Services: List

SPORTS THERAPY

Tailored, hands-on soft tissue therapy using massage, neuromuscular techniques, cupping and osteopathic manipulations.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue is a supportive treatment that delivers a host of benefits and most often used for general muscle tension. This treatment is done on bare skin and uses oil or lotion. Movements  such as gliding, pulling and kneading are applied to alleviate tension in your muscles. The benefits include, stress relief, reduction in pain, break up of scar tissue and increased range of movement.

SPORTS MASSAGE

Sports Massage is a great way to support your pre-event preparation, post event recovery, injury recovery and to identify areas of increased muscle tone and tension. Providing you with the best opportunity in your sporting endeavours, it is recognised as part of a gold standard recovery process. This treatment is done on bare skin and uses oil or lotion. The treatment promotes blood flow to the muscles, increases flexibility and reduces the effects of fatigue to enhance your performance and your ability to recover.

SOFT TISSUE MASSAGE

A more gentle approach to tension relief, it uses the movements of Swedish massage to address tension in muscles and bring about a state of relaxation. Oil based, it is done on bare skin and the therapist uses their hands, fingers and thumbs, forearms and elbows to apply pulling, stretching, kneading, rolling and gliding techniques. Great for relieving your stress induced tension and a treat for a special occasion or as part of a monthly self-care practice.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE

This type of massage involves manual manipulation of specific area of your body to stimulate the lymph vessels under the skin. This is thought to improve the drainage of lymph fluid, reduce swelling and aid the removal of waste products from stagnant areas of your body.

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE BODY WORK

We offer several body work therapies from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) including Tai Na, Gua Sha, acupressure and cupping.


Tui Na is a deep tissue massage done over clothing and follows meridians, or energy lines, applying techniques to muscles and soft tissue, acupressure points and joints. It is invigorating and relaxing at the same time and works on a physiological and emotional level to restore balance. Wear comfortable clothing for ease of movement.

Gua Sha uses a smooth edge tool to scrape the skin, increasing blood flow to the tissue.

FASCIA THERAPY

Sometimes called Myotherapy, it is a technique that can be used alongside other soft tissue therapy or as the main focus of your session. Working on tight, injured or fatigued tissue it helps re-align and relax muscles and trigger point areas. Due to its light nature and application it works especially well on areas of heightened sensitivity.

MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE

Using fine needles to stimulate the nerves in muscles to produce pain relieving endorphins and improve tissue function.
