What does Massage Therapy do?
Massage therapy relaxes the muscles and nervous system, improves circulation, aids digestion and by stimulating the lymphatic system speeds up the elimination of waste products.
Is a more in-depth massage technique designed to “remedy” certain muscular/ skeletal conditions, which may involve mobilisation techniques.
It has long been known that a passive movement, (e.g. movement of a joint, operated by someone else) of certain injured joint muscles, can be a relatively painless way to encourage a joint and the muscles of that joint to become freer and more mobile. If done by a qualified professional in a correct and gentle way, after first loosening the surrounding tissues by massage, it can help restore the full range of movement in that area faster and easier than some other forms of treatment.
Manipulative Therapy concentrates on the manipulation of joints. This technique is geared towards correcting the structural imbalances and tensions that have developed through incorrect movement, posture, habits, stress and strain to enable their full and normal range of movement, once the appropriate muscles, tendons and soft tissues have been suitably relaxed.
There are also other techniques used in addition to these?
Yes, electro-therapy and taping are some of the techniques which may be used. Some therapists are also qualified in other modalities which are outside the governance of FLY WITH THE FAIRIES and these therapies may also be incorporated within a treatment.
What conditions are likely to respond to treatment? Musculoskeletal Dysfunction examples are back pain, soft tissue injuries, muscle strains and sprains, spinal and peripheral joint problems.
Arthritis symptoms can be eased by increasing the range of movement and reducing the pain and discomfort.
Stress it is estimated the 80% of conditions are stress related, from anxiety, headaches, neck ache, back pain, digestive problems, respiratory problems, to generalised discomfort due to tension. All of these conditions can benefit from massage therapy which brings relaxation to the muscles, plus a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation to the patient.
Sports Injuries after initial first aid treatment massage helps damaged tissue heal quickly and correctly.
How do I find a Therapist?
By looking on the ‘Find a Therapist’ section of this web site. As our therapists are trained in different modalities, some conditions may be out of a therapist area of expertise. Always explain your problem/condition to the therapist when making an appointment in order that they can confirm that they would be able to treat your problem.
