Remedial massage focuses on identifying the underlying cause of musculoskeletal dysfunction. Remedial massage involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques designed to locate and repair damaged areas in your body, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. Remedial massage can stimulate the blood supply and make joints more mobile. Regular remedial massage will assist in managing recurrent injury or prevention.

Benefits of remedial massage include:

  • Relieve muscle tension
  • Deep Relaxation
  • Increase the range of movement in joints
  • Recover from minor injuries
  • Reduce stress and headache
  • Improve the quality of sleep
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Promote tissue regeneration
  • Reduce scar tissue
  • Speed up the removal of toxins and metabolic waste

Sports massage is a type of massage focusing on loosening muscle fibres caused by sport-related tension and helps aid an athlete’s performance. A sports massage is ideal for people who have sport-related massages or want to improve their recovery post sporting events.
Through the use of hands-on techniques to your muscles, massage aims to increase flexibility and decrease pain. Sports massage will often utilise various modalities such as remedial massage, trigger point therapy, cross fibre techniques and deep tissue work.

Sports massages have a range of benefits such as reaching peak performance, helping the muscles to recover correctly and preparing the body for future exercise.

Massage also helps recovery from soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains. Everybody experiences some form of stress through work, family, the environment and society. Mental tensions, frustrations and insecurity cause the most damage. Hormones released by stress shrink the vessels, inhibiting circulation.

A stressed mind and body mean the heart works harder. Breathing becomes rapid and shallow, and digestion slows. Nearly every body process is degraded. Studies show that stress can cause migraines, hypertension (high blood pressure), depression, peptic ulcers, etc. In fact, researchers have estimated 80% of disease is stress-related. Soothing and relaxing massage therapy can counteract the effects of stress.

Injuries massage can treat: 

  • Headaches & migraines
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Sore shoulder and neck
  • Back pain & sciatica
  • Tennis and golfers elbow
  • Sprains, strains and tears
  • Over-use injuries
  • Shin splints

Lymphatic Massage is commonly referred to as Lymphatic Drainage. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment performed by a specially trained lymphatic massage therapist to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system. Lymphatic Massage can also aid in the prevention of swelling after injury or surgery. It is also thought to provide a major boost to your immune system.

If you have had a recent injury or surgery, suffer from poor circulation or are physically inactive, your limbs may be swollen up and your lymphatic system will need help to be effective again.

With manual Lymphatic Drainage, lymph vessels are stimulated to open up and collect the excess fluid, which is then directed to the lymph nodes where it is filtered and can re-enter the bloodstream.

In addition, lymph nodes filter waste from our body cells and assist the immune system in building an immune response; that is why manual Lymphatic Drainage is also recommended if you want to boost your immune defences and detox.

Some of the conditions that may benefit from lymphatic drainage massage include:

  • Swollen legs or arms due to fluid retention
  • Swelling of a limb: pre or post-surgery
  • Lymphoedema
  • Post-mastectomy or breast cancer treatment
  • Breast tenderness & congestion
  • Fibromyalgia & Lupus
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Hormonal & emotional imbalances
  • Cellulite fat accumulation
  • Recurrent infections such as colds, flu, tonsillitis, sinus & yeast infections

Pregnancy massage at Sports & Spinal combines relaxation massage and deep tissue. Our massage therapists adapt their techniques to address changes a woman goes through during pregnancy.

Pregnancy massage helps you by targeting specific areas of the body that needs to be relaxed or allow more movement. As your body changes during this time, it is important to prepare the body and aid the changes instead of trying to fight them. Pregnancy is a joyful time in everyone’s lives, but it is also the most taxing on the body, so it makes sense to keep your body moving and at optimal health during this time. Pregnancy or prenatal massage is a type of massage therapy designed to decrease stress/anxiety, reduce swelling in the legs and arms, improve circulation and reduce musculoskeletal aches and pains.

