Types of treatment

Soft tissue release techniques
Soft Tissue Release are dynamic, highly effective techniques that have an immediate and powerful effect on muscle and connective tissue. STR is a combination of Myofascial Release, Therapeutic Massage, and Active Assisted Stretching. The technique involves applying precise pressure during a specific stretch performed in multiple planes of movement.

Massage
Massage involves long, smooth strokes, kneading and other movements focused on superficial and deeper layers of muscle. It improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, reducing pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.

Myofascial release techniques
This is a form of soft tissue therapy aimed to reduce pain and limited movement and function. This is achieved by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.

Trigger point therapy
Uses a form of localised deep pressure within soft tissue work to treat target areas of palpable tight bands or knots in muscle tissue

Muscle energy techniques
A method of soft tissue technique using active muscular contractions combined with joint mobilisation to treat soft tissue and joint problems

Manual Therapy
A physical treatment primarily used by physiotherapists to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability; it most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilisation and manipulation.

Traction
A method of gapping the spinal joints to reduce pain and spasm - can be used in conjunction with manual therapy.

Ultrasound
This can be helpful in reducing inflammation, pain, assist the reduction of swelling and believed to assist with soft tissue healing.

Acupuncture
This is a chinese medicine techniques which involves inserting and manipulating fine needles into specific points along channels called meridians. It can be very effective in relieving pain in musculoskeletal conditions.

Assisted stretching
This is currently the fastest and most effective way known to increase muscle flexibility. It combines passive stretching and isometric stretching to achieve maximum static flexibility.

Mobilisation of the nervous system
Treatment techniques based on mobilising the nerves with respect to the other musculoskeletal system.

Expert advice and guidance on exercise / strengthening / balance for rehabilistation to full function

Anatomy in Motion
Systematic approach to assessing and influencing movement through gait (walking). Much of the chronic pain people experience can be mapped to problems in the gait cycle. Correcting these problems helps the body return to balance and a pain free space.
