Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues for the purpose of normalizing those tissues. It is one of the oldest medical practice in history. It has long been proven to relax the body, but there are several conditions that benefit from this treatment.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is soft tissue manipulation where the practitioner kneads and rubs various muscle groups to relax them. Throughout a massage, you will feel your physiotherapist applying pressure to various areas and stretching others.

The goal of massage therapy is to promote movement in various parts of your body. It can be used to treat conditions that are physical, chemical, or emotional.

Massage therapy at Perth Wellness Centre can be one of several different techniques. It can effectively relieve pain, promote relaxation and diminish anxiety, and directly treat certain myofascial conditions.

Types of Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage consists of your physiotherapist applying firm pressure to get through to the deepest layers of muscle. It is especially effective with chronic aches and pain, stiff necks and upper back issues, low back pain, tightness in leg muscles, and sore shoulders.

Scar Tissue Massage can decrease the buildup of scar tissue. It can also make scars a little less noticeable. The physiotherapist will work to massage the area where the injured tissue is in an effort to decrease the scar tissue and allow the injury to heal.

Swedish Massage is probably the most well known and one of the most popular types of massage. It provides you with a relaxation of your entire body. It is much gentler than deep tissue massage and is especially effective in the reduction of stress and injury recovery.

Sports Massage is an integral part of helping athletes heal from their injuries. The sports massage will help relieve pain and promote relaxation in addition to treating certain myofascial conditions.

Trigger Point Therapy is a type of massage where the physiotherapist applies direct pressure on the trigger points, or those areas of muscle that are knotted and most tender. This type of massage reduces the tension in the muscles which allows relief of the associated pain.

How Can Massage Therapy Help?

Perth Wellness Physiotherapists are highly trained to diagnose and treat many different conditions. They work directly with the massage therapists to provide you with the treatment that you need to heal.

Our physiotherapists have extensive training in the form and function of human movement. This includes soft tissue manipulation and how it affects human anatomy. Their training is so extensive, they can effectively help screen for other more serious conditions and make any necessary recommendations to the therapist.
