~Myofascial Dry Needling~

Bree is also qualified in Myofascial Dry Needling. This highly effective treatment approach applies fine needles to the musculoskeletal system to deactivate taut and contracted muscles and release myofascial trigger points. This treatment can be useful in chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and back and neck pain, as well as assisting in the facilitation of migraine and headache relief, alleviating muscle tension for injury prevention in athletes such as tight hamstrings, sporting injuries, and other neuropathic conditions.

~Relaxation Massage~

A great massage is one that not only feels good, but also stretches and releases tight muscles, leaving you with a longer lasting, deeper relaxation feeling, rather than just feeling relaxed while having the massage.

Fresh Start believes in a holistic approach to treating pain and other muscular issues. Massages can be utilised solely for a relaxation effect or be used with a combination of modalities including exercise physiology and myofascial dry needing to treat your pain issues.

Some of the Benefits of Massage:
• Helps increase blood and lymphatic circulation
• Increases flexibility & restores lost mobility
• Eases pressure on the skeletal system & joints
• Helps prevent muscle & tendon injuries
• Helps prevent stress
• Helps in the prevention of musculoskeletal problems
• Regular massage helps you to think & function more efficiently
• Regular massage improves your overall feeling of wellbeing
