What are some of these techniques?

Fascial Manipulation©

This is a manual technique to move and ‘unstick’ the fascia. Simply put, fascia is the interconnecting tissue between bones, muscles and organs and is often overlooked by therapists. Certain points of fascia within the body may become tethered down which will limit joint and muscle function and cause pain. Releasing these points can restore function and relieve pain.

Myofascial Release

This is similar in principle to Fascial Manipulation but involves sustained stretches of the fascia and focuses more superficial layers of the fascia

Muscle Energy Techniques

This technique uses the muscle’s contractile force to allow maximal relaxation and stretch, post contraction. The aim is to restore a muscle’s resting length

Sarah Key Method

Sarah Key is a well-known Australian Physiotherapist. Her treatment method is designed to mobilise individual spinal segments followed by a series of decompression and strengthening exercises. Both Kirsten and Steve are trained in the Sarah Key Method

Graston Technique®

This is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilisation. Useful in the management of muscle, tendon and ligamentous injury
