At Watsonia Chiropractic Centre our focus is on remedial massage, although we also offer sports, relaxation and pregnancy massage.
Remedial Massage can be an effective natural therapy as a means of treating and managing many conditions, both as a stand-alone treatment and as a complimentary treatment. Our therapists provide comprehensive remedial massage using a wide range of techniques including myofascial release, muscle energy technique, trigger point therapy, stretching and cupping techniques.
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
Through treatment of soft tissue injuries or conditions remedial massage can be an effective treatment in reducing muscle tension and managing pain.

Massage can promote an immediate feeling of deep relaxation and calm. Through touch massage stimulates the nervous system to release endorphins – the brain chemicals that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones are also reduced, which studies indicate can impair the immune system.
