Have you ever booked a Remedial Massage for a specific ailment like a sore lower back or leg. Told your therapist about it and then the therapist has gone about the massage like it is a rehearsed routine? That is something you will NOT get at Total Performance Centre. Mick listens to what your problem is and uses all his knowledge to try to help you the best he knows how.
You may come in for a sore lower back and find you get your neck worked on or doing some specific strength exercises that you may not initially see the significance of. But everything done during your appointment will be about helping with the pain problem you are having. For instance if you are having shoulder impingement issues the pain may be in the front or side of the shoulder. But the problem is in the back of the shoulder. So we may do some massage release work on the rear of the shoulder and you may then get some specific strength work for the front muscles in the shoulder.
Because we believe that if you take tension out of one side of the joint you need to replace it on the other side of the joint otherwise the original problem will return.
Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension and tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.
Quanta Bio-Resonance Frequency Therapy
What does Bio-resonance Frequency do?
Bio-Resonance Frequency Therapy consists of thin circular patches applied directly to the skin. They send electrical frequencies through the electro molecules in the body. The nervous system picks up these frequencies, starting a self-healing and self-regulating process. By improving the signalling directly at the cellular level, without the use of chemicals or machines, the results are not only fast, they are without side effects.
If a weak frequency can be restored, the body gets back the ability to self heal.
Protocol does not contradict any medical treatment or have any known side effects. Detox symptoms may occur as the added frequencies cleanses the cells from toxins and inflammation.
Wearable patches releasing Frequencies
Patches support the body’s ability to self-repair and produce antioxidants
The Quanta patches are designed to be apply directly on the skin, where the frequency stays in the body for up to 72 hours, Therefore the effect is very powerful as impact on the cells is constant.
The therapist can change the patches every 3 - 5 days to new ones and keep a constant impact for as long as it is needed without interruptions in the treatment.
Instrument assisted soft tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is a popular treatment for myofascial restriction. IASTM uses specially designed instruments to provide a mobilising effect to myofascial adhesions. There are several IASTM tools and techniques are available through the Remedial Massage world. At Total Performance Centre we use the Rock-tape Rock Blades methodology as it seems to have more science behind it and tends to leave less of the big bruise looks that other techniques tend to leave. Other names you may know this treatment as is Gua Sha or Graston Technique.
Trigger Point Therapy:
Trigger points, also known as trigger sites or muscle knots, are described as hyper-irritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibres. Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
The Kinesio Taping Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. The first technique gives the practitioner the opportunity to actually give support while maintaining full range of motion.
