Who doesn't love massage?

Here at Harrisdale Chiropractic, often people think we only have Chiropractor’s available. Whilst this is our main therapy offered, we firmly believe in a multimodal treatment approach and offer many other healthcare services.

So have you heard about our Remedial Massage team? Have you been to see them yet? If not, when was the last time you had a massage? Maybe you’ve never had a massage, or in particular a Remedial Massage from a trained professional? If this sounds like you, let us help you begin your amazing discovery in to Remedial Massage.


So where do we even begin! Massage is such a big industry, and there are so many terms thrown around. Deep Tissue. Remedial. Swedish. Relaxation. Trigger Points. It can all be a bit confusing if you don’t know what you are looking for.

How about we just start with what we offer, and what you can expect from our Remedial Massage team! Firstly, all of our Remedial Massage Therapists are professionally trained, allowing you to claim Private Health Rebates from their treatments. Once you have the privilege of meeting one of our Therapists, they will have a discussion with you in regards to your areas of concern, and follow this by an examination. Once your needs have been established, they will be able to progress to treatment.


So why might you come in to see consult with one of our Remedial Massage Therapists? There can be any number of reasons, or particular conditions that would constitute a visit. Here is a small list of reasons you might want to make an appointment.

  • Back Pain

  • Headaches

  • Muscle tightness

  • Neck Pain

  • Postural Concerns

  • Jaw Pain

  • Shin Splints

  • Hip Pain

  • Tennis elbow

  • Postural imbalances

  • Flexibility Issues

  • Management of injuries

  • Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

Now to the actual mechanics of the treatment. Remedial Massage can be a general term that encompasses multiple soft tissue therapies. However on the most part, therapists apply mechanical pressure to muscle fibres, with specific pressure, duration and direction. So what benefit does this have? Below we have just named a few!

  • Decrease Pain

  • Aids in restoring mobility and flexibility

  • Assists managing sports and soft tissue injuries

  • Stimulates blood flow and oxygen

  • Releases tension & stiffness
