At The Physio Studio we understand that traditional physiotherapy treatments are very effective for many problems, but we also firmly believe that a massage can be as beneficial for keeping some pain and dysfunction at bay.
These soft tissue injuries or ongoing tightness can underlie many of the problems that come through our doors. These need to be addressed to aid complete recovery and to avoid conditions reoccurring.
We offer massage therapy to anyone who feels they will benefit, either as a
one off relaxing treat
part of the preparation or recovery from a sporting activity
ongoing package of care
M.O.T for the body!
Once you are no longer required to see the physiotherapist, we have this wider team to continue your care or it can be an integral part of your treatment on the road back to wellbeing.
Sports massage benefits injured athletes by helping to speed healing and reduce downtime. It is also be used on healthy athletes after a vigorous workout to promote recovery and reduce the tension created by tight muscles.
The increase in circulation, reduction in scar tissue and lesions, and relaxing of the muscles all help speed healing and improve recovery. Another benefit of quality massage is the prevention of injuries. The muscles become more supple and resilient with massage.
It can also help identify muscle imbalances that could lead to future problems. A combination of assessment, massage, stretching, compression, frictions and trigger point techniques are used.
Deep tissue massage helps to relieve muscle spasms caused by stress, postural problems and/or exercise. It can be therapeutic or corrective.
This form of massage focuses on a specific area of the body. It uses various techniques with slower strokes and deeper pressure.
Swedish Massage has a valuable role to play in helping the body recover from injury. It helps stimulate the self-repair process and circulation to facilitate the delivery of vital nutrients and removal of waste products.
