Remedial Massage Melbourne
Remedial massage can help alleviate discomfort associated with every day and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain syndromes.
It also reduces the development of painful muscles if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma or injury.
Massage can accelerate the rate of recovery and is a powerful adjunct in the treatment of both long-standing and acute injuries.
Sports Massage is used by athletes at all levels to help prevent injury. It is commonly utilised one or two days prior to competition. It is also used to help prevent an excessive build up of scar tissue following injury and can stretch specific areas in a way that may not be possible with exercise.
Massage is also common in the days following competition to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness and enhance your body’s healing processes and speed recovery leading to earlier return to training.

A supporter of the philosophy and practice of preventative health, our Massage Therapists help clients improve the health of their bodies and mind by providing an understanding of their condition and apply corrective and preventative massage treatment and exercise.
