.Remedial, Pregnancy Massage & Lymphatic Drainage

Pregnancy massage is a time to pause and acknowledge the physical, emotional and mental changes that occur during pregnancy. Not every pregnancy is the same, so treatment is tailored to suit the needs of mum-to-be. This specialised treatment uses techniques specific to the common musculo-skeletal issues that are unique to pregnancy, while also promoting relaxation and enhancing the mother-baby connection.

Benefits?

  • Reduced back and joint pain, making you feel more comfortable as your baby develops
  • Improved circulation and blood supply for your baby
  • Reduced oedema and swelling, creating a feeling of lightness
  • Reduced muscle tension and headaches
  • Reduced stress and anxiety, as massage soothes the nervous system and boosts mood
  • Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
  • Better sleep

Beneficial for many types of muscular and chronic pain ailments, remedial massage can treat the following:

  • headaches, including stress and tension headaches and migraines
  • chronic neck and shoulder pain
  • sciatica and other back pain
  • carpel tunnel and other over-use injuries

  • Scar tissue due to surgery and radiation for breast cancer

Gentle and mindful scar techniques are an important part of the healing process for mastectomy, lumpectomy, c-section and reconstructive surgery (TRAM, DIEP & TUG Flap).

Scar care enhances your recovery and is very helpful for cording (axillary web syndrome), adhesions and radiation induced fibrosis.

Using gentle scar care techniques it is possible to improve arm and shoulder movements and helps relieve discomfort and tightness.

Scar care can be accompanied with Manual Lymphatic Drainage to further support your recovery.

At times it can be overwhelming and confusing to navigate the unexpected changes to your body during and after treatment for breast cancer.

Bangalow Recovery Massage offers services exclusively for women for treatment of all types of cancers especially breast, understanding that every woman’s journey is different. We use techniques to alleviate and manage the side effects that could be hindering recovery & support you through all stages of recovery.

  • Reduce and ease pulling, tightness & cording
  • Relieve breast and chest wall tightness
  • Relaxing Massage to help with anxiety, nausea and other symptoms
  • Lymphoedema education, prevention and management
  • Gentle scar care after surgery & radiation
  • Advice and support breast implant issues
  • Self care techniques: massage and exercise
  • Referral for bra fittings

The focus of treatment is to improve the flow of lymph fluid through the affected area. This will help reduce swelling and improve the health of the swollen tissue. Reducing the swelling will lower your risk of infection, improve your wellbeing and make movement easier.

Best practice management has a holistic approach and is provided by qualified lymphoedema therapists. The treatment method is called Complex Lymphoedema Therapy (CLT).

CLT consists of the following components

  • Education (understanding risk factors, signs and symptoms as well as staging and self care practices)

  • Skin care

  • Exercise

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

  • Compression therapy

  • Low Level Light Laser

Treatment is individualised for each client and not all components of treatment may be necessary in all cases.

Oncology Massage is a gentle, safe and effective massage technique that is comforting and nurturing for anyone with cancer or in a fragile state of health. Oncology Massage is a very different style of massage with benefits for not just those clients that are very unwell or on a cancer journey but for anyone in need of deep relaxation.

Oncology Massage is a very light touch but mindful, focused, full contact massage technique that touches the client profoundly. Common feedback from clients is that it is quite simply exquisite, blissful, deeply relaxing and healing.

Oncology Massage has been shown to significantly assist with reducing;

• Anxiety
• Depression
• Fatigue
• Nausea
• Pain
