WHAT IS CLINICAL MASSAGE?
Clinical massage is not a single technique but a style of massage which incorporates a large scope of modalities such as myofascial release, acupressure, lymphatic drainage, Swedish massage, trigger point therapy and sport/deep tissue techniques with hot stones, stretches and structural integration. The ultimate focus of this type of massage therapy is the functional outcome: The success of the massage session is mainly measured in terms of symptom relief, whether it relates to e.g. pain relief or improvement in posture.
WHY CHOOSE CLINICAL MASSAGE?
Clinical massage is very effective in relieving pain in the body caused by injury, chronic postural problems or other chronic body aches and pain. Advanced clinical massage primarily addresses chronic pain problems, for example arthritis, bad back, bad neck, RSI, fibromyalgia, herniated disk, IBS, tendinitis and tendonosis. Chronic pain is one of the biggest problems in our society: 30-40% of UK and US population suffers from chronic pain. Advanced clinical massage therapists deal with people who have been living with pain for years and may have seen an osteopath or physiotherapist in the past with no improvement in their pain levels.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CLINICAL MASSAGE?
Medical massage can help patients to relief pain, recover from sports injuries, rehabilitate from orthopaedic surgery, stimulate the immune system and reduce stress.
