At Arrows, I take pride in my skill in providing remedial treatment to a broad range of clients. Whether you’re a professional athlete suffering a sporting injury, a chef with a repetitive strain, or simply need a massage to relive muscular aches and pains, I can provide the appropriate treatment for your needs.
You may wish to include Myofascial Cupping in your treatment. The cups are used in conjunction with massage to help lift and separate soft tissue. Myofascial Cupping across tissues increases nutrient rich blood to the area. It also brings reduction of the sympathetic nervous system due to the negative pressure. It can help the body in maintaining Range of Motion, eliminating Myofascial Trigger Points and reducing restrictive and sometimes painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement originating from sports and the workplace.
Arrows is not just a "lie you down and rub you down" massage business. If it is your first treatment with me, I will carry out a full consultation prior to the massage to identify your main areas of concern and work out the best treatment plan for you. I like to ensure you have a clear understanding of what I am doing and why. All follow up treatments also begin with a brief consultation to go over how you and your body are feeling on that particular day or have been feeling since your last treatment.
At Arrows, I do not offer private health funds for my remedial massage services. A detailed explanation is on our FAQ page.
Lie back and totally relax while your whole body is relieved of built up stress. An Arrows relaxation massage treatment involves using stimulating, strong therapeutic movements to ease the nervous system while stimulating blood and lymph circulation to create balance and encourage renewal.
An Arrows relaxation massage treatment has a special focus on your sensory system which will leave you feeling weightless and blissful. I offer clients the opportunity to use a set of Bluetooth headphones, allowing you to listen to the music in your own isolated sensory experience. It is the ideal massage to combat stress, revitalise and restore the body back to balance. A relaxation massage is ideal to promote wellbeing, improve sleep, treat anxiety and tension, and enhance a range of systemic body functions such as circulation.
This massage is designed to soothe and relieve tension for mothers to be. A safe, nurturing massage in which the mother can choose to lie on her tunny on on my customised pregnancy pillows or select to lie on her side during the massage.
Pregnancy massage differs from general massage because there can be some risks if particular pressure points are stimulated. These are located within your wrists and ankles and massaging them can stimulate the uterus to start contracting.
If it is your first pregnancy treatment with us, I will carry out a full consultation prior to the massage to identify how your pregnancy is progressing, any areas of concern and work out the best treatment plan for you. It is important to have this consultation prior to the massage treatment so the therapist can ensure the safety and comfort of the mother and baby.
More details about Pregnancy Massage can be read on the FAQ page.
THERMAL CONTRASTING STONE MASSAGE (TCSM)
At Arrows we like alternating hot and cold stones -- a technique known as thermal contrasting. This can also help stimulate organ reflexes and blood vessels, increase blood flow to areas with inadequate circulation, help remove impurities and give skin a firmer texture.
The use of cold stones in massage involves the use of cold stones to relieve overworked, chronically tense or inflamed tissue. The cold stones have some therapeutic effects on a range of conditions ranging from easing arthritis pain and muscle injuries (post sport), to alleviating sinus congestion. Additionally, cold stone therapy can reduce swelling, relax muscle spasms, decrease menstrual pain and restore energy levels.
An Arrows TCSM is perfect to alleviate chronic and acute muscle pain, relieve acute injury (over 48 hours), speed up the recovery process, decrease discomfort from ailments such as: plantar fasciitis, tendonitis and arthritis, ease repetitive stress injury.
You can also request your therapist perform a Hot Stone Massage only, however we do encourage you try our TCSM, you wont be disappointed!
BLACKROLL Fascial Release TRAINING
Justine is also a BLACKROLL® Certified Trainer specialising in fascial release training and exercise programs.
BLACKROLL® is not just about massaging muscles. It enhances the health of our fascia by rolling the fascia (SMR) and with movement exercises to strengthen and balance muscles and joints (Functional Training). Both these activities encourage a healthier fascia that is smoother, more flexible, stronger, bouncier, hydrated and well supplied with essential nutrients.
BLACKROLL® fascia training allows you to work on both mobility & strength. The two main components are:
- Self-Myofascial Release (SMR): for increased mobility, flexibility, muscle recovery, injury prevention and treatment
- Functional Training: for improved core, pelvic and shoulder girdle strength, coordination and balance
I can offer you a 1:1 fascial release training class, small private group classes or something for your sporting team or even your workplace. Contact me for more information regarding this training.
