What is Soft Tissue Therapy?

Every day activities, occupational stresses, sporting injuries and even poor posture can lead to soft tissues (muscles, tendons, joints, etc.) being strained or painful or insufficient. 

Left untreated, soft tissue damage may lead to chronic pain. Do you have carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, degenerative disk, sciatica, tendinitis, myalgia or rotor cuff syndrome?

Soft Tissue Therapy (STT) is a form of massage treatment that involves assessing the cause and origin of soft tissue injury, then applying specific manipulations to the affected areas.

  • How will Soft Tissue Therapy benefit YOU?
  • relieve muscle pain
  • improve movement and flexibility
  • breakdown scar tissue
  • improve posture
  • relieve tension
  • correct muscular imbalances
  • improve blood flow
  • assist healing

Importantly, STT can enhance sports performance, general wellbeing, and may also decrease workers compensation claims by reducing recovery time off work and introduce proactive measures to minimise workplace soft tissue injury and increase productivity.

Who can benefit

from Soft Tissue Therapy?

Muscle strains, poor posture, and soft tissue injury can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms and affect anyone of any age.

Are you pushing your body to extremes through intense physical training, or lead a largely sedentary lifestyle? You can make significant improvements to your health and wellbeing in the hands of an experienced and knowledgeable STT practitioner.

Your work, leisure activities, health, age and other factors can all impact how well your body performs. If you suffer aches, pains, headaches or other niggles, STT may offer relief no matter who you are.

Growing up

Those “growing pains” kids experience could be due to postural problems, lugging heavy schoolbags, or over-exerting soft tissues through sport or normal play. STT can help your child improve their basic motor skills so they can run, jump and play better.

8 hours at a desk can place enormous stress on your lower back, shoulders and neck. STT can provide relief to tight muscles and improve flexibility to joints that feel “frozen” from holding the same position over long periods.

Nurses, tradies, retail workers and stay-at-home parents can all suffer pain in their feet, calves and lower back from standing and bending all day. Regular STT can soothe aching muscles and aid relaxation.

As we age we can suffer problems with circulation, inflammation, loss of bone density and flexibility. Gentle massage can help improve blood flow and muscle tone, while also providing relief for painful joints and a range of psychological benefits.

Additional benefits reported by patients included improved sleep, mental clarity and awareness, movement, health of scar tissue and overall quality of life. 

A number of clinical studies have shown STT to be beneficial for cancer patients. According to the Australian Cancer Council, massage can help reduce nausea, pain, fatigue, stress and depression.
