Suffering from pain, tightness or muscular tension throughout your body?

WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE?

Sports massage tips from our Chatswood & North Sydney therapists

  • Schedule your massage carefully: Ensure that you don’t schedule a therapy session too close to an event, especially if you are new to massage. Having a massage just before a race can put you at risk of soreness, so plan to receive one at least 48 hours before your event. If you are just beginning massage therapy, your first treatment should take place at least a few weeks before a race.
     

  • Arrive hydrated: Ensure you prepare for your massage by sipping plenty of water before the appointment to be certain that you are well hydrated. Arriving dehydrated to your treatment can cause your fascia and muscles to stiffen, which can lead to a less comfortable massage session.
     

  • Be prepared to move around: While a sports massage can be relaxing after treatment, during your session, you will likely experience movement and physical interaction with your massage therapist. Ensure that you wear loose clothing to make movements and treatment of the affected area easier. To further encourage your recovery, follow the guidance of your therapist and complete additional recommended exercises at home.

The benefits of remedial massage at our Chatswood & North Sydney clinics

  • Correcting postural issues: Common causes of neck, shoulder, and back pain include poor posture, which puts stress on the body. Our massage therapists can help to design a treatment plan that addresses postural issues, lengthens and stretches muscles to relieve tension, and helps to realign your body.
     

  • Increasing joint mobility and flexibility: Some symptoms of chronic and acute conditions such as arthritis, shoulder pain, sciatica, and overusing muscles are caused by muscles tension around the joints. Our therapists can tailor a massage to help relieve stiffness, discomfort, and decreased flexibility while improving joint strength, stability, and mobility.
     

  • Reducing stress: A remedial massage can help to reduce stress in the body by affecting neurohormones that regulate behaviour and emotions. Endorphins release, while cortisol levels decrease, which results in a mood-enhancing effect that can reduce some of the symptoms of depression and anxiety, increase energy levels, and improve sleep.
