Massage and Alternative Therapies
At FMK Physiotherapy & Health, we understand that each individual's path to healing is unique. That's why we offer a range of therapeutic treatments beyond traditional physiotherapy. Our additional therapies are designed to complement and enhance your overall well-being, providing you with a holistic approach to healing and recovery. Explore the following therapies we offer:
Dry needling is a highly effective technique used to relieve muscle pain and improve joint mobility. It involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific trigger points or tight bands of muscle. By targeting these areas, dry needling helps release muscle tension, reduce pain, and promote natural healing responses in the body. Our skilled therapists will assess your condition and incorporate dry needling into your treatment plan as appropriate.
Sports massage is a specialised therapy aimed at athletes and individuals engaged in physical activities. It focuses on optimising performance, preventing injuries, and aiding in recovery. Our qualified therapists employ various techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, and deep tissue massage to enhance circulation, reduce muscle tension, and promote relaxation. Whether you're a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, sports massage can help you achieve your physical goals.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic technique that targets deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. It is particularly beneficial for chronic pain, postural issues, and muscle imbalances. Our skilled therapists apply firm pressure and slow strokes to reach the underlying tissues, releasing tension and promoting healing. Deep tissue massage can help alleviate chronic pain, improve flexibility, and restore balance to your body.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage combines the benefits of massage therapy with the soothing warmth of smooth, heated stones. This therapy involves placing heated stones on specific points of your body while our therapists perform gentle strokes with their hands. The heat from the stones helps to relax muscles, enhance blood flow, and alleviate tension. Indulge in the tranquil experience of hot stone massage, which provides deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
Cupping therapy is an ancient healing practice that involves placing special cups on the skin to create a suction effect. This therapy has been used for centuries to promote healing, reduce pain, and improve blood circulation. At FMK Physiotherapy & Health, we offer cupping therapy as an additional treatment option to support your overall well-being.
During a cupping session, cups are placed on specific areas of your body. The cups create a vacuum seal, drawing your skin and underlying tissues upward. This gentle suction stimulates blood flow, relaxes muscles, and helps to release toxins and stagnation from the body.
Cupping therapy can be beneficial for various conditions, including muscle tension, chronic pain, respiratory problems, and stress-related ailments. It can also complement your physiotherapy treatment by enhancing circulation and promoting faster recovery.
At FMK Physiotherapy & Health, we are committed to providing you with personalised care and an array of therapeutic options to suit your needs. Our dedicated therapists will work closely with you to understand your goals and tailor a treatment plan that incorporates these other therapies alongside physiotherapy/sports therapy. Experience the difference these therapies can make in your overall well-being.
