Advanced clinical massage

Chronic pain treatment

Advanced clinical massage is aimed at reducing chronic pain and improving range of movement. It releases tightness in muscles and restrictions in the connective tissue that surrounds them. Sessions also include work to pinpoint trigger points, which can cause localised pain or referred pain patterns such as sciatica, numbness in the arm, knee pain or migraine headaches. Other techniques include amma fusion, deep tissue massage and myofascial release.

Advanced clinical techniques can be used for almost any type of pain, including:

Due to the fundamentally relaxing and healing effect of this type of massage, it's also great for emotional stress, anxiety and depression.

If you suffer from a chronic pain condition, the recommended treatment plan is a weekly session for up to six weeks (dependent on the type of of pain), until there's a significant reduction in pain and an improvement in the quality and range of movement. After this the treatments will be spaced at longer intervals and you should eventually only need a maintenance session every four to six weeks to stay pain-free.
