About Massage

 What is Remedial Massage?(Source Massage and Myotherapy Australia)

Remedial Massage Therapists are trained to assess and treat muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue and treat injuries and soreness.  They should hold at least a Diploma of Remedial Massage


They employ a variety of treatments for use in pain management of chronic musculoskeletal conditions, postural conditions, sporting and occupational injuries.


To determine where to treat patients effectively, remedial therapists must have a working knowledge of human anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology.

A typical remedial massage session must involve a thorough patient consultation and assessment to determine the patientís health status.

The goal of remedial massage is to help the body return to normal health after injury by reasonably reversing certain physical effects suffered as a result of moderate injury causing structural pain and/or lost mobility or function.

The treatment is designed to remediate the given condition by reducing or eliminating pain and restoring function.

What is Sport Massage?

Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries. Sports massage has three basic forms: pre-event massage, post-event massage, and maintenance massage. Requires Diploma Level of training.


Sports Massage isn't just for athletes. Anyone can benefit.
