Advanced Clinical & Sports Massage

Advanced Clinical & Sports massage is my qualification. I think this may put some potential clients off because  sometimes it conjures up visions of pain and discomfort. That’s not the way I work. Pain in massage is unnecessary and  it can be the brain’s way of letting us know that something’s not right.

I use a warm and heart centred approach that takes full account of all your physical and emotional needs and am committed to working alongside you to get the results you need.

The Jing Method™

I’ve been learning at The Jing School of Massage since 2008 and i’m not finished yet.

There is always opportunities to learn and refresh.

The Jing Method™ of Advanced Clinical Massage is an outcome based system for addressing chronic musculoskeletal pain through a tried and tested fusion of advanced soft tissue and massage techniques.

Effective with most types of chronic musculoskeletal pain including; back pain, sciatica, neck pain, whiplash, migraines, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, knee pain, ligament and tendon issues. As well as systemic conditions like fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and plantar fasciitis.
The method  is a partnership between patient and practitioner. A treatment plan is designed to increase your mobility, agility, and joint range of motion (ROM), whilst focussing on decreasing your daily pain.

The Jing Method™ blends  advanced bodywork techniques from both East and West including trigger point, fascial work, and stretching with a truly holistic approach based on the biopsychosocial model of pain and modern neuroscience.

The revolution that is The Jing Method™ was pioneered by international chronic pain experts Rachel Fairweather and Meghan Mari.
The Jing Method™ is used by massage therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, midwives, GPs, and those interested in a complementary health care model.
