Sports Massage

Sports Massage is used for injury management and prevention, pre and post sports event preparation and recovery, flexibility, endurance and increased performance. It can be regularly incorporated into the athlete’s training program to optimize performance and enhance body maintenance and health management.

                                  

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage is a gentle and relaxing massage style based on the four basic Swedish Massage techniques.  Swedish Massage is most commonly used for feeling revitalized and renewed by providing relaxation and removing muscular tension in the body.  This style of massage will have a real sedating effect on the body and is perfect for all ages and most conditions,  especially those related to stress.

Relaxation Massage not only calms the nervous system,  it works wonders for removing muscular tension by increasing the circulation of blood and lymph,  flushing out toxins and 'plumping' up the muscles with fresh nutritious blood.  Because of this you are giving your immune system a much needed boost to help improve your overall health.

Relaxation or Swedish Massage is a major component of Remedial Massage Therapy.

                                     

 


Stress Management

Massage for Stress Management

Take some time out from your busy schedule and enjoy a well deserved massage. There’s nothing better than leaving work or a hectic home environment and walking into a welcoming, relaxing room that oozes “time out” with soothing background music, gentle aromatics and of course...you’re favorite Massage Therapist wearing a warm and welcoming smile...just for you!

Massage for stress management makes use of a variety of Remedial, Relaxation Massage techniques and intuitively selected Essential Oil blends, with depth and pressure of the massage tailored to suit your individual needs.

Massage soothes away the physical effects of stress and accumulated tensions by initiating a sedating affect on the body. Pure Essential Oils play an important role in Stress Management Massage. Along with the many other benefits of massage, essential oils help to initiate an even deeper relaxation experience and address many hormonal/emotional imbalances whilst also promoting a return to normal sleep patterns.

Quality sleep is an essential requirement for the bodies self healing and recovery processes, especially when we are experiencing extra stress in our lives.

  
              

 

oncology massage (also modified for aged care and disability)

Oncology Massage is a specially modified, very light and very gentle Massage and Comfort Touch Therapy specifically designed for those clients undergoing cancer treatment or in recovery.

It is also a safe muscular and pain relieving therapy for people with Disability, Spinal Cord Injuries, Aged Care and conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Motor Neurone Disease (MND), Stroke and Cerebral Palsy etc.     

                            

Special Oncology Massage (OM) training is required for this type of massage. A client with cancer or a history of cancer requires several treatment adjustments. As a caring holistic therapist I know that a comforting touch is essential for people undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment and other operations.    

There are 4 levels of Oncology Massage training with OM levels 3 & 4 requiring specialised hospital training. I have only completed Oncology Massage Level 2 (OM2) which unfortunately does not qualify me to work within the hospital system. (see link below for levels 3&4 hospital qualified OM Therapists in your area). 

I have been working on a weekly basis with MND, MS and Disability clients in Port Macquarie and the surrounding areas for almost 5 years. Therefore, my OM2 and Remedial Massage qualifications can most certainly help you by safely offering some relief from muscular and nerve pain, oedema (aka edema) and providing a moment of peace, relaxation and the opportunity to re-connect with your physical, emotional and spiritual self. 

Important ....Carers also need support !!

Gift vouchers for that very special Carer, partner, family member or friend are a wonderful idea to show your appreciation for their ongoing care and support.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the ancient, therapeutic practice of using pure essential oils that have been extracted from a variety of aromatic plants throughout the world.

Aromatherapy is more than a gentle massage sequence using aromatic oils - the Pure Essential Oils have many healing properties that have been utilized for hundreds of years, using a variety of application methods. Aromatherapy is a powerful, holistic healing practice useful for many health conditions of the skin, muscles, emotions, organs and hormones.

Aromatherapy is especially useful for treating and managing stress and stress related conditions.

An Aromatherapy massage is a gently relaxing, revitalizing and harmonising massage using individually chosen essential oils for your specific skin type and/or health and medical conditions. The combination of the aromatic blends, plus the direct physical massage causes powerful healing responses, thus having a positive holistic, balancing effect on one's spirit, soul and body.

The essential oils are carefully blended with a carrier oil (Pure Australian Macadamia Oil ) and massaged into the skin, where they are absorbed and diffused slowly into the blood and lymph systems via the hair follicles.
There are other application methods used for specific conditions such as a diffuser, compresses, body/face creams and lotions, inhalers and shampoo and body washes. For the greatest therapeutic benefits, it is best to avoid showering for at least 6 hours after an Aromatherapy Massage.

Please be aware that quality and purity is of great importance when selecting and utilising Essential Oils and their natural Carrier Oils. As a qualified Aromatherapist I can develop an individualized Aromatherapy Treatment Plan for further treatments and home care if desired. This includes the advice and provision of simple, easy to follow healthy living / lifestyle suggestions and individually blended products for many of your personal health and beauty needs.
