THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE WITH CUPPING

Helps to reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body. It can also promote mental and physical relaxation and well-being...

Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jar as suction devices that are placed on the skin. The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage, rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upwards. For most patients this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.

Once suctioned, the cups are generally left for about ten minutes while the patient relaxes. This is similar to the practice of Tuina, a traditional Chinese medicine massage technique that targets acupuncture points as well as painful body parts, and is well known to provide relief through pressure.

MYOFASCIAL  RELEASE

Myofascial release (or MFR) is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This alternative medicine therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles.

Fascia surrounds, infuses and protects every other tissue, tendon, muscle, bone, ligament and organ of the body and it is cushioning and supportive mechanism allowing us to move safely without pain. Fascia, like muscle, has the ability to contract and relax and plays a major role in mobility and stability of joints.

Following all physical and emotional trauma and through poor posture, fascia scars and hardens. This causes the fascial network to lose its cushioning mechanism and internal structures become pulled out of alignment. This in turn creates an abnormal pressure, crushing nerves, blood and lymphatic vessels and further creating tension on adjacent pain-sensitive structures and those along the fascial pull.

Fascial restrictions do not show up on CAT scans, MRI’s or X Rays therefore many patients are suffering unresolved physical and emotional pain due to undiagnosed fascial trauma. 

Here are 5 of the main benefits of Myofascial Release:

  • Increases blood flow. ...
  • Improves muscular range of motion. ...
  • Reduce muscle soreness. ...
  • Maintains normal functional muscular length. ...
  • Encourages movement of your lymph – a major component of your immune system that helps to fight infection in the body.

COST: £1 per min. 

KINETIC CHAIN RELEASE

Kinetic Chain Release (KCR) aligns and balances the body gently and fully. 
Connective Tissue Release (CTR) opens up areas of deep restriction within the body.
Postural Energetics (PE) allows you to fine tune and self heal your own body daily.


What is Kinetic Chain Release (KCR)?


It is a Gold Standard Treatment. KCR is a simple, yet extremely effective, system of stretches and releases that brings the physical body back into balance quickly and easily.

What is Connective Tissue Release (CTR)?

Hugh's approach to releasing the connective tissue is a combination of techniques. Having found that the connective tissue aka Myofascial Release, releases much quicker and most times with much less emotional crisis when the protocol of KCR is applied first.

What is Postural Energetics?

Postural Energetics was developed by Hugh Gilbert, based on the principles of Psychosomatic Therapy as taught by Herman Mueller, who shows how the body is a reflection of your energy and spirit. Hugh's insight and intuition lead him to realize that changes no matter how gentle in your posture will change everything.
This therapy founded by Hugh Gilbert is specifically designed to almost effortlessly free your body of physical restrictions and help restore it to it's natural, dynamic, balanced and energetic state. Many medical 'experts' will tell you that without months of postural reconstruction this cannot be done. KCR proves this completely untrue and often succeeds in doing so in less than 45 minutes. Sessions take place on a treatment table and clients are fully clothed at all times.
