Relaxation/Swedish Massage

A relaxation massage using the Swedish method --- a combination of smooth, flowing techniques applied to the body with the aim of improving circulation, reducing tension in soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fascia), removal of wastes and toxins from the body and promoting relaxation.

This kind of massage concentrates mostly on superficial tissues of the body.

Deep Tissue

A deep tissue massage may involve many of the techniques used in a relaxation massage, however, the focus is on the deeper tissues of the body and in many cases, specific areas of tension in the soft tissue.

Remedial Massage

A remedial massage focuses on a particular dysfunction or injury and aims to reduce pain by assessing the symptoms and biomechanics of the body and applying various techniques to address these symptoms.

Massage therapists can help with a number of sporting and biomechanical dysfunctions including, but not limited to:

  • Sports injuries
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Headaches
  • Muscular and joint pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Scoliosis
  • Back pain

Common techniques that can be applied to address these issues include:

  • Trigger Point therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Mobilisation techniques
  • Cupping
  • Stretching
  • Reflexology techniques

Sports Massage

Sports massage is specific to people who are active. It can be preventative (pre/post event massage), but can also be applied after an injury has occurred to speed up the recovery process.
The techniques applied are often quick and intense and are aimed at promoting blood flow, releasing toxins and wastes from affected areas, reducing tension, relieving pain and preventing any (or further) injury.

Pregnancy Massage

The aim of pregnancy massage is to reduce stress/tension and promote wellbeing for the mother-to-be during the various stages of pregnancy. Both relaxation and remedial techniques are applied and assist in reducing tension, promoting blood flow, releasing toxins/wastes from the body, alleviating specific areas of stiffness and helping the mother to relax. Pregnancy massage can be done throughout the entire pregnancy and is safe if performed by a trained therapist. However, you should always consult your doctor before you receive a pregnancy message to ensure that it is ok for your personal circumstances.
