We combine various treatment techniques to optimise results for our clients.

The therapy session is individually tailored utilizing different techniques to maximise function and promote energetically efficient performance. Frequency of treatment depends on the degree of the condition and the rate of muscle repair ability.

Treatment techniques: Remedial Massage:
A paramedical treatment that helps to restore function to painful, injured "soft tissues" (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Therapy may involve the use of various types of Massage, as well as a range of other physical treatments to assist your recovery, such as stretching and strencthening techniques. Return to Top

Sports Massage:
A massage using many passive joint movements, along with kneading, rolling and some tapping. It is used primarily for the serious athlete who trains continuously. It focuses on the muscles relevant to the particular athletic activity. It also includes pre-event, post-event and maintenance techiques that promote greater athletic endurance and performance, decreases chances of injury and reduces recovery time. Return to Top

Therapeutic Massage (swedish):
Manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, Most often performed with oil. Techniques include stroking, vibrations, shaking, effleurage (light long strokes), petrissage (circular manipulation), tapotement (percussive techniques and rocking. Return to Top

Myofascial Release:

Myofascial release refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia (fibrous connective tissue enveloping, separating, or binding together muscles, organs, and other soft structures of the body) and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equilibrioception. Myofascial release usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling. Return to Top

Therapeutic Device G5:
G5® Massage Machines help you to manipulate the soft tissue of the body to produce the desired effects on the nervous and muscular systems, as well as working to enhance local and general circulation of the blood and lymphatic fluids." Applications: 
  • Soft Tissue Injuries - Maintain mobility within the tissue structures of ligaments, tendons, and muscles to reduce atrophy and adherent scars.

  • Muscle Spasms - Relaxes muscles which allows for manual or mechanical manipulation of the area.

  • Pressure Sores - Increases surface circulation which reduces arterial degeneration. Massage assets in reducing the height of bony protrusions by relaxing the muscles surrounding the bone. General Physiotherapy, Inc.'s exclusive Directional-Stroking technology allows you to transport away toxic tissue fluid as you safely treat the perimeter around pressure ulcers.

  • Reduces Edema - Increases circulation by means of the generation of heat; assists in mobilizing edema fluids from an area; restores mobility.

  • Increased Circulation - Higher frequency vibration causes vasal dilation resulting in increased blood flow. This brings nutrients and oxygen to localized areas.

  • Trigger Point Therapy - Relieves the tension build-up or muscle contraction of the hypersensitive area that can evoke pain elsewhere in the body when stimulated.

  • Lymphatic Drainage - Provides detoxification of lymphatic systems by mobilizing lymphatic fluids and draining excess tissue fluids.

  • Continuous Passive Motion - Massage increases range-of-motion by reducing edema and relaxing muscle swelling that can occur during inactivity. Higher frequency vibration releases endorphins, which result in an analgesic effect to an area of treatment. Return to Top