During pregnancy, many women experience low back, pelvic and buttock pain due to hormonal changes and the additional load placed on their body due to their growing baby.

Women who undergo massage therapy during pregnancy consistently report decreased anxiety, stress, leg pain, lower back pain and improved sleep. Pregnancy massage has even proved to be effective during labour in managing pain and improving the emotional experience that labour can bring on.

The benefits include:

  • Preparation of muscles required in childbirth.
  • Neck and back pain relief is caused by muscle imbalance and imperfect posture.
  • Assist in maintaining proper posture.
  • Emotional support through nurturing touch.
  • Relaxation and decreased insomnia.
  • Lower levels of cramping, particularly in the calf muscles.
  • Reduced sciatic pain.

WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

I had a remedial massage by Kim whilst holidaying at Broadbeach. I was treated professionally from the time of booking to the time of walking out the door after the best massage I have ever had. Kim also gave me tips on how to manage my issues. If I lived on the Gold Coast -I would without a doubt be one of her loyal clients.Unfortunately I don't -but I would definitely highly recommend Kim and this practice.Thank you again for looking after me.Kind regardsMargaret D
I’ve had a really great experience at Raw Therapies. I saw Scott and feel he genuinely cares about my lower back issues. He’s now on a mission to help me overcome my pain issues and really is going above and beyond to assist me. My experience at Raw Therapies has been much more helpful than other physios or chiropractors I've seen in the past and would strongly recommend to anyone.
I had an initial appointment with physio Marina for sciatic pain, she was wonderful, figured out the cause of my pain, created a management plan for me, gave me treatment and answered all of my questions. Very efficient but I didn’t feel rushed, and she was very personable and easy to talk to. I also found the front desk staff friendly and booking process easy. Would highly recommend!
Thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancy massage with Adrian this week. Professional and knowledgeable. Best pregnancy massage I’ve had yet. The whole team were friendly from the moment I walked in the door! Thank You.
I have been seeing Adrian for my massage for the last 2 years. He is simply incredible. Not only does he work so well with understanding my body and its needs. He also has the most gentle healing energy that leaves me feeling like I’m floating through air afterwards. I’m so grateful to have found Adrian and would recommend him as a 10/10
This was my first visit here. I saw Alex, I highly recommend him as he has a lovely demeanor and makes you feel comfortable immediately.He educated me and the treatment he provided has had results only hours after.I will be back.Kim Ford
I have been visiting this clinic for a few years now and have never been disappointed, always accomodating and happy to help. The care and service by Nick and Marina is exceptional and I always leave feeling brand new!
I have been brilliantly treated for over 2 years by Adrian the best ever Masseur.Simply The Best, Better Than All The Rest,Better Than Anyone, Better Than Anyone my Body has ever met.Seriously as a mature age person, with some difficult medical & physical issues, having had Massages once a week even, for many years, Ado is so Caring, Experienced, Knowledgeable, In Tune with my Body & Mind's, needs & wants, & devotes himself to ensuring one gets the BEST Treatment ever, everytime. Thanks Adrian, you keep me going. B
Hands down the best therapist on the Gold Coast. I’ve been going to Adrian every week for 3 years. He understands the body in a way that will ruin you for other therapists.
Thanks to Alex I felt positive about everything he recommended me to do to improve my lower back.The results where due to my age better than I expected!.I’d recommend Alex to anyone who have lower back problems, because mine is on the mend.
This place is fantastic. Have only had 2 sessions with Anna but noticed such a big improvement after just the first. So glad I can across this place, I won’t got anywhere else for remedial massage.
Excellent massage with Adrian today. It was up there with the best ive ever had.
Nick and his team are fantastic.More than just effective treatment, they also guide you through your injury journey to recovery and maintenance.Definitely recommend 100%
The RAW team are hands down one of the most Impressive Physiologists on the GoldCoast & couldn't be more appreciative of the service that they provide,Highly Recommended 10/10
