Unfortunately, some people have a variety of aches, pains and stresses in their lives that mean they have chronic conditions that require a thorough assessment and individual treatment approach. Using many techniques adapted from the sports massage world but with a more Eastern approach to treatment, clinical massage can bring many benefits to chronic conditions, such as:
- Hip problems
- Carpal tunnel
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Low back pain
If you’ve had an injury that you have ignored and now it is nagging you on a daily basis (repetitive strain injuries typically fall into this category), by focusing on working the soft tissues using a variety of techniques it can help reduce muscular tension, enhance wellbeing and improve posture.
My clients benefit from techniques to reduce adhesions in muscles, re-lengthen muscle fibres that are causing tension, tightness and restricted joint mobility and eliminating pain caused by trigger points. Additionally, massage reduces stress more effectively that some other complementary therapies as it lowers levels of cortisol, a neurotransmitter that increases with increased stress levels.
Going forward each appointment will be broken into three distinct areas:
- Initial consultation by Zoom, WhatsApp, Microsoft Teams or Facetime
- Face to face treatment at my clinic.
- Self-care delivered online or by follow-up email
When working therapeutically, appointments last for 1 hour. This time will now include the time spent during the online consultation and post treatment self-care advice. These normally form part of your appointment time so your hands on treatment time is not reduced it is just pulled out separately from all the other elements that an appointment time would usually include.
A short course of regular treatments usually delivered over a 4 to 6-week period can significantly improve how your body feels and moves.
