Specialist Massage Treatments

Lymphatic Drainage Massage - With Fiona

1hr Initial  - $125.00

1hr Regular  - $115.00

MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage) for Lymphoedema 1.5hr $165.

Lymphatic massage uses light, rhythmic touch to enhance lymph circulation. The action improves the flow of immune cells, making it easier for the body to fend off disease and infection. Increased lymph circulation also helps reduce the load on the body caused by wastes and toxins and can reduce fluid retention.

Lymphatic drainage is a technique used to reduce swelling, whether due to an injury such as ankle sprain, surgery such as for a knee or plastic surgery, from cancer treatment, or from an illness such as sinusitis or fibromyalgia. Lymphatic massage can reduce the pain and inflammation associated with fluid retention. The technique is known as MLD (manual lymphatic drainage), and coupled with medical compression, it is very effective for treating lymphoedema,the chronic accumulation of lymphatic fluid usually the result of damage to the lymphatic system.

Scar Tissue Release - With Fiona

1hr Initial  - $125.00

1hr Regular  - $115.00

Scar tissue is caused through trauma to the soft tissue of the body. Trauma may arise from injury in a car accident, cancer treatments such as radiotherapy, or surgery such as mastectomy, reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery, knee or hip reconstruction, and other  types of trauma. Such trauma can reduce the body's range of movement, causing pain and discomfort and the tissue to feel fibrous and hard.

 

Using trigger points, barrier release and light cupping techniques, scar areas are softened and tissue is released to allow for more movement and greater comfort, blood and lymphatic flow.

Psychological and emotional states may also improve as scar tissue is addressed and the patient experiences better integration and normalisation of the tissues.
