Pain can occur for a variety of reasons but you don’t just have to put up with it or take increasing amounts of medication in order to control it.

Remedial Massage therapy can assist the body in its own healing processes, where disease or injury has occurred in muscles, connective tissues, bones, joints and internal organs. Massage can also assist healing through its effect on the psychological condition of the patient, increasing a sense of confidence, well-being and relaxation.

Massage also triggers the brain to release natural painkillers, and it also helps to speed the flow of oxytocin. Oxytocin is a hormone that relaxes muscles as well as promoting a feeling of calm and contentment.

Our Therapists provide the highest level of professional Remedial Massage Therapy, Myotherapy & Acupuncture.

We focus on correcting muscular & postural dysfunctions, alignment, health and postural issues with a range of treatments and techniques.

We specialise in treating anyone looking to improve their health and wellbeing, anyone with muscular tightness pain, arthritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, whiplash, neck and back pain, scoliosis, sciatica, headaches or anyone simply looking to relax.

Back Pain

Back Pain 1980 1320 Northside Massage

Lower back pain is a common condition with it estimated that around 70-90% of Australians will suffer from lower back pain in some form at some point of their life. It can be related to number of conditions or diseases which include posture, work place or sporting injuries, scoliosis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and numerous genetic conditions.

Regular Remedial or Myotherapy treatments can help ease some of the muscular pain by using techniques such as deep and soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy, cupping and dry needling. Releasing the large muscles around the spine, gluts, hip flexors and hamstrings, can help improve muscle tone and release pressure on the nerves around the spine which send the pain signals to the brain. Remedial massage will also help improve posture and flexibility, which in turn can reduce pain in the lower back.

Does remedial massage hurt?
For muscles holding a lot tension, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy can initially be quite painful. Most people describe the pain being felt as a “good pain”, as it slowly eases off when the muscles relax.
If the body is not used to deep tissue massage, it is expected to feel a bit like you’ve just done a heavy weight session in the muscles worked on, however they should start to feel a lot better within 1 to 2 days.

The key to recovery for any injury is maintenance and keeping up with regular massage will help keep your muscles in check by improving blood supply and tensions within the muscles.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage 150 150 Northside Massage

All of our Remedial Therapists are trained and qualified to perform Pregnancy Massage.
Benefits include:
Massage increases circulation – bringing more oxygen and nutrients to cells, both in the mother and the developing baby. By increasing circulation, blood pressure may also be kept in check.
Massage can assist with stabilising hormone secretions, especially during the 1st trimester.
The normal discomforts of pregnancy such as: backache, headaches, leg cramps, carpal tunnel type symptoms, and swelling of hands and feet can all be addressed by massage.
The lymphatic system is often overloaded during pregnancy. Massage can assist to move the lymph safely through the body.
As the pregnancy develops, it is quite common to feel varying degrees of discomfort. This can be managed by relaxing tight muscles, toning loose muscles and applying other specialised pregnancy massage techniques.

What is Myotherapy?

What is Myotherapy? 150 150 Northside Massage

Myotherapy takes the traditional manual treatment to the next level by using evidence based assessment and treatment tools to determine the cause of your pain or dysfunction. We aim to treat the cause of your pain and or dysfunction which will inturn treat your symptoms.
A Myothearpist can use a range of treatment tools such as trigger point therapy, myofascial dry needling, joint mobilizations, myofascial cupping, TENS machines, postural assessment and correction, corrective exercises (stretch and strength), sports and KT-Taping, pain education and diet and nutritional advice.
Your initial appointment will consist mainly of a comprehensive assessment and a unique plan to help best treat your complaints. This will usually take 5 – 15 minutes at the start of your treatment.
As there will be an assessment and possible exercise therapy it is recommended you wear comfortable non- restrictive clothing to your appointment such as active wear as restrictive clothing could result in false assessment findings hindering treatment results.
A Myotherapist can help to identify the cause of your complaints and treat the cause rather then just treating your symptoms. We have a special interest in chronic conditions, sports related conditions and getting people back to their best, but this doesn’t stop us from seeing an array of people.
We will work with your goals and what you want out of your treatment. If this means you just want a tension release, or some time away just for you, no problem we can help with that. If you want something a little more comprehensive or some more information on why you keep getting the same injuries or the reason behind your lower back pain or headaches that you have had for years, We have the tools to go that next step and help you to find out the real reason behind the issue.
