My Specialisms

Soft Tissue Therapy is still very much 'hands on'. We use a lot of different massage techniques and, also, a range of treatment options including sports & remedial massage techniques, dry needling, ultrasound, myofascial release, myofascial cupping, kinesio taping, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue release, home rehab and aftercare advice. Soft tissue therapy can very effectively help with muscular skeletal pain, postural related problems or as part of maintenance or training. It is also highly effective for sports injuries, overuse injuries, work related postural problems, during pregnancy or pre & post surgery. Your soft tissue therapist is very experienced with dealing with mobility issues and working with pre-existing medical conditions. Depending on your therapists' specialisms they might suggest a combination of treatments. Hazel Clark is trained is all elements of Soft Tissue Therapy,

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

Your treatment is entirely tailored to you and will include a medical/injury history. Depending on what is right for you on the day your treatment could include a mixture of sports massage techniques. Treatment is always discussed and explained and designed to get you out of pain and back doing the activities you enjoy as fast as possible. Sports massage isn't a set routine, it will be the appropriate treatment for you and your sports/event/life on that particular day. Hazel uses a mixture of sports massage, myofascial release techniques, soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques, trigger point release, medical acupuncture (if appropriate and always discussed prior to use), K-taping and stretching techniques. Some aftercare and exercise/stretching advice will also be given if needed at the end of treatment. Your treatment is entirely tailored to your needs whether you need a general massage as a relaxing and de-stressing treatment or you require some specific work on an area that has become sore and tight and injury prone.
