What is a Clinical massage therapy?
Clinical massage is an assessment and treatment of a specific dysfunction and
using two or three modalities rather than just one. This massage differs from others due to the process. Initially, the therapist performs various tests to assess what causes your pain, which muscles are not functioning correctly and other check-ups that will help to tailor a treatment plan that will suit you. Depending on your current state, this massage might combine different modalities using stretching techniques, joint mobilisations,MET,IASTM, kinesio taping techniques, cupping, heat/ice contrasts and other modalities along with light or deep tissue elements to resolve the problem. The clinical treatment requires a constant participation from the client in different stages of the process. It is important to constantly communicate to the therapist about your state, share the feedback about the treatment to modify it accordingly. Often this type of massage does not include the full body massage and it’s very specific therapy to resolve a problem.
