Massage is a very powerful therapy which can help with many physical and emotional problems. It can relieve joint pain and joint stiffness in different areas of your body and provide relief from stress and anxiety issues which, in turn, impact on your physical health and ability to live life to the full. It is therefore among the techniques most often offered by physiotherapists.
There are many different massage styles, pressures and techniques, depending on the issue and area of the body to be treated. These range from lighter treatments such as Swedish massage, through to deep tissue therapy which is stronger and penetrates through layers of skin, muscle and ligament to target specific problems and help relieve stiffness and pain.
Whichever type you have, it will involve us pressing, rubbing and kneading your muscles, skin and soft tissue with our hands, fingers, forearms, elbows and sometimes feet.
Our Hands That Heal team are highly skilled in manual therapy and massage therapy (visit our Team page) . When you contact us with a physical issue, we will first thoroughly assess you to understand your symptoms and likely causes. If we then believe massage therapy can help you as part of a holistic treatment and exercise plan, we will explain exactly what form your massage will take and what you can expect before, during and after your treatment.
