Many people suffer from conditions that cause frequent discomfort and pain. Usually these conditions are diagnosed by the medical practitioner after routine investigations like x-rays and scans to determine the cause of pain and to rule out any form of major diseases like cancer. Unfortunately, these investigations do not show tightness or tense muscles, hence the use of this massage becomes quite helpful.
This massage is used to treat a number of common musculoskeletal problems such as:
- Headache & Neck pain.
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, (entrapment of neurovascular structures at the root of the neck or upper thoracic region).
- Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome, (popping/ cracking jaws and painful jaws unable to come together normally when chewing).
- Torticollis (wry neck).
- Frozen Shoulder.
- Rotator Cuff Injuries.
- Tendinitis: Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis – Injuries to the Hand and/ or Wrist).
- Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis).
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
- Low Back Pain
- Illiopsoas Disorder
- Kyphosis, Lordosis, Scoliosis. (these spinal conditions cannot be treated. Massage can help alleviate problems related with these conditions).
- Piriformis Syndrome (Buttock and/or sciatic type pain without lower back pain)
- Illiotibial Band (ITB) Syndrome (sufferers include those with high or low arches, short leg syndrome, bow legs or have pronation of the foot).
- Patella Femoral Syndrome (Knee pain localised around the knee cap).
- Shin Splints (pain along the shin bone).
- Plantar Fasciitis (pain at the bottom of the foot when standing especially first step in the morning)
When performing this massage I use sports massage techniques such as deep tissue, myofacial release, skin rolling, trigger point and stretches. Unfortunately, these massages are not as relaxing. They may be painful to those with low pain thresholds like me! But the results are outstandingly pain free.
1 hour session for any treatment will cost £30.00
