It’s Time to Stop Chasing Pain

Have you ever wanted to:

MOVE BETTER? 


BECOME STRONGER?


HEAL FASTER?

 

If so, then it’s time to create change.

Pain is your bodies way of communicating to you. The red flag is a sign that something is not in alignment. Something in your body is in disharmony, and disharmony is the cause for dis-Ease. 

When you have been in pain almost all your life, it becomes difficult to know who you are without feeling like you’re heading toward a downward spiral. 

Change your lifestyle, move better, improve your habits and behaviour and start taking back control of your life. This is what needs to happen if you want to start living pain free and in optimal health. 

Muscle Alignment prides itself by bringing you the best practise of both Western and Eastern treatment modalities.

ORTHOPAEDIC MASSAGE

 

Massage

Aims to alleviate the source of bodily pain and tension.

Orthopaedic massage focuses on the tissues and muscles surrounding the joints of the body. While it aims to alleviate the source of bodily pain and tension, orthopaedic massage also works to restore balance and improve range of motion to your physical structures.

Typically, you would use orthopaedic massage for post-surgical pain, pain from an acute injury, or pain from overuse strain due to repetitive motion from an activity like typing, running, tennis or jogging. Whatever the cause of the muscle damage, the intent of the orthopaedic massage is to lengthen and soften the muscles and ligaments, permitting better range of motion of the affected joints and body.

The goal for an orthopaedic massage session typically include decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and preparing the body to return to activities of daily living, including formal daily routines and active hobbies.

 

“Massage has had a positive effect on every medical condition we’ve looked at.”

—Tiffany Field, Ph.D. Director, Touch Research Institute, University of Miami.

I still compete at an international level and have a crew of professionals around me that keep my body and mind happy and healthy. Sheb has treated me and I found her to be highly professional, knowledgeable and sensitive to my specific needs. I believe her gift is her ability to hone in on what you need as an individual, none of this generic one size fits all approach. She is highly accomplished in her field, Bachelor Ex Sport Science, dip remedial massage, dip in Fitness and cert Iv in fitness. Sheb listens to and treats her clients in a holistic fashion and I would recommend her to anyone. Whether you are an athlete, or someone with a specific injury or concern go see Sheb for a comprehensive consultation.” Nikki Lange

“Remedial masseurs, good ones, are very difficult to find. I can recommend Sheb very highly. Her philosophical approach to treating and understanding the patients requirements is something that was attractive to me. Understanding the body is something she excels at. I also like the fact that she doesn’t chat throughout the whole treatment allowing the patient to relax . Identifying the problem areas and treating it successfully is also ones of Shebs special capabilities.” Elizabeth Burgess

“It is my immense pleasure to recommend Sheb as one of the best Physical therapists I have had the pleasure of working with in recent history. I am a Double Amputee and currently training for a Marathon, so apart from numerous complex medical issues affecting nerve sensation and limited movement, I have the added complication of general therapy needs, muscle stiffness and soreness.

To her credit, Sheb never took a backwards step, showing both gifted diagnostic and therapy skills. Without hesitation, Sheb’s willingness to work on the area’s most Therapists find too difficult was impressive. Always ready to explain and completely mindful of my comfort, Sheb’s smiling and positive nature exuded confidence in her ability to treat.

I believe Sheb to be a remarkably talented Woman, well beyond her years in knowledge and understanding of the human body. Sheb’s ability to utilise practices including Chinese Medicine, Shiatzu massage as well as other diverse methods, I believe puts her in an elite category rarely seen in Therapy.

Without reservation, I give my unequivocal and complete endorsement of Sheb’s abilities and truly believe her superior skillset is not only a credit to her, but will guarantee there are no safer hands to be in.

I wish Sheb all the best for the future and look forward to seeing her again when I am in Newcastle” Nathan Maher
