Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage can help relieve muscle aches and pains. Massage can also help relieve stress, headaches, improves circulation, improves posture and helps with flexibility. Massage can also help if playing sport and the stress that these muscles can come under. If you have strains, sprains we can help you with the different types of treatments we have available.

What To Expect at Newcastle Muscle Therapy

 

When you arrive you will be asked to fill out a client form. This is a form that needs to be filled out for legal reasons. We need the information as it helps us work out a treatment plan for you. We also need to keep it for record keeping with the Health Funds as well, incase we get audited. Once you are in the treatment room the therapist will ask you about the information that you have provided so they can structure your massage appropriately.

During the massage you will be draped with towels and only the part that is being treated will be uncovered.

If at any time you feel discomfort during the massage please let the therapist know straight away. We also advise that you let us know if the pressure is not firm enough or too soft. We work within your pain threshold. So please let us know.

 

Massage Treatments

Remedial Massage

Here at Newcastle Muscle Therapy our most popular treatment is Remedial Massage. This type of treatment has many techniques.

During the treatment the Therapist may use Trigger Point, firm deep pressure and stretching. It is normal to feel a bit tender and sore during the massage but not to the point that it is too firm and you can’t sustain the pressure.

We recommend that you drink plenty of water after your treatment to keep you hydrated.

Pregnancy Massage

Massage is a wonderful way to relax while you are pregnant. It can help increase your energy and help relieve any stress or discomfort that may go along with being pregnant. Corrine has also been immunized against Whooping cough as of Jan 2018.

The benefits of having a massage while being pregnant

  • It helps relieve muscle aches and pains and cramping
  • Helps reduce stress that may come along with being pregnant
  • Helps to reduce stress on weight bearing joints such as hips

Massage can also be useful when in labour, and also helps after the birth as well. Postpartum massage can help the new mother with relief of sore, tired muscles and help her to relax as well.

 

Sports Massage

A good sports massage therapist should be able to identify tightness, trigger points and scar tissue.

At Newcastle Muscle Therapy we treat a lot of sporting people ranging from soccer, rugby league, tennis and runners.

Corrine had looked after a NBN State League Soccer Club (South Cardiff) where the player come in for massage treatments as well as sauna treatments, which helps with any injuries they may be suffering from.

Sports massage can be used in the treatment for specific injuries such as hamstring strains, calf strains, plantar fascities, shin splints, calf tightness as well as back strains.

 Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

We can treat children and individuals who have Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Corrine has been working with children with autism for a while now. She loves watching how the children change and relax during their treatment.
