In addition to these, the following therapies and advice is also offered:

Postural Assessment

Poor posture over time can lead to problems with bodily functions and internal organs.  The brief assessment will enable the therapist to assess your posture.  This may reveal any stiffness or tight muscles and any other alignment and movement issues.  It may then be clear about which soft tissues need to be treated.

Muscular Pain Appraisal

An appraisal of your muscular discomfort will be discussed with you so that it is clear as to how the therapy can be applied to you.  This will be in conjunction with any Postural Assessment at the beginning of your session.

Sports Aches and Muscular Stiffness

Therapeutic sports massage is a type of massage technique that focuses on treating the soft tissue aches, injuries and pains.  These are generally associated with recreational activities.  Massage can relieve symptoms of muscle stiffness, improve relaxation and help to improve the circulation of the blood and oxygen within the body.

If you are suffering with minor aches and muscular stiffness, therapeutic massage can get you back to your activity sooner than if left untreated.

Indian Head Massage

This is a massage therapy that works specifically on the area of the head, scalp, neck and extending to the shoulders and upper back.  It is based on the traditional form of head massage practiced in India for over a thousand years.  It is suitable for most people and can be performed with or without the use of oil.

Exercise Advice

After certain therapy sessions and depending on the level of your muscle imbalances, you will be shown specific exercise and stretching techniques.  These will help ease your aches and pains before your next visit.  For health reasons you will be advised if these are suitable for you and if they need to be repeated several times.
