Our Remedial Massage Therapists are trained to deliver a comprehensive treatment using observation, assessment skills and a wide variety of techniques to address muscular tension and dysfunction. Techniques aim to stretch and lengthen connective tissue and muscles, reduce pain and discomfort, encouraging wellness, relaxation and mobility. Practitioner skills used in a remedial massage treatment may include muscle manipulation, postural assessment, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, cupping, relaxation massage, dry-needling, acupressure, passive stretching, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, cranio-sacral and other advanced techniques. Every treatment is tailored to your need on the day or as part of an ongoing Health and Wellness program.
BENEFITS OF REMEDIAL MASSAGE:
Remedial massage promotes a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs in part because the massage prompts the release of endorphins (brain chemicals) that produce feelings of wellbeing. It also relaxes muscular tension, stimulating the flow of blood through the muscles, breaking down and eliminating toxins, enhancing oxygenation of the brain to relax the nervous system and mind. Levels of stress hormones such as Adrenalin, Cortisol and Norepinephrine, which can impair the immune system during long term stress, are also reduced with remedial massage. Remedial Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain and exercise by pushing the tissues of metabolic wastes including lactic acid and uric acid. It improves circulation and stretches the ligaments and tendons, keeping them subtle and young.
Remedial Massage also stimulates the skin and soothes the nervous system. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, making it an integral modality in any regular program for stress management. Remedial Massage also has special clinical advantages to assist in a medical, rehabilitation or remedial therapy program.
Remedial Massage can be used to assist the treatment of a variety of symptoms and disorders including:
• Nervous Tension and Depression

HOT STONE MASSAGE
A Hot Stone Massage is a journey of the senses, allowing deep relaxation and the release of muscular aches and tension. Flat, smooth stones of various sizes are used in this treatment to provide a comforting and effective warmth and pressure on the muscles.
The stones are heated and applied to the body following the same principles as Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, using owing, smooth strokes through to deep tissue bodywork. Stones are sometimes left to rest on the body while the therapist continues to massage using hands or another hot stone.
Using the Hot Stone Massage technique allows both physical and energetic blockages to release and induces a deep sense of relaxation, peace and balance.
