Massage & Physical Therapy
@ Essence Spa and Sanovitae Health & Leisure
Physical Therapy is an effective and safe form of treatment for many musculoskeletal issues. It involves a combination of assessment and specific techniques. It is a very ‘Hands-on’ approach to successfully identifying and treating many conditions that affect so many members of the population. The aim is to restore pain free function, while at all times maintaining a client-centred approach through continuous feedback and monitoring.
Massage helps facilitate the body’s own healing and recovery process.
An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment). Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and, thus, partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury. It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.
