This will allow them to address and determine what type of massage will benefit you most. We recommend your initial appointment last for up to an hour or at least 45 minutes.

What types of Massage and other treatments do you offer during a massage appointment?

Any treatment is tailored to suit each individual’s specific requirements, and our remedial therapists provide a wide range of massage styles, including:

·   Relaxation Massage – This type of massage aims to reduce stress and muscle tension. It will help you to relax and unwind from the everyday stress in life.

·   Deep Tissue – As the name suggests, it is a deep form of massage and it uses slow deep, and intense strokes. It aims to improve structural restrictions caused by deeper muscles and tissue layers.

·   Sports Massage – Designed to help you enhance physical performance, reduce stiffness, increase flexibility and promote faster recovery from injuries.

·   Lymphatic Drainage Massage– Stimulates the lymph nodes to drain the lymph fluid from the tissues to assist fluid flow throughout the body, aid toxins removal and improve circulation.

·   Cupping therapy – Consists of the use of special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

·   Dry Needling– Consists of the use of special needles inserted in “trigger points” in your muscle or tissue. Dry needling is also sometimes called intramuscular stimulation. The points are areas of knotted or hard muscle.

In many cases, there are other underlying factors causing an injury. For example, it could be that constant back pain is caused by bad posture, repetitive work-related activities, adopting the wrong technique when playing a sport or even being overweight. Accordingly, the myotherapist not only treats the back pain but addresses the other factors too. This holistic approach aims to reduce the risk of the injury happening again.

 

How long should I book a massage for?

Usually, a full body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. 

The half-hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet.

Most people prefer 60-minute sessions for optimal relaxation. The 90-minute session is the ultimate experience of feeling totally relaxed and free from any aches, pains, and stress-related disorders.

Drew

Remedial Massage Therapist

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.
