As a qualified Remedial Massage Therapist (Dip of Remedial Massage; Member of Massage & Myotherapy Australia), I can help to make your life more liveable, by relieving some of the aches, pains, stresses and strains that everyday life can cause.
What is a Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is used to aid recovery from the injuries caused by the strains of everyday life, including postural problems and repetitive stress injuries. If you have particular muscle tension or chronic pain a remedial massage may be for you. While remedial massage encompasses some techniques from relaxation massage, it also incorporates advanced joint mobilisation and stretching techniques to provide deep and lasting relief.
- Increase blood flow resulting in nutrition delivery to healing tissue
- Reduced scar tissue and risk of injury recurrence
- Relief of muscle tension around joints, alleviating aches
- Increased mobility and flexibility
- Reduced neck, back and shoulder pain
- Maintained and improved muscle condition
- Improved relaxation and general wellbeing
- Improved posture
- Improved lymphatic flow
- Improved immune system functioning
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved sleep
- Improved parasympathetic nervous system
Getting the best out of your massage:
- Drink plenty of water both before and after your massage to ensure your body is properly hydrated.
- Relax your muscles with a hot shower before your massage.
- Eating just before a massage can lead to an uncomfortable bloated feeling. Save lunch for afterwards.
- Let me know of any injuries or allergies you may have prior to your appointment.
- Let me know when something hurts or doesn’t feel right during the massage.
- Making massage part of your regular routine can lower your risk of muscular injury, while helping to keep you mentally and physically relaxed.
- If you’re going to exercise, do it beforehand, not afterwards. Working out afterwards can come with an increased risk of muscular stress, strain and injury, so take it easy for 24 hours.
- Skip that coffee and grab a green tea. Coffee is a diuretic, and massage can be dehydrating. Take care of your body and choose something calming and rehydrating afterwards. Coffee can also tense up muscles that you’ve just relaxed.

“I absolutely love attending Chunmei’s Tai Chi classes. Chunmei is an excellent instructor who combines fun and humour with her passion to teach and improve her students’ lives. Chunmei has also given me the most amazing massages at her clinic. I have suffered with a frozen shoulder since a fall I had in May of this year, and Chunmei’s healing hands are helping me tremendously with my recovery. I highly recommend getting a massage from Chunmei for either a specific injury, stress reduction or just to relax and treat yourself!! She is also accredited with all healthcare funds.” Michelle H
