Manual Therapy


Sports & Remedial Therapies



Body Belief Therapies operates a highly qualified and experienced therapy service. All qualifications have been recently updated, providing its patients with the latest in remedial techniques, sports injury treatments, rehabilitation and pain relief.



Benefits of Manual Therapies   


  

  • Increase the blood’s oxygen capacity by 10-15%
  • Massage can dramatically aid lymph movement, which together with blood, supplies nutrients and oxygen and rids wastes and toxins
  • Help loosen contracted, shortened muscles and stimulate weak, flaccid muscles. This muscle “balancing” can even help posture and promote more efficient movement;
  • Speed recovery from exercise-induced fatigue;
  • Increase production of gastric juices, saliva and urine;
  • Increase excretion of nitrogen, inorganic phosphorus, and sodium chloride (salt). This suggests that the metabolic rate increases;
  • Balance the nervous system by soothing or stimulating it, depending on which effect is needed;
  • Improves function of the oil and sweat glands that lubricate, clean and cool the skin. Though, inflexible skin can become softer and more supple;
  • Indirectly or directly stimulating nerves that supply internal organs, can dilate the organs’ blood vessels, improving blood supply.



Manual Therapy, Injuries and Well-being


Manual Therapy helps recovery from soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains. Tissue growth and repair is accelerated by efficient circulation and appropriate stimulation.

Everybody experiences some form of stress through work, family, the environment and society. Mental tensions, frustrations, and insecurity cause the most damage. Hormones released by stress actually shrink the vessels, inhibiting circulation. A stressed mind and body means the heart works harder. Breathing becomes rapid and shallow and digestion slows. Nearly everybody process is degraded. Studies show stress can cause migraines, hypertension (high blood pressure), depression, some peptic ulcers, etc. In fact, researchers have estimated 80% of disease is stress related. Soothing and relaxing massage therapy can counteract the effects of stress.
