Sports Massage techniques and pressure will vary depending on where the client is in their training program.
Sports Massage can be inclusive of recovery massage after big athletic events. Here the focus is on flushing and working through the muscles to improve recovery times.
It utilises a lot more dynamic techniques such as stretching, myofascial release and rock-taping deep tissue work. Active release techniques may also be used. The idea being that we can soften the muscles quickly and painlessly.
There is less intention towards specificity and trigger points, unless very active and currently painful. The focus is geared towards general long strokes, stimulating blood flow. This also frees up any muscle tension while simultaneously causing minimal discomfort.
The definition for Remedial is “giving or intended as a remedy or cure”
Remedial Massage is a very thorough and precise all over massage. It is designed to smooth out any areas of tension or knots you may have.
Remedial Massage can also be an all over, general massage. The therapist treats you head to toe finding and releasing tension as they go.
It can also be a very targeted, focussed session. For example a dedicated leg session or an upper body, shoulders and neck treatment. This option is ideal when you have specific concerns.
The massage can be inclusive of skills and techniques like myofascial release, trigger point therapy, dry needling and cupping – all of which we are skilled at at Revive Australia. Remedial Massage is a starting point from which each therapist can add techniques and skills for their clients full benefit.
Relaxing Massage is a gentle, full body treatment, lighter in touch and focused on flow and rhythm that promotes deep relaxation. Relaxing Massage will help your mind as well as your body with heated massage tables, hot creams, and soothing ambiance.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a type of massage that encourages the natural flow of the lymph – a fluid that runs through our body performing many important functions. It provides affected sites with an increased amount of cells responsible for immunity and cleaning up of the area, and carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart and into the liver where they are processed. This type of massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph towards the lymph nodes and thus to reduce toxins, and or fluid build-up in your body. Lymphatic Drainage is often used in hospitals in Europe, where it helps to reduce swelling, fluid retention, scar healing post emergencies, and beauty surgeries. Not yet common in Australia – but we are bringing it here for you.
- Accelerated wound and scars healing (post surgeries, plastic surgeries, lipo-suctions, breast augmentations, face-lifts, tummy tucks etc)
- Helping with sinus congestion, respiratory problems, colds
- Reduction of swelling (lymphoedema, post-op water retention, puffiness.)
- Boosted immune system (lymph holds the body’s auto-immune system bodies that travel faster and act better when flushed in and out of the affected areas)
In our treatments we use a range of tools and techniques – such as:
