Massage has been enjoyed for thousands of years. Massage therapists are experts in working with soft tissues to relieve pain and improve relaxation of muscles. They are trained in a number of different techniques to achieve maximum results. Within the centre the massage therapists can offer remedial, sports, and relaxation massage depends on your individual needs.
The centre uses mainly ‘prescriptive massage’ as opposed to beauty therapy massage to work alongside regular Chiropractic or Osteomyology care. This helps us to achieve quicker and more long-lasting results by improving circulation to allow your body to repair and renew and work on minimising muscle memory for those with more chronic issues. This ensures optimal results allowing the body to function at optimal levels.
Chiropractors and Osteomyologists work on the deep structure of the body including the spine and nervous system. Massage therapists work on the muscles nearer the surface to ensure all aspects of the body come into alignment and are well balanced. Working on the muscular system aids the corrections being made to the spinal system. Without massage, when the spinal corrections are made, tight muscles may pull on the spinal system returning it back to its dysfunctional position again quickly meaning that the adjustments don’t hold in place so well.
Massage has been found to help with many different conditions including anxiety, digestive disorders, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, stress, headaches, and soft tissue injuries to name just a few. In our centre, your Chiropractor or Osteomyologist will suggest massage therapy when they feel the time is right within your personalised care journey, however if you wish to find out more about it, then ask your practitioner on your next visit and they will be happy to discuss it with you.
