Massage is well known for stress management, and relieving muscular injury. Remedial massage therapy works by assisting to increase the blood flow, locate and repair damaged tissues and support the body’s own repair mechanisms. Specialist strokes and movements aim to support the affected areas, and allow the healing process to take place. Regular massage will not only ease tension pain and joint stiffness, it helps stimulate the cardiovascular system, detox the body and improves your immune function.
Prenatal Massage is specially designed to support and nurture pregnant women and their changing bodies. Prenatal Massage will ease aches and pains, relax muscles, improve circulation, reduce swelling in hands and feet, and relieve fatigue. Prenatal massage treatment is also deeply relaxing and calms the body and mind.
Acupressure massage uses the Chinese meridian system to balance the bodies energy. Instead of using needles acupressure uses pressure applied by the practitioner on the acupuncture points. The practitioner may also use electrical stimulation similar to TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). Acupressure is often used to stimulate labour when the pregnancy is at full term.
A TENS machine is an advanced, small, battery powered device which sends a pulsed electrical stimulus via pads to the skin. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) stimulates the release of endorphins & uses the gate theory of pain relief as researched by "Melzack & Wall". TENS machines have been in use since the 1960's and over the years have become smaller, portable and easier to use.
New digital machines mean no expertise required to program and use them, so now available for home use by the general public. Our TENS machines are hospital grade professional machines included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (TGA).
