Massage for Health and Wellness

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSIs)

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is used to describe gradual pain (mild to severe) brought about by repetitive movement and overuse causing inflammation and damage to the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves) of the area.  RSI is usually caused by repetitive activities or from poor posture and usually occurs when the tissues have not been given adequate time to rest and heal.  

Common RSIs

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Golfers Elbow, Plantar Fasciitis, Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy, De Quervain Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome etc

Bursitis

When the fluid filled sacs (bursa) that cushion your joints become inflamed.  These tend to occur in the joints of greatest use such as hip, knee, shoulder and elbow. Bursitis may be a result of injury, repetitive pressure and overuse of a joint and poor posture.

Plantar Fasciitis

Inflammation or damage to the thick tissue on the sole of your foot, the plantar fascia.  Numerous factors including lifestyle can contribute to this condition. 

How can massage and myofascial therapy help?

Recovering and managing RSIs, Bursitis, Plantar Fasciitis or Heel Pain can be frustrating and timely.  We work with your muscles and your fascia using gentle ‘hands-on’ techniques combined with movement therapies to aid in your healing.   

We tailor a treatment program specifically designed to bring movement, alignment and balance back into the area.  This is combined with home exercises designed to complement the hands-on therapy, bring awareness of your movements and aid your recovery.
