All Massage is therapeutic but ‘therapeutic massage’ commonly refers to deep tissue or remedial massage.
Our therapeutic / sports massage therapists all hold a level 6 Diploma or higher and are registered with Massage New Zealand. These practitioners are able to provide insurance rebates – please leave us a note with your booking.
All our therapeutic and sports massage sessions include a consultation that doesn’t come out of the ‘table time’ you pay for. This gives us the chance to discuss your goals for the session, select suitable methods or techniques and to 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
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.
Our therapists often like to offer you simple home-care to assist you between sessions.
Therapeutic / Sports 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.
