Remedial and Sports Massage has a range of healing benefits, making it useful as a healing therapy. Many athletes enjoy the benefits of pre and post event massage, which is helpful in speeding up recovery and dealing with problem areas. You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage.
Massage improves circulation to injured areas, improves lymphatic drainage to remove harmful waste products, stimulates healing, breaks down scar tissue, improves muscle tone and promotes relaxation.
Our massage therapists use a range of techniques including joint mobilisation, trigger point therapy, myofacial release, transverse soft tissue release, deep tissue massage, pregnancy massage and lymphatic drainage. At Durham Family Chiropractic, massage is often used as a complimentary treatment to chiropractic and osteopathy, as part of a wider treatment plan.
