Linda provides massage therapy at our practice and also offers home visits.

Remedial massage

Remedial massage is a deep massage that targets specific injuries, aches and pains.

Remedial massage is used to help:

  • Relieve muscle pain and tension caused by overuse, injury or stress

  • Restore flexibility to muscles and joints

  • Alleviate back pain

  • Break down scar tissue and fibrous tissue

  • Prevent recurrence of an injury

  • Boost recovery from surgery

  • Alleviate tension headaches

It can be combined with stretching exercises, M.E.T.(Muscle Energy Technique) to help release tight muscles.

Swedish massage

Swedish massage is a relaxing, gentle and flowing type of massage that can help both emotional and physical stress.

It may also:

  • Promote nerve, muscle and gland health

  • Improve circulation

  • Speed up recovery time from sport or other muscle strain

Linda holds a Diploma of Remedial Massage and Diploma of Fitness from the Australian College of Natural Therapies and is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society.

Her massage hours are Tuesdays 12.00-2.00 pm, Thursdays 1.00- 4.30 pm, Fridays 12.00- 5.30 pm and Saturdays 8.00 am- 3.00pm.
