We offer two varying types of massage therapy. Firstly, deep tissue massage is a massage technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
Secondly, therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage.
Osteopathy is the manual medical treatment that coordinates between your bone structure and the surrounding muscles, ligaments, joints, blood flow, nerves and internal organs. As an Osteopath, I look at how your body integrates all of the above and offer physical therapy programs that encompass those areas responsible for your areas of pain in order to get you to the road of recovery!
Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body. This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins.
Cupping is a form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
What is the area of pain that you are suffering from? I have broken down the most frequent problems that people encounter that each require specialised treatment. The areas covered include: head and neck pain, shoulder and upper-back pain, mid-back pain, hip and groin pain, lower back and buttocks pain, elbow pain, knee pain and natural medicine.
For maximal results, in conjunction with treatment, a specific stretch/exercise programme is required. This is explained after the first treatment where a step-by-step plan is provided to get out of pain and prevent a reoccurrence, whilst improving mobility, posture and building up strength at the same time!
Strength & Conditioning
Conditioning exercises focus on engaging muscles correctly using a full range of motion. This helps prevent injuries by working on the weaker muscles, which reduces overusing of other muscles. This will not only encourage natural muscle growth but better muscle tone, improved flexibility and posture, as well as aiding in fat loss by improving body circulation and metabolic rate.
Strengthening exercises focus on how heavy your muscles can lift. Typically they will be whole body exercises (compound exercises). Again, focusing on good form with a full range of motion allows the muscles to work correctly.
Exercise rehabilitation (rehab) entails full physical recovery from injury post-trauma or post-surgery. It also consists of prehabilitation (prehab) which is getting the body prepared for surgery and a faster recovery.
Typically in the UK the NHS will discharge you once you have regained function and/or there has been a reduction of symptoms. For some they are discharged even if you haven't made any improvement. Maybe you too have felt like a number left with an exercise sheet with no follow up to deal with your problems. At this point it can be typical to become reliant on medication, which has side effects.
However, by having a good plan consisting of exercise rehab and treatment can help address the root problem. A progressive exercise plan can help rebuild the body by improving the mobility, slowly building up strength whilst reducing any inflammation. This is the building block to really improve someone's health and vitality where we look to the long term goals where someone can progress onto Strength & Conditioning.
Nutrition not only affects the body performance but also the way we think. A poor diet can affect our sleep, energy and cause hormone imbalance as a few examples. There's always a reason for these symptoms and it's never just coincidence.
People can get attached to food but I help people with their diet and nutrition by changing their mindset about food to improve their lifestyle. Specifically with the right nutrition we can control blood sugar levels, reduce elevated blood pressure and inflammation in the body which affects some people more with certain conditions.
My knowledge as a Naturopath and competing on stage as a fitness model can help those individuals wanting to lose unwanted water retention and what added supplements to take on top to improve sporting performance and to reduce body fat. That said, a good diet and regular training should be required before taking supplements.
