Remedial Massage

Our specialty, Remedial Massage, involves the manipulation of body muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments to relieve pain and injury. When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or superficial. Remedial massage holistically treats the body healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

Remedial Massage is an excellent therapy for muscular tension or injury from from stress, poor posture or any prolonged or repetitive activity including breast feeding and over-work! It is often used effectively in the treatment of arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, whiplash, fibrositis, spondylitis, muscular atrophy and sports injuries.

Remedial Massage incorporates a variety of specialized techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms.

Our multi-skilled Remedial Massage Specialists will tailor your massage to address your particular requirements using a combination of the following techniques.

  • Swedish Massage
  • Trigger point Therapy
  • Deep tissue
  • Myofascial release
  • PNF Stretching

Swedish/Relaxation Massage

This beautiful, smooth, flowing full body massage is an excellent treatment for stress and exhaustion or for a luxurious treat. A Swedish massage at massage by the sea will induce a state of deep relaxation and a heightened sense of well-being. Other benefits include release of muscle tension and increased circulation.

Sports Massage

Remedial techniques are used specifically for pre and post event treatment to help prevent injury, repair damage and speed recovery. The treatment will usually include PNF stretching.

Pregnancy Massage

With extensive body changes and extra tension in the muscular skeletal system, caused by hormones and a shift in your centre of gravity, regular massage often makes for a much more comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy.

Massage is beneficial at all stages of pregnancy from 0 to 40+ weeks. Please let us know on booking how many weeks pregnant you are. A consent form is required to be signed before a treatment within the first 13 weeks.

Post natal massage improves the health and wellbeing of a new mum by promoting relaxation, relieving anxiety and having a positive effect on postpartum blues. The demands on the mother, particularly with breastfeeding, can cause strain on the upper back neck and shoulders.

Heated Stone Massage*

A combination of remedial and Swedish massage incorporating the use of heated smooth flat stones placed on key points of the body and used with oil to massage the body. The combination of the heat from the stones and massage gets deep into the muscles inducing a deeply relaxing effect. 1 ½ hours is recommended.

Magnesium Massage

Trans-dermal (through the skin) magnesium therapy has shown to be effective as it is absorbed straight into the body’s cells and tissues and raises magnesium levels in the body over a shorter amount of time. Trans-dermal magnesium massage enhances tissue recovery, reduces pain, improves tendon and ligament flexibility and helps break down inflammation therefore easing muscle cramps and spasms.

In sport, most athletes are lovers of magnesium as it helps their bodies recover faster after a game or injury.

Magnesium oil also has the effect of calming the nervous system and promoting relaxation of the muscles

Oncology Massage

Oncology massage is a highly specialised and very gentle light-touch modification of massage techniques which may assist people with a diagnosis or history of cancer with their pain, stress, anxiety and/or discomfort. Research has shown Oncology Massage improves quality of life and can be used for symptom management. It can help reduce the side effects experienced from conventional treatment of cancer and the symptoms of the disease process itself.
