Regular massages can bring significant benefits to your chiropractic and overall health.

Our team will give reliable advice about how frequently you need to have a massage but it’s often easy to tell for yourself when a massage might be beneficial. If you’re experiencing regular headaches, stiffness and limited movement, or slumping posture, you could benefit from chiropractic massage therapy at our clinic.

If these symptoms sound familiar then make an appointment or enquire with us about how massage can help. We give honest advice about whether you’d benefit from the service.

Types Of Massage

At CQ Chiropractic, we offer a wide range of massage therapies designed to relax the muscles, rejuvenate the body, and ease aches and pains. Massage therapy isn’t one-size-fits-all, and it’s important to choose a type of therapy that’s suitable for your goals and needs. Whether you want to promote healing after a sports injury or release tension across your body, our massage services are perfect for you. Some of our most popular massages include Swedish massage, hot stone massage, aromatherapy massage, and deep tissue massage.

One of the most common types of massage we offer, a Swedish massage is a full-body massage that’s suitable for almost everyone. Swedish massages include percussion, kneading, tapping, rolling, and vibration. The purpose of a Swedish massage is primarily relaxation, as well as gentle stress relief. A Swedish massage can ease joint pain and tension throughout your body, provide relief from depression and anxiety, and even increase blood flow around the body. It’s also a pleasant and relaxing experience, making it ideal for spa days.

A hot stone massage is a type of specialist massage that uses warmed basalt stones placed at particular points throughout the body, including along the spine and in the palms. The stones apply gentle pressure to your body, combining the principles of massage with acupressure to relax your muscles and ease tension. Hot stone massages are both an enjoyable experience and an effective way to ease tension, aid pain relief, and promote sleep.

Aromatherapy massages are relaxing, gentle treatments that are ideal for relieving pain and tension throughout the body. During an aromatherapy massage, your masseuse will use essential oils to create a relaxing atmosphere and infuse your massage with the benefits of aromatherapy. Some of the most popular essential oils to use during an aromatherapy massage include lavender, tea tree, bergamot, cedarwood, peppermint, and ginger.

A deep tissue massage is a specialist type of massage that uses deep pressure to treat aches and pains deep within the muscles. Deep tissue massages involve slow strokes and notable finger pressure, particularly in those areas that you want to focus on. Deep tissue massages are ideal for people suffering from light injuries and discomfort and looking for relief from pain and tension. A deep tissue massage promotes healing via increased blood flow circulation, improves flexibility, and can even help to lower blood pressure.

Therapeutic massages are very popular with pregnant women, particularly later in the second and third trimesters. A massage in pregnancy can help to relieve many of the common aches and pains of pregnancy, including back pain and abdominal soreness. It’s perfectly safe to undergo a massage during pregnancy – just make sure you let your masseuse know when booking your appointment and we can tailor your massage to your needs.

At CQ Chiropractic, we work closely with our clients to decide on a course of treatment that’s suitable for their concerns. Whether you want to promote healing after an injury or just enjoy a relaxing massage in our professional massage studios, we can help. Get in touch with us to book!

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.

While we always recommend booking in advance to ensure your preferred time slot, we try to accommodate walk-ins and same-day appointments. If you’re considering dropping by, give us a call to check our availability for the day.

Your initial visit for massage therapy will typically start with a brief consultation. Our therapist will discuss your medical history, any areas of concern and what you hope to achieve from the session. This conversation ensures that the massage is tailored to your specific needs. Once the consultation is complete, you’ll be guided on how to prepare for the massage. Throughout the session, we encourage open communication to ensure you’re comfortable and to adjust any techniques as required.

During your massage, the primary goal is relaxation and therapeutic benefit. It’s important to release any stress and trust your therapist. Avoid holding your breath; instead, focus on deep and relaxed breathing. Communication is key, so if at any point you feel discomfort, please let your therapist know. It’s also important to minimise distractions, so refrain from using your phone during the session.

The frequency of massage therapy varies from person to person. While some individuals might benefit from weekly sessions, especially if addressing specific health concerns, others find a monthly massage to be sufficient. It’s always recommended to discuss your personal needs and goals with your therapist to get tailored advice.

Certainly! Pregnancy massage is specially designed to cater to the unique needs of pregnant women. However, it’s important to inform your therapist about your pregnancy so the session can be adjusted for maximum safety and comfort.

While many seek out massage therapy primarily for relaxation, its benefits extend far beyond. From helping in the recovery of injuries to managing chronic pain and enhancing overall well-being, massage therapy offers a holistic approach to health.

After your massage, it’s important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This helps flush out any toxins released from the muscles during the massage. Taking a warm bath can also help alleviate any residual muscle soreness. Lastly, ensure you get proper sleep to allow your body to recover completely.

Yes, there are various massage techniques, each designed to address specific needs. We offer Swedish and Hot Stone massage for relaxation, Deep Tissue massage for muscle tension relief and aromatherapy massage for mental well-being as well as pregnancy massage. Your therapist will discuss the options with you and recommend a suitable technique based on your preferences and health concerns.

It’s recommended to avoid strenuous exercises immediately after a massage. Your muscles have just been relaxed and jumping into intense physical activity might lead to strain or injury. Give your body time to recover and enjoy the benefits of the massage.
