Combination Treatment

The Benefits of Combination Therapies

The benefits of a combination of Acupuncture ,Kinesiology and massage therapy can be felt in many ways. For example if you were to have deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy in an attempt to treat a sports injury or any sort of musculoskeletal pain, you would be likely to feel the benefits almost immediately as your range of motion is improved and movements become freer and easier to do. Of course, the other obvious benefit is the pain relief experienced in the problem area!

This sort of therapy can be specific to the affected area or a general wellbeing boost.  You don’t have to tolerate too much discomfort for it to be effective your body will respond according to its priority need, so be sure to communicate with your massage therapist your priority need and your secondary pains or discomforts.

Kinesiology ( Structural) is basically a muscle testing technique designed to identify muscles not performing their specific duty in the overall functioning of your skeletal system and rectifying that underlying weakness. This will , through recruitment of adjacent muscles that are not designed to do the recruiting muscle's task, cause tightness and discomfort in the recruited muscles over time.

Acupuncture, a centuries old method of inserting extremely fine needles into the energy meridians of the body can dissipate those areas of tightness and discomfort bought about by muscle recruitment.

Remedial massage , is also very effective at treating injuries, however it entails a more complete massage that works with all of the muscles in the body.

This type of massage is successful in the treatment of many ailments including neck and back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tension headaches and countless other problems that our bodies encounter as a result of our daily lives, including the number one, ever present affliction, stress!

Of course, other systems in our bodies benefit from massage therapy also, namely the circulatory and lymphatic systems. With the muscle fibres now able to allow new, oxygenated blood to enter and flush out the toxins that have built up, the immune system is strengthened, energy levels improve and an overall feeling of wellbeing is restored.

Structural therapies work within the framework of the body to help ensure that freedom of movement is kept or regained, and that a person has the optimum mobility levels and quality of life.

All structural therapies aim to improve the way that the body moves, so that movement becomes easier, posture is improved, and pain is minimised or eradicated altogether. The actual structure or framework of the body is being worked upon. As well as working on the body, structural therapies also work on the mind, as they understand that the body and the mind work together.

Undergoing treatment with a structural therapy is beneficial as movement, balance and coordination are all improved. In fact, the key benefit of a structural therapy is the regaining of the freedom of movement. Movement may have been previously restricted due to stress, tension in the body, injuries, illnesses, or incorrect body posture or movement. Structural therapies aim to track down the source of restriction or pain and eliminate it.
