Covid 19 Update
Please note that I have closed again in accordance with advice re close contact services and the advice of my professional association, the Association of Physical and Natural Therapists.
Linda Black is a BTEC level 6 Advanced Clinical Massage Therapist offering her unique blend of therapeutic massages in her clinic in Fakenham, North Norfolk. Specialising in clinical massage, she offers relief from complaints such as lower back pain, sciatica,frozen shoulder, neck and shoulder pain and tension headaches. She is also North Norfolk’s only registered Scarwork therapist working on scars either from post operative or accidents.
Utilising Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, combined with Deep Tissue work and stretching techniques, she works through and assists with client pain. Remedial massage focuses on the muscle groups indicated in the client’s pain pattern to release tension and knots in the area to provide relief. By utilising the stretching techniques taught at the end of the treatment at home, clients feel involved and engaged in their own care, thus helping to speed up the healing process.
“Having started Tidal Therapies in 2009 offering swedish massage, I very quickly became frustrated that so many clients were seeking treatment for apparently chronic pain conditions but that I didn’t have the techniques and training to be able to help them gain the relief they so badly needed. I therefore commenced my training with the Jing Institute of Advanced Clinical Massage in Brighton and in Feb 2013 gained my qualification in advanced clinical massage. I also qualified in clinical Pregnancy Massage.
Since then I have continued my studies attending advanced myofascial release workshops, the inaugural British Fascial Symposium, qualified in the Neil Asher Technique for the treatment of frozen shoulders and rotator cuff injuries and trained in Musculoskeletal Alignment Technique with the pre-eminent American osteopath Eric Dalton. These studies took me to a week long course with Eric in Costa Rica in Nov 2014. I have also completed training with the Upledger Institute in Cranio Sacral Therapy and am Reiki Level 2 attuned. I am qualified in ScarWork with specialisms in breast cancer scars and hip and pelvic scarring.
In 2018 I graduated with distinction in BTEC Level 6 in Advanced clinical and sports massage (currently the highest qualification in the UK) and qualified as a Scarwork Therapist.
The world of clinical massage and musculoskeletal work is forever evolving as research continues and new ways of working to benefit the overall health of the body are adopted. It is therefor vital to continue with up to date training and I continue to further my training on a constant basis.”
Linda is happy to offer an initial free consultation either over the phone or at her studio to discuss your concerns and establish whether her treatments would benefit you. The treatments are then tailored to your needs – which can be pain relief or the need for relaxation utilising the benefits of hot stones.
