Soft Tissue Therapy involves direct physical action on the muscles, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissue such as fascia in conjunction with exercise advice for the treatment, rehabilitation and management of muscular-skeletal problems.
The treatment includes a wide range of massage depths, pressures and techniques best suited to your body at any given time. Aiming to elevate aches, pains and injuries that are attributing to your body’s soft tissues.
It offers a great way of recovering from training and competitions as well as helping prevent injury. Most of us who compete in sport incur the physical stresses of a job and family life too, so often what appears to be a ‘sports injury’ actually has more to do with underlying postural and occupational factors. As a soft tissue therapist we consider all of this then include massage within a framework of:
- Injury assessment
- Advanced treatment techniques
- Exercise and advice to enhance recovery and prevent injury
- Improved posture and function advice
Soft Tissue Therapy is not just beneficial for athletes/sports amateurs but also anyone suffering with muscular aches and pains, headaches, stress related tension. It also has a wide variety of potential mental health benefits, including the ability to induce a relaxed state of mind.
