The Pain Care Clinic offers a unique combination of techniques from sports massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and other massage and manual therapy disciplines to create tailored complementary therapy programmes for individual private clients.
Pain Care Clinic therapists are professionally trained in anatomy and physiology but we do not diagnose, prescribe drugs, or offer surgery or other medical treatment.
Our therapies are non-invasive and sensitive to the needs of the client. We work to ensure a complementary therapy programme that delivers positive, measurable results (and may even be relaxing!).
Unlike relaxation massage, we work on soft tissues deep within the body using techniques that involve gentle physical movement. We do not use massage oil or wax, as our techniques generally require direct contact with the skin for maximum effectiveness. Client modesty is preserved at all times.
Communication is an important part of what we do and we find that:
- talking about their condition and what to expect from our session often helps clients relax and feel better
- we need feedback to ensure that therapy programmes are working for our clients
- feedback helps us to ensure that our gentle myofascial release and massage therapy keeps pain within acceptable boundaries
In addition to therapy sessions and programmes The Pain Care Clinic can provide you with general information about your injury or condition, and exercises to do in between sessions to help you help yourself. This may include suggestions for improving posture or working practices.
Amanda Oswald is trained in display screen equipment (DSE) risk assessment so she can also discuss changes to your workstation with you or your employer.
Our aim is to work with you to help ensure that you can live your life as fully as possible. We call this our unique ‘ACT-I’ve’ approach to help you help yourself:
A = assessment
C = communication
T = therapy
I’ve = ‘I’ve got something to do in between therapy sessions’
