Ballarat Remedial Massage Therapy
Remedial Massage Therapy with us
WHAT IS remedial massage therapy?
Remedial Massage Therapy is a hands-on health treatment aimed at assisting the body in rediscovering its natural state of balance. It does this through encouraging optimal health of muscles, the movement of joints, the release of tension in the connective tissues (fascia), the promotion of blood and lymph flow and promoting deep relaxation for your body and mind.
This is an excellent therapy that complements osteopathy, physiotherapy and exercise physiology to provide a comprehensive maintenance and prevention program to keep you fit, healthy and happy.
Massage at Eureka Osteo is part of a team approach to healthcare where we utilise a wide range of expertise, resources and equipment to meet your personal needs. Our massage therapists will listen to you and work with you to determine a plan to help reach your goals, whether they be to reduce pain and stiffness, improve movement or improve your general wellbeing. Our therapists have special interests in managing and preventing endurance athlete injuries and fatigue, pregnancy massage, stress and anxiety management, and promoting optimal health and wellbeing.
There are a range of different massage techniques used here and firmness or pressure can vary according to your preference so let us know if you have one.
All our therapists have a provider number so you can claim through HICAPS if you have private insurance on the day of your appointment.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT
We will always begin with a brief chat about why you have come for a massage, what and where your symptoms are, other health practitioners you may regularly see or have seen in the past, your daily habits and any notable injuries or chronic conditions in your medical history.
You should expect to remove some or most of your clothing except your underwear. Your privacy will always be respected and you will be draped, kept warm and comfortable throughout so you can relax as much as possible.
We offer two different appointment types: 1 hour and 30 minutes. We recommend if you have more then one area of your body causing problems to book the 1 hour appointment first enabling enough time to assess and treat all areas.
