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 is different to most massages you might receive in a spa, or most health clubs. The differences are down to the patient screening process, and the therapist’s intent. Both of which will ensure the treatment is specific the patients 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 is to ensure a full understanding of a patients health and needs are first obtained. This not only ensures the treatment is suitable for the patients needs, but also helps guide the treatment, and ensures there is a clear intent, above helping patients feel more relaxed.
