Massage Therapy

MassageWe offer a variety of types of Massage therapy, to support your Chiropractic care, providing remedial massage, sports massage, and Swedish massage.

This is a new service we are offering as massage perfectly assists the healing potential of chiropractic. Our massage is Chiropractic led and there is close communication between your chiropractor and massage therapist to discuss treatment and what areas to focus on to compliment your overall Care Plan.

However, we frequently book in New Patients to the clinic purely for massage therapy. Again, you will get a full assessment and our massage therapist will consider an appropriate care plan for you and your needs.

If you are unsure about what care you need please ask one of the team and we can advise you.

If you have never tried massage, learn about the many possible health benefits and what to expect during your massage therapy treatment.

What is massage?

Massage is a general term for soft tissue therapy that may involve the pressing, rubbing and massage of your skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Massage therapy varies from light stroking to deep pressure.

The many different types of massage include these types:

  • Remedial massage. Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem.
  • Sports massage. This type of massage is geared towards people involved in sporting activities to help release wastes products left behind by strenuous repetitive exercise. It can also aid in recovery and help treat injuries.
  • Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.

At Connect Chiropractic we use the term Chiropractic Massage. It is therapeutic massage that is linked to the treatment plan recommended by the chiropractor, and this practitioner is co-ordinating the massage therapy with the soft tissue therapist.
