Remedial Massage Northcote

Treatments are highly effective in reducing your pain and tension — naturally.

Treatments are professionally recognised by The Australian Association of Massage Therapists and are claimable through your health fund.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is highly effective in improving your muscle and joint pain which can develop while you are at home, work or exercising.

During your treatment firm massage pressure is applied. I work with your body rather than against it. Firm but gentle remedial pressure, muscle stretching and muscle release points are used to improve your blood circulation and muscular tone.

By reducing pain your quality of life is enhanced.

Take home strengthening or stretching exercises are often included in your session. This helps you to maintain your health at home.

A Remedial treatment includes Shiatsu techniques and Reiki that help to reduce muscular tension and increase relaxation. You are treated through your clothes or a towel. Please note I’m currently unable to treat new massage clients.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage involves long, broad, slow massage strokes and rocking.

This encourages your body to rest and restore.

Relaxation massage enhances your blood and lymph circulation, nourishes your body cells, and relaxes your muscles.

Sarah also teaches you relaxation techniques that you can easily incorporate into your day to day life.

Please note: Relaxation massage is not currently being offered. Please see Reiki or Shiatsu treatments.

Pregnancy Massage

Receiving treatments throughout your pregnancy has a range of benefits for you and your baby. Pre and post-natal massage decreases your muscle tension, increases your joint movement, induces relaxation and promotes blood flow.

During your treatment emphasis is often placed on your lower back, hips, buttocks, shoulders and feet. Your treatment includes massage, gentle stretching and rocking.

Physical and mental tension is reduced enabling you to relax and move more freely.

Depending on your needs a pregnancy treatment can be focused solely on massage or may include Shiatsu techniques and Reiki that help to reduce muscular tension and increase relaxation. You are treated through your clothes or a towel.

Essential oils have great healing properties. When inhaled or placed on the skin they send messages to your brain creating mental, emotional and physical changes.

Oils are individually selected during your treatment.

For example:

  • lavender promotes relaxation
  • peppermint increases your energy levels
  • basil and wintergreen reduce your muscular aches and pains

Essential oils add to the therapeutic effect of both remedial and relaxation massage.

Shiatsu translates to “finger pressure” in Japanese.

Energy moves throughout your body through energy pathways known as meridians which are connected to specific organs. Disruption to this flow of energy may produce pain and stiffness, digestive, emotional and mental imbalances.

During a treatment your energy is rebalanced allowing your pain and symptoms to lessen

Shiatsu is able to treat range of conditions ranging from muscular pain to menstrual difficulties, digestive conditions to anxiety.
