Massage Therapy at Bayside Chiropractic Collective

female massage therapist with clientAt Bayside Chiropractic Collective, we believe in having a whole-body approach to improving your health and wellbeing. Remedial massage can be a great therapy when combined with chiropractic care to help boost your body’s healing.

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury.

Help to Eliminate Pain, Naturally

If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function.

Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position. It can also help to increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas. This will then remove any blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from the injury.

A remedial therapist has knowledge in anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine where to treat patients.


Your first visit will include a thorough consultation and assessment with our remedial massage therapist. We will be able to ascertain your current health status and areas of concern that you wish to improve.

If you’re a good candidate for remedial massage therapy, we can then apply the relevant and appropriate treatment at your first visit.
