Massage And Myofascial Release

"Massage can be used in acute and chronic pain to reduce pain, swelling and promotes desensitisation of hypersensitive tissues"

Deep tissue massage mainly focuses on realigning deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. Where there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually bands of painful rigid tissue and the technique and movements of deep tissue massage helps to break down these adhesions relieving pain and muscle tension. Soft tissue massage is a much lighter alternative for gently mobilising soft tissue skin and muscle. Massage can be used to in acute and chronic pain to reduce pain, swelling and promotes de-sensitisation of hypersensitive tissues.
