 Remedial massage

Remedial massage is used to treat specific problems, not only injuries but also health problems and musculoskeletal issues.

Remedial massage appointments are always a minimum of 1 hour due to the therapists needing time to locate and pin point the exact issues you are concerned about and decide on the very best treatment for maximum relief.

Our remedial massage therapists use a number of specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons, fascia and joints.

The various techniques employed to relieve pain include:

  • Swedish Massage Techniques
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Myofascial Release
  • Positional Release Techniques
  • Mobilisation Techniques
  • Stretching
  • Homecare Exercises

 

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is a gentle massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes. The purpose of this form of massage is as the name suggests, to relax the mind and body and not to concentrate on specific injuries or sore points. You will find the therapist moves more slowly and uses a lighter pressure to enable the increase in blood flow and circulation and to relieve stress and tension with the muscles.

It is not uncommon for someone to fall asleep during this form of massage, with its benefits just as significant as the more vigorous forms of therapy.

These benefits include stimulating the body’s lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.

Pre and Post Sports Massage

Sports massage is predominately used for sports events and is used for athletes to boost their performance in training both before and after training and competition. This form of massage aids in increasing circulation and blood flow to the muscles, to allow the athlete to feel warmed up and lighter in the joints and muscles.

Sports massage is also used as a workout for muscle flexibility and circulation, which in turn helps the muscles recover quicker for forthcoming events or activities, thus reducing any risks of sports injuries.

Pregnancy Massage

At Just the Spot, our therapists believe that massage therapy in pregnancy is vastly under-utilised in developing a healthy pregnancy, which can benefit women and their developing foetus enormously.

Massage decreases stress and improves sleeping habits, and has a balanced effect on glands which all contribute to immeasurable benefit throughout your pregnancy.

Our therapists will use techniques designed to:

  • Reduce neck, back and joint pain
  • Relieves muscle spasm and cramps
  • Alleviate stress on joints caused by the extra weight bearing
  • Reduce peripheral swelling, varicose veins and leg cramps
  • Helps to ease stretch marks, maintaining skin elasticity.

Massage in pregnancy is not intended to replace appropriate pre-natal care and is performed with the client lying on her side or in a reclined position on the massage table.

Deep Tissue Massage

This technique focuses on the deeper layer of the muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep layer of think muscles to relieve tension and assist with restoring correct blood and oxygen flow to the deeper layers of the muscle. Using friction and compression techniques along the grain of the muscle, Deep Tissue Massage will release deeply held tension. This treatment can cause some soreness after your session, however water is vital in assisting to wash out the toxins and within 24-48 hours you should feel the benefits.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage increases circulation and metabolism and eases tension and muscle soreness. Hot Stone Massage dates back to over 3000 years ago, combining hydrotherapy and thermalism with massage techniques to produce a deep healing treatment. With this technique the therapists are able to release more toxins and improve circulation whilst warming the skin to absorb the therapeutic oils. Hot Stone Massage has been used in the treatment of insomnia and depression. Sessions feature the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body to allow for deeper relaxation of the muscles.

Myotherapy

The myotherapist will assess and treat myofascial pain, injury and dysfunction affecting the clients movement and mobility. Myotherapy is used to prevent, correct and rehabilitate the soft tissue structure of the client. Myotherapy assesses muscles, nerves and joints to then treat the source of the pain.
