About Therapeutic Massage

Massage Therapy is an excellent lifestyle regimen for healing and well-being and can be adapted to benefit most people at any stage in life from: infants to the elderly, for those who are pregnant/post-partum, pre/post-surgery, ill or feeling the need to be pro-active in their pursuit of health and wellness.

Registered Massage Therapists incorporate a variety of techniques to help reduce and manage pain and muscle tension associated with chronic stress, work, injury, repetitive movements and the activities of daily living. Treatments can vary from a relaxation focus, to specific deep tissue therapy, myofascial release or trigger point therapy or a combination of techniques as determined by individual circumstances.

At Perth Massage Therapy our RMT’s will tailor treatments to meet the needs of each individual client. Your therapist will spend some time with you reviewing your confidential health history form and address any questions or concerns you may have. Ongoing communication is a valued and essential component of successful massage treatment. Prior to your first treatment your therapist will explain and demonstrate how to position yourself on the table. Your comfort and modesty is respected by using pillows, sheets and blankets as required. Your therapist will always leave the room to give you privacy for changing and for getting on and off the table. Massage therapy is most beneficial in acute conditions when used over a series of treatments and then followed up with maintenance or preventive treatments. Our RMT’s can help you establish a personal program to fit your physical needs and lifestyle. Though we strongly encourage that your initial appointment is an hour in order to accommodate assessment and treatment, subsequent treatment duration and frequency will vary with personal circumstances.
