Remedial massage therapy

Remedial Massage Therapy is the assessment and treatment of soft tissue dysfunctions that cause pain and restrict human movement.

Remedial Massage is concerned with the restoration and maintenance of the soft tissue structures of our body.  Massage stretches muscles, inhibits muscle spasm, increases flexibility and helps break down scar tissue.  Therefore it can help you recover from injury, accident, sport or surgery.  A neck and shoulder massage can also alleviate repetitive strain injuries resulting from poor posture or sitting for long periods of time.  If you play sport, regular massage can help prevent injury.

Relaxation (Swedish) massage 

Relaxation (Swedish) Massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style of massage specifically designed to relax the body and promote wellbeing.

A 1 hour treatment will be a full body massage - back, legs, feet, upper chest, arms, hands, neck and finished off with a face and scalp massage.

A 1½ hour treatment will be a full body massage with extra time spent where you need it most.


NurtureLife® pregnancy massage 

What is NurtureLife®?
NurtureLife is a holistic perinatal massage therapy method developed by Pregnancy Massage Australia that supports women who are nurturing new life.

What are the benefits of NurtureLife®?
Pregnancy is a constant state of change; a NurtureLife® pregnancy massage specialist offers wonderful support through the perinatal period.  The body undergoes many changes and the discomforts of pregnancy can be relieved.

At NurtureLife®, we believe a well supported mum will have a wonderful journey into motherhood.  Regular NurtureLife® pregnancy massage helps to support the many changes occurring from week to week, allowing the body to adapt through the pregnancy.  We focus on the mother baby connection creating a warm, safe, secure, nurturing environment where the mum-to-be can rest, relax and recharge.

The NurtureLife® experience assists in relieving many of the common causes of discomfort during pregnancy.  Some examples include:

  • Insomnia is eased through improved sleep patterns
  • A greater sense of relaxation helps to reduce stress and anxiety levels
  • Specialised massage techniques are delivered for pain management, addressing groin pain referred from the uterus; lumbar, back, pelvic, hip and rib pain common in the third trimester
  • Shoulder and neck massage helps to relieve tension, and is also beneficial while in the breastfeeding position
  • Hormonal headaches are reduced
  • Oedema, swelling and discomfort in the legs and arms is eased, which reduces the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Leg cramps are minimised due to improved circulation.


NurtureLife® for Postnatal Care

The early postnatal weeks are the time for your body to readjust and recover from the birth and pregnancy.  The joy of adapting to new motherhood can also be exhausting, as the body is undergoing many changes.

At NurtureLife® we aim to enhance with mother's physical and emotional wellbeing during this time through a variety of methods, again with massage as the central focus.

We consider the body has spent 9 months creating a new life and overnight we are presented with a new baby.  This is the optimum time when the body requires support to adjust and unwind the 9 months of pregnancy.  Nurturelife® for the postnatal period is a wonderful time to recharge and readjust the mind and body to motherhood.  New mums need time to relax and reduce any pain or discomforts onset in pregnancy and labour; what better way to achieve this than with a nurturing massage?

Postnatal Massage promotes:

  • Greater vitality and less fatigue for new mothers
  • Helps soothe nervous tension resulting in improved sleep
  • Reduces the baby blues and the sense of anxiety and stress
  • Regains strength and eases muscle tension
  • Relieves the breast feeding posture by relaxing the neck and shoulders
  • Reduces swelling
  • Strengthens and tones abdominal muscles

We love to see the new babies in our clinic as they sleep peacefully while Mum gets her massage.

You can have a choice of a

75 minute Consultation (15 minute consultation & a 60 minute massage)

90 minute Consultation (15 minute consultation & a 75 minute massage)

 

 

Hot stone massage

The ultimate in luxury........"Hot" Stone Massage is a luxurious massage using warmed stones as an extension of the therapist's hands.  This Therapy is extremely beneficial for many common ailments because it is using the wonderful benefits of massage with the benefits of hydrotherapy (water and temperature).

You will feel all of your tension and stress slip away with a luxurious 1½ hour treatment, to relax and rejuvenate your body and mind.

(A "hot" stone massage is more expensive than a basic body massage because it requires more preparation and clean up time.)
