TREATMENTS

An explanation of some of the treatments we offer

Sports Massage

Sports massage/massage therapy/deep tissue massage is a safe and effective way of working into the muscles and soft tissues. Hands on therapy either with oil on the skin or dry through clothing. Massage therapy uses a mix of techniques working methodically into the muscles and is wonderfully relaxing and very effective as pain relief. It can aid recovery and is great for injury prevention and maintenance to help you feel good for your job, your sport, during pregnancy or just for relaxation. Our therapists are trained in different techniques so no two sessions will be exactly the same. We don't really do 'set routines' here at Mountain Massage Co. We would much rather ask you what you want from the treatment and work accordingly. Hazel Clark, and James Clark are trained in Sports Massage & Massage Therapy.

Myofascial Release

Is a wonderfully relaxing and therapeutic hands on technique for mobilising and unwinding the fascia. Highly effective with pain, postural disfunction and conditions like fibromyalgia and TMJ problems to name just two. Fascia is all the ‘stuff’ that isn’t our muscles, bones and organs. It surrounds all our tissues and is a continuous web of highly elastic and strong tissue designed to protect us and support our body. Imagine it like a very complicated and living 3D woolly jumper. All the fascia is connected, so if you tried to unpick it you would end up with one ball of wool at the end. By working on one area we can have a release through the whole body. Your therapist will take the tissue to tension and follow the releases of the tissue, moving around the body following areas of tension. Hazel Clark is trained in slow sustained Myofascial Release with Myofascial Release UK.

Acupuncture

Dry Needling (sometimes called Medical Acupuncture). Dry needling uses acupuncture needles to release tight, painful areas of muscle and fascia. Your highly trained therapist might use just one needle on a specific area of tissue they have felt or a few needles in a certain pattern to get an area to release. It is surprisingly un-painful, so much so you sometimes can’t feel them at all. Dry needling is great for easing tissue tension & spasm and helps to reduce pain. Occasionally you might have a little bruise mark at the needle site. Your therapists would talk to you before treatment. Hazel Clark is trained in Dry Needling/Medical Acupuncture with OMT training.

Podiatry

Podiatry - is specialist lower limb, feet and ankle care, sometimes called Chiropody. It can cover biomechanical issues with the foot and ankle or can be used for foot health and care. Foot Care & Nail Surgery Your podiatrist will assess your needs and use different types of treatment options and offer home care advice. Your podiatrist/chiropodist is highly skilled in the use of surgical tools and provides treatment and advice for hard cracked skin, corns, cracked heels, callus, verrucae, fungal nails, ingrown nails and other foot problems. Our podiatrist is trained in diabetology, rheumatology, wound healing, dermatology & vascular disease.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses a machine directly over the specific problem area. It is painless and directs a wave into the tissue. Very simply, ultrasound can either be used to calm tissue down or stir tissue up. So, depending on what the problem is your trained therapist can either calm down an acute area of tissue or stir up a more chronic area of tissue to promote healing. Hazel Clark is trained in Ultrasound Therapy.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping uses stretchy tape applied in a certain way to help ease pain symptoms and aid healing. It is a simple technique but very effective in reducing pain and improving function. You have probably seen it on athletes at the Olympics or Wimbledon. Hazel and James are trained in Kinesio Taping. Jude Hamer is trained in specialist foot and ankle taping.

Beauty

Mariola offers Manicures & Pedicures (Shellac and Calgel gel nails available), Waxing and Tinting, Decleor Facials as well as skin peels. Cryotherapy and Electrolysis for the treatment of skin tags, milia, and fine veins.

Biomechanics

Biomechanics is looking at how your feet and ankles move and how they function in relation to the knees and hips to help remedy pain in the joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. Jude can also fit and prescribe orthotics or specialist footwear to help prevent problems and pain. For more complex biomechanical musculo-skeletal issues we refer on to Zoe Wilson at Z.W. Foot and Ankle in Kendal.

Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial Cupping is a direct fascial technique that very quickly and effectively loosens the superficial fascia layers. You will love it as you will feel very dramatic results and our therapists love it as it allows them to be in two places at once; we can use cupping on one area whilst massaging another area. You might be left with some red marks like Micheal Phelps or Gwyneth Paltrow! Fairer skin tones tend to mark a bit more. Your therapist would talk to you before treatment. Hazel Clark and Louis Mackay are trained in Cupping Therapy.

Pilates

Pilates is all about getting our bodies to move well. It strengthens the weaker bits and lengthens the short tight bits and really gets the brain talking to the muscles to help improve our mobility and the way we move. It is a fantastic way to help avoid future muscular skeletal pain and is a wonderful compliment to other sports and activities and helps keep us strong for the jobs we do, the sports we play and the life we want to lead.
