The first session will include an assessment to identify the injury or the condition the patient is suffering from, which may affect the muscles, joints, bones, and soft tissues.
The next step will be creating a treatment plan which includes a hands-on approach with joint mobilization, stretching, deep and soft tissue massage, muscles and fascia release.
It also includes advice and education, the use of therapeutic exercises (strengthening and balance) to facilitate neuromuscular control of the movement, rehabilitation work, in terms of managing the pain, restoring the movement, and reducing the risk of injury or illness in the future.
Physiotherapy can help the following conditions:
Myofascial release is a gentle no- invasive hands-on technique that works on the body’s connective tissue – fascia- to release physical restrictions and pain disorders caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues.
Coming from a holistic tradition, it takes a mind-body approach, recognizing that emotional experiences and trauma can play an important part in our experience of pain.
The benefits of Myofascial Release are:
Myofascial release is especially for people who experienced chronic pain from:
· Accident and injury
· Surgery and scar tissue
· The repetitive nature of their work or leisure activities (e.g. computers or gardening)
· Their posture
Gentle manual therapy that aids to release the restriction of the connective tissue (fascia) in the abdominal and pelvic cavities. The gentle forces encourage the normal movements of the organs (viscera) and allow them to glide smoothly within the body. Visceral Manipulation can potentially improve the function of the individual organs, organ systems, and the structural integrity of the entire body.
Visceral Manipulation can help with the following conditions:
- Acid Reflux
- Ovary/ Menstrual symptoms
- Abdominal pain
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
A massage technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries with a firm and sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
Deep tissue massage will work out the knots from stressed, overworked muscles and connective tissue to alleviate immediate pain, as well as chronic joint and muscle pain. It also promotes faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Deep tissue massage can help with different conditions such as:
- Chronic pain
- Limited mobility
-Recovery from injuries
- Repetitive strain injury
- Muscle tension or spasm
- After workout
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
Lymph drainage massage has a potential health benefit. This massage focuses on the lymphatic system and helps the body maintain proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions.
Rhythmic movements with very light pressure stimulate the lymphatic system ( which is very superficial, close to the skin) and make the lymph fluid move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes, which filter all the debris and waste products present in the lymphatic system. It helps, in fact, to increase the flow of toxins through the body and back to the organs that eliminate them, such as the spleen and the liver.
Lymphatic drainage massage can be used in people suffering from:
- Swelling or edema
- Skin disorders
- Digestive problems
