Therapeutic & Sports Massage

Most of our clients would agree that massage is an essential for stress management, rehabilitation or regular body maintenance and shouldn't be viewed as "just a treat" although there's not much else that makes for such a personalised gift!

All our massages include a consultation that doesn't come out of your table time. This gives us the chance to discuss your goals for the session, to select methods or techniques and plan a treatment specific to your needs at the time. We can also offer post care advice at the end of your session to help you continue the benefits of your massage for as long as possible

Therapeutic/Remedial Massage

All Massage is 'therapeutic' but 'therapeutic massage' commonly refers to deep tissue or remedial massage.

These treatments may include the use of trigger point, muscle energy, positional release, mobilization, myofascial techniques and more, to engage other tissues in the body that may be adhered other than muscles. This can allow more focused freedom of restricted areas and promotion of the healing process towards specific places like injuries.

The massage is conducted within your comfort zone but may bring the intensity level to the edge which could require a bit more communication with you but even with our most intense therapeutic massage we incorporate relaxation techniques to soothe and leave you feeling like you just had a really “good” massage.

Therapeutic Massage is useful as a tool in the rehabilitation of more serious injuries such as frozen shoulders, slipped discs and Occupational Overuse Syndromes.

Please Note: It is common during your first Therapeutic Massage for your Therapist to spend some extra time going through basic movement tests to help focus and refine your treatment. This may take up to 20 mins of your Table time.

 

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is Therapeutic Massage applied to sports people using a variety of techniques depending on your needs and training phase.

Sports Massage can be an essential part of a training schedule whether you're a professional or weekend athlete by helping to maintain optimal muscle health, increasing flexibility, reducing workout, event or injury recovery times or as a warm up/down tool at specific events.

Acupuncture

"Acupuncture is the solution for whole body health & wellbeing"

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a wonderful integrated health care to treat the whole body not just the isolated symptoms, to ease pain, heal and recover, balancing your body for overall health and vitality.

Acupuncture and TCM have been used successfully for many thousands of years, working with a profound pathway to restore balance on every level. It's a timeless bridge that can initiate and support change, healing and growth in any and all levels of this lifes dimension: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Your first visit will consist of a detailed case history, physical assessment and some treatment. Treatments may include any of the following techniques; Acupuncture, Moxabustion, Cupping, Nutrition and Herbal Medicines, Exercises, Tuning Forks, Magnets, Ear Seeds, Gusha, Tuina, Electro Acupuncture and Home Care.

A follow up appointment will consist of catching up on any changes, a physical assessment and treatment.

We offer a range of acupuncture serivces in our Wellington clinic. The number of treatments required depends on yourself as an individual and the nature of the condition. Normally you might need Acupuncture once or twice a week at first although some conditions may need less frequent attention. At other times the sessions can be very successful and you may only need one or two treatments while for others the effects are more subtle and they may need treatment over several months.

ACC CLIENTS: Please bring your ACC45 number on the day of your first visit or apply for one from your GP.

Should my Doctor know? If you are receiving treatment from your doctor it makes sense to let him or her know about your plans to have Acupuncture. The Acupuncture may enable you to reduce or even stop taking some forms of medication but your doctor should be consulted regarding any change of prescription.

For more information on conditions Acupuncture can treat contact Jayna at Absolute Therapy on 04)8018284 or visit her website www.bodylogicacupuncture.co.nz

Coaching with NLP

Coaching and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) are both exceptionally powerful tools for creating positive personal change. 

When combined they are a winning combination and have much to offer people.

A coach works in partnership with a client on areas where the client wants their life to b different. Coaching inspires new thinking and focuses on incremental and continuous change for the better.

NLP enables the person being coached to experience dramatic breakthroughs or learn new self-management skills in just a few sessions.

As such coaching with NLP is ideal for people who are interested in personal growth, performing to their full potential and achieving much more than they may have ever considered possible, easier and quicker.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic application of hypnosis.

It is a powerful form of communication that uses psychological procedures to generate change and healing.

