Soft Tissue Therapy: Less pain. Reduced stiffness. Upgraded performance.

Whether you’re nursing a repetitive strain injury or sprain, recovering from a recent operation or taking proactive steps to improve your overall mobility and performance, our 360º approach to your health and well-being can accelerate your progress.

As part of your personal treatment plan, your team may recommend Soft Tissue Therapy, which helps to manage, manipulate and rehabilitate soft tissues like muscles, tendons and ligaments.

This effective form of manual physical therapy uses hands-on techniques to reduce day-to-day problems, make pain more manageable, tackle stiffness and optimise your muscle function.

How it works

There are two types of tissue in our body; soft tissues and hard tissues. Hard tissues basically consist of bones, while soft tissues make up your muscles, connective tissue/fascia, tendons, ligaments, and joints.

Manipulating and massaging the soft tissues of the body is known as Soft Tissue Therapy. At Spectrum, Soft Tissue Therapy covers a range of modalities, including deep tissue massage, sports massage, effleurage and petrissage. So whatever your body needs, we can help.

This clinically proven, hands-on treatment helps to increase local blood flow and accelerate healing – by helping to clear damaged cells, supply tissues with oxygen and nutrients, and combat tension and fatigue.
