Massage Therapy Clinic

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. Massage therapy is an umbrella term for a variety of massage techniques including deep tissue massage, sports massage, Swedish massage and clothed massage.

What is massage therapy

Typically used as a standalone treatment for people whose problems are not chronic, massage is also very beneficial for stress and tension, fatigue, general aches and pain or a ‘feelgood’ lift.

When used in combination with chiropractic adjustments or osteopathic mobilisation it can improve the effectiveness of the adjustments by relaxing the patient and reducing temporary discomfort of treatment.

In a shorter session the therapist will typically focus on one area of the body where tension or discomfort has been identified – typically the neck and shoulders, lower back, or legs. In a longer session they may do a whole-body massage. A variety of ‘strokes’ from deep tissue massage and expansive strokes to lighter touches may be used.

Massage therapy is not a protected title in the UK and there is no specific designated training course to undertake or regulator. Typically massage therapists hold a diploma qualification although degree level qualifications are available. All massage therapists in the Core team have a high level of qualifications and experience in massage and usually have further training in related fields (e.g. personal training, acupuncture).

How we work

Multi-disciplinary patient-centred healthcare

Lots of clinics have different healthcare professionals under the same roof but they don’t tend to collaborate fully or share care with patients. They also don’t have clear and proven care protocols which have been tested and refined to provide the best possible results, and value for time and money for patients. At Core Clinics all our clinicians and therapists work in an integrated way, adapted to the needs of each patient. So, when you make a first appointment with anyone in our team, you’ll have access to everyone in our team – and we’ll clearly signpost to you who you should see and what you can do to help yourself too. We’ve developed and refined this approach for over 15 years and helped over 13,000 patients.
