Introduction

What Is Clinical And Sports Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a general term for the manual treatment of the soft tissues of the body.  This includes:  skin, fascia, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. While general massage has long been popular to promote relaxation and decrease muscle tension, clinical massage therapists have an extensive training background in anatomy, physiology and assessment of underlying causes.

The objective and treatment plan of a clinical massage therapist is directed towards improving soft tissue and joint health to help you return to an improved state of muscular balance and function.  This is achieved through the use of a broader range of treatment techniques which aim to produce these more long-term results.

Massage therapy is a great complementary therapy to other treatments by healthcare professionals such as Physiotherapy and Osteopathy and can expedite your recovery so you can enjoy a pain-free, happy, healthy, and active lifestyle!

Benefits Of Clinical And Sports Massage Therapy

Research has shown that massage:

  • Increases circulation of the blood and lymphatic systems
  • Reduces muscle tension
  • Reduces stress hormones (cortisol) and improves endorphin levels

Which in turn:

  • Improves nutrition to the muscles
  • Reduces pain
  • Increases range of motion through balancing muscle tone/length and joint mobility
  • Reduces stress response – decreases the sympathetic response, the “fight or flight” mode, and allows the parasympathetic system, “rest, digest and heal”, to be activated
  • Calms the nervous system – reduces stress, anxiety and improves quality of sleep

Clinical Massage Therapy

Who Can Benefit From Clinical Massage Therapy?

Anyone! Clinical massage therapy is not only beneficial to help you return to optimal health from an injury or conditions of pain or dysfunction, it is also beneficial as part of a general wellness and maintenance plan or simply for relaxation massage.  

As a result of daily stressors, poor posture, injuries or surgeries, our bodies develop postural changes and “holding patterns” through restrictions and adaptive shortening.  Over time, the impact on the body may result in improper/altered biomechanics and compensatory movement patterns which can lead to pain, overuse syndromes and injury.  A clinical massage therapist can identify these contributing factors and help restore you to pain-free and optimal function while helping you understand the underlying cause to your pain and dysfunction.

If you are seeing us for the first time with an existing pain or condition, the initial goal is to address and treat your area of concern through rehabilitative modalities.  As we progress, we work towards prevention of pain and injury through education, so that we can avoid crisis management, and not only start addressing and treating something once it becomes problematic.  

As part of a general maintenance programme, we work on enhancing any areas of concern, through treatments that support and encourage postural alignment and promote optimal movement patterns. Whether it’s for remedial treatment or for preventative care, we look forward to getting you back to enjoying your activities in good form and free from pain!

Sports Massage Therapy

The Benefits Of Sports Massage For The Athlete – From The Weekend Warrior To The Professional Athlete

Massage therapy for sport has many applications to enhance athletic performance and fitness training. From pre and post event massage, to maintenance while in training, various techniques have their purpose. Some modalities stimulate the muscles and prepare them for a sporting event, while others help prevent restrictions and adhesions and helps flush out metabolic waste products post-event.

If an injury is being treated, a variety of techniques may be used, depending on the stage of healing – acute, subacute or chronic – to promote healing and assist in recovery. Some goals for maintenance are to promote a healthy environment for the tissue through good circulation, minimize scar tissue and restrictions, and help maintain proper movement patterns.

What you can get out of sports massage:

  • Improves the way the body maintains muscles and tendons
  • Helps athlete’s muscles recover faster and they have fewer injuries
  • By kneading the tissues, more blood and nutrients will move through the system while also removing toxins such as normal cell waste products and inflammation
  • This increase in circulation reduces swelling and means that injuries/micro-tearing in muscles heal faster
  • Muscle and tendons are gently stretched, increasing their flexibility – an essential for optimum performance and injury prevention
  • Reduction of pain is another key for athletes with intense training schedules
  • The right massage therapy program right before competition can increase the quality of performance, endurance and prevents injuries

Pregnancy Therapy

The Benefits of Pregnancy Massage Therapy?

