WHAT IS TENSEGRITI

Tensegriti is our full body treatment approach we use to reduce pain, improve movement and prevent further injuries. We utilise facial counterstain, a gentle yet powerful hands on technique which helps to restore balance in the body. 

THE TENSEGRITI DIFFERENCE

Our full body treatment approach combines fascial counterstrain with movement training offering a complete solution to treatment.

We work to connect your body by decreasing tension, reducing pain pain, aligning posture, improving range of motion and building strength.

WHAT TO EXPECT

FULL-BODY ASSESSMENT

It all starts with the body scan. We utilise a series of posture and movement assessments in combination with state of the art force plates to effectively identify the source of your dysfunctions.

HANDS-ON THERAPY

Every organ, nerve, artery, vein, muscle, ligament, tendon and lymphatic vessel can spasm as a protective response to injury.

Fascial Counterstrain works to identify the system of restriction and reduce the spasm in the corresponding structure. It's gentle, powerful and a targeted approach to addressing your pain and restrictions.

CORRECTIVE EXERCISE

Once we have decreased tension in the body, our therapists work with you to increase control of this new range of motion using personalised corrective exercises.

FAQ

What Training Do Tensegriti Therapists Have?

We are trained Physiotherapists. In addition to our university qualifications we have undergone extensive training in Counterstrain, Dry Needling and various movement courses.

Can Tensegriti help me if I’m not in pain?

When we talk about connecting your body, we mean it. We suggest don’t wait for an injury to build up. Our modern lifestyle habits of being glued to a chair or couch for many hours a day or in front of a computer screen does not allow our body to work or maintain itself the way it’s supposed to. Add in some weekend warrior activity after a stressful week with very little movement, and you’ve got a recipe for potential future injury and pain. On the other hand, if we take the time on a monthly basis to address your muscular tension, improve your movement patterns, address lifestyle factors, and ensure that we’re dealing intelligently with tweaks and aches before they become a major problem, you’re going to feel better, move faster, and live a longer, pain-free life.

How Do I Choose The Right Therapist For Me?

All of our therapists working within our clinics have gone through extensive training beyond university in order to successfully solve and improve a wide variety of real-world challenges that our clients bring to us every single day. There’s strength in numbers, and the strength of the Tensegriti team comes from the learning and talent development of our therapy team working together. In short, you can’t go wrong with anyone on our team – choose a therapist based on the time that’s convenient for you.

Will I Get Treated During My First Session

Definitely. While we start your initial assessment with a thorough Body Scan and muscle testing, we also find a lot of value in continually re-assessing throughout your treatment, getting you off the table to walk around, assessing postural changes, and ultimately seeking out the root cause of your dysfunction through constant testing and re-testing through your entire program.

Can You / Do You Fix (Insert Injury / Condition / Etc )?

The answer is yes, we have collectively seen hundreds of clients and have experience with many variations of dysfunctional muscular patterns and injuries. If you have anything extremely exotic or have any questions you want answered about a specific condition or injury before coming your first Tensegriti session, feel free to contact us and we’ll connect you with the appropriate therapist who can answer your questions for you.

How Does Tensegriti Differ From Other Treatment Methods?

The uniqueness of Tensegriti starts with the belief that in some way, everything is connected to everything else. Many therapies don’t have a goal outside of working on what hurts and that specific area only. With Tensegriti, we start by looking at the global picture of how your body is ordered and balanced, how your body moves, and how one issue can lead to problems elsewhere. This helps us look strategically and systematically at identifying the root cause of any pain, dysfunction, or areas holding you back from performance improvements. From this point, we work with only manual therapy and movement to create lasting change. Other clinics use machines to get the job done, we don’t.
