Advanced Massage

What can Advanced Massage do for you?

  • With the right technique, aches and pains can dissipate to give you a better quality of life
  • Problems may be a result of injury, trauma or operations. Muscles often react by ‘protecting’ and tightening up around the area. Massage is a great way to return muscles to their normal state
  • Injuries, traumas, operations and some medical problems are addressed using advanced and clinical massage
  • Releasing tensions in the muscles, posture, joints and symptoms are
  • Scar tissue from operations, accidents and injuries can cause trigger points and pain in other areas of the body that may not be local to a trauma. Trigger point therapy can address this.

Some of the benefits:

  • Massage encourages the parasympathetic nervous systems, thereby enhancing relaxation and harmony
  • Scar tissue from injuries, traumas and operations can be addressed and reduced
  • Releases ‘feel good’ hormones, so great for the mind as wells as the body
  • Speeds up recovery time after exercise, encouraging the removal of lactic acid, unwanted fluids and waste products. This is called Post Sports Massage
  • Warms up muscles prior to exercise. Pre Sports massage is great before an event
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Encourages relaxation, encouraging deeper breathing and lung capacity
  • Reduces likelihood of injury by improving flexibility, strength and mobility of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints
  • Encourages healing of injuries, reducing scar tissue and encouraging blood flow for healing purposes
  • The musculoskeletal system is rebalanced by releasing tension in the soft tissues causing the imbalance.

What is Advanced Massage?

Advanced massage are skills and techniques for a specific purpose which may be to release a muscle, or work with the deep muscles, release trigger points and many more. Examples of some of the techniques I use are:

  • MET (Muscular Energy Technique)
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Soft Tissue Release

Injuries are a pain, I know. Often the individual tries to ‘work through’ the pain by continuing the sport or activity that may have caused it.  However, you are in pain for a reason and first aid should be applied – R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation), followed by help.

Sports massage will be adapted to avoid excessive pain.

What happens in a session?

  • A consultation noting ALL medical conditions, historical and current, mental and physical
  • A full discussion about the problem(s) and how we can proceed. Also discussing what to expect after the session. Myofascial release will always be used
  • Craniosacral therapy may also be incorporated into the session. This will be discussed beforehand
  • Fully clothed or unclothed (leaving underwear on), if oil is beneficial for the therapy session, the session will take between 45 minutes and an hour
  • Exercises, stretches and strengthening may be given, along with advice about body health and wellbeing
  • Try to relax following the therapy and avoid exercise that day
  • Sometimes emotions are felt during the session. This is normal. Just let me know and I will help you through it.

This is not to replace medication, or other therapies you may be having to help with your situation.

Testimonial

"I came to Janet with a long term issue with my ankles. They would hurt and stiffen after exercise or any amount of walking. After three or four sessions of fascial release and massage, the symptoms were much improved. There is now no pain when I walk or exercise."
