Working to treat the problem
Soft tissue includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, and fascia. Under certain conditions these structures can default away from their normal relaxed state causing composite fibres to hold tension and shorten or even go into spasm thus preventing smooth muscular contraction and relaxation. Pressure, manipulation and relaxed stretching of problem areas in soft tissue will cause the default fibres to correct themselves.
These default characteristics also alter the physical position, chemical balance and ability to facilitate smooth passage of blood, lymph and energy flow within the soft tissue. The result is often direct impingement onto nearby nerves. The nerve system registers these faults to the brain by way of causing pain. By correcting the original soft tissue through remedial and acupressure massage, nerve impingement is released and pain stops as the brain now receives a different message which is that the various systems are working correctly.
Remedial Massage Therapy to stop pain can either have instantaneous results or take time to fully achieve. We will work together to establish cause (ie lifestyle, job, leisure, PC requirements, emotional stress) then resolve or change it via treatment, diet, exercise advice, orthopaedic assessment or referral to alternative treatment.
