Remedial Massage
DSC04996.jpg

Remedial Massage

A targeted treatment for pain and injury. Ideal for people with specific ailments or tightness due to repetitive strain injury (RSI). This could be from a workplace incident or twinging a muscle at the gym. If you are unsure, please get clearance from your doctor prior to a massage.


Not to be confused with deep tissue massage that pushes deeper in the muscle with firmer pressure, the therapist may use deep tissue techniques after understanding the issues causing pain and injury.


Some other gentler techniques may be required to remedy. Your range of motion may also be tested during and after the session by the therapist.
 

Private Health Fund rebates apply if you are covered for this in your policy.

Session times are available in 30-mins, 60-mins and 90-mins slots. If it is your first consultation or you have more than one area of concern, please book for at least 60-mins to enable sufficient time to run through your case history and treatment plan.

Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu Massage

This pressure point massage is derived from Japan and uses the practitioner’s thumbs, palms and even elbows to apply pressure to the body.

 

This treatment also includes flowing stretches and gentle rotation of limbs and joints helping in structural alignment and muscular release. This form of massage works on the principle of the body being self-healing thereby moving the energy from parts that are abundant to those that are lacking.

Sessions are available in 60-mins slots.

BENEFITS:

  • Can be done over clothing so no oil is applied to the client’s body

  • Restores the balance of energy to promote health and improves the body’s healing abilities

Please inform the therapist prior to coming on what stage of the pregnancy you are in and if there are any contraindications such as preeclampsia, hypertension, high blood pressure, or preterm contractions.

Sessions are available in 60-mins and 90-mins slots.

BENEFITS:

  • Reduce anxiety

  • Reduce swelling

  • Relieve muscle aches and joint pains

  • Improvement of sciatic nerve pain (common for those in late pregnancy)

  • Improve sleep

Dry Needling

Dry needling specifically targets and restore muscle function, by improving tissue healing and restoring normal tissue function. This is usually combined during a remedial massage to treat the targeted area to accelerate pain reduction, healing and restoration of normal tissue function.

 

Single-use, sterile and fine needles are used on trigger points (areas of knotted or hard muscles) to release the knot and relieve muscle spasms.
 

Some common side effects are temporary soreness of the area, slight bleeding or bruising (but quite rare).


Acupuncture on the other hand works based on inserting the needles along meridians (energy channels in the body) and believes that the illness is the result of blocked chi (energy force within the body). So removing the blockages helps return the energy flow to a state of balance.

Sessions are combined during Remedial Massage. Please indicate in notes when booking.

BENEFITS:

  • Relief for muscular pain and stiffness

  • Easing trigger points may improve flexibility and range of motion

  • Good to combine with remedial massage to treat sports injuries or even fibromyalgia pain

Cupping

Cupping

The therapists puts special cups on your skin that create a vacuum.


This lifts the skin, fascia and muscles and stretches them out for a few minutes. This helps to reduce pain, inflammation, improve blood flow and stretch out the area. Depending on the skin sensitivity, there might be some redness of the skin due to the blood vessels expanding when the vacuum is formed over the skin. This normally disappears in a few days.

Sessions are combined during Remedial Massage. Please indicate in notes when booking.

BENEFITS:

  • Helps relieve bronchial congestion caused by allergies and asthma

  • Helps with reducing muscular pain and inflammation

  • Helps with anxiety and depression

  • Helps with high blood pressure

MLD

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

This is a great form of massage to reduce swelling, pain and scar tissue.
 

This is a very gentle technique that involves the manipulation of the skin and moves the lymph just beneath it towards the discharge points, i.e. the lymph nodes. One may get an accumulation of lymph from trauma, post- surgery, removal of lymph nodes or even from allergies.

 

Suitable for people post-op or those diagnosed with lymphedema or lipoedema. People
with acute sinusitis or tinnitus can benefit from MLD too. In some cases, a compression garment is recommended or taping is done during the treatment.

BENEFITS:

  • Deeply relaxing

  • Decongestive

  • Improves wound healing and scarring

  • Detoxifying

  • Pain relieving
