What is soft tissue therapy?

Soft tissue therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body i.e. muscles, connective tissue/fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints. Soft tissue therapy helps alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. If employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, soft tissue therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.

Sports and performance soft tissue therapy is a combination of established osteopathic techniques and deep tissue massage, tailored to the individual. It is targeted towards improving loss of range, reducing pain and impacting on performance.

Your body is made up of 70% soft tissue. We specialise in injuries whether they are the result of everyday activities or from competing (at any level). Clinical reasoning and excellent palpation skills allow us to hone in on the problem area and have you well on the way to recovery in your first session. If you haven't tried a REAL deep tissue massage or had soft tissue therapy, then have this treatment, it's highly likely to solve your problem.

At times the treatment can be tender due to the therapist needing to work through the superficial tissues into the deeper structures to locate the underlying cause of the pain or tension.

Soft tissue therapy can both maintain and develop your bodies performance. Imagine a car that was never serviced or given an M.O.T. it would soon start breaking down. The body is very similar, we decide to work it harder, put it under greater strain through exercise or a change in job, yet we give that body minimal support or servicing. A GOOD treatment (and these are hard to find) is often the answer to optimising performance and remaining injury free.

If appropriate, you will be given a clear programme of exercises and stretches to follow at home. This is an essential part of the treatment process that is followed up in your next session, adjusting the exercises if needs be.
