What is Remedial Massage?

Massage is a skilled technique of manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body with therapeutic benefits to the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems by removing the products of fatigue and inflammation. It can compensate in part for a lack of exercise and muscular contraction in persons who through injury, illness, lifestyle or age are forced to remain inactive. Peter Fleetwood, Peter Ashenden and Linda Jackson are the qualified Massage Therapists at the St Agnes Chiropractic Centre.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage has both physiological and psychological advantages. It helps to balance the body's natural mechanisms. Massage is not a modern concept, it is the earliest form of healing through touch, developed over thousands of years and surviving into our modern society.

What Problems Can Be Treated by Massage?

  • Muscular and Nervous Tension
  • Injuries
  • Muscular Cramp
  • Poor Circulation
  • Poor Digestion
  • Poor Elimination of Wastes and Toxic Debris
  • Damaged Tissues
  • Poor Muscle and Skin Tone

Lymphatic drainage techniques help to reduce edema (fluid retension) of the extremities. Sports massage lengthens and strengthens tendons, giving more flexibility and power with less chance of injury. Massage helps maintain fluid balance and relieves excess tension.

Who Can Be Treated?

Almost everyone, from infants to the elderly, whether for the alleviation of pain or distress or to attain the pleasant, relaxed feeling of well being that massage produces.

For maximum results, the use of expensive essential oils are used to promote emotional and physical harmony and balance.

Massage appointments can be coordinated to take place prior to your chiropractic treatment.

Did you know we also offer Dry Needling?

Dry Needling is the use of solid filament needles inserted through the skin and into the muscle to release painful myofascial trigger points. Dry needling results in the deepest tissue release allowing for improvements in movement, pain and flexibility. This treatment has been shown to increase blood flow to the affected area, relaxing muscle spasms and stimulating nerve fibres to inhibit the pain response.
