If walking the dog has become too much for your knees, or back pain is getting you down, an ECH Massage Therapist may be able to help. Massage Therapists work to improve joint flexibility and ease tight muscles to alleviate pain and get you back doing the activities you love.

How can an ECH Massage Therapist help?

ECH Massage Therapists are qualified, accredited and highly skilled in working with people who require remedial massage for chronic health conditions or who are recovering from injury.

Whether a physical working career has left you with sore joints, you are recovering from trauma such as a fall or car accident, or you are just not as flexible as you used to be, ECH Massage Therapists can help.

Our Massage Therapist will work with you to identify your goals which could relate to movement, activities or day to day tasks.

Your goals could include a number of things to improve your everyday quality of life such as being able to:

  • be flexible enough to put on your own socks, shoes and tie shoelaces
  • dress yourself without serious shoulder pain
  • walk the dog without knee, back or other pain
  • ease issues related to chronic illness such as Parkinson’s or Diabetes
  • have some pampering time out from being a carer

Each person is different, so your goals may be different to the ones shown here. These are a guide to show how massage therapy could help you. Some people see a Massage Therapist simply to relax and unwind, not because of a specific health issue.
