Massages comes in a wide variety of techniques, here at Neurohealth our Massage Therapist focuses on four techniques to release stress, tension and pain.

Remedial Massage

This is a fusion of many different styles of massage. Remedial Massage aims to restore balance to the body. It is used to treat a range of issues including anything from minor niggles, muscle aches and pains through chronic postural problems. It helps to remove blockages, scar tissue and adhesions, speeds up recovery and encourages more complete healing.

In this form of massage all-round health improvement is seen; better sleep, decreased pain, increases in vitality and performance levels, as well as increased mobility. In Remedial Massage, Steve uses a multitude of techniques from stretching to active tissue release to myofascial and more, to address an issue and help you walk without pain.

Myofascial Release Technique

Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat adhesions in muscle and its surrounding connective tissues and resulting pain and restriction of motion.

This technique specifically works on connective tissue. If you can imagine a piece of steak the connective tissue is the thin white layers in the muscle. It binds everything together, your muscles, bones, skins and tendons.

If you have a massage that works solely on your muscles and your fascia is still bound up, it is likely that you will feel good immediately after the massage but the next day, you may be back to feeling the same because the restriction wasn’t really addressed.

This type of massage will assist your body in holding your chiropractic adjustments.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.

In this type of massage the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage is like Swedish Massage in that it is designed to relax the body, however the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.

The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Lymphatic Drainage

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, excess fluids, low immunity, swollen node and also for the physically inactive.
