 What You Need To Know About Our Massages

 

How our massages work

This page explains how our massage therapists treat at the Living Centre Clinic in Wimbledon and why it is different. Our massage therapy is rooted in clinical precepts that provide a deeper level of benefit. 

Therapeutic Massage

There may be times when you feel in-between “normal” and “injured”. Often it’s at that in-between time that you can avoid developing a bigger problem. Patients often tell me that just before their back ‘went’ they felt out of alignment or they were experiencing some form of tightness or tension

A therapeutic massage is an ideal way to safely release stress & tension before it becomes a problem. Using advanced knowledge of the body, our professional massage-therapists identify and remove the stress-spots that may hold tension. We know that where the tension is, is not always where the problem is. With treatment over a few visits the underlying issue has an opportunity to heal. (Of course if a client is suffering from pain at the same time we always recommend osteopathy instead).

Stress Massage

Physical tension can also be a result of a stress response.  Sometimes we all work long hours or encounter stressful situations.  Releasing tension can be a helpful way to reduce muscular stress, mental stress and aid relaxation. For some clients it can also help promote better sleep.  Perhaps that’s why they’re so many people who prefer a full body massage to conventional stress-management therapy.

Posture Massage

Tension can also arise as a result of poor posture. We can get ‘locked’ into a posture. It can then be challenging to get out that posture – so a vicious circle develops. A prime example of this is the posture we adopt on a PC.   Therapeutic massage is an excellent way of releasing such postures, bringing relief and flexibility, and for many a lifted mood! Physical tension is inextricably linked to the mind. In fact this is a two-way relationship as one affects the other.   By working with soothing strokes or deep pressure-points we can help restore body and mind to better health.

 

Advanced Training

Knowing the body, where to work, how much pressure to apply, and what length of time to work is an acquired skill.  This is where our specialist massage-therapists come into their own.

Beyond Massage

At our clinic I give additional training to our massage therapists beyond their standard massage training. I share my soft-tissue skills as an osteopath and give direction on managing simple strains that don’t always need a qualified osteopath.

This provides our massage therapists with additional skills. My confidence in our team is supported by the referrals I make to our massage team. I have over 55,000 osteopathy treatments personally to my name. So you can be assured that when I send my patients to another therapist, I need to be certain they will receive the same standard of excellence.

The Massage Room

In the massage room, our massage therapists create a special place to relax and be safe in. From the moment you step into the room you will feel the calmness. A short case-history also helps the therapist to work out the best massage programme for you. You can then lie on the massage plinth and relax.

I believe this is one of the best massage centres in Wimbledon, Raynes Park and New Malden areas. I invite you to try for yourself.

As a doctor, I have great faith in Vispi’s professional skills as an Osteopath. Where conventional medical practice and medication was not adequate for recovery from muscle and joint problems. I usually relied on Vispi to improve the condition of my patients, and expedite recovery. I would strongly recommend him to anyone considering alternative therapy.

I initially went to see Marta (osteopath) with a specific back injury, and have continued to see her for two years now... with other ailments and general screenings. Her ability to diagnose subtle issues you didn't know were there, work quickly to resolve them, and provide effective exercises is incredibly impressive!read more

I woke up in a great deal of pain and in desperation I booked a Sports Massage with Magda, it was definitely the right... decision. Not only was the massage excellent but the care and kindness she showed me was just wonderful. In her professional opinion, she felt that I needed osteopathic treatment and took the time to speak to her colleague, Mr Jamooji, about my case. She went the extra mile for me and I shall definitely be returning to see her again. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Magda.read more

Ive been having a bad back and neck for years and years. Jen helped me yesterday get on the road to healing my problem... and Im amazed by her expertise and abilities. I feel very happy and confident that with her help I will sort my back problems out for good. She recommended exercises that I didnt know would help, identified the root of the problem and so I understand more clearly how I can help my body and get the core strength I need to alleviate my back issues. Thank you so much, worth every penny! Edit to this review... several months later my back and neck are so much better. Finally getting back to normal with my health (!:read more

We affectionately call Vispi the “baby whisperer”. He’s been able to connect the dots between what happened to our... babies during their birth, and what’s happening to babies post-birth (feeding issues / discomfort / reflux symptoms etc). He really understands babies and hence knows how to treat them to improve their pain / symptoms / discomfort. We’ve had brilliant results with 2x children and couldn’t recommend Vispi, and his team, more.read more

I cannot recommend Mr Jamooji highly enough. No other Osteopath comes even close to his expertise or experience. I... have seen a large number of Osteopaths as well as other healthcare professionals since i started suffering from chronic back pain 15+ years ago. My back was in such bad shape that I was advised by 3 separate top consultants that I absolutely required surgery. Mr Jamooji is the best Osteopath that I have come across and helpe me to avoid surgery but also to get back to health.read more

I had the most wonderful massage from Magda on a very gloomy day. My shoulders were aching and it was drizzling.... However, after my massage I felt fantastic. Calming music was playing in the background and a pleasantly warm room, resulting in a calming atmosphere which took all my cares and worries away along with my aching shoulders! I can certainly recommend Magda for a professional and friendly approach who will provide the best massage. A guaranteed feel good factor. Thank you Magda.read more

Our little boy is now 8 months and has been seeing Mr Jamooji since he was roughly 5 months old. There were various... concerns we had, a lot of crying, sickness/reflux, caesarean birth. Mr Jamooji has incredible knowledge of babies and why they may be uncomfortable which when explained is fascinating to begin to understand. Happy to say our little one is thriving and Mr Jamooji's work has been a tremendous help in his being a happy, energetic little boy. I would thoroughly recommend parents to take their little ones for a visit.read more

Great osteopath. Was training for the ride 100 and had a persistent pain in my back. Tried a physio, chiropractic... clinic local to me but no joy. 2 visits to Mr Jamooji and my back problem resolved. He really got to the source of the pain quickly, told me what to do at home and fixed me up so that i left the clinic feeling taller and pain free. How do you thank someone that does that for you? Amazing hands. Very professional. A great place to get cured.read more

I had been suffering with shoulder and arm pain for some time, which was impacting my work and personal life and having... tried many physiotherapists, I could not find any relief. A friend recommended Vispi and from the very beginning I knew I was on the right path. He listened with great kindness and compassion, gave very sound and practical advice and his treatments made a difference from the very start reducing the pain and discomfort substantially and allowing me to return to normal. And months later, when my back decided to act up, again I knew I was in safe hands. Vispi is much more than a great osteopath, he truly wants you to improve and is incredibly positive and motivated to get you back to your normal way of life. I cannot recommend him highly enough.read more
