About massage therapy

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being.

As a collaborative part of the recovery process, massage therapy can help create positive change following physical trauma, accident or surgery.

It has proven to be beneficial in chronic pain management of neck, shoulder, back or other joint pain. The London Clinic has a dedicated clinical massage therapist specifically trained for these therapies.

Massage therapy can be used effectively to:

  • Improve mobility
  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce pain
  • Promote and improve the healing process
  • Address immobility issues post operatively
  • Stimulate blood supply

Our physiotherapy team provides a wide range of treatments to patients including:

Clinical massage therapy

Myofacial release

Myofacial release is a specific form of physical therapy that affects and releases facial restrictions throughout the body to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Sports and remedial massage is a deep form of soft tissue massage coupled with specific techniques tailored to treat the stress, tension and fatigue that occurs through occupational, recreational or sporting activities.
