Relaxation vs. Remedial vs. Sports Massage
When deciding on what massage to book in for at 15 Knots, the the goal of the session will be considered to make the best recommendation for each guest.
Relaxation is often thought of as light massage, but pressure may vary from light-medium-firm depending on preference. The aim of a relaxation session is to balance the body and mind in a rhythmical and flowing full body experience. No particular area is focused on, as the body is relaxed and restored.
Remedial Massages are designed to plan around your individual body imbalances and myofacial trigger points. Various techniques may be used, and follow up sessions may be suggested. Private Health Rebates can be offered for Remedial Massage. 15 Knots also has a HICAPS terminal for on the spot claims.
Sports Massage is planned around your sports season or regular sporting events or routines. Sports Massage has three main areas – Pre, Post, and Recovery Massage. These sessions revolve around your routines and sports and injuries that are acquired during activites. Sports Massages sessions vary from Crisis Massages before games and events to ensure your body is agile for your sporting event to Recovery sessions a few days post event. 15 Knots Massage Studio is here to help you perform at your best and enjoy your favourite sporting activity.
