Remedial Massage

A warm, welcoming space for women to 
receive hands-on treatment and practical advice
so that they can life a fun filled life with family.

What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage is a name in which many techniques come under the umbrella to form part of your treatment. These techniques may include Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Stretching and Exercise Advice.

I refer to Remedial Massage as Massage with a purpose. I am working to target areas that are causing pain, discomfort or restriction of movement.

When you arrive to my Campbelltown Clinic, you will be welcomed in and asked to complete a new client questionnaire to help me understand the purpose of your visit and the areas to be addressed.

We will sit down for a chat about your history and today's issue. I will ask questions and discuss what I believe needs to be worked on. I will gain your agreement before we begin.

I will leave the room while  you undress to your level of comfort and lay on the table, covering yourself with a towel. I will commence the treatment, check your comfort and painful areas. We can chat or you can lay quietly, I will talk when I need to gauge your pain levels.

At the completion of our treatment, you'll get dressed and I will discuss any further treatment required, as well as tips for you to care for your body at home.

Family Friendly Clinic Space

I love babies and kids visiting us in our Campbelltown Clinic. You are welcome to bring your child with you as childcare isn't always available when you are in pain.

My room has plenty of space for a pram, playmat or sitting in our comfy chairs while you relax. Our waiting room also has a lounge for you to relax and breastfeed if needed. 

Empowered Women's Health Community

Together with Erin Bailey - Naturopath & Holistic Nutritionist, this group has been created as a safe space to discuss, share and learn about important issues impacting your health as a woman.

We aim to share useful health related information about the changes your body goes through in different stages of life, including pregnancy and post natal recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many types of massage styles out there and suit people differently.

Remedial Massage is performed by a Diploma Qualified Remedial Massage Therapist that is trained in soft tissue techniques targeted to improve function in the body. I am required to remain current with First Aid, continuing education, be fully insured and operate within a Code of Conduct. 

I am registered to be able to provide Health Fund Rebates via HICAPS.

I cannot tell you how much you will receive until after your treatment and the claim is processed through the HICAPS terminal. If you would like to confirm rebate amounts, please ensure you contact your health fund directly. You are also responsible for ensuring that you have appropriate health fund coverage and rebates available before your massage. If claim is not successful, you are liable for the costs of the treatment.

During Remedial Massage you may experience some discomfort but I do aim to keep it as comfortable as possible and work within your pain limits. I believe that your body needs to be able to relax and you be able to breathe to allow the tight areas we are working to ease. I aim to combine Remedial techniques with relaxation techniques to make it a more enjoyable experience.

You may experience some muscle aches following the massage similar to those you feel after a workout. Please know that this is not any damage and you can continue to move normally and gently as the discomfort settles. 

I do ask that you undress to your level of comfort. I can perform some techniques through the towel but often it is better to apply the techniques to your skin. If you prefer to leave your bra on, I can accommodate that and just unclip as I work through the back.

At all times underwear is to be worn as part of our Code of Conduct. There are no circumstances where it is acceptable to be treated without underwear. 

You have 3 options for Remedial Massage appointment duration:
* 30 minutes - this is ideal for one area to be targeted
* 60 minutes - this is our standard time and important to book this duration for your first massage so it allows enough time to assess and work through the areas of concern. In this time I can generally complete most of your body.
* 90 minutes - this is the extended time which allows us to work through your whole body or target multiple complex areas.
