We provide effective rehabilitation through scientifically proven techniques. A typical course of physiotherapy at our clinic begins with a comprehensive assessment in order to identify the source of your problem. We will then discuss with you the different treatment options available for your condition. The first session will include an initial treatment and we'll provide you with tailored exercises as well as an after-care programme, to ensure long-lasting benefits.
Massage in Chelmsford
Alongside physiotherapy, we also offer a variety of massage treatments in Chelmsford designed to ease pain and discomfort, leaving you feeling relaxed. Massages are clinically proven to be effective in the treatment of back pain and associated spinal problems. The benefits of massage treatment are not limited to the easing of tension - it also actively encourages relaxation, aiding those suffering from insomnia.
Our massage treatments are tailored to meet your specific needs. The staff at our Essex-based clinic will address your requirements and draw upon various massage therapy techniques to aid in your recovery, whether from injury, pain or stress. As an example, we might suggest a high-pressure Swedish massage if you’re seeking relief from a stiff neck or sore shoulders, or prescribe a hot or cool stone treatment to help reduce inflammation.
