Scar Tissue and Adhesions
Help is at hand! We have some wonderful therapeutic treatments to ease the discomfort of physical and emotional scars. Physical examples might be adhesions from breast removal, fractures, whiplash, surgical adhesions such as from breast removal or carpal tunnel, whilst emotional scars might be separation, bereavement, post traumatic stress, work related stress, or even loss of a much loved pet.
Muscle Activation Therapy
This therapy is perfect for those who make high demands on their body, such as Crossfit fans army personnel and professional sports people, and also people beginning to be aware of their age.
We use Muscle Activation to seek to identify and correct muscular imbalances that cause the type of dysfunctional postures and patterns that lead to vulnerability of repeated injuries, intransigent pain and utter exhaustion. The correction of these patterns can rediscover and reinstate the body’s muscular power and strong posture.
For the rest of us, it is often the secret ingredient to full recovery for stubborn muscular problems that other medical practitioners have not managed to attain, such as weakness in the legs, nagging back pain, headaches and carpal tunnel or other repetitive strain injuries and even utter exhaustion. It is certainly a safer option, with all their limitations, risks and drawbacks, than surgery, metal plates, painkillers, or premature old age.
The real connoisseurs of massage will be familiar with this incredibly effective and powerfully reparative form of massage for pain, pathology and acute or chronic injury. Jing Level 6 Professional Clinical and Sports Massage training represents the highest and most extensive form of bodywork training available in the UK and probably Europe. If you are in pain, why waste your time and money for anything less? We can use this high level of knowledge and experience in combination with all the other therapies offered at Walking On Air.
