Remedial or Deep Tissue Massage

Deep and firm pressure to influence the tight muscle fibres to release the tension under the muscle group.

Pregnancy Massage

Massage will be performed either in side-lying or on our pregnancy belly pillow (has a cut out for the baby, so lying on tummy is feasible). Massage reduces peripheral swelling, soothes the nervous system, helps to prevent insomnia, muscle cramps and back pain.

Combined Remedial with Traditional Chinese Medicine

With a history of 2000 to 3000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness. The TCM approach is fundamentally different from that of Western medicine. In TCM, the understanding of the human body is based on the holistic understanding of the universe as described in Daoism, and the treatment of illness is based primarily on the diagnosis and differentiation of syndromes. Health is more than just the absence of disease, and TCM recognises this with its unique capacity to harmonise and enhance our capacity for enjoyment fulfillment and happiness.

TCM consists of:
  • herbal therapy
  • acupuncture
  • dietary therapy
  • exercise
  • lifestyle management

Some or several of these may be employed in the course of your treatment.

Jie Huang is our current practitioner who will carry out this combined massage technique.

Massage benefits:

As all massage sessions are by appointment, we have a 24 hour cancellation policy where you will be subjected to a fee if a session is cancelled with less than 24 hour notice. This also applies to cases of ‘no-show’. HICAPS available for Health Fund Rebates. Please check with your health fund for eligibility for remedial massage rebate.
