Conditions We Treat
Pauline first became a patient of Nicola in 1995 when she was at the Alton practice and John became a patient shortly after. We followed Nicola to Fleet Chiro clinic and have remained regular patients to date.
Our treatment comprises general half yearly checkups and the occasional specific treatment for example when John had a number of monthly visits to deal with lower back pain.
We both find that the McTimoney technique suits us very well which coupled with Nicola’s skills has helped maintain our skeletal health over the years. Pauline worked as a secretary and the treatment kept neck tension at bay.
We find that Nicola is easy to deal with, has a warm welcoming manner, a sense of humour and gives confident advice during the sessions, treating accordingly. These are the reasons we always look forward to our regular visits and come out feeling much better.

At FCC, we are primarily a Chiropractic clinic. Massage is used within each chiropractic treatment, however we can offer individual massage therapy upon specific request.
Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage helps to increase your sense of wellbeing, allows for an improved quality and quantity of training, identifies potential problems early on which in turn helps prevent injury and loss of performance.
All of this is very important to an athlete who is seeking to remain injury free throughout their training schedule from the time that they begin increasing their training load to reaching those interim goals to peaking for their optimum performance in their chosen event.
Life stresses are often what leads an individual to seek out this form of massage. It will help to alleviate postural and structural concerns which often cause muscular imbalances.
A deep tissue massage of this type can help with a reduction in musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction triggered by emotional, environmental or occupational causes. A person who has had or is waiting for surgery, who has a systemic illness or physical disability could benefit from a remedial massage to help their individual situation.
During both a sports and remedial massage the aim is to stretch and loosen the tissues, increase the circulation to the localised area which leads to greater nutrition being able to reach the injured site. As a result scar tissue and adhesions that may be present can be broken down and allow healing. Excessive muscle / fascia tension and thickening can be reduced which in turn releases muscular spasms and decreases muscular pain and discomfort.
Regular sports and remedial massage can lead to improved function and rate of healing as the techniques used can help increase lymphatic drainage leading to a reduction in swelling, soreness, stiffness, lactate and fatigue in the muscle. Posture can be improved and muscle balance is often restored allowing for a greater range of motion around the joint and within muscles.
