Don't underestimate the power of touch.
“The human body has been designed to resist an infinite number of changes and attacks
brought about by its environment. The secret of good health lies in successful adjustment to
changing stresses on the body.”
– Harry J. Johnson

This type of massage aims to assess and treat soft tissue injuries or limitations that either cause you pain or restrict your movement. Massage techniques can be applied to the skin, muscles tendons and ligaments, to heal, rehabilitate & relax muscles. Health Fund Rebates are also available.
Deep Tissue Massage
This massage is used for chronic aches and pain, focusing on the deeper layers of the muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibres.
Soft tissue manipulations facilitate a stretch into restricted myofascial regions of the body. The technique uses a sustained pressure engaging the elastic component of fascial tissue, which is retained until the tissue releases or softens.
Classic Swedish Massage
Relaxing massage consisting of long effluarage; sweeping strokes, kneading, vibrations and friction techniques performed on the superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. Great choice for the highly stressed and those needing a little time out.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (LMD)
This is a specialized technique, a gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products and toxins away from the tissues back toward the heart. (Coming Soon)
