Drew

Remedial Massage Therapist, Dry Needling & Cupping

Drew

Andrew started his current journey 5+ years ago. Initially completing a Qualification in Personal Training specialising in Corrective Exercise & Natural Movement. He has put a lot of the concepts he learnt during those first couple of years into his own daily practice, recognising his own restrictions and working on these daily, particularly mobility (which was restricted after working as a Carpenter for 20 years)
“I believe moving well is one of the key factors to improved health and wellbeing particularly as we age” he said.

After Andrew completed the Diploma of Remedial massage his focus shifted to providing manual therapy as the core of his business and providing advice on stretching and strengthening as an additional service. Thus, providing a holistic service. As a Carpenter selects the appropriate tool for the task at hand, so too he believes its about selecting the right treatment plan for each client.

Currently Andrew offers the following massage services below.

  • Deep tissue massage.
  • Myofascial release (Also advice on Self Myofascial release)
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Functional release cupping (a blend of static and dynamic cupping with movement) a great way to lengthen restricted muscles.
  • Dry needling (targeting stubborn trigger points and areas of pain & restriction)
  • Range of movement testing (to determine where your restricted)
  • Corrective exercise (to regain balance by stretching tight muscles and strengthening weak ones. Also addressing postural issues)

Of all the reasons why, you will want to see Andrew as a Remedial massage therapist, the number one reason is fundamentally because your seeking “CHANGE”

To CHANGE the way you feel & To CHANGE the way you move
It may sound like a pretty basic concept but the beauty with this approach. change is measurable; therefore, we can track your progress, look at what is working and alter what isn’t.

“I believe that if the stressors are removed or reduced and given the right environment the body will in most cases heal itself over time, or at least achieve measurable gains. That is where, as a manual therapist I look for those stressors, restrictions, things that are causing pain and/or restriction and provide the appropriate treatment for your situation”.

“I do not consider what I do as working for a living, as I enjoy the journey, helping others to move freer with reduced pain. Learning all I can about my chosen field and celebrating my clients wins.”

When Andrew is not in the clinic or studying, he enjoy bodyweight & mobility training, or otherwise known as Natural Movement Practice (MovNat). Also spending time out in Nature.

How long will a massage treatment last?

The average full-body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. A half-hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session, such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60 minute session for optimal relaxation. The 90 minute session is the ultimate experience to feeling totally relaxed and free from any aches and pains and stress related disorders.  

What should I expect during my first massage therapy visit?

Your massage therapist will require you to fill out a health history form prior to your initial appointment. After this, the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine what type of massage or combination of modalities  is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to evaluate your condition, and to see if you have any presenting complaints.

What do I wear during the massage?

Depending on the primary technique your therapist uses, you may or may not need to undress. For a full body massage you will undress to your underwear. Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress to your underwear, and you will be covered with a  towel at all times except the area being worked on.

What do I do during a massage therapy treatment?

Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, she or he will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It’s up to you! Let your practitioner know prior to your session.

It is your massage and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.

The difference between remedial massage and myotherapy

Remedial Massage

“Remedial massage is a hands-on massage technique used on soft tissues of the body with an aim to relieve pain, restore function, improve physical health, and relax the body and mind.”

Myotherapy

“Myotherapy is  anevidence-based physical therapy that aims to restore, maintain and maximise a person’s physical strength, function, movement, and well-being.

Professional Equipment

Our table is modern, reliable, sturdy, Australian made and electronically height adjustable. These provide a much more stable surface for your massage when compared to portable fold out tables.

The electronic height adjustment makes it easy for you to get on and off the table and also makes it possible for the massage therapist to adjust the height of the table easily to work various angles depending on your needs.

The room enables your privacy by being enclosed with sound proofed walls and a door. It has LED dimmable lighting for your eye comfort and is temperature controlled with great airflow so the room does not get too stuffy, hot or cold.

Soft, plush towels are also used and washed between treatments for added privacy and comfort.
