Soft Tissue Therapy combines many manual therapy techniques (eg. Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Technique and Muscle Energy Techniques) giving multiple tools to address issues in the soft tissues of the body (muscle, tendon & ligaments).
Rather than simply giving a general massage, Soft Tissue Therapy is focused upon searching for the root causes of our postural issues, to uncover where we are prone to injury. In this respect, Soft Tissue Therapy is a great tool for all those involved in demanding physical practices (dance, circus, athletes and those in the fitness industries; particularly as a preventative treatment, lowering risk of injury.)
This particular approach is also shown to offer an increased rate of recover from injury, and is highly recommended as a method, or a supplement to, rehabilitation from injuries or post surgery.
For those of us in highly stressful jobs, or occupation that involves physical labour, Soft Tissue therapy can also be a great way of treating those minor aches and pains that can limit us.
