Deep Tissue Massage

Back and neck massages – two major problem areas of the body frequently treated in the clinic.

The back responds wonderfully to massage and it is a good area on which to begin any massage session because most people feel comfortable about being touched there. The spinal cord is literally our ‘lifeline’ fanning out between each fo the spinal vertebrae are pairs of spinal nerves (33 pairs in all) that govern many of the body’s functions.

For this reason alone, a back massage can benefit the whole body and mind. The back is an extremely vulnerable area of the body, consisting of 12 major muscle groups and many other underlying ones that assist everyday movments such as bending, sitting down, getting up, walking, lifting, driving, running and exercising. It is no wonder that back pain accounts for more lost working days than any other complaint.  You could also use Dry Needling in Cairns to assist you further with you pain relief program.

Bad posture is major cause of back problems. Slouching over a desk, sitting incorrectly in front of a computer, carrying and lifting heavy objects, can all contribute to muscular tension and back discomfort.

Massage is a great way to alleviate muscle tension, ease pain, and generally create a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.

Massage will increase the blood circulation to alleviate the pain. You should also try to stretch out the affected muscle.


Back strain is the most common source of debilitating pain. Most sports put increased strain on the legs, buttocks and back. Previous injuries can make the back prone to recurrent pain. Awkward, inappropriate or excessive exercise can also cause trouble. You should never subject the back to unnecessary strain. With a regular and thorough back massage (particularly before exercise) the likelihood of injury is reduced.   You may also want to try our dry needling in cairns.

Neck and Shoulder massage

The neck and shoulders are the main areas prone to tension in our body. The neck is very delicate and it has to support the head, which is a heavy part of the body, weighing approximately 6kg.

Like the back, the neck and shoulder muscles help you to perform daily activities such as carrying shopping, driving, gardening, doing domestic chores, lifting babies, pushing buggies, even using a knife and fork.

Many emotional feelings are carried in the neck and shoulder area – we literally carry our burdens on our shoulders. Bad posture, such as hunching your shoulders when you feel cold or nervous, also affects this area. This causes the muscles at the sides and back of the neck to become very tense.

When the neck muscles becomes imbalanced, headaches can occur. If the shoulder muscles are tense the range of movement in the shoulder, arm and neck can be affected, some sports, such as gold, softball, tennis, swimming and bowling can also create neck and shoulder problems – so it is important that this area of the body is kept free of tension and discomfort.

The head and scalp

Head and scalp massage should follow a facial massage. All over the head there are reflexology points which when stimulated can energize the whole body. By massaging the head and scalp you will be able to loosen the thin layer of muscles covering the skull. Massaging this helps to increase the constant supply of blood needed by the brain and can promote deep relaxtion.

Scalp massage has the additional benefit of increasing the supply of blood to the hair follicles. In India head and scalp massage is carried out regularly on both adults and children, using coconut oil to increase the shine and texture of the hair. Yogis stand on their head to increase the flow of blood to the brain and hair follicles.

Many hairdressers now train their staff to massage the scalp when washing customers hair and it something you can easily do for yourself at home, or even in the office. Make sure your nails are short because you will be using your fingertips.

Massage and Exercise

Professional sports people value massage very highly, not least because it works on several levels. Used before exercise it can prepare the body for the increase in activity not only by warming and loosening the muscles and joints (increasing their flexibility and helping to prevent cramps and injuries), but also by stimulating the system, both physically and mentally. This is the key to improved performance.

After an exercise session, massage speeds up the elimination of waste products (in particular lactic acid) by stimulating the lymphatic system. The accumulation of these waste products during exercise is the cause of much of the stiffness and pain experienced afterwards.

Strains and Sprains

A burning sensation under the skin is likely to indicate that muscles, fibres or ligaments have been strained – stretched beyond their natural limits. This is often the result of exercising without an adequate warmup routine or overexertion.

A routine of pre-exercise massage and limbering will help to prevent strains. Gently massaging the affected area will also help to speed recovery.

Sprains are more serious and are caused by violent wrenching of a joint, most commonly the ankle, wrist or knee.

The surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons may also be damaged and the affected area may be extremely painful and swollen. Apply an ice pack or cold compress for 15-20 minutes to reduce swelling. When it is removed we can start to massage the area gently, taking care not to work directly on the swelling. Rest the ankle as much as possible and use a support bandage.


You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to suffer from cramp. On the contrary, it is usually underused or ill prepared muscles which go into cramp. It doesn’t even take movemnt to set it off ; the searing pain of cramp can occur in the middle of the night, when the reduced circulation has caused muscles to contract. Frequent cramps may indicate generall poor circulation or a deficiency of calcium or salt.
