If you have a particular area that needs treating or a problem, such as tension headaches, lower back pain or tennis elbow etc then deep tissue massage is for you. Deep Tissue massage can also help to improve mobility and relieve pain and stress. It treats the cause of your pain, therefore relieving any symptoms you are experiencing.
Regular deep tissue therapy sessions will help break up and eliminate any scar tissue build up. We often recommend repeat consultations and prescribed exercises are usually required for the long term treatment of chronic and acute conditions.
Graston Technique is a popular treatment for muscle, tendon, ligament, and soft tissue injuries. It is very effective at speeding healing and recovery, in both acute and chronic injuries. It is one of the most well-known manual therapy approaches that utilizes instruments or tools. Graston Technique is utilized in many professional, Olympic, and collegiate sports therapy programs. Specifically-designed stainless steel instruments have rounded, concave and convex edges. The edges are not sharp. Graston tools are classified under Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) and are used to detect and effectively treat soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. With these instruments your Burleigh Heads Massage practitioner can scan over and detect areas of fibrotic tissue.
There are six different Graston tools to help break up fascial restrictions or scar tissue that develops after trauma to muscles, ligaments, tendons, or fascia, which is commonly referred to as soft tissue. Scar tissue forms when tissue does not heal correctly, or is under chronic, repetitive stress. Scar tissue is weaker than normal muscle and connective tissue, which is why it becomes chronically sore with activity.
Scar tissue accumulates in the body whenever tissue undergoes excessive stress and strain. Scar tissue is like the body's duct tape; it is meant as a short term patch to help support tissue. However, in some cases the scar tissue is not replaced with normal collagen fibers. Scar tissue is also referred to as fascial adhesions, as it causes restrictions between the body's fascia. Stiffness, loss of normal range of motion and chronic pain develops from patches of fascial adhesions.
The next time a scar tissue patch undergoes stress and strain it becomes aggravated and flares up. This process causes more scar tissue to be added to the outside of the patch and the process repeats itself over and over, leading to larger accumulation of scar tissue patches.
Scar tissue patches can be likened to "onions." Scar tissue ends up growing in layers around the initial injury. Stress to the area aggravates the outside layers and triggers another layer to be formed. The layers further from the center are easier to aggravate than the inside layers, which is why the onion continues to grow in size without causing the inside area to properly repair.
The combination of physical, mental and psychological therapy is what sets traditional Thai massage apart from other types of massage. That’s why the benefits of Thai massage provide an all-encompassing body and mind treatment.
While all massage variants promote relaxation as well as muscle relief and reduced tension, Thai massage is one of the most invigorating, as it rigorously works your entire body.
Various positions throughout your treatment force fresh circulation that helps with lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic drainage requires muscular movement to help move waste, excess water, and bacteria out of the body.
Targeted Thai massage manipulation on the body awakens the nervous system and promotes toxin release, helping you to fight future illness and disease. Massage can also decrease the levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Gentle yet effective stretches done by your Thai massage therapist engages your neck and back muscles, resulting in a stronger and healthier posture. The sequence of stretches is so streamlined that muscle tension is released, and you can take pleasure in relieved back pain. Stress can wreak havoc on your health. Traditional Thai massage embodies a meditative-like state, and strongly focuses on the body’s flow of energy. This calming setting helps to soothe the mind and nervous system, reducing stress and anxiety.
Thai massage addresses the most common causes of a lack of concentration, including stress, anxiety, and sleep issues like insomnia. Many people often experience heightened awareness and better focus, too. Applied pressure energises the body by improving the flow of blood. Thai massage promotes better circulation and can also help with digestion, helping you feel leaner and stronger.
Relaxation is something that everyone deserves to enjoy on a regular basis. The pressures of modern life can make it difficult to unwind and relax.
