Soft tissue therapy can help

  • relieve aching and tense muscles
  • increase flexibility
  • improve posture
  • prepare and recover from events
  • recover faster from injuries.

Treatment includes:

  • Assessment to determine treatment plan for the individual client.
  • Treatment with a range of soft tissue techniques (including massage) to help recovery from injury and improve soft tissue condition and joint mobility.
  • Kinesiology taping if needed/required.
  • Muscle Activation (Be Activated) This involves assessing how the body moves and compensatory patterns and tension that may have developed. Using muscle activation and correcting poor breathing patterns will help your muscles function the way they are intended so your body becomes stronger, resilient and energised.
  • Rehabilitation – exercise advice including strengthening and stretching aimed at speeding up recovery, preventing injury recurrence and improving posture, performance and function.
