Pain in the neck ? Shoulders killing you ? Lower back aching ?
These are some of the most common complaints we treat on a daily basis at Auckland Therapeutic Massage. While many of our clients are sports people, we also treat a large number of office workers.
Therapeutic Massage Auckland (based at Auckland City Chiropractic) works with a holistic view towards best outcomes for patients. We put together a hands-on treatment plan (which clients may choose to be complimented by acupuncture or chiropractic) to treat a wide range of muscular-skeletal issues.
We combine a wealth of experience from our therapists, to offer therapeutic massage and other massage styles to tailor our treatment to you. We see a range of sports people as well as all the ‘usual’ office work complaints of stiff shoulders, neck pain and occupational overuse syndrome. Prices start from just $47 per half hour or you can take advantage of a concession card, offering discounts of a wide range.
Therapeutic Massage – what is it ?
Therapeutic massage is based on Swedish massage techniques and can often be either of a deep tissue massage or a remedial massage in nature. The aim is to treat your complaint in a therapeutic way and relieve the tension of the muscle by kneading, stretching and manipulating it. As a manual therapy, massage is recommended by many physiotherapists to compliment their treatments and improve results from other therapies.
Does therapeutic massage help back pain ?
While it obviously depends on a proper in depth diagnosis to determine if therapeutic massage helps back pain, it can be said that a majority of muscular conditions benefit from massage and will help. Every person is different though and a consultation is necessary for each individual. We would invite you to book a massage, then evaluate after 24 to 48 hours, which improvements you can observe.
