If constant pain keeps you from doing the things you love, then this workout is for you. Developed in America, this system based on a bodywork process called Rolfing and takes place on a mat, not a massage couch. You will be taken through a system of stretches that target the body’s connective tissue which shortens and tightens through injury and overuse. The more you want to get out of pain and the harder you work the better the results – which are almost instant.
It is a unique, effective, and safe two-person healing system aimed at keeping your body flexible and pain-free naturally. These stretches create space in your muscles and joints to provide freer movement, which are typically treated with hydrocortisone injections.
Workouts are very focussed, so generally last no more than 45 minutes, and involve you lying on a mat fully clothed while the therapist uses their foot to anchor your tissue in place while you perform specific movements. You need to be able to get up and down off the floor, and it’s important tell us if you are taking any blood thinners such as warfarin, have any implants, patches, or devices such as a pacemaker, or have had any surgery. It’s also a good idea to avoid taking painkillers before you come so you can judge the amount of pressure and effort you need to use in your stretches accurately. If you have any doubts, questions, or concerns just ask us.
You remain fully clothed during a Rossiter workout, and you can wear any clothing which allows you to move completely freely as you will be the one carrying out the stretches. We also recommend, like with any workout, that you bring something warm to put on afterwards.
No, in fact we recommend you keep on moving after a workout, so your body has a chance to integrate the stretches into your everyday movements. When you come for your workout try to park your car further away so you must walk and avoid lengthy periods of sitting throughout the rest of your day.
Rossiter workouts aim to put space back into the body structure, so it is no longer squeezed, bulged, or trapped, making it an effective way to improve your range of movement and posture. Typically, Rossiter is used to tackle neck, shoulder, knee, hip, and elbow pain, together with conditions such as sciatica, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, and tennis elbow.
WOW! Kerryanne is magic. There is no other way to describe her. I've suffered with shoulder issues for 8 months. Physio hasn't touched it. After just ONE session with Kerryanne, I can finally get both hands on my hips again (necessary when you have three young children!). Thank you thank you thank you!!!
I first went to see Kerryanne about my clicky jaw a few years back which I'd had since childhood. The hospital said the only option was to cut through the muscles in my face and wash the joint out. Thinking this was quite brutal and extreme, someone suggested Kerryanne. I went along to see her and after a few sessions, she fixed me purely through massage - glad I didn't listen to the doctor! Since then, I have continued to see Kerryanne for a sports massage once a month, occasionally switching to Rossiter. She is basically a legend! She has stopped my clicky jaw coming back and offers health tips and advice. She's super friendly, very knowledgeable and always professional. She's amazing at firm massage and the products she uses smell amazing. I couldn't recommend her enough. If she ever changes jobs or location, I don't know what I'll do! Thanks for your help as always Kerryanne - you're a star!
I’ve been seeing Kerryanne for years, having Rossiter, reflexology and for general sports massage. She always gets the right spots and I feel loads better and relaxed after treatments.
