- Myofascial Cupping – This massage is an adaptation of traditional Chinese cupping and utilises a pump action to draw up the skin, fascial tissue and superficial muscle layers into cups. This action helps to increase blood flow and nutrients to the area and creates a broad soft tissue release. Cupping can help to break down adhesion, increase range of movement, decrease pain and reduce inflammation. It can be a stand alone massage treatment or easily blended in with other massage treatments.

- Remedial massage – Remedial massage focuses on treating a particular injury or condition through a range of massage and stretching techniques. The treatment will include a systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial massage aims to reduce or eliminate pain, and restore normal function of muscles and joints, aid recovery from injury and improve posture. It can help increase joint mobility and flexibility, stimulate the lymphatic system and promote blood flow, particularly to injured areas.
