Acupunture & Physical Therapy for Exam Destress programme

Acupuncture,  Shiatsu, Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) & Seated massage

Michael Herron is a physical therapist and acupuncturist, who treats soft tissue aches, pains, strains and sprains, everyday niggles and sports injuries.  His services for the distress programme include:

Seated massage, also called chair massage and acupressure massage, targets the back, neck, shoulders, arms and scalp. The client remains fully clothed. It's very effective for people with back and shoulder issues.

Shiatsu is a traditional form of therapy from Japan. It usually takes place on a mat at ground level. By balancing the flow of energy in the meridians, Shiatsu can relieve many conditions, help prevent the build-up of stress, and restore vitality and well-being. Literally translated as 'finger pressure’, Shiatsu uses comfortable pressure from the thumbs and palms applied to the energy channels and points in the body. Given through loose, comfortable clothing, Shiatsu may also include gentle stretches and rotations of the limbs and joints.

Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin – or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points – to restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself. Scientific studies have shown the potential for acupuncture to be effective in treating many disorders. Acupuncture dates back 2500 year to ancient China and is practiced alongside western medicine in hospitals throughout modern China.  Please note that this treatment is only available for 60 minute sessions

Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is a physical (or manual) therapy specialising in the treatment of soft tissue pain and injury. NMT is innovative in that it combines the best selection of soft tissue treatment from deep tissue massage to manipulation techniques developed by the last century pioneers in osteopathy, chiropractic, naturopathy, and trigger point therapy.
