REMEDIAL MASSAGE


Remedial Massage is a treatment for specific injuries or muscular dysfunction. The massage is tailored to address the specific needs of the individual, in order to improve or ultimately resolve the underlying problem.

  • Remedial Massage may consist of a combination of deep tissue, trigger point therapy and stretching techniques, and is great for that nagging pain that just won’t go away.

    Skillfully used, Remedial Massage therapy can assist the body in its own healing processes, where disease or injury has occurred in muscles, connective tissues, bones and joints. Massage can also assist healing through its effect on the psychological condition of the patient, increasing a sense of confidence, well-being and relaxation. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has specific clinical advantages to assist in medical, rehabilitation therapeutic program.

    One of the immediate benefits of Remedial Massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because the massage prompts the release of Endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones – such as Adrenalin, Cortisol and Norepinephrine – are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.

    Remedial Massage is greatly beneficial and can reduce symptoms by relaxing the tension in the muscles, stimulating the flow of blood through the muscles, breaking down and eliminating toxins, enhancing oxygenation of the brain and relaxing the nervous system and mind.

    Remedial massage can holistically address the whole body to ease out tension, and repair damage to muscles, joints, tendons and soft tissue.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE


Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. For those who like firm pressure it feels good and it is beneficial to your health.

  • When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. The purpose of the massage is to “un-stick” the fibres; it aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either going with or across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia. A Deep Tissue Massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly.

    Deep Tissue Massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. That said, you should feel better than ever within a day or two. It is important to drink plenty of water, do some light exercise or have an Epson salt bath afterwards to help eliminate the toxins from the body.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY


Trigger Point Therapy involves applying pressure (within the Client’s comfort zone) to Trigger Points, in order that the whole muscle can then relax and return to its resting length.

  • Trigger points are areas of tenderness in a muscle. These can sometimes be felt as a lump when the muscle is massaged. On a microscopic level, trigger points are made up of segments of muscle fibres which remain in their contracted or shortened state. These develop due to sustained use of the particular muscle in various postures or with various sporting activities. Trigger Points are so named as they can trigger an area of referred pain when they are compressed. These areas of pain do not correlate with the nerve supply to the overlying skin.

    Trigger Point Therapy involves applying pressure (within the Client’s comfort zone) to these trigger points, in order that the whole muscle can then relax and return to its resting length. As a result of this release, any metabolites and waste products that have accumulated in these muscle knots are then moved into the circulation. It is important that after a massage, adequate water is consumed to flush out the circulatory system, otherwise one can experience headaches, dizziness, tiredness or muscle tightness. Trigger points can also be treated by regular stretching.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE


Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle form of massage used in aiding the immune system. Lymphatic Drainage is helpful in detoxifying our bodies as well as stimulating our immune system. It can also help with reducing swelling or fluid retention.

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle form of massage used in aiding the immune system. Lymph begins as the fluid surrounding the cells in our bodies which contains waste products, toxins, enzymes, hormones, white blood cells, proteins and plasma. It may contain bacteria and viruses. This fluid is channelled via the lymphatic system consisting of lymphatic channels and ducts and lymph nodes back into the blood.

    Lymphatic Drainage is helpful in detoxifying our bodies as well as stimulating our immune system. It can also help with reducing swelling or fluid retention.

HOT STONE MASSAGE


Hot Stone massage is an ancient therapeutic form of massage which utilises hot stones and massage techniques. Using the natural healing powers of temperature helps create a calming and deeply relaxing experience.

  • Hot Stone Massage uses the combination of massage, hot stones and warm oil. This allows for deep relaxation of muscles.

    Our massage therapists can customise this service to include relaxation style and/or remedial massage, depending on what you require.

    Benefits of Hot Stone Massage:
    The therapeutic use of heat is beneficial in:

    -Improving circulation and lymphatic flow in the body effectively reducing fluid build-up, toxins and waste stored in the body
    – Rehabilitation of injuries in the post-acute stage of healing as the increased blow flow effectively brings oxygen, nutrients and proteins that are essential for healing.
    – Reducing blood pressure
    – Decreasing stress and encouraging release of endorphins
    – Decreasing joint stiffness,
    -Reducing pain and relieving muscle spasms,
    – Increasing extensibility of collagen tissues
    – Oedema

PREGNANCY MASSAGE


There are many benefits to having regular massage during pregnancy.

  • 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.
    • Many women are reluctant to take pain medication throughout the pregnancy. Massage can help with the pain normally associated with pregnancy, thereby reducing the need for medication use.
    • 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.

    Our Therapists are trained and qualified to perform Pregnancy Massage.

REFLEXOLOGY


Reflexologists believe that the foot is a map of the body. The application of various techniques of pressure to the foot, on zonal pathways of the map, will reflect in the body by not only relieving pain but, in the majority of cases, assisting in relief to the underlying cause. Working on the feet can improve nerve, lymph and blood supply, detoxing congested areas and reducing pain.

  • Where there is a problem within the body, the corresponding reflexes can reveal sensitivity when pressure is applied. Working with these reflexes will bring about changes in the body, a reduction of symptoms, as well as a reduction in the sensitivity of the reflexes.

DRY -NEEDLING


Dry needling is the use of fine filament needles placed non-invasively into the region of a trigger point. The treatment aims to achieve a local twitch response that releases muscle tension and, therefore, pain.

  • While there isn’t a non-confronting way to describe this treatment, dry needling often causes less discomfort than regular deep tissue massage, with most clients unable to feel the needles penetrate the skin. Our dry needling therapists are professionally trained and highly experienced, meaning you can rest assured that you are in very good hands and will achieve the best results possible

MUSCULOSKELETAL


MST (MUSCULOSKELETAL THERAPY) is suitable for anyone with a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, including acute sporting injury, surgery rehabilitation, headaches, joint pain, neural pain and back pain.

  • During the treatment a MST may use some of the following techniques:

    Myofascial release
    Deep tissue massage
    Cupping
    Joint mobilisation
    Trigger point therapy
    Dry needling and electro dry needling
    Muscle energy technique and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
    Neurodynamic mobilisation
    Exercise therapy and stretching

CUPPING


Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine, which increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed.

  • This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
