About Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic massage is the type of massage patients receive in clinics and its effects can influence soft tissue healing, circulation, muscle tone, muscle flexibility and pain. Therapeutic massage is an umbrella term that includes different massage concepts.
The massage experience may vary depending on the concept used, the state of the injury and the patient’s pain threshold. You always need to liaise with your physiotherapist and agree the level of pressure which is acceptable. Although, therapeutic massage can be relaxing at times, its not aiming on relaxation but to influence the recovery of the treated area.
We are trained in several therapeutic massage concepts including Swedish massage, myofascial (soft tissue) release, trigger point pressure release, deep tissue massage, sports massage, and lymphatic drainage massage. Following assessment of your condition we will decide which concept or combination of concepts is more appropriate for your case.
