Remedial massage uses different techniques to treat muscular pain and dysfunction that can affect our movement. It can be applied in the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases of treatment. Remedial massage is concerned with the restoration and maintenance of the soft tissue structures of the body.
We utilises soft tissue massage for individuals who are suffering from injury or ailment. With a team of professional practitioners on hand providing a service to individuals from throughout the city, our North Melbourne clinic strives to have you back at your peak performance whether for sport, work or daily life.
A complement to prenatal care, pregnancy massage helps reduce pain and discomfort for the soon-to-be mother during pregnancy. This treatment is a great option for women suffering from stiff neck, backaches, headaches, edema (swelling) or leg cramps.
During pregnancy a woman may experience body aches and pains, headaches, nausea, fatigue, anxiety and depression – symptoms that can be reduced by massage. Different treatments in different stages of pregnancy can improve circulation, reduce stress to postural muscles, decrease oedema and increase relaxation.
During pregancy the woman’s centre of gravity moves forward and the lower back muscles have to work harder to support the spine and the growing belly. She may experience more energy but find lying flat uncomfortable. The ligaments in the pelvis soften as the hormone relaxin is produced, sometimes causing instability and pain. Prescription exercises and massage can help with these changes.
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to relaxation massage, but with more of an emphasis on releasing the pain caused by muscle tension, deep tissue massage focused greatly on the deepest layers of tendons, fascia and muscle tissue. Deep tissue massage carries a range of benefits including releasing continual muscle tension, reducing anxiety, reducing spasms as well as reducing the symptoms of arthritis.
The focus here is on releasing the deeper layers of muscle tissue, using deep muscle compression and friction along the muscle fibres.
Here at Body & Health Creation in Melbourne, our Deep tissue massage therapists are experienced at treating a number of different injuries commonly suffered.
Perfect for athletes regardless of skill or playing level, sports massage focuses on regions of the body overused by the athlete which may be suffering from stress. The massage therapy provided intends to alleviate pain caused by stress on the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.
This is a highly effective method to help reduce pain and stress in the myofascial connective tissue. Our therapist uses the hands to directly seek out tension in the myofascial tissue before applying pressure to help relieve the pain it’s causing.
Trigger Point Therapy
A form of remedial massage therapy, trigger point therapy involves pressure being applied to specified points of muscle tissue in order to alleviate pain throughout the body. As certain sections of muscle tissue directly effect pain caused throughout the body, this can be an effective method of treatment to help reduce pain in those specific areas.
Trigger points are basically small painful knots in your skeletal muscle which in turn affect your muscle fibers. This is the source most most muscle pain, hence the term ‘knots’. By using Trigger Point Therapy one can help reduce and eliminate muscle pain leading to more comfort and increased athletic performance.
Physicians Dr Travell and Dr Simons have defined a myofascial trigger point as a “hyperirritable spot in a skeletal muscle”. The spot is painful on compression and can give rise to characteristic referred pain and tenderness. By applying pressure to these points, we can deactivate them, helping reduce pain and discomfort in the area.
The definitive goal of Relaxing Massage is to promote overall health and wellbeing for the body. This is achieved by providing long, deep strokes to the body tissue with the intention of improving blood flow to the heart.
Relaxation massage is one of the oldest forms of massage and is popular with many people because of its non-invasive, gentle techniques. A passive treatment using techniques such as long stroke, kneading and gentle stretches, relaxation massage stimulates the body’s own defenses against stress.
The key benefits of the Relaxing Massage is: balancing / harmonising / relaxing
