Massage at The Complete Health Chiropractic Clinic in Salisbury

Massage has been used for centuries to aid recovery from illness, impart relaxation and a sense of wellbeing, it improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow as well as removing toxins from the body.

At the Complete Health Chiropractic Clinic we have a highly qualified massage therapistElizma Lawrence.

South African born, Elizma has gained over 20 years experience in the health & beauty industry working in the USA, Australia, Asia & the UK.

During her career Elizma has developed a combination of therapeutic massage techniques including deep tissue, effleurage, hot stones, Lomi-Lomi, Thai & Jing acupressure methods to promote healing, pain relief & relaxation. This has provided a deeper understanding of how stress, fatigue, muscle tension, fibromyalgia & injury can influence your quality of life enabling Elizma to provide unique treatments based on your individual needs.

Jing is the Chinese expression for the essential fluid or life force of our physical body. It is the most refined "essence of Qi" - the material basis for the body. The Jing method uses acupressure on certain trigger points to relieve pain & soothe aching muscles, working synergistically with our Chiropractic care.

Lomi Lomi massage is Hawaiian inspired. It works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.

Lymphatic drainage aids the filtering action for the lymph nodes alongside specific organs such as the spleen protecting us against disease.  Chronic muscle tension can place pressure on the lymphatic vessels affecting efficient drainage.  Any treatment which relaxes the soft tissue can help accelerate lymph drainage, encouraging muscle relaxation, removing toxin & fluid build to promote optimum health.

Pregnancy Massage                                                                                                    This specialised massage is performed on a customized pregnancy cushion which will provide extra support for you & your baby, easing tension & discomfort around the lower back & hips as they adapt to the many changes during this physically challenging period of new life.

Reflexology                                                                                                                  This ancient holistic treatment stimulates points on the feet corresponding to parts of the body through the sensory nervous system.  When pressure is applied to these areas, it stimulates the movement of energy through nerve channels to the internal organs & glands restoring balance to the whole body.

Remedial Massage
