Massage Therapy

What is massage therapy?

Massage  is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a  curative effect. Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage to promote  circulation and blood flow and bring about healing effects: physical and  psychological changes for general well-being.

What does it involve?

The system of massage treatment  involves the therapist using their hands to apply pressure on your body.  Therapists use various techniques to work on the body: stroking and gliding  (effleurage), kneading the soft tissues (petrissage), or what is termed  ‘percussion’ (tapotement).

Physiotherapy and massage

Massage therapy is an effective treatment technique. At Fine Form Physiotherapy Ryde, massage therapy is incorporated into most of our treatment sessions. We believe it is extremely important to adopt this hands on approach to gain a better understanding of the muscles and surrounding soft tissues.

We use massage therapy in conjunction with manipulative therapy and exercise rehabilitiation, to provide an overall holistic approach to health care.
