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

Would highly recommend these guys, very friendly and professional.
Professional, understanding, caring and precise on assisting me to recover after breaking my arm and wrist. Well done team. :)
They are sensational. Great customer service helpful where they can be and Karis is a great physio.
The physio was very good . They are not really hands on . She did give me a massage but $140.00 normal fee is a bit expensive for a talk shown exercise and a massage.
I'm currently seeing a lady here & she has been phenomenal and very knowledgeable of my injury. She shows compassion and empathy but also very honest. The reception staff are lovely and easy to deal with.
Friendly clinic who remember your name and the practitioners really care
All my injuries were dealt with totally experienced physiotherapy (Liam) and controlled my pain.
Thank you Jacob for the explanation and teach me the treatmentHighly recommend
Mark and team are the best physio's in the Bay!
Very experienced and explains why and what they are going to do to you
I have very complex physical medical conditions and saw Alanah today. She was positive, supportive, listened extremely well and responded perfectly to the severe pain I was in. Her massage skills and interest in what worked best for me were second to none. Well worth the time and money and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you Alanah....I haven't needed to take the strong pain relief this evening I have had to take usually :)

March marks ‘March Into Yellow’ which a campaign aimed at raising awareness about endometriosis and it’s prevalence in Australian women 💛

Endometriosis affects women differently, but it is commonly known to cause severe, life-impacting pain during periods, sexual intercourse, bowel movements and/or urination, chronic pelvic pain, abdominal bloating, nausea, fatigue, and sometimes depression, anxiety, and infertility. 

Roughly, 1 in 9 Australian females develop endometriosis. 

Early diagnosis and treatment to help manage endo symptoms is best practice. The women’s health team at Sports & Spinal can help to manage common endo symptoms.

✨GUT HEALTH MONTH ✨

One of the ways we can support a healthy gut is to increase our variety of plant-based foods high in fibre and antioxidants. Fibre is essential for gut health as it promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria which has been shown to support brain health, mood, nutrient absorption and digestion, reducing inflammation and also reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases.

In this reel our Dietician Georgia shares her top 5 gut-friendly snack options for when you’re on the go.

VEGIE STICKS + HUMMUS
Aim for a variety of coloured fruit and veg! Boost fibre by adding a side of carrots or baby cucumber to your usual snacks – this small change can reduce your risk of chronic disease development by 30%!

NUTS
Gut bacteria feed on the prebiotic fibre found in nuts resulting in the production of short chain fatty acid Butyrate- higher levels of Butyrate is associated with improved mood, gut motility and better appetite control.

TUNA & BARLEY
Barley is an essential wholegrain that can also help to reduce cholesterol levels. Mixed snacks containing tuna & wholegrains is a delicious and filling snack high in protein and fibre.

LEGUMES
1/3 cup cooked legumes (chickpeas, lentils, blackbeans) provide up to 10% daily fibre requirements! Munch on some roasted chickpeas or throw a can of lentils into your spaghetti bolognaise 

WHOLEGRAIN CRACKERS
Wholegrains provide important source of magnesium, iron, iodine, zinc, B vitamins and vitamin E. They also contain important source of insoluble fibre which can help manage constipation!
