What is Massage?

 

Massage can help with:

Stimulating healing:- The body is an amazing and smart structure that has the ability to heal itself. With the input of massage, the tissues that make up the body are stimulated, effecting numerous systems within our body meaning a healing response can begin.

 

Correct messaging in the nervous system:- Pain can arise from dysfunction in our body (the pain is actually a message from the affected area to our brain, telling it that something is not right!) If this dysfunction continues for a long period of time, our nervous system needs to send more messages to the brain, to recognise the dysfunction. The upshot of this is that our brain actually becomes more sensitive to pain signals, universally! Massage can provide new stimulation to the nervous system and brain, to help overcome the dysfunction and pain signals, allowing correct information to be sent to the brain. This allows our body to gradually re-educate itself on how pain signals should be dealt with.

 

Improves circulation:- Massage helps stimulate muscles by causing increased blood flow to an area of soft tissue. This helps bring increased oxygen and nutrition to targeted areas of musculature.

 

Breakdown of collagen fibre:- Collagen is a natural building block of tissues which the body lays downs at the site of injuries. Directly after a tissue injury, the body will lay down a lot of collagen to patch over the injury. This is great in the short term, but not very good for long term muscle use as it does not operate in the same way as a healthy muscle. Through massage, the tissue fibres are assisted to move in the correct direction, helping the body break down the fibres which may be laid down in the incorrect orientation. This reduces the chance of “knots” forming where collagen crosses numerous fibres preventing fibres of muscles from moving.

 

Relaxation: - Many of us have busy lives where stopping just doesn’t happen. When we do; many of us turn to screens and bright lights which keep our brains highly active and doesn’t allow us to turn off and replenish crucial nutrients. Massage helps you have time with hands-on human contact to relax and unwind.

 

Neuro-Muscular:- It is common for our body to protect itself post “stress” or “injury”. It does this by raising muscle and nerve activity which can result in muscle and joint tightness. This is where chiropractic can have an influence, but likewise massage can help build on chiropractic care and reduce muscle tightness associated with the body’s protect response. A lot of our practice members find they get the best results when both are combined together.

 

Strength:- Power and strength are defined by the ability of a relaxed tissue to contract and return to a relaxed state, not just the size of your muscle fibres. This is because some of the muscle fibres may have lost the ability to contract and relax fully due to build up of collagen fibres - a by-product of training. These fibres can affect the normal contractile function of the muscle, which will in turn have a bearing on strength and power.

 

Biomechanics:- Massage may help your body’s tissues be equally relaxed, meaning that overall you will have more balanced movements of the spine and limbs. This could affect gait, sports performance or balance itself.

 

Lymph drainage:- Some very light techniques of massage help the drainage of tissue fluid, where periods of inactivity, injury or surgery may have damaged your body’s natural ability to normally remove the build up.

 

Improvement in proprioception:- Your brain has a map of your body, which it generates from the signals it receives from joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves from soft tissue. If your soft tissues are dysfunctional, some messages may be incorrectly sent to the brain. This will mean that the map of your body that your brain sees is imbalanced. This could lead to changes in balance, posture and movement.

 

Neuroplasticity and movement patterns:- Our bodies want to survive and if we aren’t able to function properly then our brains change the way we move to try and get around the problem. This is good in the short term, but realistically means that we may put strain on other tissues and burn energy inefficiently. This may mean that to do one movement our body may instead use more unnecessary muscles to do the same thing. By putting stimulus into the body via massage, the brain may learn how to simplify the way we operate muscles

Time-lapse Massage

 

Your body is the greatest healer on the planet, and we believe that this is facilitated best when your nervous system is allowed to function with minimal stress placed on it.

Massage Process:

 

At your first appointment, 15 minutes extra time will be added so your clinician can go through a detailed case history and perform an examination. This will invlove points about your overall medical history, diet, nutrition and hydration, previous injuries and current exercise/hobbies.

 

The idea of this is to gauge if everything is safe to proceed with massage, make sure massage is the correct care for you, see what stresses your body is under, and how you move on a daily basis.

 

At some point during the first stages of your case, you will also recieve a functional assessment using our modern scanning system. This will allow your clinican to monitor your ongoing health & progression with care.

Orthopaedic tests will also be carried out by your clinician to make sure there is nothing that needs further attention.

All the above is still under the same price of a normal session.

 

Massage, in most cases, will be given on your first appointment. Obviously, there may be some exceptions to the rule depending on your case. After your session, your clinician will advise any exercises or points to help benefit your health and make any changes that have occured in the session last for longer.

 

After collecting all the information, your clinician will form a care plan going forward to try to help you achieve your health goals set out on your first session.

 

Plans of care usually consist of multiple sessions to create positive change in the body - like going to the gym to build strength it takes multiple repetitions of lifting weights to get strong.

 

Massage appointments are also available for one-off relaxation and destressing sessions. If this is of interest, mention this to the clinician on your appointment or when booking your first appointments with reception.

Prioritise yourself, invest in your health, and give us a call today to start your journey towards a healthier future.
