Our bodies are made up of 70% soft tissue which includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and connective tissue. Our Soft Tissue Therapists have a detailed understanding of anatomy and use this understanding to ‘iron out’ unhappy soft tissue and return it to its natural, relaxed state.
Pain and restricted movement can be caused by: muscles that have become too tight (exercise or stress); soft tissue that has been damaged by an injury (strain or sprain); or when muscles ‘lock down’ when they are under threat (e.g. whiplash).
Our muscle memory helps us go about our day without having to think e.g. walking. However, we also create negative muscle memory from repeated actions such as typing at a desk or texting. These need to be re-corrected back to positive muscle memory.
Our experienced therapists will work with you to understand what is causing your pain or restriction, help you to understand what actions might be causing the problem and ultimately provide pain relief & improvement with treatment. Once we have worked your muscles and relieved the pain, we’ll then help you to understand what you can do in daily life to minimise the effects of our lifestyles on our bodies.
