TREATMENTS

Back Massage

NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system is a bodywork modality that can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for a range of diferent injuries such as lower back or neck pain, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and others.

Sports Massage

It is a type of deep tissue work that is directed at manipulation and massage of the tight muscles. Techniques are used to restore muscle tension and removal of restrictions in order to bring the body to a balanced, pain free-state.

 

It is not only beneficial for athletes and people engaged in sports activities, but for everyone who seeks a relieve from achy and tight muscle. Either caused by injury, poor posture habits or the stress of everyday life.

Kinesiology Taping

Using elastic taping is a rehabilitative technique designed to enhance recovery, speed up rehabilitation proces and increase athletic performance. At our clinic we use RockTape brand for its great adhesive properties.

Indications to use taping are pain, tightness, swelling, bruising, balance insufficiencies or movement pattern dysfunctions. It has great results in supporting recovery from a variety of injuries ranging from ankle sprains, muscle strains, back problems and many others. 

IASTM

IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation)
By using specially designed tools we can influence the nervous system and superficial fascia (fascial layer underneath the skin). This improves gliding properties of tissues allowing for a better movement and faster recovery after an injury or exercises. Those tools can also be used as an assessment technique to identify areas of restriction within the tissues.

Indications to use this treatment modality would be limited or painful movement, motor dysfunction (poor muscle control during movement), lack of tissue glide, swelling in an injured area

Deep tissue massage

Style of massage that uses firm pressure in order to reach deeper layers of muscles and fascia. Does not need to be as intense as sports and remedial work but still allows you to feel relaxed and revived.

Trigger point technique

A trigger point is a hypersensitive region within the muscle tissue presented as a tight band or a nodule. When compressed a TrP can cause a referral pain sensation into distal areas of the body.

TrP therapy is a specified technique used to remove those points from the muscle tissue.

Dry needling

DN is a technique similar to acupuncture and is used in a treatment of trigger points and muscular pain.

DN uses a single disposable thin filiform needle that penetrates the soft tissue. When a needle is inserted into the tissue fascia starts binding to it. By utilising gentle movements of the needle fascial structure can be changed to allow it to release the tightness.
