What is Soft Tissue Therapy? aka Massage

Soft Tissue Therapy (STT) is a hands-on massage from an appropriately qualified therapist, in my case, an osteopath.

STT differs from most massages you might receive in a spa or most health clubs. The differences are the patient screening process and the therapist’s intent. Both will ensure the treatment is specific to the patient’s needs.

STT treatments can vary in intensity. Between the patient and therapist, the appropriate intensity can be found. This means patients who prefer a deeper tissue treatment can be catered for, as well as patients who need and respond better to lighter techniques.

Before I deliver any Massage treatments, patients receive an abbreviated version of an osteopathic consultation to ensure their suitability for treatment.

This ensures a complete understanding of a patient’s health and needs is obtained. This ensures the treatment is suitable for the patient’s needs but also helps guide the treatment and ensure clear intent.
