Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage is a very gentle form of massage therapy that stimulates the body’s lymphatic system. The lymphatic system produces special white blood cells, generates antibodies and filters blood by removing waste products. This gentle body treatment relaxes the nervous system and through the stimulation of lymph nodes, aids detoxification.

Cupping / Myofascial Decompression

MFD works in the decompression of adhesions; reducing inhibition of fluids and nutrient exchange. It is effective in decreasing stiffness and pain, improving tissue health and increasing mobility.

We use MFD clinically to:

  • Decrease mechanical connective tissue changes following inflammation or trauma
  • Decrease trigger Points (presence of hypersensitive, tender tissue within the muscle belly)
  • Decrease myofascial dysfunction, scar adhesions, scar tissue
  • Decrease myofascial syndromes; i.e. faulty patterning due to hypertonic muscles

Dry Needling

Dry Needling involves placing a fine acupuncture needle into the trigger point of a muscle. The aim of Dry Needling is to elicit a twitch response which causes the muscle to contract slightly and then release, thereby relieving the pain the trigger point was causing.

Does it hurt?

When a needle is inserted into a healthy muscle there is usually very little discomfort. In the case of tight muscles and those with active trigger points, there may be a little sting or feeling of a cramp which is the twitch response. Sometimes the pain that brought you to the clinic in the first place is reproduced by the needling. This is a good sign that your therapist has located the source of your pain and is treating it effectively by deactivating the trigger point and restoring normal length and function to the muscle.

Dry Needling can generally help to break down tight muscle, trigger points and sources of pain for patients quickly and easily. It is sometimes quicker and less painful than massage or cupping.

Consider dry needling if you suffer from:

  • any form of muscular tension
  • any pain that travels
  • pain in your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, upper back, lower back, buttocks, hips, hamstrings, quads, calves or feet.
