Sports Massage

This is an application of massage, not a particular technique. The type of technique or treatment applied is dependent on the nature of the stage of training or competition, sports injury or condition and the assessment of the massage therapist. Sports massage is a blend of techniques that aim to enhance the performance and help muscles recover quickly.

Recommended treatment time: 60 or 90 minutes

Recommended therapist – Simone Pietersma

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are hyper-irritable points in soft tissue that restrict the ability of a muscle to effectively contract and relax. This can cause pain – both referred and local – and can decrease range of motion. Compression to the area is applied to release the muscle restriction. Most often this technique is used in remedial and deep tissue massage. 

Recommended treatment time 45, 60, 90 minutes depending on how many areas need treatment

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage provides many benefits for the expectant mother. It is common to experience symptoms such as muscle fatigue, lower back discomfort and swelling of the legs, just to name a few. We have specialty cushions to allow for the growing belly or a side-lying massage to make you as comfortable as possible. Our therapists have qualifications through “Pregnancy Massage Australia” so you know you’re in the best possible hands.

Recommended treatment time 45 or 60 minutes

Recommended therapists – Lizzie O’Donoghue, Sue Bickmore, Simone Pietersma 

 

Cupping Therapy

There are many different forms of cupping therapy. Here at Simply Natural our therapists have extensive training in all forms, and can best decide what type to use on each  individual. All forms of cupping work on the same principle of producing negative pressure (suction) on the muscle and connective tissue, creating a stretch and improving circulation. Some forms of cupping produce redness on the skin that can last a few days. Cupping is usually incorporated with Remedial Massage.

Recommended treatment 60 – 90 minutes including remedial massage

Traditional Flame Cupping

Known to most as “Chinese” cupping or “flame” cupping, this technique goes back many centuries and is still widely use today because of the great effects it provides by removing toxins that accumulate in the body, getting the lymphatic system working effectively and reducing tightness. Not suitable for people on blood thinners or have sensitive or fragile skin.

Myofascial Cupping

“Myofascial” or “Modern” cupping uses silicone cups or pump cups, and is less likely to cause redness than the traditional cupping.  Great for treating ailments such as Plantar Fasciitis, sciatica and arthritic pain.

Shiatsu Treatment for Headaches

Shiatsu can relieve tension headaches and reduce the severity of migraines, by applying pressure with the fingertips and thumbs to specific points on the fore head, temple, skull and back or the neck. It can be used on anyone regardless of age or health. It can also promote a deep level of relaxation, improve sleep patterns, and increase energy levels. (If you are wanting this treatment please request Sue or Simone who have extensive training in this method). Can be included in Remedial Massage.

Recommended treatment time 30 to 60 minutes

Recommended therapists – Simone Pietersma or Sue Bickmore

Foot and Leg Massage

We spend so much time on our feet and give them so little attention. Having a leg and foot massage brings relief to tired aching feet & legs, improves circulation and reduces fluid retention by stimulating lymphatic flow, plus it just feels amazing!! Your feet will love you for it.

Recommended treatment time 30, 45 or 60 minutes

Hot Stone Massage

Smooth heated stones made from Basalt (volcanic rock) are massaged over the body with oil melting away aches and pains. The heat from the rocks provide deep relief by warming up the muscles allow a deep massage without applying intense pressure.

The Benefits of Massage

There are many benefits to having regular massage treatments. One of the immediate benefits is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This happens because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol are reduced. High levels of stress hormones impair the immune system and can have detrimantal effects on us longterm. 

Some of the physical benefits of massage include:

  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Stimulates the lymphatic system
  • Reduces stress
  • Increases joint mobility and flexibility
  • Faster recovery for soft tissue injuries
  • Heightened mental alertness
  • Improves skin tone

What conditions do people see a remedial massage therapist for?  

  • Shoulder, neck and back pain
  • Health and wellness maintenance, improving health generally
  • Injury prevention
  • Reducing stress and tension reduction
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sports injury management and rehab
  • Occupational over use, repetitive strain
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic fatigue, fibro-myalgia
  • Cancer treatment support eg. pain, lymphedema, anxiety
  • Anxiety and depression
