Cinergee is a day spa and wellness retreat providing many different styles of massage therapy – all with different effects and preferred uses. To give you an idea what each are for and which modality best suits a particular condition, over the next few weeks we will be showcasing a particular massage technique and which team member specialises in that technique.
The first is muscle realignment therapy – called that because it literally straightens (aligns) the body through the release of the muscle and fascia. The technique uses a variety of modalities interwoven and delivered in a system of moves.
The founder of this technique and our CEO, Vivienne Bartle, has developed this system of moves over more than 3 decades. The technique works best on releasing muscle imbalances from top to toe. Most people will come in with neck and shoulder pain, but this is not where the issue is……most times we find the tension in the hands or feet and in some cases it can throw the pelvic balance out. What you do on a daily basis has a major influence on how the body operates. Chronic repetitive movement patterns can become very restrictive to the flow of the body.
When you are taught remedial massage you are taught to work on the sore spots, but in 80% of the cases where it hurts is not where the problem is but the end result of many years of using the body incorrectly and a weak spot in the system.
Muscle imbalances can start from childhood. When we injure ourselves as a child we cry for around 10 minutes and then we are off playing again. The injury causes muscle memory to remember the trauma and from that day forward our body moves differently. Put a lifetime of knocks and bumps into the mix and posture becomes affected leading to pain. Also throw in emotional trauma at the time of the injury or from a stressful lifestyle and that pain appears sooner rather than later. When we balance the body through muscle realignment therapy, the pain miraculously disappears without creating more pain in the process (a problem with most remedial massage techniques).
This is a very powerful but gentle treatment that is very effective for chronic issues. It also has amazing results on seemingly acute muscle conditions, I say seemingly because most injuries come about because, chronic muscle imbalances create weak spots around the body that are just ripe for injury. Unless the injury is from a motor vehicle accident, most trauma can be traced to muscle tension that has never before been addressed.
To make a booking for this treatment – Vivienne is your therapist although other team members are in training.
Your first session will require a 15 minute consultation attached to your treatment so a postural assessment and muscle testing can be performed to get the overall picture of your tension patterns.
This session is very educational as well as diagnostic as it helps to find all the tension patterns in the body. You leave knowing what changes are required to your daily activities to keep you pain free.
