Disability and Neurological Conditions

Massage and Myofascial Therapy for Disability and Neurological Conditions

I have extensive experience providing Massage and Myofascial Release therapy for people with disability and neurological conditions be it congenital or following injury or an illness. A neurological condition is a problem associated with the central nervous system, namely the brain and spinal cord. Examples include Spinal injury, MS, Parkinsons and Cerebral Palsy. I also work with people living with the effects of autoimmune conditions such as fibromyalgia which is a condition characterised by widespread chronic pain which appears to result from processes in the central nervous system.

A neurological condition is a problem associated with the central nervous system, namely the brain and spinal cord.

Due to the complexities of the central nervous system, people with neurological problems can have a variety of problems. These may be muscle stiffness or spasm (commonly called spasticity), weakness of muscle, tremor, problems with sensation etc.

By taking a sensitive approach to positioning during the treatment and other medical needs I create a positive environment for my clients.

By taking a holistic approach to rehabilitation my clients are empowered to enhance their quality of life. I am committed to providing high quality, individually tailored therapy that makes a positive difference.

 

 

My clients enjoy the benefits of Massage and Myofascial Release therapy in the following ways; 

  • Ease the side effects of immobility such as stiff painful joints, chronic muscle tightness and poor posture
  • Increase blood flow to tissues enabling nutrients to pass through more easily to repair tight or damaged muscles
  • Release tension and stretch over used muscles
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Promote positive body awareness
  • Desensitise sensitive areas
  • Free myofascial adhesions and soften scar tissue caused by surgery, injury or over use

I regularly work together with other healthcare professionals, such as Physiotherapists and Case Managers, to manage ongoing symptoms, facilitate recovery from injury and chronic pain and to enhance quality of life.

I am aware of the importance of keeping up to date with current practice and have an active CPD policy – I continually update my knowledge by attending courses and reading relevant articles.