It is an astonishingly quick and effective way of bringing about positive changes. It has a broad application base and is used to facilitate many different kinds of changes, for example: Behavioural changes: motivation, relaxation, confidence, stopping smoking, weight loss, anger management. Fears & phobias: flying, public speaking, spiders, heights. Health: Pain management, stress management, anxiety depression, IBS etc.

The best way to explain hypnotherapy is that it's like having someone gently guide you through a wonderfully relaxing daydream. It can be an incredibly soothing experience. In fact, during your hypnotherapy session, the hypnotherapist leads you into a calm and relaxed state of mind which is very similar to when you're totally absorbed in a very pleasant daydream. When you're in this incredibly calm state of mind the hypnotherapist can help you bypass your critical, logical mind and make beneficial, positive suggestions directly to your subconscious mind to change unwanted patterns of behaviour for the better.

Contrary to what is shown in movies or talked about in the media, hypnosis is not a mystical and magical process, but rather a rational, logical and learnable skill. That skill comprises a series of mental attitudes and strategies a person learns and adopts, as opposed to hypnosis being something that is 'done' to the person This essentially means the person takes ownership of, and is in control of the process, with the hypnotherapist simply acting as the skilled and experienced guide.

Dermal Needling

Dermal needling is also known as micro-needling or collagen induction therapy is a non-invasive, non-ablative facial rejuvenation procedure.
The use of a facial roller studded with very fine stainless steel needles or a mechanical pen-like instrument with medical grade needles in the tip creates controlled injury underneath the skin surface, inducing the body to respond by creating new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres as well as new capillaries for improved blood supply. The skin plumps and thickens, appearance of scars, lines and other skin texture changes are reduced.
 
Dermal Needling treatment is good for
 
•  Skin rejuvenation
•  Collagen induction therapy
•  Wrinkle reduction
•  Hyper pigmentation
•  Pore size reduction
•  Stretch marks
•  Acne scarring
•  Hair loss therapy
 
Booking's need to be made with your Beauty Therapist once a full skin consultation has been completed. For best results we will begin by getting you to do some pre treatment home care 2-4 weeks prior to a course of Dermal Needling treatments beginning. Your home roller should then be used 1 week after your first Dermal Needling treatment at Absolute Therapy.
 
How it works
As the micro-needles move over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures in the skin, the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process. You encourage your skin to continue healing through this micro-needling process.
Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are repaired, but with micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself. The process of micro-needling skin remodeling can go on for months after each Dermal needling treatment. Results can be seen within a week or even a few days. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little micro-needling stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.
Skin Micro-Needling is now one of the most sought after treatments in the celebrity world and is endorsed by many celebrities including Jennifer Anniston, Kim Kardashian & Angelina Jolie.
 
 
Q&A:
 
Does it hurt?
No, not at all. Prior to your Dermal needling treatment, an anesthetic cream is applied to numb your skin. You will feel the Pen/roller on your skin, so you will feel sensation, but no pain.
 
  • How Many Treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed does vary depending on the condition being treated, but the following are very good guidelines:
· Acne Scarring 4-6 Treatments, 6 weeks apart.
· Skin Rejuvenation/Collagen Induction 4-6 Treatments, 4 weeks apart.
 
  • What can I expect after treatment?
The treated area will be red for 12-48 hours and your skin may feel warmer and tighter than usual. You should keep your face free of make-up that day. After that the redness can be minimized with a concealer. The skin may flake slightly 2-3 days after the procedure.
 
  • How long do the results last?
The results from micro-needling skin remodeling can go on for months after each Dermal needling treatment. Results can be seen from one to eight weeks later. Typically you will see results after your first treatment.
Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments when spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with micro-needling stimulation changes can be effective and ongoing. Full effects of skin tightening might not show until 6months after your last treatment.
 
  • Should I Prepare My Skin Before Having A Dermal needling Treatment?
For faster recovery times and optimal results we recommend using an effective active treatment cream with Vitamin A and C for a period pre and post treatment to allow your skin to build up the levels of these vitamins needed to optimise healing and repair.
If treating a specific skin condition such as acne, scars or pigmentation, then other pre & post products will be recommended.
 
