Manual therapy can involve, assisted stretches, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, mobilisations of the joints & tissue. Manual Therapy is used for the purpose of modulating pain, increasing movement, inducing relaxation, reducing inflammation, improving contractile & non contractile tissue repair, facilitating movement & improving function.
I went here following learning an important lesson in life that a 34yr old man should not go to a trampoline park! I've been in a lot of pain and nothing was working. A lovely physio called Gill soon went to work on my back and finished the session with some needling and after just 1 session I felt like a new man. Great service and given with a smile and really relaxing environment. Very much looking forward to my next session.
