Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Massage holistically treats the whole body.
Our Terrigal Massage Therapists use several specialized techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin using a lubricating medium, usually oil, which ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder and mobilization of the joint are deeply penetrated. Passive stretching moves are also used.
Key benefits of Massage include:
- Stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed
- Calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort
- Toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility
An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.
Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with Remedial Massage include:
- Frozen Shoulder
- Muscular Cramps

Session lengths vary depending on the whether the practitioner will just address a specific area or give a whole body massage. As oil is used, it is necessary for the patient to be unclothed for the treatment having towels covering the areas of the body not being massaged at all times.
