Myotherapy & Remedial Massage

 

In need of a good massage? Our two Remedial Massage Therapists Daniel White and George Mihle are experts in their field.

What is a Massage Therapist?

A massage Therapist treats most soft tissues of the human body including muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (connective tissue). 

 

Who can use massage?

Everybody can benefit from regular massage, from the elderly, to sportspeople, labourers and office workers. You don’t have to be suffering from soreness- a regular massage is the key to better health.

 

Remedial Massage

A remedial massage is more hands-on, manipulating the soft tissue to address dysfunction. Remedial massage stretches muscles, inhibits muscle spasm, increases flexibility and helps break down scar tissue. A neck and shoulder massage can also alleviate repetitive strain injuries resulting from poor posture or sitting for long periods of time.

 

A remedial massage therapist can develop a massage program in conjunction with your training to maximise your performance and rehabilitation.

 

Relaxation Massage

Typically, a relaxation massage focuses on stress release.  The techniques are soothing, but will hone in on any tightness present.

 

If your physical or emotional health is challenged, massage can eliminate the production of stress chemicals in the body.  So if you’re feeling under pressure, wind down with a soothing massage to feel revitalised.

Can I use massage in conjunction with other treatment?
