A very common pattern we see in most of our massage and chiropractic patients at Back to Basics is headaches and neck pain. Headaches range in type and severity, presenting in different levels of pain to each person. Some forms of headaches are a sign that your body maybe out of balance. This can lead to muscles, such as the one the ones in your neck to spasm. In our clinics our massage therapists aim to reduce this muscle tightness and spasms. We offer a range of massage techniques, which our massage therapist apply to their patients.

What is Remedial Massage, and how does it compare to Relaxation Massage?
Remedial Massage assists in managing pain, injury and rehabilitation. This specific type of massage has a variety of manual therapy techniques that can be implemented to during treatments. These can include deep tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular facilitation and direct and indirect myofascial techniques.
Remedial massage involves a deeper massage to relaxation massage. It aims at targeting problem areas and tight muscles to assist in relief. However Remedial Massage can be blended with relaxation techniques to help superficial muscles soften. This then allows for our massage therapist to work on deeper muscles.
