For most people, money is the biggest obstacle to getting regular massage. There, we said it. We don’t like to talk about money, it’s supposed to be a private issue. But we’re addressing it head on. Regular massage is a considerable budget item, and it’s important to acknowledge that.
We know this because:
- We walk the walk and get regular massage.
- We are crazy tight with finances too, so if we don’t plan for an expense it doesn’t happen.
But if we expect you to jiggle the numbers and budget $95 for a massage every week, month, or quarter, it’s our job to tell you what you’re buying. So here it is, what you get from a 1 hour, $95 massage.
Clarity in Pricing
What we charge is clearly listed here and in our clinic.
Your initial visit will often have a shorter treatment time, while we familiarize ourselves with your medical history. We need to understand your current health to ensure we are able to provide the most beneficial treatment – today and into the future.
Ease of Scheduling
Scheduling tends to be the second biggest obstacle to getting regular massage. We never think of scheduling massage at a time that is actually convenient to call.
You can schedule with us online right here. If you have restricted availability don’t forget to check out all our therapists – just because one therapist isn’t working doesn’t mean there aren’t appointments available.
Got an emergency? Give us a call - we might be able to “juggle” other appointments to fit you in if something has unexpectedly gone wrong.
If you prefer, you can call the clinic on 9381 1026 to schedule. (We may play a bit of phone tag since we might need to call you back between clients, but leave us a message and we will ring as soon as possible.)
You get our full attention. For 1 hour, you are the superstar. You are the reason we’re in the room. We are here to help YOU create an oasis of calm and relaxation in a world of stress and hurry.
Need silence? We can do that. Want to spend the full hour on your feet? Sure. Warm pillow? Cool pillow? Not a problem.
You get your own dedicated time. No phone. No demands. Just you and your needs.
Collectively we’ve had 28+ years of practice and hundreds of hours of continuing education. They were all just prep for your massage.
Need a stretch to release the neck tension? Perhaps a few guidelines for sitting at your desk for extended time? Or even a “spiky” massage ball to keep working on the knots while you are at work? We have got you covered!
All that experience and training is reflected in the recommendations we give you for post-treatment care. We won’t tell you to book again in 2 weeks if you don’t need it – there is no “standard” time to schedule another treatment. The stretches and other recommendations are chosen to ensure you get the best possible outcomes from your massage even after you leave the treatment room.
We won’t practice any techniques that are unsafe for you and your health condition/s.
In general, people on blood thinners should not be getting deep tissue massage. Ditto that for people in treatment for cancer. It’s also unwise to do aggressive stretching on pregnant women.
These are called contraindications, and we don’t mess around with them.
There are plenty of massage therapists offering discounted massage, operating under the radar. Everyone has a story of a “bad massage experience”, and these often take place in less-principled businesses who employ staff with little or no recognized training.
If a therapist is operating without all the proper qualifications, their insurance may be voided in the event of claim. And your ability to claim from your private health fund could be affected too. That’s scary stuff right there.
We are pleased to display the Diploma's of all our staff - we are proud of the hard work they represent and want you to be aware each member of the team is fully qualified.
High quality massage oil
We only use the best products on your skin. The BEST. You won’t leave our office feeling slimy or drenched in oil. You won’t break out from a cheap fragrance or preservative.Some therapists choose their products based on price. We’ve got our hands in this stuff for 30+ hours a week, so we choose our products based on quality. Only the best for you!
H2Oil does not contain nut oils, which makes it safe for those with nut-based allergies, and doesn’t create a greasy or slimy feeling – the oil washes off without needing soap and leaving you with a beautiful silky and sensual feel after your massage.
Carefully chosen products
Any products we sell in the clinic have been carefully trialled and researched before we recommend them. We source as many of our products as possible from Australian-owned small businesses – so by supporting us you are also supporting them.
But we only stock products that we use – so everything has been tested by one or more of our staff and we are happy to share our experiences with you. Get first-hand experience, not sales talk.
You get to support a local small business
It’s just us! No conglomerate. No fancy management structure or corporate set up.
Just a locally owned business, employing staff, paying taxes, making a living, and participating in the same community we serve. We support local schools, donate prizes to sports clubs and athletes and shop at other small businesses too.
There are fewer and fewer businesses that can stay afloat in an era of big box stores, franchises and Amazon. When you pay $95 for a massage, you can be certain that money is staying in the local economy.
