Why use massage for general health?

Massage is essential maintenance for everyone. Most people wait until they are in pain before they have a massage, thinking it is all about their muscles. However, we know that regular therapeutic massage helps to maintain muscle integrity and posture, provides emotional relief and helps you to manage stress.

To make it easy for you to have regular massage, we provide massage services in our clinic, in your home and even on-ward in your hospital room.

The benefits of a therapeutic massage include:

  • “Feel good” chemicals in the brain such as endorphins (pain control) and serotonin (mood stabiliser) are released. It’s no wonder that massages are best for stress and anxiety — they promote mental and physical health and wellbeing.
  • Increased energy — By relieving the energy exerted from holding in muscle tension, you’re better able to live your life to the fullest.
  • Reduced symptoms of pain and injury — Whether you’re experiencing muscular tension, nervous tension or post-workout pains, our deep tissue and remedial massages can relieve these symptoms.
  • Improved overall bodily functions — A therapeutic massage loosens the muscles and increases blood flow to carry more oxygen and nutrients around the body, which can benefit overall health. This includes decreased blood pressure, improved heart rate and concentration, and mental alertness. Our relaxation massage is best for stress and anxiety, allowing you to experience deep, restful relaxation, mental and physical release, improved metabolism and increased wellbeing.
  • Improves lymphatic drainage and elimination of bodily toxins — Our specialised lymphatic drainage massage improves lymphatic and blood circulation, preventing and alleviating fluid retention, carpal tunnel type symptoms, numbness and pain from varicose veins.
  • Balances nervous system — Massage triggers the release of serotonin, which helps regulate your mood and boost your spirits!
  • Stimulates the immune system — A massage will flush toxins and increase blood flow throughout your body to increase the activity of white blood cells and help your body fight unwanted diseases.

How long should a full-body therapeutic massage take?

The duration of a therapeutic massage varies from our 30 minute Stress Head massage, to 60 minutes, to 90 minutes, depending on how long you have and the type of massage you select.

A 30-minute massage will focus on your head, scalp, neck and shoulders. It is an incredible relief for stress and tension and perfect if you only have a short time for a massage.

A 60-minute massage will give more time for your massage therapist to focus on any areas of need OR have time for a full body treatment.

A 90-minute massage will allow time for extra focus on areas of need AND a full body treatment.

Your needs will always be discussed with the massage therapists before you get on the table, and you are welcome to ask your practitioner to change focus at any time throughout your treatment.

Our online booking system does not always show availability for all 90-minute appointments. Please call us to see if we can fit you in sooner than you can see available online – 03 9419 9988.

What are the dos and don’ts before a therapeutic body massage?

Before your massage appointment, please visit the bathroom as required to prevent any digestive or bladder discomfort during your massage. We also recommend that you don’t drink or eat anything caffeinated to get the most relaxation benefit from your massage. If possible, avoid a heavy meal before your massage to prevent any discomfort. If you have eaten, you can ask your practitioner to spend more time with you laying on your back or side lying if it is more comfortable than lying on your stomach.

What are the dos and don’ts after a massage

Always drink extra water after a massage to help flush toxins from your body released during your massage. You may find you feel more thirsty – please drink pure, filtered water.

You may also feel sore if the massage therapist worked deeply in any areas – the soreness is similar to how you feel after doing exercise your body is not used to. This is from the release of lactic acid and is normal to experience in the 2 days following a massage. Stretching, extra hydration, rest, hot water (shower or bath) and time will all help this improve and you will hopefully find great benefit to this area when the pain (if any) settles.

If you ever experience any effects you are concerned about, please feel free to get in contact with us for reassurance.
