Looking for a stress-relieving or mind-clearing massage? There’s no need to search any farther than this establishment.
Our staff can use a range of deep tissue techniques to address any persistent tensions or contractions that are giving you discomfort or restricting your movement, depending on your needs and diagnosis.
“Deep Tissue Therapy”
This type of Best Deep Tissue Massage at Optimal Spine & Sport Dimensions focuses on realigning the deepest layers of muscles and connective tissue. Chronically tense and constricted areas like the neck, low back, and aching shoulders benefit the most from this technique.
Adhesions (painful, stiff bands of tissue) form in muscles, tendons, and ligaments as a result of persistent muscle stress or injury. Adhesions can obstruct blood flow, resulting in discomfort, restricted mobility, and even inflammation.
In order to alleviate discomfort and restore normal movement, our deep tissue massage breaks down these adhesions physically. Deep pressure and friction are typically used by massage therapists to achieve this goal.
Optimal Spine’s deep tissue massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets a specific issue, such as:
- Pain that lasts for a long time
- Mobility is restricted
- The healing process (e.g. falls, minor sports injuries)
- Stress-related conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome
- Problems with one’s posture
- Involuntary muscle contraction
After a deep tissue massage, many of our patients feel an instant improvement in their range of motion. It’s possible for deep tissue massage therapists to apply pressure to the skin with their fingertips as well as with their hands, elbows, and forearms.
In order to remove metabolic waste from the tissues, you should drink plenty of water after your Deep Tissue Massage In Croydon at Optimal Spine in croydon. You may be instructed to breathe deeply when the massage therapist works on certain stiff areas.
Needling without the use of needles
Skilled, certified practitioners use dry needling to treat their patients. Neuromusculoskeletal discomfort and mobility problems can be treated using a tiny monofilament needle inserted through the skin.
What exactly is a “trigger point,” and how does one identify one?
To put it another way, a trigger point is a localized area of contraction or tightness in a muscle fiber that might impair movement, refer to pain, or result in localized soreness. Applying dry needling to a trigger point or malfunctioning muscle can relieve tension, enhance blood flow and alleviate both localized and transferred pain.
Dry needling is not the same as acupuncture, as should be obvious. It shares many of the same tools, but the similarities end there. Practitioners of dry needling have received varying levels of training in this technique.
Dry needling is anchored in Western medicine and the evaluation of pain patterns, posture, movement limitations, function, and orthopedic tests, whereas acupuncture is based on Eastern medicine.
It is the purpose of dry needling to alleviate discomfort, inactivate trigger points and restore function to the muscle tissue.
A multitude of musculoskeletal conditions, including shoulder, neck, heel, hip, and back pain, can be treated by dry needling.
