Millions of people seek chiropractic care or massage therapy to relieve or prevent pain and limited mobility.
These two complementary therapies, especially in combination, form a powerful healing approach to relieve pain and increase your body’s mobility and resilience. Over time, they offer a uniquely effective way to support your ongoing vitality and well-being.
Regular massage can release chronically contracted muscles and fascia, improving the balance among muscle groups and promoting healthful circulation. Your body will be more resilient in the face of daily stresses, less prone to pain and injury.
Our Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems. Gentle kneading and stretching lengthens contracted muscles and fascia. Techniques such as sustained pressure, ice massage and stretching can release trigger points. Sprains, strains and adhesion can be addressed directly with massage techniques that stimulate healthy separation and realignment of injured fibres.
This service focuses on determining the underlying holistic causes for many musculoskeletal & myofascial dysfunctions and then developing a treatment program designed to; decrease pain, increase range of motion and restore balance to the soft tissue structures of the body.
This form of treatment utilises numerous specialised techniques including;
- Neuromuscular trigger pointing
- Myofascial release
- Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
- Positional release

This process usually includes postural analysis and orthopaedic assessment where the client may need to remove thick or restrictive clothing so that relevant landmarks of the body frame can be located and observed during a specific range of motion and restriction tests.
Relaxation massage focuses on helping you recover from the stresses of your day. The technique for this massage is designed to relax and soothe muscle aches—it won’t relieve chronic pain or underlying ailments. Relxation massage can help to improve peripheral circulation, skin tone and appearance.
Dry needling is a technique for the treatment of pain and movement impairments.The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. Dry needling involves a thin filiform needle that penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues.
