Remedial massage reduces pain and tension, and assists with the body’s natural healing process.
At East West Natural Medicine Group, we view remedial massage and evidence-based natural medicine as two healing processes that work together for optimal health results and general well-being. We usually find out clients have other issues with their health such as headaches and tension, caused by their medical conditions like stress and anxiety.
Remedial massage therapy works to combat this by focusing on the cause of the pain and discomfort through the use of various techniques such as trigger point therapy and deep tissue massage. This dramatically reduces pain, tension and discomfort.
Our Remedial Massage Therapists specialise in
- Physical pain: Muscle tension and stiffness; back, neck, shoulder, elbow, hip and knee pain.
- Nervous system conditions: Headaches, migraines, and other stress related conditions.
- Syndromes: Myofascial pain syndrome, rotator cuff syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, and plantar fasciitis.
- Injuries: Muscle sprains and strains, sports injuries, and repetitive stress injuries.

- Deep tissue and sports massage
- Swedish massage
- Trigger point therapy

Our treatment sessions
30 minute massage treatment
This is usually recommended for the maintenance treatment of a specific body area such as the back, neck, and legs.
60 minute massage treatment
This is recommended for a full body Swedish massage, Sports massage, or remedial massage. The first 5-10 minutes of the treatment is spent assessing your posture, range of motion (for the area of complaint), and if necessary, orthopaedic tests.

We recommend this treatment for a full body relaxation or Swedish massage treatment, Sports massage, or remedial massage. The first 5-10 minutes of the treatment is spent assessing your posture, range of motion (for the area of complaint), and if necessary, orthopaedic tests.
What to expect before your first treatment session
Remedial massage involves assessment as well as treatment. Upon booking for your first treatment session, we will ask you for your health and medication history. This helps us to familiarise ourselves with your specific health requirements. It also helps us to determine what kind of techniques and treatment will be best suited for you.
