A remedial massage is a type of Swedish massage that focuses on specific problem areas in the body (shoulders, knees, neck, back, hips, feet, arms, etc.). These may be any areas you have been experiencing pain, decreased motion or decreased function.

The treatment will involve a pre-assessment followed by targeting massage techniques and these may include; deep tissue, trigger point to work to break down muscle adhesion as well as joint loosing and stretching.  Each treatment is designed individually to your needs and may include an ongoing treatment plan if required.

Remedial Massage is a perfect massage to release those tight spots, reduce pain, increase your range of motion, improve posture, or to assist in easing chronic pain from conditions like sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches and more.

Working alongside other healthcare professionals remedial massage can assist in the rehabilitation and recovery from injury or surgery.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.

The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints), and breaking down the adhesion found in these layers, allowing for reduction in tension and increased mobility of the muscle and joints, as well as increasing circulation and inducing relaxation.  Perfect for those tired aching muscles from working at a computer, or after long car drives.

If you are requiring a deep tissue massage, please book in a remedial massage, as deep tissue is a main component of remedial massage.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is massage that enhances mechanical performance.  The treatment can be pre-event, post-event, during competition, training and conditioning as well as restoration and rehabilitation.  Sports massage aims to increase the body’s health and vitality while reducing the incidence of sport related injuries. 

Sports massage can help to enhance an athlete’s flexibility and strength, as well as assisting the athlete to remain injury free during performance, train without discomfort during the training and conditioning sessions, aid in recovery after performance and enhance the cool-down period reducing the onset of muscle soreness and fatigue.

HOT STONE MASSAGE

Hot stone massage is an ancient form of massage that combines the use of hot stones, oil and Swedish massage.

Designed to give you a deep relaxation, alleviate pain, increase circulation, reduce stress, promote calmness and give release to to tight muscles with less discomfort than a deep tissue massage.

Hot stones are not only used to promote a deep relaxation, they can also be used for therapeutic and remedial massage.

Smooth basalt stones are warmed in a temperature controlled water bath. Some stones are then placed on key positions on your body to promote wellness, soothe muscles and open up the energy pathways. Others stones are used during the massage to work deep into the muscles to loosen adhesion’s, reduce pain and tension and restore ease of movement to your muscles and body.
