Trigger Point Therapy – deactivating trigger points – tense bands of tissue in muscles and tendons that are tender on pressure and cause pain or referred pain.
Myofascial Release – restores mobility in the tough connective tissue (fascia) that runs throughout our bodies, and softens where tissues have become rigid, from injury or post surgery. Myofascial techniques are used to release deep and superficial scar tissue, as well as working on structural integration in restoring body mechanics.
In the words of John F Barnes – ‘Patients are referred to the Myofascial Release Treatment Centers from all over the world when traditional therapy, medication, or surgery has failed to produce the desired results. Myofascial Release has exploded on the therapeutic scene with an unprecedented impact and is considered the most effective form of therapy in the history of healthcare!’
Soft Tissue Release, Table Techniques and Sports Stretching – techniques used in stretching soft tissue.
Neural Mobilisation, Functional Movement and Applied Movement Neurology – releases nerve pain, improves body mechanics and movement, balance and proprioception.
Taping and Strapping –Taping assists pain relief, lymphatic drainage, bruising and muscle support. It is an extremely helpful aid to athletes.
