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.
For soft tissue therapy we use myofascial cupping. This works along the fibres of the muscle encouraging increased blood flow and oxygen to release the fascia, making more room for the muscles to release from a state of tension.
Good For: Eliminating tension, helping to ease pain and restoring motion.

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 and our therapist is HICAPS qualified, insured and Australian Massage Therapy (AMT) Association certified. Our therapist is of the highest professional quality and expertise, and will provide a private needs assessment at the start of your massage therapy session. This includes your alignment, concentrating on pelvic/hip symmetry and complete vertebrae/spinal alignment as this is the complete physical brain for your body. If your lumbar and pelvis are tilted or out of alignment you will have lower back pain and pain in the legs and feet. If your thoracic or cervical is out of alignment it results in upper back, arms, neck, jaw pain and headaches. A loss in strength can be coming from floating ribs sitting incorrectly. The assessment will explain any pain or abnormality in the body which the massage therapy treatment is designed to resolve.
During the treatment we relax the body, ease the muscles and calm the mind. We start with warming up the muscles and then feeling for as well as observing the tension and tightness. We get deep into the muscles and fascia to release the knots and use deep trigger points in their origin and insertion points. We finish with mobilisation to return the body to absolute symmetry and alignment and some stretching as well. Once the pelvis and spine are in alignment and all the muscles and trigger points have been massaged, released and stretched you leave with a complete sense of freedom.
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, aromatherapy, Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, stretching and mobilisation. Your private session includes your choice oils and choice of music to ensure your absolute comfort and healing.
Is it right for me?
Yes, massage is for everyone and essential as part of your life and physical as well as mental wellbeing. It is used to release pain and tension for desk work, gym or muscular injuries, the stresses of life or simply to relax.
Because you only have one body we believe massage therapy is more important than a hair or nail appointment or putting oil in your car, and that the importance of taking care of your body is primary and maintaining it ensures a full and happy life.
After the treatment your tension will ease, muscles begin to heal, and range of movement will improve as will a feeling of fulfilment. You will feel light on your feet and clear in your mind. You will notice the difference in everyday activities and in your fitness and lifestyle.
See you in the clinic.
