Movement and postural assessment
To optimise physical performance it is important to identify faulty movement patterns to prevent compensation and overloading to muscles and joints that could result in injury.
Functional, active, passive and resisted tests are used to identify stresses, which our bodies are subjected to from general movements and activities. A movement and postural assessment takes up to 30 minutes, allowing the therapist to determine a structured, personalised treatment plan – this is emailed to you approximately three days after your appointment.
Treatment plans are made in agreement with you and are treated on a case-to-case basis, typically aimed around five to ten sessions before leading into ‘maintenance massage.’ They include a complimentary rehabilitation tool such as a stretch band or a massage ball and 10% off any rehabilitation products purchased through your Therapist during the treatment plan period. All sports taping or kinesiotaping that is needed during the sessions is included and pre-paid treatment plans come with a 15% discount off the overall price.
Treatments themselves may include remedial massage and techniques like Trigger Point release, active or passive and dynamic stretches, myofascial release techniques and/or suction cupping, active or passive mobilisation of joints, the use of specific warming balms, sports or kinesio taping and reassessment to maintain focus on the goals set initially.

Movement and postural assessment enhances massage efficacy.
Our clients really enjoy the things they learn about their body or their movement patterns and how it empowers them to take better care of themselves when we aren’t around. They often tell us how useful and interesting it is to see a marked improvement in Range of Motion for example, after post-treatment reassessment because although they might feel improvements, quantifying it can somehow make it feel more significant.
