Thank you for stopping by.
Currently there are a few spots available, but I am almost at my maximum capacity, so forgive me if I am unable to accomodate you!
You know I want to help you in any way I can, so you can head on over to my Journal where you may find helpful information/strategies to assist you.
Remedial massage is massage with a focus on treating particular points of pain and encouraging preventative strategies to minimise the liklihood of future re-injury.
Please remember: these things take time. If you have spent the last five years in this kind of pain, it will not improve with just one treatment. Not only is there tightness in your muscles, your brain believes that is how your body aught to feel, and will fight to return to that position. What we need to do is to re-educate your brain about what “normal” is.
Want to know more? I explain is all here.
What to expect:
> A brief run through of your medical history (for first timers), a chat about how your body is feeling (any particular areas of pain) and your expectations from the treatment
> Movement testing; this ascertains for me your body’s “normal” range of movement compared to your compromised movement. This way, your treatment can be orientated toward a targeted solution
> Treatment. This may include deep tissue massage, soft tissues massage, trigger point therapy, dry needling, and potentially some take home stretches/advice
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How long will I need?
A: For all initial consultations, I see you for an hour. In this time we will take your medical history, I may do some physical assessments and you will receive some treatment. From this point on I am happy to discuss what I would recommend for your treatment plan, and what fits in with your schedule.
As a rule of thumb for follow up treatments (though not in all cases), one area can be treated in 30 minutes, two specific areas of pain in 45min and two or more generalised areas of pain in 60 minutes.
From my experience, most benefit is received with 45-60min treatments once ever 4-6 weeks, depending on your medical history and current ailments.
My goal is to free you from your pain-cycle. The treatment plan I provide will not solely rely on me for manual treatment, but I will encourage you to perform exercises of your own so you are more able to take charge of what’s going on in your body and what you need to do for the long term.
Q: Do you do mobile massage?
A: Alas, no. That ship has sailed. But I am more than happy to see you in my Burwood abode, or connect with you here, online.
Q: Can I claim through my health fund?
A: Depending on your private health insurer, and you level of cover, you will be able to claim with most* health funds. *Please note, you will be unable to claim with Medibank or HCF.
