What causes pain? To put it simply: pain is often caused by 'tight' muscles, which cannot function efficiently - causing trapped nerves, restricted circulation, inflammation and restricted mobility.
This system of treatment was developed by Dr Craig Benedict, one of the world's leading soft-tissue therapists. He has spent more than 25 years working with the world's best athletes and dancers to develop a treatment procedure that's simple and safe - and as effective on non-athletes as it is on athletes.
Other physical therapies such as osteopathy or chiropractic concentrate on the skeletal structure, but Dr Benedict's system of treatment focuses on the soft tissue such as muscles, ligaments and tendons, which make up 75 per cent of your body's mass.
Each treatment session begins with an evaluation of your soft tissue - the muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage and their surrounding connective tissue (fascia) - then we will assess your range of movement and pain levels. Our unique combination of trigger-point work and soft-tissue-mobilisation techniques lengthen and separate these muscles and tendons, as well as stretch the connective tissue. This procedure, combined with postural realignment techniques improves your range of movement and reduces pain. We will then work with you to develop a self-help programme of stretching routines, exercises and postural advice so you can work on your own.
The techniques that Wendy uses to treat sports injuries, postural/work problems and pre and post surgical rehabilitation include a unique combination of methods. When using sports massage techniques Wendy uses a light hyperallergelic massage medium that does not stain clothes or leave you feeling like you are covered in baby oil. Or if you would rather not undress then Wendy's techniques can work through light clothing.
Other techniques include Fascial remodelling and trigger point therapy along with a number of electrotherapy modalities such as inferential therpay and short/long wave ultrasound.
Wendy also provides rehabilitation and postural advice providing free self help exercises. Although already a qualified athletics coach she is at present training to to become a Personal trainer to further enhance her knowledge of exercise and rehabilitation.
