This training, coupled with her past experiences as a Registered General Nurse has given her a sound knowledge and understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the body all well as the skills and techniques needed to focus on the different musculoskeletal issues that could arise.
What to expect at a Session
Alison’s approach is to focus on achieving specific outcomes such as relieving pain and improving flexibility as quickly as possible. This can usually be achieved in 1-6 sessions. Each session is client led and adapted to meet your individual needs. Due to this, no two sessions are the same. Furthermore, Alison will give you strategies to help yourself between sessions, giving you back some control over your condition and helping to speed up the healing process. This may include stretching or strengthening exercises or activities to improve your balance or proprioception. Monthly maintenance sessions may also be recommended to help keep a problem under control, this is not always necessary and will be discussed with you during the course of your treatment.
Clinical massage combines techniques such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue massage, hot and cold stones and active and passive stretching. Clinical massage can also be very relaxing and is great at reducing overall stress levels.
