Massage has many benefits, the biggest two being pain and stress relief. There are many different types of massage and everybody will have a different preference depending on their needs. If you’re confused about the types of massage and if it will be beneficial for you, read on!
Swedish massage is a relaxing massage, normally applied with light/medium pressure. It is perfect for someone who is seeking a general body treatment without specific targets. Great for relaxation, emotional stress and improvement of cardiovascular flow.
Is the broad name for massage covering sport, deep tissue and trigger point therapy. Remedial techniques aim to assess and find the cause of the pain, therefore targeting specific areas to treat. They normally involve a greater pressure on superficial and deeper layers of muscles. This style of massage is ideal for chronic pain management and correction of postural abnormalities and when working to address injuries.
Sports massage is specifically tailored for pre and post events, it helps prevent injuries and enhance flexibility before an event, as well as facilitating the healing process afterwards. Regular massage can also help achieve higher sport performance and maintain a healthier musculoskeletal system.
Massage is also ideal for pregnancy. It helps reduce swelling, decrease back and neck pain and keep you moving freely. At Physionorth we have special pregnancy pillows to allow you to lie on your stomach comfortably during your treatment. Alternatively, you can lie on your side for treatment if you would prefer. At Physionorth our pregnancy massage is tailored to your individual needs and preferences.
PLEASE NOTE, we do not recommend having a massage in the first trimester (i.e. first 12 weeks) of pregnancy.
Dry needling differs from acupuncture in the theory and location of the needles. Acupuncture involves a different assessment and focuses on the treatment of medical conditions by restoring the flow of energy through points in the body called meridians. Carissa and Magda are qualified to use dry needling within their massage to alleviate some of your pain.
Physionorth has four fully qualified massage therapists, who work alongside the Physiotherapists to get the best results for their patients.
