A combination of chiropractic care and massage can be extremely powerful.

The massage offered at The Parker Clinic is holistic in nature. Our Massage therapist, Sarah Hoare, believes massage should be something that is done with someone rather than to them.

Effects of holistic massage

Customised sessions, using a variety of deep tissue work, stretching, mobilising, and lighter touch can have a profound effect. It's not unusual for people to feel smoother, lighter, more comfortable, stronger and more connected after a treatment.

What to expect

Each session begins with a conversation in order to establish how you are feeling and what you need at that time. Sarah will always ask some questions, listen fully, suggest a treatment and begin only with your agreement.

Deep tissue and rehabilitative massage

Sarah is very flexible with her approach to massage. If you need more of a rehabilitative approach to your treatment then Sarah will be able to deliver this. The chiropractors will often refer you for a massage with a specific goal in mind. For example, this may be easing muscular tension that is associated with a spinal condition, or rehabilitation following a sports injury. Sarah uses the massage to help the healing process.

It is possible to book in for a massage without previously seeing a chiropractor. You do not have to wait for a referral from a chiropractor.
