At The Claygate Clinic we offer a variety of massage styles because we know everyone is different and for some a deep massage works well and for others a more gentle and relaxing massage is preferable.

Before the massage there will be a short consultation with the therapist to determine if there are any particular areas that need attention or if you have any health complaints.

Myofascial Massage

The body contains Fascia which is a connective tissue. It is strong and wraps around and protects every structure in your body. However it can get tight and this tightness causes restrictions and at times pain. This treatment allows the Therapist to stretch and loosen the fascia, helping with muscle tightness and improving mobility and reducing pain. NOTE, It does not feel like your average massage, in that no oil is used. The techniques require the therapist to lift and hold the area, using sustained pressure to allow the fascia to soften. These holds can take many minutes to feel a shift in the tissues. However it is relaxing and many patients report feeling a deep sense of release after a treatment due to its effectiveness in breaking down adhesions and allowing blood to flow to tight areas of the body. A must try!

Therapeutic Massage is a combination of Relaxation Massage and Remedial Massage to not only relax your whole body but at the same time, work through some of the muscle issues or “tight spots” you may be experiencing.

Massage therapy may also improve your circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products or reduce swelling. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.

Massage therapy induces a relaxation response, which lowers your heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure; plus boosts your immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage or MLD is a light touch therapy, it sits within the Massage category as it is hands on, but because you are encouraging the free movement of Lymph that sits towards the surface of the skin, no deep pressure is applied. There's a specific sequence to lymphatic massage, its light pulsing techniques encourage Lymph nodes to drain, like emptying a glass so you can refill it again.
It is rhythmical and soothing.
It is thought that anyone wanting an overall immune boost would benefit, it can be used safely post surgery, cosmetic or otherwise and is often recommended by medical professionals.
Those suffering with water retention (oedema) digestive issues, and swelling could benefit. People explain they feel lighter and more energised after a session.

if you are undergoing medical care, particularly for Cancer treatment this method can be used but will need to be approved by a Consultant

1 hour lymphatic massage £75

Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial cupping uses silicone cups that are placed onto the body to create a vacuum. This lifts the connective tissue under the skin away from the muscle which is very effective at releasing the fascia which can become tight and restrictive.

These cups can be in place anywhere between 2 to 10 minutes and can bring extreme redness to the surface of the skin as toxins are brought to the surface to be drained away by the lymphatic system.  This also brings an increased blood supply to aid with healing bringing much needed oxygen and nutrients to the area.  The red circular marks can take between 5 to 20 days to disappear depending on the individual.

It can be a little bit uncomfortable initially depending on how tight the fascia is and the therapist will work with your pain level to ease your body into letting go of the tension in an effective way.
