Remedial Massage Therapy

If you have particular muscle tension or chronic pain a remedial massage may be for you.​ Remedial Massage therapy is the hands on manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints and can be used to alleviate both acute and chronic conditions. 

Relaxation Massage Therapy

If used as part of a regular program relaxation massage is very effective in reducing stress, both emotional and physical. Oxygen flow is increased in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles. The light to medium pressure helps relieve stress, reduce pain, boost mood and promote relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It’s used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Pregnancy Massage Therapy

Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.

Sports massage Therapy

Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. … Athletes have discovered that specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.

Trigger Point Therapy

A bodywork technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction both at the site of the trigger point as well as referred pain ( A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. )

Myofascial cupping Therapy

Myofascial Cupping is a technique used to promote nutrient-rich blood flow to areas,  rapidly releasing tight muscles and fascia by pulling it up and away from underlying structures using plastic or silicon suction cups , bringing fresh blood to the area and loosening tissue adhesions.  Cupping can leave suction marks which do fade over the coming days.

Magic Hands!

I recently had a massage with Danielle and this lady seriously has magic hands. I went in stiff and sore and left feeling a lot more freer in my movements without any pain.
While on the table I was totally blissed out. It was one of the best messages I’ve ever experienced and will definitely be rebooking.

Far less joint stiffness and muscle relief!
I recently visited Revival Massage Therapy hoping for some relief from tight and aching upper back and neck muscles that were impacting on my sleep, movement and general well being.  As I have aged, the years of spinal and neck manipulations had left my back stiff and my muscles tight and achy. I wasn’t having too many comfortable days or nights.  The massage has given me far less joint stiffness and muscle relief. I am regaining much more movement and mobility in these locked up areas with less discomfort.  I Sleep so much better.
I have no hesitation in recommending Revival , an excellent therapists dedicated to the integrity of the benefit of massage.

Clare is amazing!

My first time at Revival Massage and I was blown away by Clare’s massage techniques, she is absolutely AMAZING and has a beautiful energy, highly professional and made me feel comfortable right from when I walked in. Thank you Clare.

Revival Massage fixes me every time!

I am a yoga teacher and so looking after my body is paramount to my job. Regular massage is key to this but it is also much more. If I am feeling tired, sore, lacking energy or even have a particular injury having a massage at Revival has fixed me every time. I am so grateful for their knowledge, energy and genuine care. Thank you!

Great Massages

My husband and I know we always get a great massage at revival. The booking system is very easy to use . I always leave feeling so much better.

Yumie is an amazing therapist  – I had the best experience!

Very professional, Understand body conditions without much explanation. Like myofascial release for my super tight muscles.

I wish I could go every week.

Best Massage Ever!
I have a terrible tendency to slouch at my computer all day at work and lug my rather heavy two-year-old around all weekend. As a result, by the
time I find myself on the massage table I’m usually in fairly bad shape and in need of some targeted massage to ease the pain. Viv is great at identifying the problem points on my back and neck and at the end of my hour I always leave feeling relaxed and somehow looser, moving around
is suddenly pleasant again! I would recommend a massage  at Revival to anyone suffering muscle tension from being stuck at the desk all day- she is tops!

Good Strong Massage

Just had a super massage at Revival, my therapist had great manner and a good strong massage. great hire! She has a lovely way about her and super strong, she showed me some stretches as well. She’s a keeper!

Lovely space, felt instantly relaxed. Danielle provided a fantastic deep tissue massage which worked out all of the tension and knots.

Fantastic massage!

I had my massage from Viv – the owner of Revival, she put me at ease right away with her friendly personality and not only tailored the massage to my stress points (shoulders and neck from too much time at the computer) but gave me tips for ways to ease stress points myself as well. She takes a holistic approach and while providing immediate relief, takes a long term view to health and wellbeing – her therapy is not just a band aid!

I would recommend Revival unreservedly.

Lovely space, felt instantly relaxed. Danielle provided a fantastic deep tissue massage which worked out all of the tension and knots.

My last massage was exactly what I needed – the pressure (as always) was perfect and the massage targeted the right areas. The room was lovely and the studio nice and calm.
