Sports Massage

Unlike Remedial Massage, which focuses on repairing muscles and tendons that have been damaged, Sports massage is a form of treatment that considers not just the physiology and anatomy of the human body, but also the physical demands placed upon the body by a sporting activity of event.

It’s a form of massage designed to enhance the body’s condition for peak athletic performance, either pre-event, or post event. When muscle is worked during a sporting activity, muscle contracts. Sports massage is designed to return muscle to its elongated, resting length, avoiding tender and tight muscle fatigue following events or training.

Ultrasound Heat Therapy

Anika uses Ultrasound technology to assist her with treatment of soft and hard tissue injury and repair. It is also used for advanced pain relief using the sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. The powerfully penetrating, short Ultrasound waves, generate deep heat within body tissues for the treatment of selected medical conditions such as pain, muscle spasms, and joint contractures.

Ultrasound is a very effective way to reduce deep and painful inflammation, joint restriction and swelling. Unlike electrical modalities, Ultrasound uses deeply penetrating and soothing sound waves that cause gentle, microscopic vibration to loosen scarred and tangled muscle, tendon and ligament fibres. Therapeutic ultrasound promotes joint mobility and tendon extensibility. It also helps to soften scar tissue.

Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling is an invasive procedure in which a fine filament needle is inserted into the skin and muscle, directly at a myofascial trigger point. Dry Needling relaxes contracted muscles by way of the nervous system sending the appropriate feedback to the muscle, to inhibit or stop it’s spasm.

There is a difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture. Acupuncture is used to treat general health, whereas Dry Needling is used to treat specific muscle issues such as knots, tension, injury and trigger points. Trigger Point dry needling can be used as an isolated treatment or added into your remedial treatment.

Pregnancy Massage

Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension. Massage and pregnancy have often received ambivalent responses from the health community regarding the safety and purpose of massage during pregnancy. Modern investigation and research is proving that prenatal massage therapy can be a very instrumental ingredient in women’s prenatal care and should be given careful consideration. Anika is a registered nurse with experience in midwifery nursing, and understands the special needs of the pregnant woman and her pregnancy aches and pains.

Facial Massage

A facial massage is a wonderfully pleasant and relaxing experience. It creates a fresh, stress free and rejuvenated sense of well being.

Gentle or firmer massage strokes, whatever your preference of pressure, bringing nutrient filled circulation to the facial tissue and skin.

Organic facial grapeseed oil or organic Jojoba oil are used for this delicious treatment. (depending on your skin type).

And as they say “a facial massage a day, keeps the plastic surgeon away”.
