Massage at Total Health
Massage is one of the most popular treatments available at our clinics in Cambridge, Peterborough, Spalding and Huntingdon. This is because we provide a wide range of different types of treatments and have over 30 practitioners qualified to provide this effective hands-on treatment. This means our patients can find the exact treatment they need to ease their problem.
There are hundreds of varieties of hands-on treatments and many practitioners use multiple techniques. The way that therapists use these hands-on techniques also varies, but often include, gentle stroking or kneading, touching, compressive, rolling, friction, and stretching to the muscles and soft tissues of the body. The therapists will often use oils to reduce the friction of treatment. The clinic has a number of hypo-allergenic massage lotions, although if you are unsure as to the suitability due to potential skin irritation, just inform your therapist.
What to expect from Massage
The application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body is generally intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. The many variations of massage account for several different techniques. Various forms of touch therapies that may use manipulation, movement, and/or re-patterning to affect structural changes to the body.
Sprains and strains- particularly twisted ankles!
MCL & ACL injuries.
Achilles tendon injuries
Tennis & Golfers Elbow
Frozen Shoulder and Rotator Cuff tears
If in doubt- rule yourself out is the phrase in professional football. Stop playing immediately to prevent further injury. Initial treatment can be orientated around PRICEMM (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, Mobility and Management).
A simple ice pack applied to the injured area for 10-15 minutes can work wonders at relieving pain and reducing swelling. If after 48 hours the pain is still there it’s time to seek professional help. Our therapists can adapt the PRICEMM model to you and your injury.
“I’m suffering from back pain for a number of years and more recently from tendonitis in both shoulders. A friend of mine recommended to see Soraya working as osteopath at Cambridge Complementary Health. Soraya helped me reducing the pain significantly by using manual treatment and gave helpful advice about how to stretch and loosen muscles. I would recommend her to other people with back and neck problems. She’s taken the time to listen to your problems carefully to get an idea about the whole picture of the problem. If I will need osteopathic help again I’d contact her.”
“I went to Cambridge Complementary Health for osteopathy for my neck and back. Service and treatment were both excellent. I saw Soriah the osteopath and she was very understanding and experienced. I had already tried chiropractic and physiotherapy, neither of which did the trick. She also gave great advice on continuing to build my fitness to avoid future problems. Thoroughly recommend!”
“First class treatment by all staff, admin and treatment alike. I recommended husband to Jack who has done a wonderful job. Definitely keep going for maintenance treatments as the original problem has completely cleared up thanks to not only the treatment but advice for how to keep it from not coming back in the form of exercises and posture. Many many thanks.”
