Massage therapy refers to the manipulation of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and connective tissues of the body.
It also allows for the removal of toxins, such as lactic acid, which tends to store in our muscles and tendons. Without treatment, these chemicals can lead to dysfunction and cause the associated muscles to constrict.
The proven benefits of remedial massage therapy include:
- Reduced muscle tension
- Increase lymphatic flow
- Increase muscle length
- Reduce swelling
- Reduce anxiety
- Decrease Blood pressure
- Reduce pain
- Prevent injuries
Our massage therapists offer and specialise in deep tissue, trigger point therapy and sports massage. A massage may also include the use of Active Release Techniques and/or Myofascial Dry Needling, if required. If you are unsure of the type of massage you require, your therapist will recommend a suitable option and use a variety of techniques to ensure you receive the best possible treatment.
At 4D Health and Performance we offer 30 min, 45 min and one hour treatments. If you wish for a longer session, please request this when scheduling your appointment.
