Massage from Sykes Verwey Centre
If you feel tense or are experiencing muscular aches and pains as a result of stress, over exertion or some kind of sport’s related injury, massage therapy can really help.
We often recommend massage to complement your chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic and massage are complimentary therapies. A chiropractor works to rebalance the alignment of the spine and restore normal nerve function, while a massage therapist helps relax tight, knotted muscles.
Sykes Verwey Centres qualified massage therapists are experienced in both deep tissue and sports massage. They will be able to fully assess your needs and provide the best, most appropriate massage therapy for you. Your Chiropractor will normally recommend having more focused soft tissue work done alongside your treatment if required. It is great to release tension within the body to help restore your normal movement patterns and relieve referred pain from muscle trigger points.
Types of Massage
The Centres massage therapists specialise in two types of massage; deep tissue massage and sports massage. These are similar in that both involve manual stimulation and manipulation to relax your muscles, which can help alleviate pain.
Sports massage – as the name suggests – tends to be more focused sports-related issues such as improving performance and flexibility.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage also works to help relieve stress, boost circulation and reduce tension and toxins.
Massage & Chiropractic
