Clinical Massage Therapy

What is Clinical Massage Therapy?

Massage is the oldest known healing art. It precedes all orthodox medicine and other complementary therapies. It is also one of a number of therapies widely recognised to complement traditional medical treatments, assisting patients in their recovery and rehabilitation.

Clinical Massage Therapy is designed to assist in the healing process and to target muscle imbalance and dysfunction in a holistic way. Think of it as massage – but with a focus on remedial treatment – particularly in the areas where you are experiencing the greatest stress and pain.

Clinical Massage Therapy was developed by Richard Snieg taking elements from many ‘state of the art’ soft tissue techniques. Although particularly effective on neck and back problems, it can be used on all parts of the body and treats many conditions.

This is a complete health and recovery package, incorporating rehabilitation, manipulation and exercise, as appropriate. Each individual is different and each treatment is based on the individual need.

Clinical Massage Therapy is suitable for any age, but any patients under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
