Koru Therapies

Reduce pain, improve movement and enhance performance

Deep tissue / Therapeutic:

 

This specialised technique is designed to work on the deep layers of soft tissue such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. 

Sessions will focus on specific areas or on resolving specific problems. This has a therapeutic effect on chronic muscular pain and postural dysfunction.

Scaring, adhesions (knots) and muscle spasm are treated with the goal to alleviate muscle tension and restore function to the affected area.

Because this technique is very specific, some muscular soreness may be experienced 24-36 hours following a session.

 

Sports massage /Injury rehabilitation:

 

Anyone from athletes to those who simply want to improve their fitness can benefit from this treatment. And more people are incorporating sports massage into their athletic routines.

The focus of this technique is to deal with the effects of repetitive muscle use, uneven muscle development, strains or injuries. 

It targets specific muscle groups to improve flexibility, range of movement, decreased recovery time and injury prevention. Results include better muscle efficiency and improved performance.

 

 

Neuromuscular therapy:

 

This systemised approach treats underlying causes of chronic pain and restores balance to the muscular and nervous systems. 

Injury, trauma, postural distortions and stress can all influence nerve transmission and therefore overall function. Based on symptoms and evaluation; techniques are used to address trigger points, postural issues and biomechanical problems caused by repetitive movement patterns.

Treating specific areas of irritation can restore postural and neurological function and can be the answer to long-standing pain that has otherwise been untreated.

Corporate workplace chair massage:
