Kinesio Tape

Rock Tape

The Kinesio taping method, is a rehabilitative technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. It also provides extended soft tissue manipulation, to prolong the benefits of manual therapy.

Kinesio tape is almost identical to human skin, in both thickness and elasticity. It is a thin stretchy elastic cotton strip, with an acrylic adhesive. This allows it to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of your movements.

When the tape is applied it forms convolutions and wrinkles this decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin, this in turn helps improve blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area. Increasing the slide and glide between tissue layers. Improving body awareness and the perception of pain.

Theraputic kinesio tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries plus inflammatory conditions. and a variety of physical disorders.

Hot Stones

How do hot stones work?

I use basalt pebbles, I heat these and use them as a tool to massage stiff aching and painful muscles.

The heat of the stones, warms the skin, fascia and the muscles within the body, therefore creating a deeper and more intense treatment.
Although this is a therapeutic healing treatment, it is also a relaxing experience that will leave you feeling calm, refreshed and full of energy.

It is generally accepted that one stroke of a heated basalt stone, is the equivalent to over 5 strokes of the therapists hands.

The treatment is ideal for:
  • Aches & pains
  • Muscular tension
  • Stress & tension
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Relaxation
  • re-balancing of your body

Hot stones are only available at the clinic.

Myofascial Cupping

Is a soft tissue therapy that encourages the bodies natural healing process. Suction from the cups draws the skin and underlying tissues up and mobilises blood and energy around the body, loosening muscles, encouraging blood flow and sedating the nervous system. The treatment will be combined with massage.

Cupping is used to relieve
  • Back & Neck pain
  • Stiff muscles
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Rheumatism
  • Flushing built up toxins through the lymphatic system

Not suitable for pregnant women or people who bleed easily.

Cupping procedures may leave light to dark red marks on the skin, these will disappear in 5 to 10 days.

Only available at the Clinic or by prior arrangement for Mobile.
