Remedial & Therapeutic Massage
At Wollongong Remedial and Oncology Massage we offer a wide range of professional therapeutic and remedial massage by trained and highly skilled therapists. These services are covered by Health Funds with the appropriate cover.
Massage has a healing power which works on three levels: physical, psychological and emotional. It improves blood circulation, eases tight muscles and tendons and relieves aches and pains. By working on the lymphatic system, therapeutic massage facilitates the elimination of waste from the body. We like to tailor your massage to your specific needs.
Remedial: This reparative therapy uses massage and other specialised soft tissue techniques to achieve results from simple relaxation through to overall health and well-being. Therapists use muscle energy techniques, exercise therapy, myofascial therapy and cupping designed to treat injuries and back pain.
Aromatherapy: This deeply therapeutic massage uses essential oils as medicines. Essential oils are highly concentrated plant essences - droplets of healing liquid which have the power to relax, stimulate and rejuvenate by aiding in balancing the nerve supply; and improving blood and lymphatic circulation.
It is particularly useful for relieving pain; righting imbalanced emotional and physical states; as well as being a wonderful way of indulging in the sensation of total relaxation.
Pregnancy: Your experienced female massage therapist will use safe, gentle techniques aimed at relaxing and unwinding tightness and tension in those muscles with comforting background music. We will give you a great prenatal massage throughout all stages of your pregnancy.
Lower leg & Foot Massage:This delightful foot massage includes a relaxing warm foot soak and luxurious massage. Treatment promotes positive mood alterations. Stress symptoms such as insomnia, hypertension, muscle tension, anxiety may be alleviated. Overall feelings of well-being are increased.
Cellulite treatments: Cellulite appears when fat cells build up between fibrous tissue that connects your skin to your underlying muscles. The fat pushes your skin outward while fibrous bands pull areas of your skin inward, causing the uneven surface. Our treatment designed exclusively by Louise.

To help eliminate metabolic waste, tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The treatment time is one and a half hours and not covered by health funds. Price $170.
