This therapy can remove the accumulation of general aches and pains accepted as normal, due to a gradual build-up of waste products through overuse. These conditions can develop from everydate repetitive movements as well as from sporting activities.
This form of treatment monitors and relieves muscular tensions to help avoid possible injury. It can also explore the soft tissues more thoroughly than other therapies, thus the problem area can be assessed and treated very accurately.
