Massage Therapy at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy

THERAPEUTIC & SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is a manual therapy that concentrates on treating the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles and ligaments. Massage improves the blood supply to the muscles by stretching and kneading areas of tightness and contraction. Many musculoskeletal problems are stress related and massage can be a very effective way to help the body to balance and heal itself.

WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE?

Therapeutic massage uses a combination of deep tissue, sports massage and advanced massage techniques (especially trigger point therapy, soft tissue release and neuromuscular techniques). Working intuitively with slow deep release, it allows the body to slow down and relax. These methods can be successful with clients that are experiencing chronic pain, tension and stress, who require deep massage combined with a therapeutic approach.

BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

Massage is a manipulation of the soft tissue, particularly muscles, and is beneficial in several ways.

  • Promotes suppleness of the muscles
  • Improves circulation
  • Reduces stress levels
  • Alleviates aches and pains
  • Promotes a general sense of well-being

It is an effective way to prevent and treat sport injuries. In addition to this, it can relieve tired stiff joints and reduce swelling. It is a safe and non-invasive therapy and is suitable for all ages and conditions. By stimulating the lymphatic system, it can help with chronic skin conditions, which young people often suffer from. As well as this, massage can alleviate discomfort in pregnancy and speed up recovery after a surgery. In old age, it is important to maintain good mobility, and regular massage can help with that.

MASSAGE THERAPY AT THE PUTNEY CLINIC

At The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy, our therapeutic treatments are tailor-made to the individual and can combine deep tissue, sports massage and advanced massage techniques such as trigger point therapy, soft tissue release and neuromuscular techniques. Massage therapy can be used alone or as a part of rehabilitation treatments such as physiotherapy and osteopathy. There are several different types of techniques such as holistic, sport and lymphatic massage. Our therapists may use a combination of these techniques, depending on the client’s condition and needs.

The techniques employed in our massage treatments are used to:

  • Relieve chronic muscular tension, aches and pain
  • Complement Osteopathic treatment
  • Improve circulation and joint mobility
  • Reduce mental and physical fatigue
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Release emotional tension and stress
