Massage Therapy (allow 60 minutes for this appointment)
Massage therapy relieves pain, dysfunction and disability through manipulation of the muscles, fascia and related soft tissues. Once you’ve completed a short health history questionnaire, your student therapist will use gentle manipulations applied to the body to reduce stress, fatigue, anxiety, improving your energy levels and increasing your blood circulation.
Remedial Massage Therapy (allow 90 minutes for this appointment)
Remedial therapies utilise a number of massage techniques to assess and treat soft tissue dysfunction. Techniques might include advanced soft tissue manipulations, muscle energy techniques, thermal therapies, stretching and therapeutic exercise. At your first visit, your student therapist will devote around thirty minutes to the assessment of your posture and movements. After this thorough assessment and case history is documented, a treatment plan will be recommended. Treatment typically commences at this first session after the initial assessment, and continues over multiple visits to the clinic.
