SPORTS AND INJURY THERAPY
Healthy Aging Wellness Journey
Remedial is defined as "giving or intended as a remedy or cure". Whilst the other massage styles that we offer focus on relaxation, remedial massage has an emphasis on repair and restoration of the body.
Remedial massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissues, focusing on specific injuries or pain in the body. Our massage therapists acknowledge the interconnectedness of the body, and aim to address the source of the pain, as well as the symptoms.
Through systematic assessment and treatment of muscle, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues, remedial massage aims to assist in pain, stress, rehabilitation, and injury management. A variety of techniques may be used, including, but not limited to, deep tissue work, sustained pressure and trigger point therapy, stretch therapy and gentle muscle release techniques.
Our regular clients love pairing an infrared sauna session with a remedial massage. The infrared sauna loosens and relaxes muscles, preparing them perfectly for manipulation. Visit our packages page for more information on combining treatments.
Dry needling, otherwise known as 'trigger point dry needling' is a technique offered alongside remedial massage. Dry needling is a valuable complementary medicine for the treatment of muscular pain and stiffness, and may increase mobility. Treatment techniques are based on concepts of modern medicine, and are not to be considered acupuncture. A fine, flexible, and sterile needle is used to release taut bands of muscle caused by excessive acetylcholine release.
This treatment is not available through our booking page. You may request this treatment with your remedial therapist, and they will determine if it is suitable for your needs.
Sports medicine acupuncture
Sports Medicine Acupuncture combines principles and techniques from traditional Chinese medicine with western sports medicine, offering an integrated approach to treating injuries. Sports Medicine Acupuncture aims to find the root source of the pain, rather than just addressing the symptoms. This style of acupuncture uses sterile, disposable needles to treat acupuncture points determined by symptom location and origin.
Some specific acupuncture points have been proved, through functional MRI, to treat symptoms related to organ systems, or pain in separate locations. Needles may be stimulated manually or left in place for the duration of the treatment. Most treatments will last between 10 and 45 minutes. The length of the treatment is determined by the remedial therapist, through a comprehensive assessment.
This treatment is not available through our booking page. A consultation is required to ensure your suitability. Call us on 02 6104 6520 or send us a message for more information.
