Massage Therapy

Massage Lane Cove provides a comprehensive range of high-quality massages for all circumstances.

Massage therapy involves the manual manipulation of the body’s soft tissues such as the muscles, tendons and ligaments with the goal of enhancing your wellbeing. Massage therapy has been proven to be effective for reducing pain, aiding recovery, reducing Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) and improving athletic performance.

Massage Therapy has dozens of modalities and methods including:

  • Remedial massage – perfect for treating sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and much more, your physio will assess your pain and tailor a treatment plan to suit
  • Swedish massage – where a therapist will utilise a range of movements such as long strokes, kneading, vibration, and tapping
  • Sports massage – adapted to the needs of athletes, sports massage combines techniques of Swedish massage and deep tissue massage to release chronic muscle tension
  • Myofascial release – focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in ‘trigger points’ commonly manifesting as ‘knots’ in the back or sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues

Regular massage is beneficial to assist in the recovery of an existing soft tissue injury or as a preventative treatment, allowing the muscles to rest, relax and recover from daily stresses. You can incorporate massage into your physiotherapy treatment or book a direct appointment for a massage in the comforts of a private room.

Research shows that massage therapy can help with:

  • back pain
  • headache
  • osteoarthritis
  • depression and anxiety
  • digestive disorders
  • strains or soft tissue injuries

(Health Fund rebates are available for most health funds).

Massage therapy provided by a trained physiotherapist is designed to target the source of the body’s pain easing tense muscles, increasing flexibility and providing relaxation to the body as a whole. Massage therapy is also effective at promoting circulation to the injured muscles which increases nutrients and oxygen, helping to heal the damaged tissues. This increased circulation further increases flexibility and reduces pain. In an added benefit, massage therapy also releases endorphins which boost hormone levels in the body. These hormones assist the body physically as well as emotionally, promoting healing, pain management, and feelings of euphoria, as well as helping to calm the nerves.

Our massage therapists provide a range of treatments suitable for everyone from the general public through to elite athletes.

So whether you’re feeling tight around the shoulders and neck from clocking up the hours at work, lower back pain from sitting at a desk all day, on the road to recovery from an injury or just playing too hard, massage is sure to provide some welcome relief.
