Maintenance Massage

Body Maintenance Massage

A Body Maintenace Massage is a full body treatment that will provide relief to general aches and pains.  This is the best type of massage for someone who trains regularly and is looking to maintain their sot tissue health or provide relief to overworked muscles.  

When would you book a Maintenance Massage?

These massages are ideal if you have general aches and pains, with no specific pathology or chronic symptom, such as sharp or dull pain in a specific area of your body.  If you have a remedial treatment plan Maintenance Massages can be fantastic to either augment your treatments or to assist with managing the overall cost of your plan. 

They are the perfect addition to your wellbeing maintenance plan to maintain the health of your;

  • soft tissues 

  • circulatory system

  • immune function

Maintenance Massage as part of a Treatment Plan 

If you are seeing one of our Remedial Therapists they may include maintenance massages as part of your treatment plan or as a maintenance strategy for your overall wellbeing. If that is the case you can continue with your regular therapist or move between our therapists.

If you are working with more than one Muscle Medicine therapist you can be assured that your history and treatment notes will be communicated between the therapists to ensure a continuation of care. 

 

How often should I have a maintenance massage?

That depends on you and your lifestyle. Our recommendations are;

High-Performance Lifestyle  | Weekly

Active/High Function Lifestyle | 3 - 4 weekly

Life Care | 5 - 8 weekly

Note - these recommendations are if you are not engaged in a Muscle Medicine treatment plan.  If you have a treatment plan, speak with your therapist about including maintenance massages. 

How does this differ from other muscle medicine massages?

A Maintenance Massage is a full body massage with a focus on any presenting or ongoing discomfort you may be feeling. Whereas our Remedial Massage Treatments will not provide a full body massage as they are designed to only focus on your specific discomforts and goals.  During your Maintenance Massage, you will benefit from the skills and knowledge of a remedially trained massage therapist who is on the Muscle Medicine Method Mentoring Program. 

Maintenance Massages are only $100 for 60 mins.

Health Fund Rebates are not available on Maintenance Massages
