Massage Treatments

When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Massage Therapy provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Massage therapy treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

At DBA Fitness Edge our massage therapy treatments use several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage, and to support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms.

Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release Therapy uses a gentle blend of stretching and massage to promote healing, release and pain relief. It releases disruptions in the fascial network that links every organ and tissue in the body with every other part. The release of tension once the body has responded to the therapy allows more functional flexibility and mobility of the muscles, fascia and associated structures.

Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points, also known as myofascial trigger points, are areas of hyper-irritability in the soft tissue structure. Trigger points are manifested as small contraction knots in the muscles, that control the state of contraction and active ones may cause muscle spasm and referred pain. Treatment consists of physical therapy, manipulation and stretching. 

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibres. It helps to loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. It is both corrective and therapeutic. It is beneficial for many physical problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain. 

Active Release Technique (ART)
ART is a soft tissue treatment that focuses on relieving tissue tension by the removal of fibrosis or adhesions that can develop in tissues from overloading due to repetitive use. It is used to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART is designed to restore unimpeded motion to soft tissue, release entrapped nerves and lymphatics, and re-establish optimal texture, resilience and function of soft tissues.

Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy is usually part of acupuncture or body work treatment. It involves heating the air inside a glass cup, the cup is then quickly placed on the skin, and the resulting vacuum pulls the skin part of the way into the cup. Cupping moves or stimulates the body's natural energy — also called qi. It is also used to help treat pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling.

Sports Massage
Sports Massage is designed for athletes, but is useful for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range-of-motion issues. Sports massage emphasises prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. The massage therapist concentrates on a specific problem area using basic massage strokes that stimulate circulation of blood and lymph fluids, breaks down knots in the muscles and increases the range of motion. 

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
PNF involves a combination of active or passive stretching, and isometric contractions to encourage flexibility and coordination throughout the limb's entire range of motion. The science is simple, just not easy. Shorten the tissue, apply a contact tension and lengthen the tissue, actively or passively to make it slide relative to the adjacent tissue. The skilled, trained therapist assesses texture, tension and movement of different tissue layers and provides treatment for improvement.
