Discover the combination of massage with chiropractic
At Massage Port Melbourne, Paul Malcoln of the Melbourne Chiropractic Clinic, we employ a range of therapeutic treatments focusing on alleviating muscle tension, stress and dysfunction in the body.
If you’re up for a straight hard, pummeling sports massage of the gluteals, ITB’s, hamstrings and calves we can help you out. Or if you’re after a soothing relaxation massage with long, sweeping massage that will send you into a relaxation bliss zone, that’s no problem either.
Treatments are tailored to assist your specific problem and we typically incorporate a range of different techniques such as MET (Muscle Energy technique), TRP (Trigger Point Therapy), MFR (myo-fascial release), muscle stripping, cross-fibre friction and deep-muscle manipulation.
Incorporates several specialised massage techniques to locate and help ease muscle stiffness and tension in the body. Firm, remedial massage is the best treatment for freeing up adhesions (little knots) in muscles, stretching out strained / tightened muscles and just giving your body a “wake-up” call for the rest of the week.
A full body massage with lots of sweeping and gliding techniques from the head to the feet.
Trigger Point Therapy
The therapist locates and deactivates trigger points, which are often wound-up muscles that have been damaged or are kinked. The major goals are to reduce spasm, inducing new blood flow into the affected area.
Sports Deep Tissue Therapy
A highly effective treatment for clients in running clubs, that visit the gym regularly or compete in sports teams. Vigorous rubbing techniques are used to warm up muscle tissue. Long, deep strokes – through large muscle groups such as the quads and gluteals – can help eliminate toxins and lactic acid from the body.
The practice of dry needling is a common technique in manual physical therapy. It involves inserting 3 to 5cm needles into “trigger points” and is typically used for pain associated with injuries.
