Massage

We're thrilled to have on board massage therapist Linda Tiguemounine.

While all our physiotherapists might provide massage as part of a wider treatment, Linda offers patients a dedicated knowledge of:

  • Remedial massage
  • Swedish massage
  • Myofascial cupping
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Scar tissue release

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:

  • 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 or trigger point therapy 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 2-5pm, Thursdays 10.30am-6pm, Fridays 2-5.30pm and Saturdays 8am-12pm.
