Massage Chinese Massage can be done with oil on skin, or through clothes. We may use Chinese Massage, Deep Tissue, Japanese, Trigger Point Therapy or Swedish Massage techniques. Whichever may benefit you the most.

How much do we know about massage therapy?

A lot of research on massage therapy for various conditions has been carried out, but some of the research hasn’t been of high quality, and the mechanisms by which massage therapy has its effects aren’t well understood.

What do we know about the effectiveness of massage therapy?

Research suggests that massage therapy may help relieve several kinds of pain, but in most instances, the evidence is not strong, and massage may provide only short-term relief. Massage may be helpful for anxiety and depression in people with fibromyalgia, cancer, or HIV/AIDS. Massage therapy may help premature infants gain weight, but it hasn’t been clearly shown to have benefits for full-term infants.

What do we know about the safety of massage therapy?

The risk of harmful effects from massage therapy appears to be low. However, there have been rare reports of serious side effects.

Massage may provide relief from chronic pain, tension or injury.¹

Chinese medicine is considered an essential service as a registered profession and we are able to remain open. However, we are now ONLY permitted to provide face to face care “if the absence of, or delay of this care, would result in a significant deterioration in the patient's functional independence necessitating escalation of care.”
ie.- To avoid a requirement for specialist input/review
- To avoid an increase in care needs and/or alternate accommodation
- To avoid a hospital admission or emergency department presentation
If you feel you meet this criteria & would like to book a F2F appointment please contact us via reception@freedomchinesemedicine.com.
