues, eliminate waste products as well as removing energy blockage in muscles, skin and joints. It can be performed anywhere on the body and can be performed 3 days - 2 weeks post injury depending on the severity (more severe injuries can be performed up to months after). The cups are left on the areas for between 5 - 10 minutes or less depending on strength of suction and the client. It is beneficial for treating inflammation, scar tissue, toxin stagnation, movement restrictions, posture problems, chronic pain, cramps, pre & post surgical conditions, high blood pressure, headaches & migraines, arthritis, sleep problems, vascular insufficiency and sport rehab and performance. After the treatment you may notice slight discolored marks where the cup has been. Don’t be alarmed! This is a natural histamine response and should disappear in a couple of days to a week depending on the strength of the suction.
‘Aromatherapy’ describes the therapeutic use of essential oils, which are carefully blended for each individual client and applied through massage to help improve general health and well-being. A consultation between the client and therapist prior to treatment will help identify the most beneficial blend for each client, taking account of the mind, body and the spirit. Each essential oil has unique properties and regular aromatherapy massage can be used to help alleviate a range of emotional and physical symptoms including muscular aches and pains, stress, anxiety and insomnia. This often results in a feeling of deep relaxation and renewed vitality.
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing therapy that uses the application of pressure to treat the whole body through a series of 'reflex points' on the feet. It has evolved to encompass Eastern philosophies of wellbeing and is often described as encouraging the flow of natural energy (chi) to help bring us back into a state of balance. With every aspect of ourselves, physically and mentally, mirrored in the feet this enables a complete body treatment. Reflexology is often recommended for stress and anxiety and is commonly used by those suffering from insomnia, digestive disorders, menopausal symptoms and ME. It can be used safely after the first trimester and may help some women to relieve associated symptoms of pregnancy.
