Remedial Massage

massage remedial

Remedial massage is a deep tissue massage, focused on problem areas that are affecting your day to day life and comfort, like:

  • Neck pain

  • Headaches

  • Back pain

  • Plantar fasciitis 

  • Injury 

The Process

You will receive a full-body assessment which will allow your massage therapist to see what the underlying problem is to your pain and discomfort.  

The amazing thing about receiving a proper assessment before your massage is that your therapist can often see that the underlying problem is a different site to where you may be describing your pain.

Your therapist can also determine if the problem is muscle, joint or nerve related, which allows them to alter the direction of treatment so that you receive the best results.

After a powerful remedial massage to help loosen the fascia and relieve tension that may be causing you pain or restricting your movement, your massage therapist will give you quick and easy stretches or exercises to implement after your appointment, so that you can reduce the likelihood of the problem progressing or returning.

Cupping available to top off your treatment.

Relaxation

The beautiful Swedish relaxation technique brings calm and restoration to a busy mind and tense body.

Although it’s not as deep as remedial massage, Swedish relaxation technique is still incredibly therapeutic and suited to those that like a gentle touch and know the power of slowing down and calming the body.

Swedish relaxation can offer you relief from:

  • Stress

  • Muscle tension

  • Headaches

  • Insomnia

  • Cramps

  • Fibromyalgia

We know what works, which is why we ensure that our relaxation massages address tension through your whole body, not just one problem area.

Aromatherapy and hot stones available to top off your treatment.

Hot Stone

Relax and release muscular tension quickly with the power of hot stone therapy.  

Hot stone therapy can improve the symptoms of:

  • Muscle tension and pain

  • Headaches

  • Insomnia

  • Cramps

  • Back pain

  • Poor circulation

  • Stress & anxiety

  • Fibromyalgia

We have a highly trained hot stone therapist here at Verve, who will blow you away with how calming and restorative this gentle technique is.

Many massages use hot stones only on the back or problem area to help improve circulation and release tension, using about 4-6 stones in total to achieve this.

Here at Verve, we are all about going above and beyond, which is why our hot stone massages incorporate a whopping 40 hot stones in all of our hot stone treatments.

The Process

You will receive a full-body assessment from your massage therapist to reveal areas that may need more attention.

Hot stones are then placed all over the body from foot to head to induce relaxation through light pressure and warmth.

Your massage therapist will then use these beautiful warm stones to massage every inch of your body, from your calves all the way up to your neck.

Enjoy the luxury of hot stones placed on your chin and between your toes as you feel tension slip away and heat embrace your whole body.

Brilliant for those that are quite tense and enjoy hot showers!  

I love my hot stone massages but I’ve never had anything like this before!  The hot stones on my face were the cherry on top to a delicious massage.  Thank you so much.

Aromatherapy available to top off your treatment.

Ice and fire stone therapy available on request.  This incorporates hot stone therapy, mixed with ice stone therapy.  Ice stones are very cold stones which are used in alternation with hot stones to help contract the muscles and blood flow to improve circulation and release of muscles.  Your massage therapist will advise if this is helpful for you or if heat alone will be best.  

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
After a visit at Verve, I realised that the actual problem wasn’t my neck at all!  It was a big knot between my shoulder blades because of my posture. 

I was blown away at how much different I felt and how much relief I got from a massage that was actually focused on the problem, not just my neck.
