Remedial & Sports Massage

How can you prevent muscle tightness and injuries?

We have the answer!

How many times have you waited months to get that injury checked out?
How frustrated have you felt stopping exercise or putting off training for weeks because of a muscle injury?
We see many people coming in with injuries that could have easily been prevented had the muscles just been kept loose!

Our therapists are experts in their field and have worked with top AFL teams such as Melbourne & Essendon Football Clubs and the Melbourne Victory (Soccer) so you know you are in great hands!

By employing techniques from remedial and sports massage modalities as well as providing you with appropriate rehabilitation programs specific to your sport or exercise class, our team will have you back in action in no time - because lets face it, we know how frustrating it can be sitting on the side lines!

If you are not injured that's even better. We can help optimise your exercise performance with individually tailored treatments to keep your muscles feeling supple and ready to take on the task at hand. Injury prevention is our main game and it should be your too!

Sports Therapy is a profession that helps to manage the physical fitness of anyone engaged in sports and exercise on a regular basis. Whether you are a weekend warrior or avid athlete a sports therapist can help get you back on track.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is essential to help with body movement. Massage techniques used during a treatment help to increase blood flow to the muscles in order to reduce  tightness. Loose muscles have more power when put under the stress and strain of everyday activity and regular massage can significantly decrease the chances of an injury  occurring.

We treat many office workers with:

  • headaches

  • back, neck, shoulder pain and injuries

  • RSI injuries


All due to bad posture adapted throughout a day attending to computer work and phone use! For this reason we recommend massage for a range of issues - not just sports injury.

Our therapists will provide you with a personally tailored program designed to maintain your muscle fitness and minimise additional injury through ongoing treatments every 4-6 weeks. So get in touch today!
