THE MAIN AIM IS TO HAVE FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT AND BEING PAIN FREE
In addition to many named conditions on the list, the clinical massage will help you in gaining a better functioning body and preventing injuries. As an example, you might have noticed that your feet are pointing out while you are walking, but this does not hurt you. The hurt comes first when your menisci (the cartilage in the knee) have been worn out and you are heading for a knee surgery because the bones in the knee joint don’t sit together as they should. (This is different from a meniscus tear, which is an injury. Big tears need surgery, but small surface ones can be treated without).
If the joint is returned to its normal position, you will gain more strength and stability and should avoid knee surgery later in the life.
For a sports person, it is important that the body performs to its potential. The balance of muscle groups working with each other and firing in the correct order is essential for getting good results. The clinical massage can help to bring back the balance, where it was lost. The balanced muscles don’t get injured, as their strength matches the antagonist group’s.

Sometimes there is no name for your pain, but if you describe it to me, I can gauge whether I think I could help you. When I am in doubt, I will refer out to a person, who I think would be able to help.
Classical Deep Tissue Massage
THE MAIN AIM IS RELAXATION
I will still adhere to clinical and scientific principles about how the muscles best relax, but I am not treating any specific pain as I would with clinical massage. As an example if you wish to have your back relaxed, I will also treat the front of the torso. I won’t ask you to actively participate by moving your limbs or changing your position several times a session as I might in a Clinical session.
As the massage is relaxing, it is a perfect antidote for stress.
Massage helps the blood and lymph to circulate and it boosts the immune system.
When people don’t have any physical complaint they come purely to achieve a very deep state of relaxation.
A successful treatment takes into account your whole being and your life situation.
