What is Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapists specialize in the treatment of painful conditions of the body using a variety of manual techniques, focussing on the joints and muscles. The therapists also practice in Therapeutic Massage to relax the patient both physically and mentally. 

 

Here at The House Clinics, Bristol, our therapists specialize in the following types of massage to target pain and areas of tension in the body: 

 

Sports and Deep Tissue Massage

This is a firmer massage that is used to help prevent or alleviate painful sporting injuries. It can also prepare the body for sport or physical demands and help to maintain the body’s optimal condition. 

 

Relaxation/Therapeutic Massage

This type of massage is used to relax the patient both physically and mentally using smooth rhythmical movements. The therapists follow the contours of the body, focusing on areas of tension and improving circulation.  

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

This therapeutic massage involves very light pressure and long, rhythmic strokes to stimulate the flow of the lymph fluid and to encourage the release of body toxins. This massage technique can be beneficial to your general health because the lymph system is part of your body’s immune system. It is particularly beneficial for those suffering from arthritis or fibromyalgia, and for the reduction of swelling after surgery.

What Conditions Do We Treat? 

 

Massage therapists focus on the muscles of the body and the effects they have on joints and your mobility. Injured and tight muscles develop scar tissue and fibrous knots that can cause shortening of the muscles, muscle spasm, stiffness and muscular pain that reduce mobility around the joints. Working with you, the therapist will select the best massage technique to relieve pain, improve flexibility and mobility, and increase circulation.

Common Questions

What does a Massage Therapist do? 

Massage therapists use their hands to perform manual soft tissue techniques to increase blood flow and oxygen uptake. This improves the quality of tissue repair.   

How can massage help me?

Injured muscles and ligaments develop scar tissue.  Massage increases the blood flow and breaks down the fibrous nodules in soft tissues, improving joint mobility and flexibility, and relieving pain. Massage is often used alongside other physical therapy such as Chiropractic and Physiotherapy to enhance recovery. 

Which massage type is best for me? 

Your Massage therapist will work with you to select the appropriate and best treatment type for you.
