Remedial Massage

Our highly trained and qualified remedial massage therapists are available to support clients from the Melbourne Eastern Suburbs and Yarra Valley region.  Remedial Massage is a therapeutic massage use to assist the body in the recovery of tight and sore muscles, strains, sprains and bruising. Deep tissue massage encourages improved circulation, with the movement of inflammation, damaged cells and assisting the body with scar tissue and adhesions left after injury.

Encourage healing and recovery

It may speed up recovery and encourage more complete healing. It may also be used for lifestyle conditions, such as repetitive strain injury and back pain, as well as muscular tension associated with posture, work habits and sporting pursuits.

A session may involve using a variety of techniques to provide improvement of muscular discomfort.

A massage appointment may involve a pre-massage postural assessment to identify areas of restriction and a post treatment reassessment.

In conjunction with this treatment, dry needling or cupping may be used according to your preferences and needs at the time of the appointment.

We encourage your feedback

During an appointment, depending on the methods used, tenderness may be felt in the areas being treated. Your feedback is encouraged to pinpoint problematic areas and to regulate pressure. It does not set out to relax the patient, rather address a mechanical issue. All round health improvement may be another potential benefit of treatment, such as better sleep, increased vitality and performance levels as well as enhanced mobility. This treatment style is often used by athletes, however can be an effective form of treatment for non-sports people.

Post treatment recovery

If you are new to massage, it is not uncommon to be tender the day after treatment as your muscles recover. This usually passes within 24 hours. Drink plenty of water post treatment to encourage a good recovery.
