Why Is Advanced Clinical Massage Different?
The causes of joint and muscle pain can be complex. Lifestyle, occupation and injury can all contribute to dysfunction and bias in the working of the body. This can lead to long term, chronic pain and restricted movement. Clinical massage therapy treatments are designed to address these issues. In addition to a targeted consultation the approach integrates the following techniques:
Hydrotherapy (Heat & Cold)
Manual therapies such as deep tissue & trigger point.
The idea of adapting skills and knowledge from a range of soft tissue and bodywork technniques was developed by the JING Institute in Brighton. The objective is to bring massage skills to a clinical level and to address all the body tissues involved in causing pain or restricting movement.

Not sure if massage therapy is right for you but would like to find out. Book a free 30 minute assessment and we'll tell you what the techniques can (and can't) do. If we're not right then we'll try and point you in the right direction.
50 MINUTE DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
These 50 mins deep tissue routines are ideal for general muscular tightness after higher levels of activity or as part of preparation for a sporting event. Usually covers the upper body (head, neck & shoulders) or lower body (glutes, hamstrings, calf and quads).
This 1hr 25 minute session includes taking your details and medical history to ensure that massage therapy is appropriate. This is followed by a postural assessment, a check on range of motion and some palpation to determine what is happening in soft tissues. A treatment plan is then agreed and some initial manual therapy will be given.
FOLLOW ON TREATMENT
This 1 hr session is usually part of the treatment plan and may focus on more specific areas as well as the introduction of various stretching techniques. Self help and home exercises may also be given to maintain progress and recovery.

What Is A Free Assessment?
If you think that massage therapy could help with your problem but are unsure, simply make an assessment appointment. It takes about 20 minutes and we'll tell you if massage therapy treatment could help you to recover, or if its not likely to be effective we'll also tell you that and your assessment will be absolutely FREE!.
How Is A Treatment Carried Out?
Massage therapy is carried out on a well padded couch and towels are used for covering and warmth. To assist the massage techniques, mediums such as wax or oil will be applied. For some treatments the session may started with some 'dry stretching' before a massage medium is applied. If appropriate hot or cold packs may also be used during a treatment along with instruments such as a friction roller or ball.
What Should I Wear?
You can come for a massage therapy session in ordinary clothes and will be asked to remove various items depending on the area of treatment. Loose clothing is often more helpful and sports shorts are convenient if you are having a treatment to upper leg areas.
Is There Parking Available?
Limited parking spaces are available at the Chesham and Princes Risborough clinic addresses. Public parking is also available within 5 minutes walk of each. Free on street parking is available within the immediate area at the Hornbeam Clinic.
We understand with a busy life its sometimes unavoidable to cancel a treatment. Please give 24 hours notice for a cancelation or we may not be able to refill the booking. Late cancelations and no shows usually incur a charge.
Whats different about JING trained therapists?
The JING Institute train therapists in Advanced Clinical Massage that is outcome based rather than 'experience' based like spa type therapies. JING methods and protocols are dedicated in particular to people who are living with long term chronic pain conditions and musculo skeletal disorders. Like disciplines such as physiotherapy and osteopathy, clinical massage therapists will keep notes on treatments and progress. In addition they use range of motion tests and benchmarking of pain levels to measure progress.
JING training requires an in depth understanding of anatomy so they recognize the structures beneath their hands. Combined with good palpation skills to assess the state or texture of soft tissues, each therapist is encouraged to develop a 'listening touch'
These are some of the key aspects of advanced clinical massage and what treatments are designed to do.
Improve range of motion.
Reduce impact and pain levels.
Take an holistic approach to treating a person.
Use a fusion of Eastern and Western techniques and philosophies.
Work effectively to resolve chronic pain conditions
Fusing ancient techniques with modern understanding.
Chronic pain is often complex but humans have been trying to find ways to deal with it for thousands of years. The effectiveness of these ancient techniques has been known for a long period of time. Combining these skills with our modern scientific knowledge of anatomy and research, provides the therapist with a broad 'toolkit' for treatments. Underpinning the JING method is the aim to achieve the most effective outcome for you in the shortest number of treatments.