Our massage therapists have specialised training in the area of pregnancy massage. Please note that massage during the first trimester is not recommended. However, ante natal massage can be safely carried out after 12 weeks gestation and it is a hugely beneficial treatment to both mother and baby throughout the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, and into the post natal period.

Focusing on treating mums to be and new mothers, ante and post natal massage is specially designed to help alleviate many of the common symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy, such as muscle tension, leg cramping, sciatic pain, oedema, water retention and lower back pain.

Massage not only helps with the physical discomforts that can accompany pregnancy, it may also help with the emotional stress caused by changing hormone levels and impending lifestyle changes. Massage encourages relaxation, an increase in circulation, and therefore a better supply of nutrients delivered to the baby.     

Depending on your preference, treatments may either be carried out on a special pregnancy cushion or in a side lying position. As deep tissue massage is contraindicated throughout pregnancy, a light to medium pressure is used. Sessions typically last either 60 or 90 minutes.

    FAQ List

    What To Expect During A Massage At Prohealth Posture Plus?
    • An accurate health history form is important to ensure that it is safe for you to receive a massage treatment.  Please fill out the Massage Health History Intake Form which will be sent to you prior to your appointment and send it back to the clinic before you attend the session.
    • The therapist will then go through a thorough assessment of your symptoms and medical history to ensure that you do not have any contraindications for Massage Therapy.
    • Together a treatment plan will be discussed, including areas to be treated and why. You will have an opportunity to ask questions before giving consent to the proposed treatment plan.  You may withdraw consent to treatment at any time during the session.
    • When on the massage table, you will always be covered by a sheet.  Only areas being treated will be exposed while the rest of your body remains properly draped.
    • Please choose to undress to your level of comfort. You may choose to remain clothed or wear a sports bra and loose fitting shorts. We provide t-shirts and shorts at the clinic if needed.
    • Please inform your therapist of any allergies you may have to lotion or oils that may be used during the session and this information will be highlighted on your chart for future reference.
    • At the end of the treatment, your therapist will discuss more specific observations and provide some remedial exercise and self-care, as well as discuss the future treatment plan for follow up sessions
    What Are The Do’s and Don’ts Post Treatment?
    • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after a treatment in order to allow the muscles and systems to respond to the treatment and adapt to their “new” alignment.  High intensity exercise may pull the tissue back to its old patterns or it may induce new strain patterns.
    • Light exercise is good – easy walking, gentle stretching or swimming as this helps reactivate muscles in their newly lengthened position and help flush out the metabolic waste.
    • Staying hydrated helps flush away toxins and metabolic waste that have been released.  Drink water to avoid headaches and reduce post treatment soreness.
    • Epsom salts bath helps to flush out metabolic waste and continue releasing muscle tension.
    What Are The Side Effects Of Massage?

    While massage can leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and or invigorated, it can also have some less pleasant side effects. There are many factors related to how we each respond to treatment. Here are some possible side effects you may experience:

    • Light exercise is good – easy walking, gentle stretching or swimming as this helps reactivate muscles in their newly lengthened position and help flush out the metabolic waste.
    • Staying hydrated helps flush away toxins and metabolic waste that have been released.  Drink water to avoid headaches and reduce post treatment soreness.
    • Epsom salts bath helps to flush out metabolic waste and continue releasing muscle tension.

    Your therapist encourages your feedback before, during and after your session so that they can make adjustments to the techniques they use and “fine tune” your treatment plan.

    What Are The Precautions To Massage?

    While massage therapy is considered safe for most people, it may not be appropriate if you have certain conditions. If you are experiencing any of the following conditions, please postpone your visit and/or consult with your physician if it is safe for you to proceed with massage therapy.

    • Fever, flu, cold symptoms
    • Open wounds, bruises, burns, rashes or areas of weak skin
    • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or blood clots
    • Bleeding disorder or taking blood thinners
    • Fractures that are not fully healed
    • Severe Osteoporosis
    • A very low platelet count (thrombocytopenia)
