If you were to make an assumption of what we do, you might make an educated guess that we only provide Chiropractic services, as our name suggests.
In fact, what we find makes us special is that we have both Chiropractic and Massage services under the same roof. We have 3 fully qualified massage professionals, each with their own area of expertise providing a full range of massage services.
But first let’s talk about what massage actually is.
Chiropractic is mainly manipulation of the joints and muscles, whereas massage aims to manipulate the soft tissue of the body. Various techniques are applied using the fingers, forearms, and elbows. There are even devices, such as cups, that can be used to aid massage treatment.

What can massage do for you?
When we refer a patient to receive massage therapy we aim to:
- Help manage pain
- Relieve stress
- Prevent injury
- Help you relax
What do we offer?
The way we achieve this is by using different types or styles of massage; Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Sports/Remedial Massage. All of which are offered here at Fullarton Chiropractic Centre. Let’s look at what each of these are and what they offer.
- Swedish Massage Therapy
This is probably the most recognised form of massage therapy. This is known for being a softer method and a more relaxing experience.
- Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
This method has more of an emphasis on deeper pressure on the body’s soft tissue than Swedish massage, aiming to release chronic muscular tension. Often used to treat people who are recovering from accidents and sports injuries.
- Sports/Remedial Massage Therapy
Generally for individuals who have some athletic background or are involved in sports. However this doesn’t mean that your average person can’t benefit from sports massage.
The therapist will not only use massage but will employ various other stretching techniques that will treat the muscles, tendons, fascia and joints.These will aim to lengthen tense muscles to prevent any pain and to allow the body to perform optimally.
We realise that we’ve included a lot of information here and it’s easy to get lost in it all. Don’t worry if you’re not sure of which one is best suited for you, our in-house therapists will be able to guide you as to which one will be of most benefit for you when you come in for your first session, so there is no need to specify at the time of booking.
