Clinical Massage

Clinical Massage

Clinical massage is a treatment that manipulates the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the body for a specific therapeutic effect. It is a deep massage to create conditions the body needs to return to normal health after injury or to treat musculoskeletal disorders. A clinical massage is designed to increase blood and lymph flow so that the healing process begins at a cellular level.

A clinical massage therapist will treat the body holistically, tracing the issue as far back as possible to its original cause. This enables healing not only of the symptoms but of the cause of the problem.   A clinical massage consists of different massage techniques and movements according to the client’s needs and response to treatment. The application of appropriate pressure into the soft tissues is a significant part of the massage and is carried out with good communication between therapist and client. Clinical massage should work within the client’s comfortable pain threshold.

Although clinical massage aims to fix an issue/injury rather than solely to relax the client, it is seen to improve sleep and increase mobility.

Based on the fact that soft tissues respond to touch this type of massage is one of the most effective ways to prevent and treat muscle pain, soreness and injury. The list below shows some conditions which can be helped by clinical massage:

  • Body aches
  • Stiffness
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Myofascial pain
  • Achillies pain
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Pain in middle of back
  • Muscle strain
  • Back spasms
  • Sciatica
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder blade pain
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Aching muscles
  • Chronic pain

It is recommended that a clinical massage session lasts between 60-90 minutes

A course of 1-6 sessions at regular intervals is initially advised. Following that maintenance/prevention sessions are recommended approximately every 6 weeks depending on what your body is telling you.

Please contact the practitioner directly for their charges.
