Physiotherapy is a health care profession which assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being. The terms "physiotherapy" and "physical therapy" mean the same thing and are used interchangeably, as are the terms “physiotherapist” and “physical therapist”.

Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability. Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation, as well as prevention of injury, and promotion of health and fitness. Physiotherapists often work in teams with other health professionals to help meet an individual's health care needs.

Pelvic HEALTH

Pelvic Floor physiotherapy is becoming more established in the research as a first line of defence against Incontinence and Pelvic Pain for women. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be caused by:

When our pelvic floor muscles are unhealthy they can cause a host of problems as mentioned above. Women need to connect with these very important muscles again. No other set of voluntary muscles (muscles that we have direct control over) is as important, and yet is so consistently ignored in medicine and in our exercise regimes. These important muscles have five major functions including:

  • Maintaining continence of our bladder and bowel

  • Allowing sexual function and pleasure

  • Providing support to our internal organs so that our bladder, uterus, and intestines stay in the abdominal cavity where they belong

  • Providing support for our low back so that we can function without pain

  • Helps our circulatory system get the blood and other body fluids from the legs back to the trunk and heart

We need to connect with our pelvic floor muscles (know how to keep them strong, yet relaxed) throughout our life span to ensure that we have healthy functioning of all of these important activities.

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.

Modern massage techniques can be traced back to the 1700s and the development of Swedish massage, the first systematic method of therapeutic massage based on physiology. Today’s Massage Therapists use their knowledge of anatomy and physiology to combine traditional Swedish and modern Massage Therapy techniques with exercise and other therapies to treat their clients.

Before a treatment, your Massage Therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history. The assessment consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints. Any personal and health information you provide to your Massage Therapist is completely confidential and will be safeguarded. Your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent.

Your Massage Therapist must also obtain your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of whether you are fully clothed, or fully or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be respected, and you may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time.

Various specialized movements of the hands, over the skin or clothes, make up the Massage Therapy treatment. The Massage Therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment, and the treatment can be stopped at any time should the treatment become uncomfortable.
