Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is the assessment and treatment of a muscular dysfunction, supported by a treatment plan and documented treatment notes.

Is Remedial Massage right for me?

  •   Remedial Therapy is designed for patients who have injured their muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues.
  •   This massage reduces pain and tension by releasing pressure of muscles in spasm, and addresses tendon and ligament complaints.
  •   Studies have shown that remedial massage provides positive benefits for insomnia, headache, depression and anxiety, back pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, chronic pain and constipation.

Will it hurt?

This type of massage, together with sports and deep tissue massage, will most likely work on sore, tender muscles so you may experience some discomfort if too much pressure is applied. Make sure to tell your therapist to adjust the pressure - your massage shouldn't hurt!

Sports Massage

A manual therapy, manipulative therapy, or manual & manipulative therapy is a physical treatment primarily used on the neuromusculoskeletal system to treat pain and disability.

Is Sports Massage right for me?

  •   People with chronic pain or restricted range of motion can also benefit from sports massage.
  •   Great choice to work on your problem area — a tender knee or pulled hamstring.

If your muscles are tight, you may experience some pain while the therapist applies pressure. Tip: try to be as relaxed as possible to avoid the pain.

Deep Tissue Massage

This is a massage technique aimed at the deeper tissue that utilises strong pressure, slow, deep strokes and friction across the structures of the muscle and fascia (also called connective tissue) to release chronic muscle tension.

Is Deep tissue Massage right for me?

  •   This type of massage loosens muscle tissues so it's perfect to remedy chronic aches and pain such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness or sore shoulders.
  •   Ideal to release toxins from muscles.
  •   Allows blood and oxygen to circulate properly through the body.

Will it hurt?

You may feel some discomfort as the massage therapist works on areas where there are adhesions or scar tissue. Remember to tell your therapist it hurts, so they can adjust the massage to your needs.

When you experience relaxation massage, you can expect a treatment that involves long, smooth, gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing; the pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful.

Is Relaxation Massage right for me?

  •   Expect soothing music, warm luxurious towels and occasional use of essential oils to enhance both the environment and the effects of the massage.

Oncology Massage

When you experience Oncology Massage, you will find the massage is very different from other styles of massage with benefits for not just those who are very unwell, other health concerns such as neuropathy or on a cancer journey and for anyone in need of deep relaxation. 

Is Oncology Massage right for me?

This treatment will be adapted for every individual and taking into account any of the side effects or treatment outcomes often experienced by cancer patients. By using appropriate pressure you will feel touched but not challenged with unwanted side-effects such as increased fatigue, bruising or increased pain. Knowing where on the body it is safe to massage and how to work around ports, appliances and surgical sites is an important part of Oncology Massage as is knowing how to comfortably position you to ensure that you experience the full benefit of the massage.
