injuries, muscular aches and pains.
Sports massage is a type of massage that is specifically tailored to sporting injuries or preventing
injuries before the activity. It is not meant to be a relaxing massage and can become quite vigorous at times.
Sports massage is not only utilized by professional sports people or for anybody.
Trigger Point Therapy is the application of pressure to trigger points (hypersensitive areas in the
soft tissue caused by tension within muscle fibre). Often these trigger points result in referred pain in
another part of the body. For instance lower back pain, 'cricked' neck, joint pain, headaches etc. Detection
and release of these trigger points results in reduction or elimination of this pain and discomfort.

fully clothed and is a very relaxing and non invasive therapy. It was developed by Dr Randolph Stone Polarity Therapy,
which heals by activating the Chi energy and balancing the natural life force energy fields around the body. Universal
energy flows through all of nature, and as we are a part of nature, the energy also flows through and sustains us by the
law of opposites.
Mobile Massages are provided by some remedial massage therapists for clients who are either unable to attend a
Massage Clinic or find it more convenient to have a treatment at their own home. Elderly or convalescing people could
find this to be a very useful option, as would the parents of young children who do not have child care. Services are
also offered at some hotels for business people and visitors and this can be arranged through the hotel's concierge.
Traditional Thai massage is a type of massage in Thai style that involves stretching and deep massage. This form
of bodywork is usually performed on the yoga mat and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. It is
like lazy man yoga. No oils are used in Traditional Thai massage.
Myofascial Cupping Myofascial Cupping is a safe and non-invasive technique for effective release of connective tissue or fascia, and muscle hyperirritability. Myofascial Cupping is a modern adaptation of the traditional style cupping which differs by specifically targets the Musculoskeletal system rather than the meridian systems used by traditional Chinese practitioners.
It is used by plastic cups and vacuum suction to increase the nutrient – rich blood supply to the injured or scared tissue area. This creates a negative pressure which passively stretches myofascial tissue and results in increasing the ROM ( Range of Motion ). Myofascial Cupping assists in reduction of the local inflammation and aids the recovery.
A Massage for Vital Health Myofascial cupping treatment can be added to any style and length of massage booked for an additional $10*.
