Why Choose Evolve Massage?

Evolvemassage has been the business name of Clare Anvar MSc, since 2004. Whether you have niggling aches and pains or your illness has been life-changing, I offer clinical therapies to improve every type of physical & emotional pain.  I will help you gain control over your symptoms, manage your pain more effectively and take your power back.  For many conditions, there is an unrecognised connection to the lymphatic or immune systems, which are not working properly. There is often a link to stress, anxiety, grief & bereavement, which can all have a devastating effect on health. Sometimes, cancer treatments can result in long-term, unwanted side effects. I have extensive experience in all of these areas and can support you to feel better.

Alongside my private practice, I began with an HIV charity for 4 years, before becoming an NHS complementary therapist in Cancer Services at University College Hospital, London. After 3 years, I left to work with people suffering post-traumatic stress and anxiety disorders. I then moved to Horder Healthcare where I specialise in recovery from orthopaedic, cosmetic and cancer surgeries. My qualifications are very varied. They include a BSc(Hons) Health Sciences: Remedial Massage & Neuromuscular Therapy and an MSc in Complementary Medicine. My CV is available on LinkedIn.

Clinical Therapies

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

MLD is a gentle, soothing massage technique that powerfully stimulates the lymphatic system to remove toxic by-products, inflammation and fluid retention. It effectively relieves pain, swelling, bloating & congested tissues. It stimulates immune function & digestion.

Remedial Massage & Myofascial Release

Remedial massage is a toolbox of techniques used to reduce muscular pain and tension. Myofascial release restores free movement of the connective tissue, in areas that have been restricted by injury, poor postural patterns & a build up of scar tissue.

Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping is applied after massage to hold & support a different muscular & postural neutral. This allows your brain to integrate the corrected position &  lessen pain. Taping stimulates and supports the lymphatic system. It can also effectively and quickly reduce swelling, bloating, bruising and speed the reduction of inflammation.

Long-Term Pain; Stress & Anxiety

Pain, which has been present for longer than a few weeks, usually has a complex cause; often related to stress or anxiety. While this sounds unlikely, stress causes toxic chemical changes in the body, which intensify pain, disrupt sleep patterns & lower your resistance to illnesses. My therapies get to the root of your pain

Cancer Related/ Lymphoedema

Treatments for cancer (surgery, radiotherapy & chemotherapy) can cause some unpleasant side effects. I offer specialist therapies to detoxify, reduce neuropathy caused by chemo, free cording & relax movement restrictions caused by radiotherapy. Lymphoedema can be treated with MLD & compression.

Inflammation/ Autoimmune Disorders

The recent acknowledgement of a 'new organ called the interstitium' will hopefully raise awareness for all inflammatory conditions, which respond so well to MLD & myofascial release. Overactive histamine, 'fight, flight or freeze' responses and overstimulated nervous system reactions can all be calmed & balanced.

Fibromyalgia/ME & Post-Viral Syndromes

Known for years as 'yuppy flu', these debilitating disorders are still poorly understood. They can be made worse with hormonal fluctuations & imbalances, stress, over exertion or anything perceived as a threat, including massage that is too deep. MLD to detoxify, boost & regulate the immune system is very beneficial.

Lymphascial Kinesio Taping

As well as influencing the neuromuscular system, kinesio taping also influences the myofascial and lymphatic systems (together forming the name lymphascial).  The myofascia or interstitium, is the area between the skin and the organs. It is like a fatty, fluidy yellow onesie, which maintains a watery environment between the cells so that the exchange of […]

Kinesio Taping

What is Kinesio Tape? Kinesio tapes are elastic, therapeutic tapes, which were originally invented in the 1970’s by Korean chiropractor, Kenzo Kase. He found the non-elastic tapes that were available, did not allow injuries and joints to mobilise. This led to muscular wastage and longer healing times. Kinesio taping is probably best known in the UK […]
