Remedial Massage

Remedial massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body, through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, by either following or crossing over the muscle fibres, fascia and tendons.

The techniques can include Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage and stretching thereby creating an improved range of motion through the joints. The therapist will also provide information and advice for re-educating your body to let go of built up tension and to help correct muscular imbalances in the body.

For all work cover referrals, please forward relevant documentation from your GP before your initial appointment to confirm approval of sessions.

Sports Massage

Deep tissue techniques that help speed up the recovery time of overworked muscles by clearing the build-up of waste products and delivering oxygen and other nutrients to the tissues following vigorous exercise. Helps prevent muscle soreness after exercise.

When making an appointment for remedial or sports sessions, please book the initial 45 minute consultation. This allows for sufficient time to discuss your injury history and time for assessment and treatment. If you have a referral from your treating therapist please bring it with you.

Relaxation Massage

This classic style of massage, commonly known as Swedish massage, is performed with slow sweeping strokes that soothe away tension, leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Prenatal Massage

As each trimester brings many new changes to the pregnant body, massage therapy can be an effective part of prenatal health. Massage increases circulation and the flow of lymphatic fluid which can reduce swelling in the limbs and help lower blood pressure.

As the abdomen grows, many women experience hip, back and neck pain as the pelvis tilts forward and soft tissues elongate to balance and support the growing baby. Massage is soothing and effective in bringing relief from pain and many common conditions associated with pregnancy.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is an East Asian healing technique. Gua means to scrape or rub. Sha is a ‘reddish, elevated, millet-like skin rash’ (aka petechiae). Sha is the term used to describe Blood stasis in the subcutaneous tissue before and after it is raised as petechiae.

Gua Sha is used whenever a patient has pain whether associated with an acute or chronic disorder. In addition to resolving musculoskeletal pain, Gua Sha is used to treat as well as prevent common cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma, as well as any chronic disorder involving pain, congestion of Qi and Blood.


In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), cupping is a method of applying acupressure by creating a vacuum next to the patient’s skin. The therapy is used to relieve what is called “stagnation” in TCM terms, and is used in the treatment of respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Cupping is also used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and other musculoskeletal pain. Its advocates claim it has other applications as well.
