Blakehurst Massage Therapy –
Remedial, Sports, Deep Tissue And Relaxation Massages For All

If you’re seeking Blakehurst massage therapy , then you’ve come to the right place. At Blakehurst Chiropractic we provide a wide range of massage therapies designed to regenerate, recuperate and relax you. So if you have a niggling muscle injury, are looking to prevent injury when participating in a sporting activity, or are simply looking to de-stress, then talk to us about our sports, deep tissue, remedial and Swedish massages.

So what exactly is massage and what are the different types?

In essence, massage therapy is the adjustment of the body’s muscles using the hands which in turn can:

• Help alleviate pain
• Improve circulation
• Strengthen and tone muscles to prevent injury
• Increase relaxation
• Relieve stress
• Aid general wellness and wellbeing and even,
• Help to improve overall posture

While Swedish massage is a gentle massage designed to promote complete relaxation and is similar to the type you would find in relaxation clinics and beauty spas, sports massage uses more firm techniques designed to reach muscles in a deeper way. Primarily this involves a number of muscle release including trigger point therapy, cross-fibre techniques, and deep tissue work.

Remedial massage therapy, on the other hand, is the gentle release of tendons, ligaments and connective tissues in addition to the muscles, designed to assist rehabilitation from injury or pain.

So why choose us for your Blakehurst massage therapy?

While you can, of course, go to any beauty spa or clinics for a massage, it’s fair to say that these are primarily relaxation based. Eg – massages that are designed to take away the stresses and strains of the day or week while promoting a feeling of wellbeing. Sports and remedial massage on the other hand, require a different skill set and training – Our team is experienced in these massage types that are specifically designed to strengthen and condition muscles to achieve better performance levels, and/or to alleviate strains and pains while promoting healing.

Aside from this, chiropractic wellness focuses on the musculoskeletal system and as such those who practice these techniques are highly trained in the workings of muscles, tendons and neuromuscular disorders. Therefore, patients can rest assured that there is no one better positioned to carry out a massage therapy, than our highly experienced Blakehurst team.

Here’s how we can help!

Our highly skilled massage therapists have the ability to tailor a range of massage techniques depending upon your need. Whether this is part of your rehabilitation from injury program, conditioning and strength training allowing you to participate in the sport you love with optimal function, or as part of a relaxation exercise, we have a good understanding of how to make massage work for you. This includes:

• Deep tissue massage to help relieve chronic muscle tension.
• Trigger point massage to bring about a reduction in pain relief.
• Myofascial release technique which applies gentle pressure to the connective tissue to restore motion while eliminating pain.
• Building muscle strength by enhancing metabolism, thus ensuring muscles get the right amount of protein and nutrients.
