Massage is practiced in all cultures across the globe and is well known for both its therapeutic and relaxing benefits. Massage therapy can help ease aching muscles, release stress and tension, increase blood flow and circulation, assist with lymphatic drainage, as well as with mobility and general well being. Massage treatment is done by hand and specific techniques are applied depends on your individual case. The different types we offer at Gentle Care Chiropractic Norwest include:
Remedial massage (or therapeutic massage) is done to target your key areas where muscles and soft tissues are in dysfunction. Whether as a result of sports injury, work injuries, or general aches and pain, remedial massage uses targeted pressure to ease myofascial trigger points, relax soft-tissue adhesions, help scar tissues, increase lymphatic circulation, and the metabolism of lactic acid. This is great for active people, athletes, sports people (including cyclists, swimmers, tennis, baseball, basketball, cricket, etc), gym goers, as well for people looking to improve their posture.
Relaxation massage (or stress relieving massage) is focused on melting the stresses of daily life away. Thus, the treatment is done with a gentler approach to calm and restore balance to your body and well being. Relaxation massage uses soothing pressure to wipe away tension areas, tight muscles, and stressed joints. Deep breathing is encouraged to help maximize your treatment benefits. This type of massage is great for anyone that experiences stress at work, home, or in day to day life.
Pregnancy massage is great for mums-to be and as well as mums who have just had babies. Pregnancy is a stressful time both physically and emotionally and thus your body benefits from additional support. Our pregnancy massage is done with both mum and bub in mind to assist the body and mind with the changes it goes through, before, during, and after birth.
Our massage therapists can combine one or all of the above massage types to suit your needs. Please speak to our massage therapist direct to tailor a plan to your liking.
