Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are areas of hypotonics (knots) in your muscle tissue which can be a source of local, referred pain & muscle spasm.

Your practioner can locate these specific points and reduce/remove trigger points.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a treatment which involves inserting an extremely fine acupuncture needle into a Trigger Point.

Dry Needling is extremely effective & quick offering immediate results and is a form of pain free treatment.

Lymphatic Drainage

The Lymphatic system is our front line of defence in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.  The Lymph glands are connected by a broad network of vessels which transport the fluid.  Muscular movement is required to move it, as there is no “Heart” to pump it.

Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system.  It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on going tiredness, excell fluids, low immunity, swollen node and also for the physically inactive.


The aim at Healthwise Therapies is to keep you feeling ‘Normal”. This means pain and fatigue free with full range of movement.  Healthwise wants you to function well on all levels whether it be sports, hobbies, lifestyle or requirements at work.

There is no reason you should live with pain and discomfort. Healthwise Therapies focus on assessing the presenting condition and correcting the imbalances within your muscular skeletal system that will give you long term results.

This is achieved through a range of techniques including deep and soft muscle tissue massage, myofascial techniques including dry needling and rehabilitation exercises to strengthen and condition to aid in recovery.

Also to impart meaningful health knowledge about your body and what ‘you can do for it’.
