Kirsten uses remedial massage techniques to soften and release both connective tissue and muscle, whilst combining this with trigger point therapy to specifically treat problem areas. Kirsten makes sure surrounding muscles, joints, tendons, and connective tissue that may have been compensating are also assessed and treated. Remedial massage techniques include both soft and deep massage which are combined with stretching and specific pressure in areas that will aid in release of tension through muscle fibres (trigger point therapy). When muscles are released and connective tissue softens this allows tendons and joints to move more freely as well as releasing the strain on structural parts of the body such as the pelvis, spine, and ribs. These techniques are very effective in decreasing discomfort, improving movement, circulation, and general well being. Remedial massage can also be an effective part of a treatment plan if you're seeing a chiropractor, osteopath or physiotherapist.