  • Are there any side effects?
Side effects experienced with the Dermal needling will usually subside within 24-48 hours. They include erythema, stinging, itching, tightness of the skin.*
 
  • What should I do after treatment?
Using tepid water to cleanse the face for the first 48 hours following treatment and drying the area gently without rubbing; ensuring that hands are always clean when touching the area treated, to avoid infections;
not applying conventional make-up products to the skin for the first 12 hours following treatment, some mineral based make-up products are able to be applied as recommended by your practitioner; applying a broad spectrum sunscreen product with a high SPF.
 
  • Who should not undergo this procedure?
Skin needling treatment is suitable for all skin types, including dark skins.
 
  • However, it is not suitable for clients who have:
  • Used Roaccutane within the last 3 months
  • Open wounds, cuts or abrasions to the skin
  • Had radiation treatment within the last year
  • A current outbreak of herpes simplex (cold sores) or any other infection or chronic skin condition in the area to be treated
  • Areas of the skin that are numb or lack sensation
  • Have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing
  • Have active acne
  • Skin needling is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women due to a number of minor reasons. The needles produce micro-injuries which trigger the natural wound healing response. This wound healing and production of new collagen requires vitamins and nutrients which would otherwise be needed for the baby so it is suggested to not be used during pregnancy.
  • Another minor reason is simply increasing the chances of infection which is never a good idea when pregnant.

Homeopathy

A safer, gentle approach to health care

Homeopathy was developed over 200 years ago by chemist and doctor; Samuel Hahnemann. He was tired of the harsh medical procedures of his day, and wanted to create a safe, more gentle approach to health care.

Homeopathy is based on 3 main principles:

Like-cures-like
The similarity of symptoms a substance causes in a healthy person, vs the symptoms we are treating. Eg. The homeopathically prepared medicine made from coffee, can help treat restlessness and insomnia. The same symptoms some people get after one espresso too many! Like cures like is also found in conventional medicine. For example Ritalin, which is a stimulant, is used to treat hyperactivity.  

Minimal doseage
In Homeopathy we use the smallest amount of medicine needed to stimulate a healing response from your body.

Individualised remedies
We treat you as a whole person, not just your symptoms. Everyone responds to a cough, backache, or depression differently. So you need an individual medicine for you.

With your participation, a thorough medical history will be taken, questions will be asked not only relating to your physical symptoms, but also some mental, emotional and environmental aspects. I support the involvement of other practitioners to assist in maintaining your well-being, help your recovery, or reduce side-effects of medications.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
 
The lymphatic system is an important part of our immune system. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) simply assists the body’s lymph flow and may help support a healthy immune system. One needs to imagine the lymph system as like the body’s waste disposal. It is responsible for cleansing our tissues and maintaining a balance of fluids within the body. It filters waste matter and harmful cells (via lymph nodes) and drains back into large veins of the body just behind the collarbone, on each side of the neck, goes back to the heart and is removed from the body as urine. MLD is often referred to as being a type of massage, however, typically no oil or wax is used during the treatment and it is very gentle and extremely relaxing. Circular rhythmic movements and strokes are used during the treatment.
 
MLD is most commonly associated with the treatment of lymphoedema:
 
What is Lymphoedema/water retention?
 
Most of us will have experienced a bit of swelling in our lower legs at the end of a long working day or after a long period of just standing or sitting down. Now this is considered to be very mild water retention. More specifically, it is a collection of lymphatic fluid in the tissues under the skin. Oedema occurs, when lymph fluid cannot flow as efficiently because some glands may have been removed in surgery or damaged by i.e. radiation therapy. Some early signs of significant water retention include: mild intermittent swelling, tightness or aching and/or heaviness in the affected limb.
 
Who may benefit from Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

Relaxation Massage

Most of our clients would agree that massage is an essential for stress management, rehabilitation or regular body maintenance and shouldn't be viewed as "just a treat" although there's not much else that makes for such a personalised gift!

