Sports and remedial massage has a profound effect on health by maximising the body’s potential for regeneration and recovery. It can promote a feeling of well-being that is calming and soothing, and can also have a stimulating, refreshing and invigorating effect.
At Unley Physiotherapy, we believe that massage is the perfect balance to a stressful life and a fantastic complement to maximise sporting performance. It can improve circulation, relax muscles, aid digestion, stimulate the lymphatic system and speed up the elimination of waste from the body.

This treatment involves using heated rocks to warm and soften muscle tissue. The rocks are incorporated into the massage and not left sitting on the skin. The experience is very soothing and nurturing, while benefiting tense and fatigued muscles. Great for people who find deep tissue massage too painful.
Aromatherapy may be incorporated into the treatment to assist with the therapeutic and relaxing experience.
