Our remedial massage therapy services delivered here in Adelaide provide stress relief and help you alleviate chronic muscular aches and joint problems that are caused by overuse. Each highly skilled remedial massage therapist on our team uses specialised techniques. These are designed to break up adhesions and scar tissue that cause pain and stiffness in muscles and tendons; relieve tension headaches and neck pain; relieve joint pressure caused by osteoarthritis and mental tension; and assist in the rehabilitation of sprained joints and strained muscles.
Myofascial release is a therapeutic technique that focuses on the fascial system of the body. Fascia is a connective tissue that covers and supports every muscle group, lines body cavities, and wraps the body just under the skin. Tight fascia can lead to restricted movement, poor posture, and pain. Our myofascial release Adelaide services work to free up tight fascia and reduce tension in the body, allowing for greater freedom of movement and improved overall function. By targeting the fascial wrappings of the body, myofascial release can help to alleviate discomfort and promote greater physical well-being.
This gentle, flowing massage technique is particularly effective for people suffering from work-related or personal stress. Our Swedish massage services in Adelaide can relax and tone your sore tired muscles; assist the flow of blood and oxygen within your body; encourage lymphatic flow (the body’s natural defence and detoxifying system), and leave you feeling calm and energised.
Aromatherapy massage is a holistic therapy that combines the therapeutic properties of essential oils with the benefits of massage. The essential oils we use are chosen for their specific properties and applied to the skin through gentle massage techniques to calm the nervous system, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation. They stimulate the lymphatic system and improve blood circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients efficiently to the body’s tissues and promoting increased overall health and wellness.
Our sports massage services in Adelaide are made specifically for anyone involved in weekend recreational sporting activities, right through to professional athletes. These specialised massages can help athletes prevent sports-related injuries from occurring by warming up and stimulating the soft tissues (Pre-Event Massage). They’re designed to:
- Tone muscles
- Improve blood and lymphatic flow that helps respiratory performance
- Improve flexibility
- Aid in stress reduction
- Help prevent muscular adhesions
- Clear lactic acid build-up, which improves recovery time
- Assist in the rehabilitation of sporting injuries such as sprains, strains and muscle weakness
- Relieve painful muscle spasms
- Improve performance and endurance
Fertility Massage draws from many traditional indigenous cultures and techniques, including abdominal-sacral massage, pulsing, rebozo, reiki and guided visualisations. Combined with a bit of intuition, this blended therapy results in a unique nurturing massage that assists in increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, helping to properly position the womb, remove blockages and open up the pelvic and hip region, and in this way, becomes the ideal therapy for those on their fertility journey.
Pregnancy Massage Therapies
Pregnancy is a time of excitement and joy, but it can also be a stressful time for a mother-to-be, and massage is a great way to help women through this time of physical, hormonal and psychological change.
Massage throughout a woman’s pregnancy can prevent or minimise the symptoms of pregnancy, and the discomforts experienced during the more advanced stages may also be eased. Massage is able to achieve this by helping to resolve or manage areas of weakness that may be secondary to old injuries or past surgeries and posture-related dysfunction. For example, Pregnancy Massage has proven to be beneficial in reducing the severity of pregnancy-related back pain and the swelling consequent to fluid retention, all of which are commonly experienced by women whose bodies progress through this time of dramatic change.
At Lifeforce, we use specially shaped pregnancy support cushioning that enables the pregnant woman to be positioned comfortably in the prone position (ie lying on her belly) so that she can truly relax and enjoy her massage.
