Massage therapists at Avena Natural Health Care are trained in a variety of massage techniques. If you don't know what you need, call us and discuss your needs with one of our practitioners.

Avena Natural Health Care offers the following styles of massage:

Remedial Massage
This is a firm massage technique which allows your muscular aches and pains to melt away, leaving you feeling supple and invigorated. Using these techniques, you can relieve years of tightness and free yourself from headaches and other symptoms caused by tight muscles.

Sports massage
This is a stimulating massage which allows your body to warm up before exercise or to unwind afterwards. Your muscles will be stretched and pummelled allowing lactic acid to be removed from the muscles resulting in less pain and stiffness after exercise and allowing a more even muscle tone to form.

Keeping the muscles conditioned enables athletes to train and perform more consistently and at a higher level.

Swedish Massage
Chill out to relaxing music as your massage therapist uses sweeping movements across your body to sooth aching muscles and allow your body to forget the stresses of day to day life.

Pregnancy massage
Pregnancy affects your body in a multitude of ways. Massage can help both during pregnancy and in the time of massive adjustment following the birth. Avena has massage therapists that are specifically trained in pregnancy massage so you can be assured that both Mum and baby are in safe hands.

Below are just some of the ways bodywork during pregnancy and the post natal period can help you adjust to your new changes and feel great:
  • Reduce stress, promotes relaxation, facilitate transitions through emotional support and physical nurturing
  • Reduce oedema and blood pressure, relieve varicose veins, and increase blood and lymph circulation
  • Relieve stress on weight-bearing joints (ankles, low back, pelvis)
  • Facilitate hormonal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary and other physiological processes during pregnancy
  • Reduce musculoskeletal strain and pain
  • Contribute to developing flexibility and the awareness necessary to actively participate in the birth process
  • Foster nurturing maternal touch
