Clinical Massage Therapies

Clinical Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy

Sports Massage is not just for sports people.  Whatever your age, activity level, health condition or occupation,  regular targeted massage by a clinically qualified therapist can be hugely beneficial.

Physical Benefits

– Decreases muscle tension and stiffness

– Promotes faster healing of muscles, tendons and ligaments

– Provides greater joint flexibility

– Reduces pain, lessens formation of excessive scar tissue

– Improves circulation of the blood and movement of lymph fluid

– Rectifies posture allowing for better weight distribution on your joints

Hot Stones Fusion Massage

Hot Stone Fusion is a deeply relaxing massage treatment that will leave you with a sense of well being like no other. Using a combination of  massage skills from the holistic and clinical, this treatment can be tailored to your symptoms. The heat from the stones warms up the muscles very quickly and allows for a deep treatment and so is as relevant and therapeutic for sports injuries as it is relaxation.

Physical Benefits

– Pain relief

– Decreases muscle tension and stiffness

– Alleviates the physical symptoms of stress

FAQ’s?

A: Although our therapists are highly qualified, Clinical Massage Therapists are not primary health care professionals and do not diagnose injuries or prescribe medical treatment.  The scope of a Clinical Massage Therapist is to assess and treat minor soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains, general muscular aches and imbalances.  Clients with a new injury or unexplained pain that requires diagnosis should see one of our Chiropractors or Physiotherapists.

If you are unsure, please speak to one of our team.

Your treatment will begin with a biomechanical and postural assessment.

It is recommended you to wear loose clothing and bring a pair of shorts you can move in.

Clients are covered at all times during treatment and will only be asked to take off items of clothing if they are comfortable to do so.

Treatment may include:  light or deep tissue massage techniques; mobilisation and stretching; soft tissue release; hots stones and massage using massage tools, Myofascial cupping, muscle energy techniques; kinesiology taping and remedial exercise.

Treatment will be tailored to your needs.
