Caroline Musgrove MMSM(MT), IIHHT, IIST Sports and Manipulative Therapist Craniosacral Therapist

Treatment is offered for specific injuries incurred through sporting activities, work or daily life. Typically, this involves deep soft-tissue work, trigger pointing and stretching  to assist  the healing process of an injured muscle, realign damaged tissues, prevent scar tissue and restore as much of original function as possible.

Often treatment involves movement of the muscles and joints by the therapist to increase range of movement and assist healing.

Sports massage is also a valuable treatment, involving in-depth manipulation of the soft tissue structures – helping to boost performance, release muscle tensions and eliminate toxins.  Treatment can be modified for pre-event and post-event circumstances.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

This is a whole-body therapy, which affects the mechanics of the spinal cord, its attachments via its surrounding membranes and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.  It’s an incredibly gentle and very safe treatment which can be used for patients of all ages.

This therapy developed from the work of an American osteopath, Dr William Sutherland in the early 1900s. He discovered intrinsic movements of the bones in the head and his further research revealed different rhythms in the body. He inferred, from further observation, and later went on to demonstrate to his satisfaction, that these movements are inextricably linked with mental and emotional health and that restriction of these movements corresponds to a reduction of the natural capacity to self-heal.
