Claire McFarlane treats sports injuriesSports and Remedial Massage Therapist

Claire McFarlane Dip IIST, Dip IIHHT

Improving flexibility and performance

Claire offers relief and aids recovery to those suffering from strain or injury.  Using a range of therapies, she is able to hasten recovery time from an injury, improve flexibility and reduce risk of further damage and bring relief to work or leisure related strains. For sports enthusiasts, she can assist with enhancing performance, pre-event preparation and post event recovery.

Claire has been involved in the fitness and sports industry since 1998. This started with her own love of sport - mainly cycling and running.

Claire has undertaken a range of training and has gained a Diploma from the International Institute of Sports Therapy and Diploma from International Institute of Health and Holistic Therapies.

In addition to traditional massage technique, Claire offers Ultrasound Therapy and Interferential Stimulation.

Ultrasound Therapy uses sound waves from a special pad which is moved over the surface of the skin in the region of the injury. The ultrasound waves bring about the production of heat within the tissue. (In most cases this cannot be felt by the patient themselves.) This increase in temperature can increase the extensibility of ligaments, tendons, scar tissue and fibrous joint capsules. In addition, heating may also help to reduce pain and muscle spasm and promote the healing process thus reducing healing time.

Interferential Stimulation uses electrical pulses to stimulate the muscle in a similar way to a normal muscle contraction. This helps to reduce pain, helps the removal of any build-up of swelling and increases the blood flow to the area to help healing.  It can be used to treat a large range of musculo-skeletal injuries including where swelling and muscle spasm are present. It is good for joint pains including back pain, frozen shoulder, knee pains and meniscus injuries and sacroiliac joint pain.

She is a:
