There is nothing routine at the Wells Clinic: everyone is treated as an individual, with careful diagnosis followed by a tailored treatment process that includes clinic-based sessions and a personalised schedule to follow at home with exercises and specific self-help techniques. There’s more about our approach here.
When the body is injured — acutely, as in an accident, or chronically, over a period of time — the muscles go into spasm and the fascia restrict to protect the body. Even when the body has begun recovering, the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia may not release completely and this is where clinical massage can help rehabilitate, releasing stiffness, tightness, stopping spasms and restoring normal ranges of movement.
Clinical massage is an umbrella term covering a range of techniques which relieve symptoms and accelerate the body’s ability to heal itself. These include hot stone therapy, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, soft tissue release, and hydrotherapy. You’ll find more information about all these on our FAQs page.
