Remedial Massage
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibre’s of the muscles, tendons and fascia.

Sports Massage
A technique used for injury prevention, pre and post-sports events. Here massage aids in preparation and recovery, flexibility, endurance and increased performance.

Lymphatic Drainage
The lymphatic system is essential as the body's drainage system for cleansing and filtering out of bacteria and toxins. Unblocks congested lymph pathways that can cause soreness, aches, pains and flu-like symptoms. Performed in a series of a full detoxification cleanse program, this form of massage helps the body to heal itself from many common maladies. As with most massage, it‘s vital to drink lots of water after lymphatic massage.

Pregnancy Massage
Uses a combination of Swedish and Remedial Massage techniques, to assist with the tensions and pains experienced during pregnancy. These are often caused by the extra weight and shift in the centre of gravity. There are many physical benefits to Pregnancy Massage, in addition to the nurturing and emotional support provided by Mark. Massage reduces peripheral swelling, soothes the nervous system, helps to prevent insomnia, muscle cramps and back pain.

Dry Needling / Acupuncture  
Useful modality to provide pain relief and assist injury rehabilitation. Most commonly back pain. However, acupuncture can be used to treat nearly all sources of muscle and joint pain and myofascial dysfunction. Dry needling or intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a technique extremely effective for relaxing overactive muscles, which contain trigger points.



Relaxation Therapy
A classic form of full body massage that relaxes the body, improves muscle tone, and stimulates circulation, providing feelings of tranquillity and heightened well-being.

Stress Management  
When pressure exceeds one's perceived ability to cope not only causes tension, tight muscles and pain throughout the body, but is mentally challenging and tiring. Nurturing and emotional support will lead to improvement in stress and reduce tension. Talk to Mark about a Stress Management Program.
