REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage Therapists in Carnegie

Physiolates have been providing comprehensive massage therapy to patients in Melbourne’s South East including; Carnegie, Glen Huntly, Caulfield & Ormond for over 20 years.

Remedial massage treats the body holistically and traces discomfort back to the source.  Remedial massage aims to assess and treat the connective tissues of the body, assisting with rehabilitation, pain and injury management. This type of deep tissue massage is an excellent source of pain relief. Additionally, remedial massage helps calm the peripheral nervous system, repairs tissue and relaxes muscles to improve joint mobility.

Relaxation massage, however, is designed to reduce stress and tension of the individual by promoting calmness and deep breathing. The treatments used by massage therapy involve physical contact and manual techniques that include fixed or movable pressure to a localised area or the whole body.

An initial consultation will include identifying reasons and goals for having a massage, the current physical condition and the patient’s medical history.

Conditions commonly treated include:

  • Sporting Injuries
  • Stiffness / pain associated with poor posture
  • Neck & Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Stress / tension
  • Whiplash
  • Overuse injuries such as tendonitis / RSI

Reflexology

Reflexology is a form of therapy that focuses on an individual’s feet. Therapists believe that different areas on your feet and hands correspond to other parts of your body. Through massage reflexology stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system, allowing it to heal itself. Reflexology has been credited with boosting circulation, stimulating the nervous system, relieving stress and anxiety as well as easing back pain. An hour spent enjoying reflexology has also been known to have a positive psychological impact.
