We'll work with you to develop a personalised massage treatment plan to help you achieve your goals, whether you want to:
We use a variety of techniques which will be combined to provide you with the best possible treatment - whatever your condition or issue is. Techniques we may use with you include:
Deep tissue massage
- Sports massage
- Neuromuscular therapy
- Trigger point therapy
- Mysofascial release
- Dry needling
- Swedish/relaxation massage
- Thermal stone therapy
We also get an understanding of your biomechanices, to help determine WHY you have a problem. Whether it's your seated or standing posture, the way you sleep, the way you walk or run, the way you use your mouse or keyboard or even cross your legs. We will help you retrain your body to work in a new pattern to reduce pain or discomfort and improve movement.
If you suffer from headaches or migraine, if you feel like you're carrying a lot of tension in your shoulders and upper back, if you ever get tingling or numbness in your hands or fingers, have sciatica, or lower back pain, or you just know that your body isn't moving the same as it used to, then massage therapy can help you.
If you exercise regularly, especially if you compete in events, therapeutic massage will help you recover faster, reduce the risk of injury and can even help you run, bike or paddle faster or pass, punch or kick harder!
To find out more about these techniques, please check out Our Services page.
We may also take you through a postural analysis, range of motion and orthopaedic tests, various stretching techniques and use heat and/or ice treatment on you when appropriate.
And most importantly we will also help you learn more about how your own body works, so you can understand not only why the treatment works, but how you can help yourself get your body working! So get moving - check our schedule and book with us now!
