Advanced Clinical Massage
Pain is the body's way of telling you something is wrong! Are you suffering from aches and pains or seeking faster recovery following injury or surgery? Using the most up to date and effective techniques I aim to support and speed up your body's own repair mechanisms.
Many people have the misconception that remedial and deep tissue massage is all about the "no pain, no gain" factor and if the practitioner goes deep and hard enough the pain and muscle tension will go away, this is not the case.

Advanced clinical massage works in a holistic way so I aim to treat you as a whole person not just your symptoms, aftercare may be discussed with you which may include stretches, exercises and relaxation techniques which allows you to be in control of your own health and pinpoint the cause of your pain and discomfort.
