"I thought all remedial massage therapists did the same thing. What's so special about your treatment?"
Welcome to my website, which I hope will give you an insight into the work I do and the benefits of my own unique style of Remedial Massage. I've worked as a Massage Therapist in Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula for over ten years, and in that time I've developed some very interesting and effective techniques to help get you back to your normal-self quickly and safely.
You may not know that all your muscles and organs rely on a smooth, steady flow of energy from your nervous system. This nervous energy comes from the nerves of your spine (See picture on right). It's a bit like a nice even flow of electricity to a light globe, which in turn gives off a nice even glow of light. When muscles "spasm" or tighten up, it's usually because this flow of energy is being interrupted. It's like the light globe flickering on and off, so that the muscles or organs that rely on that energy flow can't function properly. Because spinal nerves service different areas of your body, the pain you feel in your shoulder might not really be a shoulder problem. It could be referred pain from your back!
Spasmed muscles cause a few of other interesting things to happen too. One is, the flow of blood and other nutrients to that muscle (and maybe it group) is restricted, which compounds the problem. Also, your skeleton is stressed, and can be pulled out of symmetry, because your muscles attach to it. This can contribute to your already restricted range of motion. Thirdly of course, you feel pain; your body's way of letting you know something's wrong.
Part of my job is to help you find out what's really going wrong, and what's actually causing your muscles to be tight and sore, and then to try to resolve that, so that you're muscle function can be restored to normal. That translates to pain relief, improved flexibility and a feeling of real well-being. Just what you need if you suffer from chronic pain, or even acute pain that can slow you down and restrict your movement.
My unique style of treatment has proven over and over to effectively coax muscles back to their normal state and relieve muscular aches and pains. These techniques quickly restore stability to the nervous energy that services your muscles and organs, so that they can function normally again.
If you're not a sports person, regardless of your age, you'll find my therapy can help relieve your pain and make you feel a lot better generally. Apart from my special techniques, massage is a very natural and effective way to help your body's immune system function more efficiently.
If you are a sports person, you already know what a good remedial massage can do to improve your performance. I can make sure your muscles are evenly balanced so they're all sharing the load evenly, the way they were designed to, so you'll be able to perform at your very best.
Many aches and pains are simply your body's way of letting you know it needs attention, and being aligned muscularly is more than half the battle. Many muscular problems are the result of poor musculo-skeletal alignment. My alignment techniques have proven effective across all age groups, from school aged children to the very old aged.
So, if you suffer from chronic or acute pain, I'm sure I'm able to help you. Why not call now to arrange an appointment?
