Remedial Massage

Ever since l was a little girl l was very interested in massage therapy. I remember my dad always asking me to step on his back or my mum to massage her aching feet. In 1997 l decided to start my training at the Southern School of Natural Therapy where l completed my Certificate IV in Massage Therapy and later at Q Academy where l certified as a Remedial Massage Therapist. At the beginning it was more for my general interest, however 15 years later l have established an amazing career and have loved every minute. The smiles on my clients faces after their massage treatments, even after painful treatments, is enough to make me keep doing what l love .

Massage is an application of manual techniques to the soft tissue to mobilise them to maintain flexibility. Massage is especially effective in breaking compensatory pain postures and patterns. Modern studies show massage can be used to successfully treat a variety of disorders including –

Back and neck pain

Chronic pain



Soft tissue pain



The benefits of massage are both emotional and physical. One of the immediate emotional benefits is the feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs as massage promotes the release of endorphins, a chemical that produces feelings of wellbeing. Some physical benefits include –

Reduced muscle tension

Reduces stress

Speed up healing of soft tissue injuries

Improved circulation

Increase joint mobility and flexibility

Stimulates the lymphatic system

Remedial Massage is a clinical approach encouraging healing to njured connective tissue, such as muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments. The  consultation  will include a a postural analysis,  range of movement testing and and orthapaedic testing if required.  This will be followed by the remedial treatment whcih may include the following,

Trigger points – uses the body‘s pressure points to alleviate pain and stiffness, usually done in conjunction with remedial massage. Pressure is applied to the point to remove build up of toxins and waste. In doing this your discomfort will be ease.

Myofascial cupping – traditionally originating from China, can also be  used in conjuction with remedial massage.  It involves the use of glass or plastic cups that are positioned or glided onto affected muscles or trigger points . The air is removed from the cups either with heat or suction. This process is not painful however you may experience some reddening of bruising of the skin due to congestion of blood flow . The aim of the cups is to lift the connective tissue, loosening any adhesion and enabling blood flow to areas that have been restricted.


NOTE:  Your may feel alittle discomfort during treatment, as the treatment requires to  go deep into the muscle . This discomfort may last for up to 48/72hrs
