An adjustment is a skilled manouvre which is applied to a spinal or peripheral joint in a quick but controlled pressure into a specific direction. The aim of the adjustment is to restore and correct a movement dysfunction in our skeletal system. Most people experience instant relief after an adjustment as it removes impingements, alleviates pressure, and increases joint space.
Soft tissue release can be translated to massage, however we provide specific releasing techniques to targeted muscles, tendons, ligaments or fascia. Below are a few examples of soft tissue 'releases': Trigger point release | Active and Passive release | Cross Friction.

What is Psychology? Psychology is the study of the human mind and its wide-ranging functions and influences. Psychological research advances our understanding of human emotion, personality, intelligence, memory, perception, cognition, attention, and motivation, as well as the biological processes that drive these human functions and behaviours. In essence, psychology studies individuals and groups to better understand how people, communities and societies function and ways to help them thrive. https://psychology.org.au/for-the-public/about-psychology/what-is-psychology
