Soft Tissue Therapy & Pilates

Prevent injuries, prepare the body for athletic or day-to-day activities and maintain it in optimal condition.

Due to the stress of modern life it is very easy to allow our bodies to become de-conditioned. Ongoing aches and pains can be addressed restoring range of motion and ongoing look at how to prevent re-occurrence.

Headaches
Pilates classes are open to everyone, not only is Pilates a powerful rehabilitation tool but a great way to get the very best out of your body and help prevent any problems  in the future. Classes can be adapted to give less or more challenging exercises depending on the individual. I offer one to one and group classes in Marlow. Please see the Pilates page for full details.

Here is a selection of client feedback.

We highly recommend this initial appointment type if you are suffering with an injury or long term issue which may benefit from a whole body perspective.

Soft Tissue Therapy Techniques

These are used in combination to treat a range of different conditions.

Deep tissue massage

Techniques to warm up and flush the soft tissues.

Trigger Point Therapy

Neuromuscular technique to treat soft tissue dysfunction.

Friction Techniques

Effective procedure to free adhesions and scar tissue.

Soft tissue release

Techniques to release local areas of soft tissue restriction.

Muscle energy techniques

To treat areas of myofascial restriction and to improve flexibility.

Positional release

Techniques to release chronic muscle tension.

Myofascial release

The fascia is a continuous web of tissue that covers the entire body, under the skin and surrounds individual muscles and groups of muscles. Myofascial restrictions are not shown on standard tests such as x-rays, CT scans or MRI scans, which means they are rarely diagnosed as the cause of chronic pain conditions. However, they may be described as adhesions. People with fascial restrictions are often prescribed medication such as anti-inflammatory drugs which will have no effect. Myofascial release techniques free up these restrictions.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping techniques run interference on pain signals which are directed to the brain, which reduces the sensation of pain, hence turning down the pain level. It decompresses swelling and inflammation by a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. It can attenuate muscle fatigue, help normalize muscle tone whilst distributing the physical stress, allowing full movement but distributing force through other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones. I use Rocktape in my treatments.
