Massage Wisdom Therapy

Shiatsu practice is based on the oriental medical principle that mind and body is regulated by energy flowing along a network of meridians. According to this principle, the energy responsible for the functioning of mind and body flows through these meridians and a person becomes unwell once this natural flow of energy is disturbed. If this natural flow is restored, then the natural healing power of the body returns the person to good health. Climate, toxins in the environment or the body, emotional factors, lifestyle, stress or physical trauma may be the cause of these disruptions. These disturbances follow well known patterns and can be corrected during shiatsu by applying pressure along the meridians with an emphasis at relevant pressure points. Shiatsu balances energy and the autonomic nervous system

Trigger Point Therapy Trigger points are areas of hyperirritability within soft tissue that develop when a muscle is injured or overworked. A tight or painful muscle can be the result of an active trigger point. Trigger points caused by trauma create changes in the tissues chemical balance, irritating the sensory systems. Local tenderness and referred pain, tingling, numbness, burning or itching are characteristic symptoms of a trigger point.

Sports and remedial massage The goal of sports and remedial massage is the correction of dysfunctional movement and posture as well as the rehabilitation from injury whether from playing sports or from daily activities. Sports massage can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or post-event. Sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and helps athletes to compete at their best.
