Massage Therapy helps us to relax and can help ease aches and pains. It triggers the release of the body`s natural painkillers and gives a good sense of contentment. Massage is a general term - you may have come across Swedish massage, Sports massage and many others. Each type has its own specific methods.At fix-u we offer SPORTS MASSAGE and SWEDISH MASSAGE.
Anyone can benefit from Sports Massage, it is not just for the elite athlete, but those who like gardening, walking, jogging and many other pastimes and hobbies.The main purpose of Sports Massage Therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body`s soft tissues during both sedentary jobs and physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Sports Massage has many benefits. In addition to feeling good, it reduces the heart rate and blood pressure, increases circulation and lymph flow, reduces muscle tension, improves flexibility and relieves pain.
The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. It shortens recovery time time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management.
Ultrasound is a treatment modality used by physical therapists that utilise high or low frequency sound waves. These sound waves are transmitted to the surrounding soft tissue and blood vessels. They penetrate the muscles to cause deep tissue/muscle warming. This promotes relaxation and can therefore be used in treating muscle tightness and spasms. The warming effect also causes increased circulation in the vessel which assists healing. Reduced sound waves can also decrease inflammation.
At fix-u our therapists are qualified to use a combination of ultrasound and both forms of massage along with providing you with a stretching and functional exercise programme to help you return to full fitness again.
