Massage brings freedom of movement

Your first appointment starts with a detailed medical case history. The medical history, previous problems and medical checks taken into account. Therapy typically involves the style or type of style you have chosen. Generally, Deep soft tissue massage will work quite firmly along specific muscles and reinvigorates nerve pathways and has many documented benefits. Treatment tends to release muscular reflexes and tissue shortening ( stiffness) that can lead to fibrosis, deep muscle pain and stiffness. The massage provides a fantastic sense of lightness, freedom of movement and may help to reduce further injuries.

 Mobilisation or manipulation of the spine (helping the central control of the whole body), articulation of peripheral joints to aid mobility and soft-tissue work is part of some sessions. Others include reflex and trigger point therapy and nerve–release techniques to improve the tensions through the nervous system. Excellent for early stages of sciatica or low back pain. Initial treatment can reduce the risk of any popped disc, joint and nerve injuries.

Sports massage and Deep Soft Tissue Massage

 Sports massage is a form of deep soft tissue manipulation that uses several firm-specific techniques. Sports massage for treating physically active individuals, although will suit anyone involved in heavy-duty physical activities and sports performance.  Firm deep tissue treatment also works just as well for people that drive or sit at desks for hours. Some people are more vulnerable to injury because of the amount of mental or physical stresses placed on their body. In time these tensions can become very painful. Sports massages can help to relieve niggling aches and pains, best treated early before the symptoms develop into anything more serious. Massage can also be useful for post-event relaxation and recovery after training or an event.

 

 

Massage helps reduce stress and muscular tension

Sports massage is a brilliant way to relieve stress, tension and fatigue. Sports therapy helps to maintain muscular conditioning and joint flexibility for competition. Therapy will almost certainly increase your flexibility, reduce muscular tension and improve athletic performance. Besides flexibility deep tissue eases the effects caused by overtraining which may cause tissue shortening and pain. Firm sports treatment can help you to keep your body flexible, aid your performance and assist you in rehabilitation from injuries and help you stay stress-free and comfortable. We are pleased to provide sports, Medical, Swedish and deep soft tissue massage with our  specialists at The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice.

Holistic massage

The primary difference between holistic healing apart from alternative, complementary or integrative medicine is that your physical health is not necessarily the primary focus. 

The experience of physical or emotional pain and discomfort that follows will first prompt interest and search for emotional wellness in the essence of holistic healing. It is true that our sufferings and other physical aches demand our attention. Often shouting or complaining to us to let us know they’re not happy. It is difficult to ignore the obvious when we are physically hurting. Common sense often in the form of pain tells us that we should seek help to alleviate our discomforts. Holistic healing is not an “alternative” to conventional medical care but aims to support, re-energise and balance the mind and body long before the disease process manifests. Often the body is influenced subtly by a chemically aggressive world there can be side effects that manifest in many ways and may cause further disease or depression.

Physical illnesses are often indeed the manifestation of a greater imbalance. Often the feelings have often taken a long time to develop through many episodes over many years. In part “burn out”, chronic fatigue or metabolic diseases may or may not have a cause in the physical but be a combination of subtle abuse.

Holistic or “whole istic” healing addresses all parts of the individual, body and spirit.  Not just the physical aspect of a person where manifested illnesses are most apparent we look wider and possibly deeper into who you are and the ways you live. Holistic healing is not intended to serve as a band-aid or a one time fix. It is an ongoing journey of discovery in search of more answers and ultimately; living better, being healthier and striving for wholeness and well being.
