Here’s just some of the ways that we’ll help you using sports massage, soft tissue therapy in Spalding, Lincolnshire.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Muscle, ligament, tendons and fascia make up the body’s soft tissue, and it’s these areas that soft tissue therapists look to manipulate in order to help clients feel better and move easier.
The manipulation includes a wide variety of different techniques. Of course, standard Swedish massage can be used, along with deeper massage techniques and specialised working such as Muscle Energy Techniques and working with trigger points.
For us, soft tissue therapy is different from sports massage, focusing on movement rather than athletic performance.
At State 11 we believe that everyone – regardless of athleticism, deserves to feel comfortable with movement.
Soft tissue therapy can help anybody feel like themselves again.
Sharon Wheeler is an American therapist who has spent decades working with scars, developing an innovative technique that can improve both the feel and movement of scar tissue after surgery or injury.
ScarWork doesn’t rely on the use of expensive oils or lotions by the client, and is a gentle technique that can really make a difference, on both old and new scars.
State 11 is one of the only studios in the Lincolnshire area to offer this treatment, which can be used on scars ranging from “planned” scars like mastectomy or caesarians through to scars from car accidents, industrial accidents or even just falls.
Kinesiology taping, sometimes known as sports taping, involves applying body friendly tape to the skin to help decompress tissues and aid movement, effectively “turning down the volume on pain”. It’s suitable for both athletes and non-athletes, and comes in both sensitive skin and waterproof varieties, as well as regular use tape.
It’s a technique that can be done at home, and we can show you how to apply tape yourself, to support your recovery.
Cupping & Gua Sha
Cupping and Gua Sha are traditional Chinese medicine techniques, and at State 11 we use westernised version of these time proven techniques.
Our cupping uses silicone sports cups (RockTape RockPods) to facilitate movement of sore and stiff muscles, and our gua sha uses (RockTape RockBlades) to help the fascia rather than causing injury to the tissues.
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset is a neurologically based, active, therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within the body.
This exciting technique is common across Canada and some of the USA, but little known here – we’re the only studio in South Lincs offering it!
