Remedial Massage

Key benefits of remedial massage include the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility.

Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with remedial massage include muscle tightness and pain, arthritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, whiplash, neck and back pain, scoliosis, headaches and sports injuries.


Shiatsu is a form of bodywork, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), designed to promote and maintain the body’s natural balance. During shiatsu, pressure is applied to points and energy pathways using fingers, thumbs, palms, elbows or feet. This improves circulation and supports the body’s natural energy flow, both of which contribute to healing. Gentle stretches and limb rotations are used to help free joints and release muscle tension. Other techniques such as cupping, may be used to assist in releasing or nourishing areas of the body.

Shiatsu can promote the body’s healing and alleviate issues arising from:

  • Stress/anxiety, depression and fatigue
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Headaches and migraine
  • Joint pain and reduced mobility
  • Digestive and respiratory problems
  • Menstrual problems and PMT

Shiatsu can be blended together with Reiki – another hands-on healing technique from Japan – to create a unique treatment for each client. Alternatively, the two modalities can be given individually, as treatments in their own right.

Shiatsu and Reiki are given on a massage table with the client wearing loose, comfortable clothing.
