Our remedial massage therapists have a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. Whether you are simply looking for a relaxation massage or something more serious, such as treatment and rehabilitation of an injury - or anything in between - you are in the right place - there is a range of massages to choose from, and specialized techniques tailored to your condition.
Remedial Massage concentrates on specific problem areas to help bring relief to the area. It is recommended as treatment for frozen shoulder, back pain, headaches/migraine and anything else that is localised to an area on the body that is causing discomfort.
Remedial massage assists in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. A range of manual therapy techniques may be employed in treatment, such as: Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy Techniques, Direct and Indirect Myofascial Techniques, and Neuromuscular Facilitation.
Deep Tissue refers to the pressure which is applied throughout the massage - it is exerted using hands, fingers, elbows, palms, and knuckles . Techniques are applied with firm pressure, aiming to provide effective treatment to affect the deeper musculo-skeletal system structures. It is best known to help release chronic tension, soft tissue tension, and pain associated with stress, overexertion, and injury. The massage may include the use of trigger points - these are areas of increased metabolic waste deposits in a muscle, which can cause referred pain or sensations to other parts of the body.
This technique can be contraindicated with certain health conditions, therefore a thorough consultation is required prior to deep-tissue massage. Deep, slow breathing is essential to facilitate relaxation and tension release throughout the body.
