BODY THERAPY

At Infinity Health, we believe that each individual person needs specific individual treatment.  Therefore the following body therapy descriptions are to provide a description of what options we offer, but not necessarily all will be suitable or appropriate for you.

We will work with you and any health professionals who are currently providing care for you, to make sure our treatments are targeted and deliver the result you require.

Physical Therapist

A comprehensive treatment for chronic muscular pain and restriction.

 

Massage can include deep tissue massage techniques (this works on deeper tissues such as connective tissue or fascia), trigger point therapy, friction of adhered/ischemic tissue, joint mobilisation, myofacial stretching, assisted stretching, ice and heat treatment.  

This is a complex treatment that aims to bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, as well as enhancing the functioning of joints, muscles and biomechanics (movement).  It also aims to restore postural integrity.

Stretching and muscular retraining is an integral part of this therapy and we may recommend a second opinion for our on-site physiotherapists as required.

For treatment of chronic pain and soft tissue injury.

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY

Sports massage on leg

Both of these types of massage are very similar.  They aim to reduce muscular tension and/or pain, often including work on a specific restriction (i.e. frozen shoulder) and to aid soft-tissue repair.  

Massage techniques often include deep tissue massage techniques (this works on deeper tissues such as connective tissue or fascia), therapeutic techniques like lifting and pressing on muscles, joint mobilisation, stretching and ice/heat treatments. 

 

Sports massage can specifically refer to prepare muscles for activity and to aid recovery post event.  Typically a regular massage is recommended as an integral part of the active persons training programme.  This massage may be provided at events by arrangement.

 

A variety of massage techniques applied applicable to your sport and programme stage.

SPORTS or THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Back Massage

This treatment is designed to soothe and relax your muscles and mind, bring about deeper breathing and a sense of wellness.  It is not intended to address muscle tension or pain.

 

Massage techniques will include long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing.

 

The pressure applied will be deeply relaxing and rejuvenating but not painful as it is not the aim of this type of massage to make structural changes in your muscles.

This type of massage is perfect as a part of your stress management and self care routine.

 

Relaxation massage is all about relaxing. It focuses on giving the client time to recover from the stresses of daily life.
