This type of massage can be used for general relaxation of the musculoskeletal system as well as being directed at specific problem areas – thereby improving recovery and helping to prevent re-injury from occurring. Massage is also a great way of removing everyday aches and pains.
Anyone can benefit from sports and remedial massage. It helps to relieve the aches and pains from your lifestyle, work, hobbies and activities. It is also effective following surgery to reduce scar tissue and promote healing.
Below are the more specific types of massage our masseuses are all trained in:
• General Massage
• Soft Tissue release
• Neuromuscular Technique
• Muscle Energy Technique
• Myofascial Release
• Postural Assessment
Sports massage is for everyone, our most common complaints are back pain, neck pain and shoulder aches/stiffness. It is a typically deeper type of massage, aimed at more specific injuries.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that can allow us access to the body part being treated if necessary. We always have gowns available if you need/require one..
It is an urban myth that the more a massage hurts, the more productive and effective it is being…this is not the case. Yes when muscles are very tight and sore, treatment of them can sometimes be sore but this will be tailored to your needs by our expert team. Prefer a gentle treatment? Just ask. Alternately if you prefer the extra pointy elbows and thumbs then just let us know! Please remember feedback to our practitioners during your treatment is helpful to them.
It is very unlikely for any type of massage to be covered by private health insurance, even if it is part of your ‘treatment’ plan and not just therapeutic. However, please do consult with your insurance and check the policy you have with them.
Unfortunately our massage room is up two flights of stairs, if this poses a problem please do let our reception staff know and they can arrange a room on the first floor to be used for your treatment.
On occasions your Chiropractor may request that you have a massage either a few days before your treatment or immediately prior to it. If they are finding stubborn areas of tension in your skeletal system, it may help their treatment be more effective if the massage therapist has worked to soften the muscles first.
Maintenance massage is designed to help the athlete reach peak performance through a routine program of massage. It aids in the management of both acute and chronic injuries and can recharge and renew the body and reduces the risk of injury. These benefits are valuable not only for athletes, but for anyone who works out on a regular basis or sits at a desk for long periods of time!
