This enhances the body’s natural ability to heal damaged tissue which in turn restores function, improves joint mobility and easing the pain.

The actual treatment intervention, such as massage, e.g. application of adequate and appropriate pressure to the soft tissues of the body including movement is only a part – though a highly significant part – of the whole process. The intellectual reasoning that precedes, accompanies and follows the treatment is essential and complex.
