Massage Therapy Gladstone

John Ryan, an internationally known massage therapist & instructor joined the team at CQ Chiropractic / Central Queensland Chiropractic in order to offer his excellent massage therapy services to clients in Gladstone and surrounding areas!

Commonly referred to as purely for relaxation, this is definitely not the case. You may believe that having a massage is ideal for back pain or shoulder pain, but you may not realise just how useful a professional chiropractic massage in Gladstone can be for a variety of different health concerns.

In order to understand exactly how massage could help you, reach out to CQ Chiropractic Centre and let them show you the lesser-known benefits of this treatment.

Health Benefits of Massage

Massage To Reduce Anxiety

  • If you are under a lot of stress in your day-to-day life, then massage therapy may be able to help you reduce anxiety and other mental health worries such as depression.
  • A massage can reduce the amount of cortisol, a stress hormone, and increase serotonin in order to regulate your mood and anxiety.

Massage To Sleep Better

  • A common problem for customers who come to CQ Chiropractic Centre is sleep disturbance.
  • There are lots of reasons why you might struggle to sleep, but massage therapy can really benefit you and improve the quality of sleep that you experience as well, so you get more relaxation and benefit from a genuine good night’s sleep. 

Massage To Boost Your Immune System

  • If you are suffering from regular minor infections such as coughs and colds, then you might benefit from having a massage.

  • It can stimulate the production of the immune cells that help to fight off infections, as well as stimulating other systems to remove waste from the body.

Massage To Lower Blood Pressure

  • A large number of Australians suffer from high blood pressure from a variety of different causes.

  • It can be a serious condition, but massage therapy from CQ Chiropractic Centre can really benefit you and help you to overcome this health condition.

Massage To Reduce Stiffness & Inflammation

  • There are a surprisingly high number of people in Australia with muscle stiffness and joint problems that means that they have a limited range of motion and reduced flexibility.

  • Massage can help you to increase your mobility, strengthening muscle tissue and boosting circulation.

  • After a massage, you should be able to move more easily than before but please keep in mind, you may require multiple sessions to see an improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patients often have lots of questions about the massage Gladstone residents experience when they visit CQ Chiropractic.

We’ve put together answers to the most commonly asked questions, ensuring you know what to expect when you attend your massage appointment.

Therapeutic massages can be carried out on the back, arms, legs, neck, or head. The part to be massaged depends on the therapeutic effect required.

For example, a massage to help relieve anxiety is frequently carried out on the back and/or neck and head, whilst a massage with the aim of relieving the discomfort of tight muscles will be carried out on the affected body part.

As part of the assessment process, we will confirm with you which body part will be massaged during your appointment.

The part of your body to be massaged will need to be uncovered. Patients are never required to fully disrobe.

For a back massage, women will usually be required to unfasten their bra, to enable the therapist to reach the entire back.

If you have any concerns, please speak to our team about attending with a partner/friend, or having someone present during your massage.

If you are uncomfortable at any time, please speak up and we will do our best to accommodate you.

The speed at which patients feel the beneficial effects of a massage depends on the individual patient, as well as the condition being treated.

Patients who want a massage to promote sleep, for example, may find that they go home and manage a good night’s rest after a single session.

If massage is being used to promote healing following an injury, it may take a few sessions before beneficial effects are noticed.

Generally, massages are well-tolerated and have few side effects. As part of your assessment, your therapist will discuss any individual issues you might have, which may mean some forms of massage are more beneficial than others.

Massage is a therapy that can be tailored to suit individual requirements. This means that massage can be used to good effect in people of all ages and with a wide range of pre-existing health conditions.

Generally, massage isn’t recommended if you have an acute illness (for example, a cold or fever), an acute (recent) injury, or when under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

HOWEVER, if you do have any concerns, please address them at the time of booking.

In some cases, an oil used as part of a massage can be a useful addition to the treatment.

Our team will ALWAYS discuss your individual preferences with you prior to implementing anything. Whether it be adding pressure into another area, adding additional pressure or using oils etc. 

If at any point, you feel uncomfortable, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If you need any further information or have any additional questions, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.

At CQ Chiropractic, we value our patients and are committed to giving them the high-grade treatment they deserve, optimising the chances of an improvement in troublesome symptoms. Call (07) 4978 5100 to book or for further details.