When making a booking just book the amount of time you want to pay for. All our massages include a consultation that doesn't come out of your table time. This gives us the chance to discuss your goals for the session, to select methods or techniques and plan a treatment specific to your needs at the time. We can also offer post care advice at the end of your session to help you continue the benefits of your massage for as long as possible

 

Double Massages

Share the joy of your usual Relaxation, Therapeutic or Hot Stone Massage with a friend, family member or loved one by your side in one of our two spacious Double Massage rooms. This service needs to be arranged directly through the clinic.

 

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage employs the use of volcanic rocks to rapidly impart large amounts of heat to the body. Relaxation Massage techniques are then used to ‘smooth out the knots’ and make the most of the heat in your muscles.

We only offer this as a 90min option as we believe this allows you to experience the full glory of this deeply calming and indulgent treatment. Hot Stone Massage makes the perfect gift for a special occasion!

 

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is a time to be nurtured. A pregnancy massage relaxes, re-energizes, helps to reduce swelling, addresses back pain and makes you feel good all over.

Your therapist understands the many changes occurring during and post pregnancy and adapts the massage to suit your needs by having you lie comfortably on your side, bolstered with pillows and massaged with pregnancy friendly oils.

Please note: We only offer Pregnancy Massage during the second and third trimesters.
 
 

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage is often referred to as 'Sweedish Massage.' We regard it as one of the most self indulgent ways to do something truly beneficial for your body.

This primary objective is to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system to enduce relaxation. Your body enters it's 'rest and digest' phase and allows you to rest, heal and regenerate. This is ideal for your average Wellington City lifestyle especially if you work a fairly sedentary job and have a busy home life to boot. Some people like a very light pressure while others enjoy a firmer touch. Usually flowing and flushing or wringing type of strokes are used and you will find the massage to be quite balanced, covering more of the body where as a Therapeutic Massage may focus the majority of your session time in a more localised area. We will use our consultation time and our experience to find out and give you what you need.

Consultation (45mins)

In this appointment we talk about the your pre care and the appropriate treatment for the desired outcome. We do a patch test for any reactions to the pigment and tint and shape the brows prior to the treatment. At this appointment I will answer any questions the client may have and give forms to read and sign through before the treatment takes place.

Microblading/Feathering/3D Brows (2hrs)

We use a manual tool to create the most natural brows possible. Using ultra-fine hair strokes to boost the existing brows you are looking to achieve. This technique will create a realistic brow, transforming the shape, position and colour of your brows.

Powder Brows (2hrs)

Achieved with a small hand held machine, colour is implanted in a way similar to that of a tattoo yet not as deeply which will give options to make changes over time with fading. Powder colour is popular among those looking to achieve shape and definition, giving a similar finish to that of brow pencils or powders.

Combination Brows (2hrs)

A mixture of both stroke and powder techniques which gives the brow a defined look with soft strokes towards the inside of the brow. A winning combination and a popular choice for many.

Eyeliner Top & Bottom (2hrs)

Enhancing the eyes by adding definition throughout the lashes and above. We can add thickness, length and colour to emphasize the shape and colour of your eyes. 

Eyeliner Top or Bottom (1.5hrs)

Here we work in either area to enhance where necessary.

Lip Blend, Enhancement or Full Lip Creation (2.5hrs)

This treatment can create fuller lips, hide fine lines around the lip line, create balance and restore colour to faded lips. We can add definition by using a colour similar to your natural tones or add full colour to match your favourite lipstick shade.Reshaping ueven lips. uneven lips.

Beauty Spot: (1hr max)

Beauty spots or freckles can now be achieved by anyone with this treatment.

All treatments require a top up or perfecting appointment within 4-6 weeks of the initial treatment at a cost of $100-$150 depending on the colour retention. This is a part of the treatment as a whole as most clients will notice fading of 40%-70%. We will not consider the treatment to be completed until the top up/perfecting treatment has been completed. In some cases there will need to be more frequent top ups, this can be due to medications, aftercare or skin types, this will be discussed at the time of the consultation.
