Massage

We use massage at Garry Trainer Clinic in all of our treatments, for touch is the most instinctive response to pain. Massage has positive effects on the skin, nerves, blood vessels, muscles, lymph and some of the internal organs, however, the most popular application is to induce the sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

As well as using massage with acupuncture and osteopathy to treat back pain, we also offer stand-alone treatments: deep tissue massage, sports massage and neuromuscular back maintenance massage which can be used preventatively to release tension and restore balance to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

BACK MAINTENANCE MASSAGE

60 minute session

This treatment is aimed both at those patients who have experienced acute back pain in the past and also at those who would like to reduce the likelihood of back pain developing in the first place. It is primarily focused on increasing the circulation to areas of tension in order to promote and maintain optimum back health and function, thereby reducing the chances of back pain either developing or recurring.

DEEP TISSUE & PRESSURE POINT MASSAGE FOR RELAXATION

30, 45, 60 or 90 minute session

The 30 minute massage focuses on the neck, shoulder and back and the 60 and 90 minute focuses on the whole body.

This treatment is designed to reach deep portions of the muscles and its purpose is to release individual muscle fibres thereby releasing toxic build-up in the tissues and deeply held patterns of tension.

This effective deep tissue massage increases blood flow, reduces pain and releases pressure on nerves and muscles caused by chronic or injured tissue. It helps to release intense knots of muscle tension and induce a deep feeling of relaxation and well-being.

AYURVEDIC MASSAGE

30, 45, 60 or 90 minute session

The philosophy in Ayurveda, the ancient health system of India, is being balanced and in tune with body, mind and soul. The aim of Abhyanga is to restore energy, nourish the nervous system and calm the mind. The application of warm sesame oil nurtures and rejuvenates. Abhyanga’s are the perfect way to ease of stress and strain of a hectic life style, the gentle technique moves deep into the body to allow full relaxation.

Each massage can be used as a classic treatment protocol in conjunction with a health consultation or only for giving your mind and body some recharge time.

MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD)

30, 45, 60 or 90 minute session

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very moderate style of massage based on specific method like rhythmic pumping, circular and spiral manipulation, which help the lymph fluid to run more efficiently around the body.

As a key treatment to improve the immune system protecting us from disease, MLD is also a great therapy to prevent many chronic conditions like join and muscular pain, cellulite, fluid retention (e.g. due to pregnancy), digestive conditions and stress.

MLD is also a significant remedy for acute conditions like post plastic surgery, post-operative inflammations and can helps significantly the control of lymphedema after prostate or breast cancer.

Finally, MLD is deeply relaxing and strongly recommended during Detox period to improve the capacity of the body’s lymphatic system to purify from the inside out.

The main role of the lymphatic system includes:

  • Absorbs and transports fatty acids from the digestive system.
  • Transports antigen cells and white blood cells
  • Filters out body toxin
  • The lymphatic system is a key mechanism to our immune system.
