Project Description

Massage

Massage therapy is a key component in sports medicine; it not only relieves aches, pain, strains, soreness, stiffness and injury-related problems, but it also has the powerful effect on relieving tension and stress from the body. Different massage techniques can optimise performance, relieve pain and stiffness, create an overall sense of well-being, re-energise, revitalise and rejuvenate the body.

There are various types of massage that can be performed by our highly trained myotherapist and physiotherapists at Domain Health:

Specifically designed for athletes of all ages and and both genders, sports massage targets specific areas, based on the sport and individual, to optimise performance and recovery. This form of massage reduces muscular tension and heals strained muscles to allow peak performance and minimizing the risk of injury.

Releases deep-seated chronic patterns of muscular tension. This form of massage loosens muscle tissues, increases blood and oxygen circulation to areas of stiffness and tension, and promotes greater flexibility and movement.

This form of massage alleviates abnormal muscle contractions, by deactivating trigger points (“knot’s”), and thus allows the muscle to stretch and lengthen more fully. A combination of deep and soft tissue massage is used as well as stretching to relieve tense or tight muscles, thus improving range of motion and preventing pain and injury.

Dry needling is a term used to differentiate the use of needling in Western medicine from the use of needling in Chinese medicine, which is referred to as acupuncture.

Dry needling is the use of a single, fine needle which is placed into the tissue to create a physiological reaction. It often works remarkably well in reducing muscular tension, spasm, tightness and reducing fatigue. To find out more please speak to one of our qualified dry needling experts.
