Experience the BestRemedial Massage

Remedial Massage treats muscles that are tense and tight. The process of remedial massage locates and releases aggravated areas of the body, speeding up the body’s healing processes.

Our Remedial Massage Gold Coast Services

At Atkins Health, we provide 90, 60, 45 and 30 minute massage sessions at our remedial massage Gold Coast clinic located at Runaway Bay. Our remedial massage therapists are highly acclaimed and sought after, being very experienced in deep tissue massage and sports massage, and it is essential to please book early so that you don’t miss out, the calendar gets busy.

We also provide exercise physiology and physiotherapy services, plus reformer Pilates classes, allowing for a thoroughly comprehensive treatment plan at a single location.

What Can I Expect from Remedial Massage Therapy?

Depending on the problem or your preferences, this type of massage can be anything from a more relaxing gentle and shallow massage, through to a strong deep tissue massage. Our remedial massage therapist will first discuss your current condition, identify whether you are experiencing existing zones of discomfort or pain points, understand your expectations and preferences on the strength of the massage, and provide a suitably applicable remedial massage therapy.


Remedial Massage Runaway Bay

From those who haven’t experienced one, we are often asked ‘is remedial massage painful’? Quite the opposite! Our remedial massage Runaway Bay based based therapists helps to improve your physical and mental performance by reducing pain and tension and preventing injuries. Painful areas on the body can trigger or radiate pain to other locations. Massage can help to trace the location and cause of the pain helping to treat the symptoms and the problem area. That doesn’t mean that you may not feel some initial soreness after a treatment, that can be perfectly normal and those expectations would be explained by your remedial massage therapist. Always ensure that you communicate with your therapist should you ever feel concerned about the strength of a massage..

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a technique that treats musculoskeletal conditions and muscle pain or stiffness, through the delivery of slow, deep strokes that are applied with sustained pressure, reaching the lower muscle layers and connective tissues. Unlike some other techniques that may focus more on relaxation, deep tissue massage therapy will stimulate blood supply which helps loosen tight muscles, making joints more mobile. Easing stress and tension, and stabilising muscles, our deep tissue massage Gold Coast therapists can help to improve problems including muscle strain, soreness, fatigue and injury, aiding rehabilitation.

Sports Massage Gold Coast

What is sports massage therapy, and how does it differ from a deep tissue massage? We posed the question to our best remedial massage Gold Coast based therapists who advised that whilst the two techniques are very similar, sports massage therapy delivers a more targeted approach to specifically loosen and realign muscle fibres that have experienced physical activity or sport-related injury or tension. Injuries may range from minor through to chronic conditions.



Sports massage therapy will often include a combination of soft and deep tissue massage, plus physiotherapy techniques. Whether you are an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, our sports massage Gold Coast clinic at Runaway Bay can assist you today with rehabilitation and recovery and performance improvement.

Can Remedial Massage Assist with Chronic Pain?

Prolonged chronic pain can increase stress levels, which can result in your body being trapped in a state of ‘fight or flight’. As a result, your body’s resources are naturally directed to those parts of the body experiencing the pain, leaving other areas of the body neglected and fatigued. Muscles tighten and become over-worked and can contribute to the pain and impact mobility. Studies show that massage treatments can significantly lower the stress hormone, cortisol, which in turn indicates that a reduction in the level of chronic pain will result.

Studies also show that massage can increase serotonin and dopamine levels in our bodies. Serotonin, amongst other roles, helps to control our mood, and dopamine plays a key role in our feelings of pleasure. Elevation of the levels of these two chemicals promote a more positive mindset, equipping us with improved coping skills when dealing with chronic pain.

When combined with other treatments such as exercise physiology in particular, massage therapy can be even more successful in producing great results in the management of pain.
