Our Treatments

Muscle Energy techniques

Increase muscle length and reduce tension

This technique is based on the theory of reciprocal inhibition: the muscles on one side of a joint will relax when the muscles on the other side of the joint contact.

This is done through application of manual pressure by the physical therapist. It can be used to increase range of motion, lengthen muscles in spasm or shortened and strengthen muscles.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Ungluing the restrictions that build up over time

A manual technique performed to break up any adhesions that are causing restrictions in the body.

These adhesions can consist of fibrous tissue (scar tissue), inelastic tissue, tissue fluids or any other tissue that is misaligned.

The goal of this treatment is to realign the tissue and remove restrictions, allowing muscles the freedom to move easier.

Postural Training

Bringing balance to the body

The focus of this treatment is to identify, then correct any postural problems that you may have.

These problems can negatively influence muscle function and structural alignment throughout the entire body, which can cause impairments and movement related problems that ultimately lead to injury, disfunction and pain.

With most people sat at computers during the workday, head forward and rounded shoulder postures are becoming more common, and over time can lead to pain and dysfunction in the upper back, neck and also restrict breathing, which in turn can lead to other symptoms.

We do a full comprehensive postural assessment at your first appointment to identify any areas that might be contributing to your pain.

Be Activated – Muscle Activation

Getting muscles to fire in the correct sequence – great for sports people

Over time, the body will often “cheat” and recruit muscles to compensate in order to maintain function, if it detects an imbalance that prevents us from breathing or moving properly.

Simple changes to incorrectly functioning muscles allow the body to make immediate shifts towards resilience, strength and speed. The results are incredible.

An Activated body will quickly change from a state of tension and pain, to a strong relaxed state of excellent performance. When we do the right thing, the body responds immediately.

Be Activated is used globally by elite sports teams, celebrities, the fitness industry and health practitioners alike. As well as treating injuries and enhancing sporting performance, it’s a powerful tool for stress management, and can quickly break common patterns of movement dysfunction and chronic pain.

Myofascial Release Technique

Working with the connective tissue to free restrictions that cause chronic pain

Myofascial release is a hands on technique done on the skin without oils. We are specialists in this therapy, and find it is very effective in reducing pain and dysfunction anywhere in the body.

By looking at the whole body to identify areas of restriction, we can then use gentle sustained compression on specific areas as we work toward getting your fascial system to soften and lengthen.

Fascial restrictions can create bizarre symptoms such as pain, tingling or burning some distance from the originally affected area as the strong fascia binds down on pain sensitive structures like nerves and blood vessels.
Fascia wraps and entwines around every single structure of the body, right down to cellular level, and its health and flexibility is key to our well being and our ability to perform whatever activities we need to or want to.

When it becomes injured through trauma, whether physical or emotional, it tightens down in response. Over time, the many tight areas pull on the rest of the interconnected fabric much like when you pull a thread on a sweater, causing our bodies to move in misalignment.

After releasing these restrictions clients often report a feeling of lightness, like weight has been lifted from the affected area after treatment, particularly after neck and shoulder treatments.

Manual Therapy

A blend of therapies used to bring balance and harmony back to the body

The ‘hands-on’ approach, sometimes referred to as ‘bodywork’ is what we do best. We take a whole-body approach to our treatments, identifying areas of restriction that are impacting on other areas of the body.

It will be the premier method that we will adopt to help remove restrictions in tissue. Along with removing these restrictions, manual therapy will promote relaxation, decrease pain, improve flexibility, strengthen tissue, and help improve movement patterns.

Manual therapy will consist of soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, Be Activated – muscle activation, stretching, strengthening, massage, muscle energy techniques and increased proprioception.
