About Soft Tissue Therapy
Kate specialises in using a wide range of Soft Tissue techniques for whole body alignment, ensuring that the body’s soft tissue is in optimal condition to ensure you are able to achieve the goals you have set yourself.
Soft Tissue therapists use a number of techniques including sports massage to help prevent and resolve any aches and pains whether these are acute or chronic conditions. These techniques are aimed at improving range of movement, reduce pain, correct muscle imbalances and prevent areas of adhesion formation.
