New Massage Techniques Available!
Pure Escape has been studying some extra techniques and has attended Accredited Practitioner training over the past few months, to be able to offer clients that little bit extra.
Massages with Pure Escape now reach new levels, with pain and tightness being addressed through specialised techniques, not readily available with very many other local therapists.
Both MYOFASCIAL RELEASE and DEEP TISSUE/NEUROMUSCULAR and TRIGGER POINT THERAPY are now available and automatically combined within a massage treatment, after consultation and agreeent with the client. The massage is booked by the time you require (from 30 - 90 minutes), and the techniques used are bespoke to your requirements. There are no surcharges for these advanced techniques, making previously more expensive therapies available to all who need them.
Pure Escape believes that every client deserves to receive the right treatment for their needs, without the barriers of extra costs.
Welcome to a new way of massage.......
Please see the Massage Therapy Page for full price details.
Full details of the new massage styles are outlined below:
Myofascial Release is the new “buzz” word in Massage and Bodywork. Myofascial Release is a powerful method of releasing pain and tension in the body.
This specialised treatment aims to release restrictions within the connective tissue, enabling stuck, hardened and dehydrated areas to become soft and pliable and to re-introduce movement within the body, allowing a complete release all the way to cellular level. Myofascial release is a hands-on massage technique that stretches muscles and applies the necessary pressure to the fascia to relieve tension and, of course, pain. Myofascial release promotes the lengthening of the fascia, so that muscles are encouraged to go back to their original and natural position, function, and length.
Fascia is the soft tissue part of the connective tissue and provides support and protection for most structures within the human body, including muscle (Myofascia). However due to overuse, trauma, infection, inactivity and disease this soft tissue can become restricted. This frequently results in pain, muscle tension and reduced blood flow.
Furthermore, irritation of fascia, or muscle, causes inflammation, and if this continues and becomes chronic it can result in fibrosis, or thickening of the connective tissue. This thickening causes pain and irritation creating a cycle which can result in ischemia (reduced blood flow) and somatic dysfunction. Myofascial techniques aim to break this cycle through a variety of methods acting on multiple stages of the cycle.
Regular myofascial release may help to improve posture counter-act muscle soreness and increase flexibility, and help with a variety of conditions some of which are listed below:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Old injuries may also be helped with myofascial release, as the pliability of scar tissue can be increased in tendons and muscles. Breathing, stress levels, balance, and flexibility can also all be improved with this technique.
Releasing the problematic fascia can sometimes take time. This can be a slow, yet very rewarding, process. Some people can feel disheartened when they do not experience noticeable positive results after 1 or 2 sessions. It is important to remain patient during this process. Tension should be greatly reduced after a few in-depth sessions.
Soreness and aching may occur after a session and drinking lots of water can help to relieve this problem.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE, NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY and TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Deep Tissue Massage is perhaps one of the best and most effective ways to treat pain and injury. It uses firm-pressure designed to release tight layers of muscle and tissue, which usually develops from bad posture, injury or overuse. Restoring movement in the soft tissues alleviates pain, muscle spasm and stress from the problematic area.
What conditions is deep tissue massage used for?
Deep tissue massage is very effective in treating chronic problems such as stiff necks, strained or twisted shoulder muscles, areas of limited mobility, fibromyalgia, postural problems, muscle spasm, and lower back stiffness or pain. It is also highly beneficial in reducing pain and discomfort in conditions such as whiplash, and after a fall or an injury.
Deep tissue massage may help to:
Relax stiff muscles to restore pain free movement
Reduce muscle tension and chronic pain
Un-lock tight muscles
This deeper style of massage may sometimes cause some soreness during, or in the days following the massage. This is simply the muscles releasing stored tension and toxins and will fade within a few days.
