For The Treatment Of
Massage therapy at The Body Therapy Clinic uses a combination of a number of techniques to bring the body into alignment enabling it to heal and work at its optimum level.
The technique/s used will be what we assess will get the best releases and results for each individual client. Deep tissue massage techniques, acupressure, myo-fascial release, trigger point releases and energy work are used to balance the body relieving it of blockages and tension.
Ongoing study is an important part of our commitment to you, our clients. We treat a wide range of pain and injury - acute and chronic, So whether you present with a problem or injury, or are just in need of some rebalancing and relaxation we have the expertise to help you.
Zentherapy is hands-on, deep tissue work that aligns the body’s physical structure and eliminates the blocks in muscles, joints, and connective tissue. As the body’s structure is balanced, pain is relieved, movement is easier and vital energy(“Ki”) increases.
Zentherapy works through the body from top to toe, freeing the soft tissue and creating balance. The practitioner works with the client, locating blocks, moving tissue and creating more body awareness.
The therapy takes place over ten sessions to be completed in the client’s own time frame.
Our clients have found myofascial cupping to be incredibly helpful in reducing pain, tension and stress in the body. We find this technique to be a great addition to our regular massage sessions.
The Myofascial Cupping Technique™ was developed by David Sheehan in 2002. It involves vacuum cupping for both the prevention and treatment of injuries. It is a very different technique to traditional cupping and importantly, marking the skin is NOT part of the desired treatment outcome. It also should be performed at a pressure level that is almost painless to the client
How is it different to other massage techniques?
Unlike all other massage techniques that use compression, the Myofascial Cupping Technique™ is unique in that it ‘lifts and separates’ soft tissue, which in turn can increase nutrient-rich blood supply to the tissue, while giving a gentle passive stretch to the underlying soft tissue.
Benefits from the Myofascial Cupping Technique™
The Myofascial Cupping Technique™ can provide profound benefits, particularly with assisting the body in maintaining Range Of Motion, eliminating Myofascial Trigger Points and reducing restrictive and sometimes painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement originating from sports and the workplace. By reducing fascial adhesions, while encouraging optimal hydration levels of soft tissue, the Myofascial Cupping Technique™ can assist in reducing the incidence of injury and maintaining functional soft tissue.
