Reasons why a Full Body Rebuild is right for you
Specific injuries or muscular problems can have a cascading effect. For example, an injured ankle could change how you walk, leading to knee alignment problems and hip issues. As these issues progress, the muscles of the back may become involved and even the overall posture could be affected with uneven shoulders and neck discomfort. While this all stemmed from one ankle injury, you may now require a full body assessment and treatment plan.
What your treatment may include
The relationship between the core muscles and those of the upper and lower quarter is a highly important one. A Postural Assessment will highlight evidence of any connection between injury, pain and posture. It should reveal where there is an unnatural or uneven load on certain muscle structures – common in sports-people who work on one specific area more than others.
Also known as Applied Kinesiology, this treatment relies on the premise that “for every action in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction” (Sir Issaac Newton’s Laws of Motion). When applied to the human body it could mean that an internal issue could result in an accompanying muscle weakness. When a muscle weakness is identified, the answer may be to identify the true cause, rather than simply work that muscle harder.
These encompass a range of tests designed for specific issues affecting particular areas including hip and spine, wrists and hands, shoulder or elbow joints. There are hundreds of special tests that can be performed, but when chosen with care they can help to identify the cause of the issue and how to rectify it.
This allows the practitioner to understand the range of movements a person can perform. Each person will have areas that affect them in different ways depending on the action they wish to perform. This can be helpful in addressing specific concerns and establishing a base understanding of where the client is starting.
These tests look at the brain/body connection and include assessments of hearing, eyesight, balance, coordination and general motor and sensory skills. This may highlight disorders or illnesses that need further investigation.
Massage & Manual Therapy
Massage and manual therapy are both passive and active activities that will warm and release strained and sore muscles. As part of a full body rebuild this will be used according to the work we have already completed to identify the source of any issues.
A Full Body Rebuild is perfect for any client that is unsure about the source of their pain or who feels that their injury is causing more problems than simply at the original site. By the end of the sessions, we will have worked out a way to rebuild the muscle structure to improve overall wellbeing.
Ant was welcoming, took my pain history and talked me through what he was manipulating. Been having a lot of trouble with my left hip, went for a walk today and no hint of old pain. He sent me exercises to do after my appointment to continue to strengthen my problem areas. Will be booking again soon.
Ant is brilliant – he really knows anatomy and massage, and will not only fix you with his hands, but also send you exercises to help prevent issues reoccurring. In addition, you'll have a good chat, get film recommendations, and all with alt rock background music – far better than the usual ambient pan pipe nonsense. Highly recommended!
Ant is brilliant ! He has the knowledge of a great physio combined with strong and targeted massage technique that just works and gets me moving again ! Turned up with a sore kneee that wouldnt bend left completely fine and fixed plus a clear understanding of what had caused the problem. He even emailed me exercises later that day to help avoid future problems. Cannot recommend enough !! Thanks Ant !
Really good massage. I've been used to massage therapists just going in with their hands and not asking questions, but Jessika talked to me about my motivations for booking and then worked on the specific areas that needed it. I came out feeling like I had clouds for muscles, and my posture is already better. Amazing!
I’ve had chronic issues with my neck and back and I always leave Circle 8 feeling miles better. Ant is very knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain what may be causing the pain and discomfort. He is brilliant at what he does and is also really friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Circle8 is top notch for any niggles you might have, however big or small. Ant and the team are mega knowledgeable, they can feel exactly where you pain might be coming from, release your tension professionally, and even offer follow up exercises and mobility work to treat and prevent further issues. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for sports massage in Leeds city centre.
