Specialist treatment for chronic pain
When pain persists it starts to affect everything in our life, including our sleep, relationships, wellbeing and work. Chronic pain is pain that persists even once damaged tissue has been repaired.
So why are we still in pain? It is our body’s self-protection system. Fascia, our body’s connective tissue locks down to prevent further damage. That’s why our soft tissue feels locked and hard. Fascia has a rich supply of sensory receptors. This is why the pain can feel unbearable and like we are carrying a tonne of weight.
Therapies that aim to soften the fascia and release fascial restrictions, including myofascial release and trigger point therapy can help to restore elasticity in the fascia, calm our over-sensitised state and reduce pain. These techniques form the foundation of the Jing Method™ of clinical & sports massage.
Pain issues that benefit from clinical massage
Low Back Pain
Back pain can be debilitating. Thankfully, however, it is rarely serious and can usually be treated quickly and effectively with a combination of advanced tissue massage techniques.
Shoulder pain can become chronic particularly when we are stressed. Adhesive capsulitis (Frozen shoulder), bursitis, and shoulder tendinopathies can all benefit from myofascial release treatment.
Neck & Shoulder Pain
Neck and shoulder pain can persist especially for those sitting or working in a stressed position for long periods. Muscles including the upper trapezius, levator scapula and rhomboids can particularly benefit from clinical massage treatment.
Sports injuries including runners' knee (IT band syndrome) and plantar fasciitis, can persist due to fascial restrictions and overuse. A combination of sports massage, trigger point therapy and sports stretches can speed the return to full training.
Persistent headaches can often be attributed to tight (short) muscles of the neck. This can be due to stress, prologued tension such as sitting at a desk, or previous trauma, such as a car accident. Direct work to these muscles can help to relieve these headaches.
Whilst we are still learning about the causes of systemic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and myofascial pain syndrome, massage that helps to calm the central nervous system can reduce flare ups and be of benefit.
Your clinical massage therapist
I’ve lived with chronic low back pain all my adult life. Many painful and fruitless therapies eventually led me to something that actually worked: myofascial release and trigger point therapy.
The magic of that treatment inspired me to study advanced clinical massage for the treatment of chronic pain with the Jing institute.
Myofascial release and trigger point therapy form the foundations of the Jing Method™ of clinical massage. I now love helping people to relieve their chronic pain and start enjoying life again.
