Our massage therapists specialise in techniques that can improve the normal function and mobility of MSK tissue.
These include muscle energy and mobility techniques, which the latter can be done passively, assisted, or resisted. Sport and deep tissue massage therapists are experts in trigger points techniques, which target muscle “knots” to reduce tension, tightness and restore normal muscle function without pain.
We also offer myofascial release, which can decrease fascial tensions and improve muscle movements to prevent injuries such as shin splints.
Our skilled massage therapist offers a range of massages to address various concerns.
For instance, they can perform lymphatic drainage massage to alleviate swelling and negative effects of surgery, injury, or cancer treatment. Our therapist can complement their massage with cupping to promote healing and increase circulation, ideal to relieve back pain.
