REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY
Remedial Massage incorporates some or all of the following techniques with a focus on treating specific areas of pain or injury, to help heal muscles and other soft tissues.
Deep Tissue Massage
Slow, firm pressure applied along your deeper muscle fibres. Helps relieve chronic muscular pain and tightness, sporting and occupational injuries.
Trigger Point Therapy
Sustained pressure applied to abnormally contracted, tender points within your muscles. Helps relieve chronic muscular pain and improve your range of movement.
"Jodie has sorted out every ache and pain my partner and I have had over the last 15 years. Her dedication to her job is unfaltering."
Deep, rubbing movements across your muscle fibres and soft tissues. Helps break down adhesions and scar tissue.
Therapeutic (Relaxation) Massage*
Non-specific, usually lighter pressure. Improves your circulation, reduces muscular tension by flushing wastes and prepares your muscles for deeper treatment. *Note: "Relaxation only" massage is NOT remedial massage and may not be claimable under private health insurance.
Assisted stretches involving contract/relax techniques to improve your range of movement.
SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY
Helps prepare muscles for and aid recovery from training and competition. May incorporate remedial massage techniques or brisk, lighter techniques to warm up your muscles pre-event and flush wastes post-event.
