To find the right massage for you our therapist will provide a personalised consultation. Our treatments include;
Remedial massage uses a range of manual therapy techniques such as mobilisation, acupressure, trigger point therapy, deep connective tissue manipulation and stretching to relieve pain and improve function.
Good For: Imbalances, injuries, neck pain and tension, muscle cramps, muscle pain and tightness and migraines.
If you’re a gym user, into sports, or a run off your feet mum, you’ll know what pushing yourself feels like. On top of day-to-day life, it can lead to wear and tear on muscles and tendons. That’s where our sports massage can help prevent and heal muscle and tendon injury.
Good For: Sporting, gym and muscle overuse, and impact injuries. Sports massage stimulates blood circulation and release knots in the muscles, while helping increase flexibility and range of motion. It incorporates remedial massage, trigger point and deep tissue techniques to assist in specific injury rehabilitation and alleviate pain.
A truly holistic therapy, relaxation massage can calm the nervous system, incorporates aromatherapy, supports immune and lymphatic function and enhances your overall wellbeing. Involving long, soft kneading to the superficial muscles, it is both relaxing and stimulating.
Good For: Releasing stress and anxiety, pampering yourself and pregnancy massage from an accredited therapist.
When the baby’s weight is concentrated to the front of the body, it can cause a lot of strain on the back as it tries to overcompensate for your struggling abdominal muscles. A pregnancy massage alleviates the tightness and pain brought on by pregnancy and the ever-changing weight of your body throughout.
Good For: Relieving the strain of pregnancy on the body as well as releasing muscle tightness to prepare your body for muscular changes post-pregnancy
Dry needling is a little different to acupuncture, as it focuses directly on the muscular system. Fine needles are administered into the skin and muscle to help release trigger points.
Good For: Removing deep knots that massage alone can’t quite release.

Massage therapy is a complete and comprehensive approach to total mind, body and soul wellness. From the moment you enter the clinic we assess your posture, symmetry and body mechanics, and tailor the massage to your wants, needs and concerns to ensure it gives you the right outcome. We specialise in Remedial, Sports and Relaxation massage suitable for both active and more relaxed lifestyles.
What is included in my Massage Therapy treatment?
Massage Therapy is highly regulated industry and our therapist reflects those standards. She is HICAPS qualified, fully insured and a member of the Australian Massage Therapy Association (AMT). Our therapist will provide a private needs assessment at the start of your massage therapy session.
This could include a visual assessment of your overall alignment, checking range of motion for any areas of concern, a gait assessment, as well as some passive and active movements. Following the assessment your therapist will discuss a proposed treatment plan with you to confirm you are happy before proceeding.
Throughout your treatment our Massage Therapist will check-in with you as appropriate to ensure you are comfortable and that the treatment is meeting expectations. We encourage an environment that enables you to feedback to your therapist as the treatment takes place to make sure your needs are being met. Although we have many similarities, everyone is different and unique, what works for one might not work for the other, but together we can discover the perfect combination for you.
Our massage therapy treatments are tailored individually to you specifically to ensure you leave feeling healed and rejuvenated. Our treatments of remedial, sport and relaxation massage also include options for pregnancy, deep tissue, trigger point, stretching and mobilisation.
Is it right for me?
Yes, massage is for everyone and invaluable, some would even say essential, as part of your physical and mental wellbeing. It is used to release pain and tension from work when our bodies are held in the same unnatural position for hours on end, aid in the healing of gym related muscular injuries and simply reducing the stresses that build up overtime due to our very busy on-the-go lifestyles.
After the treatment your tension will ease, blood will flow back into blocked areas of muscles enabling them to heal, range of movement will improve, you’ll be left with a feeling of having being nurtured and looked after. Massage can help you feel light on your feet and clear in your mind again.
With regular massage treatments built into your routine, you will begin to notice the difference in everyday activities and in your fitness and lifestyle.
See you in the clinic.
