What is Clinical Massage

People of all ages are turning to massage therapy from the relief from the stress of daily life, acute and chronic conditions, as well as to help maintain health and wellness.

Clinical Massage therapy is a method of massage therapy that combines and applies a range of different techniques to reach a specific outcome. The aim is to improve peoples quality of life, increase range of motion, improve their posture  and  always to relax. Many of the techniques used in clinical massage therapy are combined creatively to provide the most effective treatment for the individual.

These bodywork techniques include

Deep Tissue

Cross fiber friction or static pressure using the thumbs, fingers, forearms or elbow is applied specifically to the areas of the muscle that are restricted. The aim is to release the tissue enabling it to resume to it s full length  and functionality.

Soft Tissue Release

This includes a combination of static pressure and stretching. It’s applied to individual sections of a muscle to release constricted areas.

MFR – Myofascial Release

Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds all fibers, nerves, blood vessels, and structures of the body. Restrictions and adhesions in the fascia cause pain and dysfunction of muscles, joints and releasing the fascia either directly or indirectly enables the therapist to work more deeply and effectively.

Hot & Cold

The appropriate use of heat and cold plays an important role in restoring the functionality of muscles, especially after an injury.

Trigger Points

Are constricted areas represented by a hypersensitive taught band within a muscle. They are tender to touch and produce a predictable pain pattern.


Helps the muscles then to resume their full length and functionality. Stretching may be passive where the therapist does the work, or may require resistance or co-poeration from the patient to strengthen or reprogram the muscle.
