Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy for injury treatment, pain relief and relaxation

Massage therapy is the practice of applying manual pressure to the superficial and deeper layers of muscle using the hands, forearms and elbows.

Massage reduces muscle pain, enhances flexibility and promotes relaxation to aid in the healing process.

At Velca, we employ therapeutic massage as part of the healing process; it helps to speed recovery by reducing scar tissue, enhancing the removal of waste products and improving blood circulation throughout the body. Massage therapy is also used for relaxation and a variety of other health conditions such as:

All of our Massage Therapy is performed in a professional setting. Clients are treated while lying on a massage table with non-treatment areas remaining covered for patient privacy and respect. We see massage as an important part of the pain treatment process; we take care that every client feels comfortable during their time with us.

If you’re suffering, massage should be considered to help you break free from pain permanently. At Velca Health Centre in Howick, we can organise a consultation to decide what kind of massage would be appropriate to alleviate your discomfort and aid the corrective healing process. Therapeutic massage is just one aspect of our unique Velca Method of pain relief.


Correct – Relax – Strengthen

At Velca, we approach pain with a three-step method that aims to correct, relax and strengthen the body – supporting good health and providing permanent solutions rather than temporary fixes. Through a mix of chiropractic and massage therapies alongside a strong focus on fitness training and great nutrition, you’ll find that the Velca Method is by far the most effective to ease suffering and inspire healthy living.


Chiropractic – Through chiropractic care, we aim to correct spinal dysfunction, bad posture and habits that lead to pain. The chiropractic services we offer are the first step to identifying problems, alleviating suffering and breaking free from pain.


Massage Therapy – Helping you to relax, loosen the muscles and find relief, massage therapy is our second step that improves circulation and works pain out of the body. Relaxing is a key part of eliminating pain while it paves the way to improve your overall health and well being.
