Traditional Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is a traditional deep tissue massage. It is non painful, very systematic, problem based therapy form and it is good for tight muscles,neck/shoulder/back problems etc.
Treatment time is 60 or 90 minutes.
Massage is an ancient healing form for the soft tissue, suitable for everyone and for all ages. Massage relaxes, reduces stress and treats various muscular tensions and pains in the muscular system. It also improves vascular and lymfatic system serculation.
Physiotherapy specialised on surfing injuries and muscular system problems.
“Together with the client, we’ll find the reasons why the body has gone into imbalance and is starting to break it’s machinery.”
We open the locks of the body with different manual techniques, trigger point therapy, Mulligan mobilisation techniques, myofascia treatments, and various technical tools. The natural balance of the body is regained by functional movement pattern training.
Physiotherapy consists of:
1. Examination/tests/diagnosis/video analysis of dysfunctional movement patterns.
2. Opening/unlocking unbalanced areas of the body with passive treatments
3. Getting back full range of practical movement patterns into formerly dysfunctional body.
4. Practical stabilizing exercises for patients specific problems.
5. Functional strengthening exercises to get back strong and stable body.
Home exercises are on video form and send straight to clients email.
