Soft tissue therapy is the assessment, treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system.
Soft Tissue Therapy is on a much higher clinical level than a sport massage therapist, sports massage is just one small part of it. The aim is to treat all minor and chronic injuries whether caused through sport or any other lifestyle factor, using expert hand skills, massage and other more advanced techniques. It also aims to identify the underlying causes of injury and offer more long-term improvements in physical wellbeing and injury prevention.
Everyone suffers with these injuries at some time and they can badly affect their quality of life but treatment is often hard to find. Main-steam medicine may be good at treating more serious conditions but who deals with all these minor and chronic injuries?
We will use deep tissue massage skills to treat your body, along with manual stretching, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. This technique will help to relieve pain from repetitive strain injuries, help to reduce muscle tensions and help to achieve postural correction.
Soft Tissue therapy is also frequently used as a recovery strategy to help muscles recover from intensive exercise and training.
Our team of ISRM (Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage) accredited therapists based in Chelmsford, have the highest level of training available in the UK and will work with you on an individual basis to pinpoint exactly what you need to deliver the required treatment that provides the results you are seeking.
If it’s just stress relief and relaxation you are looking for, then like many of our clients, simply come and enjoy the opportunity!
It’s great that as a population we are now exercising more, but we are also leading busier and more active lives which is slowly taking its toll on our bodies. A soft tissue therapy session will help to ease any stiff muscles or joint pains, enabling better recovery to help the body perform daily tasks with ease, lessening the risk of injury.
A session will leave you feeling more relaxed with improved circulation, increased flexibility and a reduction of pain in the body. The treatment will help to relieve the tightness and target the trigger points to help relax muscles in the body.
