May offers three different kinds of massage. These include:

Relaxation Massage
(30 or 60 minutes)
Perfect to rejuvenate you back to cloud nine. May’s relaxation massage will work to physically ease your stresses and send your relaxation endorphins throughout your body. Do you prefer a softer massage, or a massage with a bit more force? May’s flexible style can accommodate exactly how you want to be massaged.

Therapeutic Massage
(30 or 60 minutes)
A therapeutic massage is a great way to ease your body’s aches and pains. May will closely assess and massage the areas of your body that are crying out for attention. This could be your shoulders, lower back, neck or other areas.

Hot Stone Massage
(60 or 90 minutes)
Wanting to take massage to the next level? You need to try a Hot Stone Massage. A Hot Stone Massage combines a relaxation massage with the deep heat penetrating powers of hot basalt stones. These hot stones are placed directly onto your body’s key areas to super charge your massage affect.

What can I expect in the consultation?

Massage is a hands on practice which involves a confidential one on one consultation with your massage therapist. A brief medical history is taken in the first consultation, which will cover relevant matters such as activities, work environment, diet and past injuries. This is taken to ensure your therapist knows how to best help you with your specific presentation.

A physical assessment is then conducted to best determine the most effective treatment for your condition.

This assessment may include:
Physical examination
Range of motion testing
Postural assessment
Orthopaedic assessment
Neurological testing
Active palpation
Passive palpation

A treatment plan will then be formulated and explained to you in detail. This plan will include the hands on treatment, as well as some corrective exercises and stretches to be undertaken at home, as well as advice on management that can be undertaken by yourself between your consultations to best assist the improvement of the injury.

What treatment techniques are used?

Techniques used will vary on your presented complaint, but may include:
Manual soft tissue techniques – such as myofascial release and deep tissue massage.
Trigger Point Therapy- to release specific points of tension within the affected musculature
Muscle stretching – to release areas of tension in a gentle but effective manner
Postural corrective exercises – strengthening or stretching exercises to be undertaken at home/work
Hot and cold therapy – the application of heat or cold onto the affected area to be done at home

I always feel a bit sore after a massage. Is this normal?

If you experience pain, headache or bruising after your treatment this can be a normal post-treatment outcome. Always check with your therapist if you are not sure of types of outcomes you could receive from the specific therapeutic massage you are to receive. If you are uncomfortable or unsure at any stage of the massage, be sure to tell your therapist.

What’s the difference between remedial massage and osteopathy?

Both treatment types have their place when it comes to your health. Remedial massage is good for when you have tired and achy muscles after exercise or sedentary periods (like at work). They can also help with general relaxation or sporting or workplace injuries to decrease muscle spasm and thereby decreasing pain. Click here for further information on how massage can help you.

An osteopath will look not only at your muscles, but at the whole structure of the body to make sure that everything is aligned. They can help with more specific pain conditions where massage just isn’t enough. Osteopaths will often work together with your massage therapists to ensure the best results for you.
