Remedial Massage

Jacqueline is fully qualified in Remedial Massage and has provider numbers with most private health insurance companies.

Remedial massage techniques are recognised as having a therapeutic and healing effect on the nervous, muscular and circular system of the body.
It involves sports, deep tissue, cross fibre and lymphatic massage methods.
If you have particular muscle tension or chronic pain a remedial massage may be for you. Jacqueline will assess where you need treatment and what may be causing your pain. She will perform some tests to see exactly which muscles are giving you trouble and will tailor a treatment plan to suit. The treatment itself may involve deep tissue work which you might feel as intense, but only as much as you can bear and only for short periods of time, and the results are definitely worth it!

  • sciatica,
  • carpal tunnel,
  • stiff necks,
  • headaches,
  • sports injuries and many more

can be eased with a remedial treatment.

A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who are working hard and have troubles shutting down their minds or feel like they deserve a treat.

The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles and the great thing is: you can choose the pressure. It is a pain free way to relax both your body muscles and your mind.
