It’s a treatment performed by therapists with advanced training (Level 5 NVQ or equivalent) for helping muscles recover and heal, as well as helping with ongoing health conditions or recent injury. It involves soft tissue therapy - which targets parts of the body like muscles, tendons and ligaments.
It’s also a handy treatment to book ahead of sporting events to reduce the risk of injury.
This treatment can help with recovery from a number of conditions, like pulled muscles or sprains. It can also soothe twinges and strain in common places, like the rotator cuff or achilles tendon.
For more serious injuries, it's always worth seeing a doctor or physiotherapist first. That includes torn muscles, torn ligaments and broken bones.
Therapists use a number of techniques for soft tissue therapy:
Soft tissue release (STR) restores strength in muscles; muscle energy techniques (METs) help free up your range of motion; and neuromuscular techniques (NMT) which includes trigger point therapy for pain relief and restoring function.
To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
