Remedial Massage

Remedial massage therapy at Your Health Domain Sydney CBD aims at treating damaged or impaired muscles and tendons that may be knotted, tense or immobile. Remedial Massage works through to the 3rd and 4th layers of the muscle, improving the body's circulation, easing muscle pain and tension, assisting the body's immune system and promoting a feeling of well being.

It will give your body more energy and reduces the chance of re-injury and illness. Your therapist will use several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms. Passive stretching moves are also used.

Sports Massage

Sports massage therapy at Your Health Domain Sydney CBD  helps with recovery from sports injuries by releasing tight muscles and scar tissue. It will increase range of movement in the body's joints, promoting flexibility and strength. It also stimulates the production of natural joint lubrication.

Sports massage therapy will be tailored according to where you are at in your training cycle – pre-event, mid season, off-season. The aim is to maximize your recovery process and therefore you enhance your performance. Discuss your training program and event status with your treating therapist.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue massage at Your Health Domain Sydney CBD works through to the deeper sections of muscle tissue in order to breakdown scar tissue and thickened muscle fibres and release toxins held deeply in tension points. It helps to increase joint range of movement and promotes flexibility and strength. It also stimulates the production of natural join lubrication which will free you up for movement.

Deep Tissue massage is suitable for many physical problems including chronic pain and sport-related muscle soreness. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on specific areas. You may experience some treatment soreness during or after the session lasting for a day or two.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage at Your Health Domain Sydney CBD eases muscular tension and promotes a feeling of well-being. Using a variety of hands-on techniques, the main purpose is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.

Other benefits include shortening recovery time after exercise or sport, stretching of muscles, ligaments and tendons, skin stimulation and soothing of the nervous system. Most importantly, relaxation massage reduces stress - it focuses on giving the client time to recover from the pressure of daily life.

Hot Stone Massage

Add the benefits of hot stones to your remedial or deep tissue massage. The use of heat will assist with increasing the extensibility of your tight muscles and assist in soft tissue flexibility. The heat will increase your circulation and promote blood flow to targeted areas.

 

Trigger Point Massage

Trigger points are areas of hyperirritability in the muscles usually associated with a superficial nerve ending. Trigger points can be acute sources of pain or may occur post exercise (latent pain). They may go unnoticed by the client until pressure is applied by the practitioner. Trigger points are small contraction knots in the muscles that may cause muscle spasm, restricted movement and referred pain.

Trigger point releases involve applying localised firm pressure over specific points within the muscle. The points may often be located in places different to where the client actually feels the pain as there is frequently a referral pattern of pain associated with trigger points. There is usually instant relief from having a trigger point released however a dull bruised sensation may last for a day or two.
