Many of our guests receive both care from their chiropractor or osteopath and from a massage therapist. However, we frequently book in New Patients to the centre purely for massage therapy.
If you are unsure about what care you need please ask one of the team and we can advise you.
What is massage?
Massage is a general term for soft tissue therapy that may involve the pressing, rubbing and manipulation of your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage therapy varies from very light stroking to deep pressure. The many different types of massage include these types:
Deep massage. This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
Sports massage. This is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
Trigger point massage. This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energise you.
At Reflex Spinal Health we use the terms Chiropractic Massage and Osteopathic Massage. This is the most common type of massage provided at our centre. It is therapeutic massage that is directly linked to the treatment plan recommended by the chiropractor or osteopath, and this practitioner is co-ordinating the massage therapy with the soft tissue therapist.
