MASSAGE Therapy and Rehabilitation Clinic


Massage by Alternative Myotherapy in Brunswick

The Reliever and Relaxation Enhancer

Being perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions, massage is known for its therapeutic properties and is used to treat a variety of ailments. Manual techniques are applied during various massages to break compensatory pain postures and patterns and aid various purposes. For example, during sports massage, a blend of techniques are used to help overworked muscles to recover quickly and improve performance. Meanwhile, during a remedial massage, various techniques are used to encourage restoration of injured soft tissue, such as ligaments, tendons and muscles.

Modern studies have shown that depending on the form of massage provided, its physical benefits may include improved circulation, reduced muscle tension, reduction of stress hormones, stimulation of the lymphatic system, increased flexibility and joint mobility, heightened mental alertness, speedier healing of soft tissue injuries, improved skin tone, and reduced depression and anxiety.

Located in Brunswick, Alternative Myotherapy offers various massage therapies to clients from Coburg, Northcote, Thornbury and beyond. These primarily include sports massage, remedial massage and deep tissue massage.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage provided by Alternative Myotherapy in Melbourne is a highly effective treatment for clients who are active sportspersons or the ones who visit gym and running clubs regularly. It relieves the stress, pain and tension that builds up in the body during a physical activity by increasing blood circulation and lymph flow, and reducing muscle tension. It is used before and after athletic performance to reduce muscle tension, swelling, and fatigue and to promote flexibility and prevent injuries, thus promoting peak performance.

In this kind of massage, we use vigorous rubbing techniques to warm up muscle tissue. Long, deep strokes – through large muscle groups such as the quads and gluteal – can help remove lactic acid and toxins from the body.

Remedial massage

We also specialize in offering remedial massage in Melbourne which incorporates several specialized massage techniques to locate and help ease muscle stiffness and tension in the body. It is the best treatment for stretching out tightened muscles, stimulating the adhesions (little knots) in muscles, and increasing health of cells and body’s systems. You can take remedial Massage as a cure for the entire body or for an explicit problem (e.g. overuse, sprains, muscular conditions, etc.) or injury.

  • Achilles Injuries
