OUR ALLIED HEALTH

Clare Dooley
Remedial Massage Therapist

As a Remedial Massage Therapist, Clare enjoys working with people from all age groups and backgrounds. She understands the importance of reclaiming your lifestyle following setbacks, whether that be surgery, cancer treatment, injuries or simply tight muscles and pain that prevent you from doing what you love.

Clare will assess where you need treatment and what may be causing the pain. Each massage treatment will be specific to your body, age, lifestyle and needs. A combination of techniques including Remedial, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy and Myo-fascial Release will be used to get an effective and longer-lasting result.

This tailored approach is excellent for releasing patterns of chronic tension throughout the body, which arise from poor posture and time spent in front of a computer and is an effective treatment for chronic conditions resulting from stress, overuse or injury.
