A deep remedial massage performed to create the conditions for the body’s return to normal health after injury or due to general stress and tension. During treatment there may be tenderness in areas that are being treated. The therapist uses the patient’s feedback to pinpoint the damaged tissue and to regulate pressure. Treatment may include a combination of techniques such as trigger point, myofascial release, stretching, etc. Where appropriate, additional therapies may be incorporated including infrared heat, wet heat, dry needling, ice and/or TENs machine technology.
Traditional Eastern Cupping can also be utilised if so desired. Cupping is a method of applying acupressure by creating a vacuum on the patient’s skin to dispel stagnant blood and lymph, thereby improving flow. The suction created through the cupping method loosens impacted nerve endings and restores them to their original state. The ‘marks’ often seen in cupping clients are not bruises but rather as a result of the fluid coming up to the surface of the skin before being dispersed. Cupping is an excellent way to increase circulation, remove adhesions and stimulate the nervous system.

Shockwave Therapy (SWT) produces high-energy acoustic pulses to increases blood circulation effectively stimulating the body’s intrinsic repair mechanisms. The high-energy acoustic waves that are transmitted through the surface of the skin are spread radially (spherically) into the body and the body responds with increased metabolic activity around the area of the pain. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. In other words, Shockwave Therapy is all about activating the body’s self-healing abilities.
SWT is a fast and effective non-invasive method of eliminating or reducing many painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Provided you are a candidate for this type of treatment, clinical studies suggest there is an 80% – 85% chance this technology will improve your condition. Clinical studies further confirm that 88% of patients treated for calcanial spurs and 95% of those treated for tennis elbow rated the results as “very good” or “good” only weeks after treatment. Numerous clinical trials have been published and are available by study online.
There are many conditions that can be treated by Shockwave including*:
