Help for Many Conditions

Massage combines many styles and techniques, providing a holistic alternative to painkillers. Various forms of massage are used for different people and conditions. Our therapists help with a broad array of conditions including:

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy involves the use of various methods of massage techniques to relax and release trigger points in the body. Trigger points are hypersensitive areas in muscles, tendons or connective tissue that usually are tender to ttouch. Trigger point therapy is excellent for releasing spasm in tight muscles which develop trigger points. Contributing factors to trigger points include poor posture and repetitive strain injuries. Trigger point therapy can combine other forms of massage to relieve trigger points and adhesions in the muscles that work from the skin’s fascia through to the different levels of muscle fibres.

Sports Massage Perth

Uses deeper pressure with more vigorous movements to relieve tightness and tension and break up any adhesions in the muscle fibers . It’s good for relieving sports injuries, overworked muscles that have tightened up due to over use and helps realign muscle imbalances.

Relaxation Massage

Promotes a sense of calm and relaxation to relieve stress and anxiety. The therapists uses a lighter pressure and longer strokes and gentle kneading along the muscles & fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). This increases blood flow and relieves muscle tension. It also encourages the blood flow around the body, increase oxygen distribution and helps flush out toxins.

Injury Management and rehabilitation Massage

Specifically focused on recovery from soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains obtained through repetative strain injuries, work, accident or overuse of muscles. Our experienced therapists are able to assess the muscles’overall strength, flexibility, health and tension and based on individual needs, assess weaknesses or over-exertion. Through a combination of massage techniques, manual mobilisation, stretches and exercises, our therapists can help return muscles to how they are meant to function.

Remedial Massage Therapy

A remedial treatment is used to tackle muscle pain and stiffness often to a specific part of the body that is causing discomfort. Some muscle pain can be ongoing and relate to lifestyle or circumstantial situations. Our therapists will assess the area of discomfort, locate the cause of the issue and use a combination of massage techniques specific to the patient’s needs to address the issue. A treatment plan may include some deep tissue and trigger point techniques which get deep into the muscle fibers to release tension.

Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue technique is similar to a Swedish massage but gets deeper into muscle fibers and connective tissue by using more pressure. This technique helps break up adhesions (knots) in the muscle fibers such as scar tissue which may have developed from previous injuries or muscle overuse. The therapist will generally concentrate on a specific part of the body to relieve the knots and tension in that local area. The effects of this type of treatment can often leave you feeling a little sore afterwards- we recommend resting after treatment (no exercise of strenuous physical activity) and drinking plenty of water.

Pregnancy Massage

Women undergo tremendous physiological changes as their baby grows and develops while their biomechanical structure has to withstand the extra weight on their spine and hips. Pregnancy massage can help with swelling, lower back pain associated with the increase in pressure and shift in postural alignment and encourage blood flow tension. A regular pregnancy massage can also help the body to prepare and cope with the rigors of childbirth, release endorphins and lower blood pressure, all effects associated with relieving stress and tension.
