Massage Therapy is now offered at West Perth Osteopathy, used in conjunction with Osteopathic and Naturopathic treatment to optimise treatment outcomes.
What is Massage Therapy?
One of the fastest growing fields of health care today, massage is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Using their hands, a massage therapist may treat their patient, as well as detect physical and emotional problems, through palpating the patient’s body to determine the correct form of remedial treatment.
There are many benefits of massage, including:
- reducing and releasing muscle tension and pain
- improving circulation
- increasing joint flexibility
- promoting relaxation and
- de-stressing mind and body
- improving alertness, and decreasing mental & physical fatigue
- energising and rejuvenating mind and body
- improving immunity
Remedial Massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Our Remedial Massage therapist is highly knowledgeable on the effects of illness and injury on the musculoskeletal system, and uses this knowledge to tailor treatment to individual needs. A variety of massage techniques may be used, and stress-related or emotional aspects of your complaint will be considered in order to deliver you the most effective management and results.
Immediate benefits of Remedial Massage include reduced pain, improved mobility, decreased stress levels, and improved energy levels.
Remedial Massage may be useful before or after surgery, and, although a powerful tool when used alone, is often used to complement other natural therapies – including Osteopathy and Naturopathy.
