Release tension — Relieve pain — Improve health
Massage addresses all forms of condition, whether an injury, backache after gardening, strain from much-repeated movement, or simply the need to relax. Everyone benefits!
Whether deep tissue release for long term tension, remedial massage for injuries or chronic misalignment, or therapeutic massage for relieving stress and strain, whatever you call it and whatever techniques are used, essentially massage works, at every level. It is nature's way — watch cows massage their calves with their strong rough tongues, or even a cat easing an injury; and whether it's a bruised knee, a headache or deep back pain, it is instinctive to rub it. How much more relief can be found by massage from someone who knows just how and where to rub?
Muscle tension accounts for 85% of pain complaints so the purpose of massage is to release and lengthen muscle fibres. It is a wonderful treatment and can have amazing immediate and long-lasting results, but . . .
there is a Way Beyond massage —
Tension comes from repeated tasks with poor posture, or from habitually holding ourselves with more tension than is needed, or because we store mental or emotional tension in our bodies.
The unique approach at The Way Beyond helps you to recognise your patterns of physical activity and emotional behaviour that create tension, working with you to change them for greater freedom in your actions, thoughts and movements: freedom from tension, from stiffness, from pain, from risk of injury.
