Remedial massage treatments are targeted and specific to your needs. Focusing on soft tissue injury, post-operative recovery, chronic pain, neck pain, headaches and stress, muscular & fascial imbalance.
Craniosacral Therapy, or Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a noninvasive bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column.
In 2016 I underwent emergency spinal surgery for a severe intervertebral disc bulge at L4/5 which was causing me nerve problems. The surgery fixed the nerve problem but unfortunately I was left with chronic pain. I was seeing an excellent physiotherapist every fortnight for two years, but didn't seem to be able to get on top of the pain for longer than a few days.
My wife is a doctor, who had seen Michelle previously for her own back pain problems and she urged me to go to Michelle, telling me there is a lot of evidence for massage helping to break down scar tissue. I was sceptical at first, but have now been seeing Michelle every month for two years. I truly believe my pain is improved because the scar tissue and muscles around the operation site are kept supple with massage.
I no longer need muscle relaxants, pain killers or physiotherapy. I have a very physical job and am glad to say I am no longer concerned about my ability to continue working. I have also been able to return to lifting weights in the gym, which I've always enjoyed. I highly recommend remedial massage by Michelle.
