DRY NEEDLING

Paul says “Dry Needling is not Acupuncture...but it does use the same needles. It is a great technique for painfully tight muscles. We use the needles to get the muscle to relax and switch off. You may feel some discomfort associated with the insertion of the needle, and often when the muscle involuntarily twitches however the results are amazing. Ollie, Cindy and myself all have this advanced level of training.”

Q: How do I book in?

A:  Call one of our great admin team on 8357 3773 or

Q: How do I know I am going to get a great quality massage?

A:  All our therapists are experienced, well qualified (some say ‘over qualified’) and continuing to study everything they can get their hands on about massage and the human body.  We do a thorough assessment process so we find out as much as we can about you, your body, your aches and pains and determine what YOU want out of the massage.  It’s not about us telling you what’s best, it’s making sure we work together to get the best outcome for you.

Q: Can I claim health fund rebates?

A: Majority of our therapists have their provider numbers with all the major private health funds. Please check the list below before you book so you know who has what.  Sometimes when a new therapists joins the team it takes 6 – 8 wks to get their provider numbers….it’s a pain in the butt but something that is out of our control. The invoices we give you have all the appropriate numbers on them so it’s as simple as emailing them into your health fund. All of our therapists are members of our professional massage associations.

All Health Funds – Ailsa Forrest, Bindi Rice, Julie Kim, Lauren Gibbons, Mitch Pearse, Sarah Hobbs, Sarah Thornton, Warren Dumont.

All but Medibank/HCF – Paul Averill

Awaiting Health funds – Stephen Walters, Kris Lajumin, Washington Chaves

Q: Is there a different cost for Initial Treatments?

A:  No but we highly recommend 60, 75 or 90min consults for a first appointment as we require that period of time to assess well and then get down to some treatment so you come out feeling different…better.

Q: How will I know the treatment has been successful?

A:  If massage is right for you, you will feel more relaxed (deeper voice, sleepy, chilled out blissed hippy chick type), have less pain and be able to move more freely.  You may feel a bit tender the next day but this is all part of the body healing itself so in 48 hours you should be fantastic.

Q: How often should I book in?

A:  Great question! Getting massaged regularly is the best form of treatment.  Having one every day would be our idea of heaven however there are restrictions that don’t allow this for everybody.  The answer is very different for each person.  Some people who are dealing with injuries need maybe 2 x 30 minutes a week until the body heals, other people like it once a week, whilst most would fit into the once a fortnight, three weeks or month.  Most of our clients have a regular schedule on the times and days that suit them.

Q: What's your Complaints and Refund Policy?

Client Complaint Policy

We value complaints as they assist us to improve our products, services and client service.

This policy has been designed to assist both clients and staff. Rub Massage is committed to consistent, fair and confidential complaint handling and to resolving complaints as quickly as possible. We aim to make it easy for people to make a complaint if they are dissatisfied and we will treat all clients making a complaint fairly.

Definition of a complaint

Complaints are defined as any expression of dissatisfaction or grievance made to staff by a client or member of the public in relation to our business.

It may be received through various means including phone, SMS, email, social media, handwritten, in person, in conversation or via a third party.

Recording complaints

All complaints made, verbal or written, are to be recorded by entering the details in an email and sending to HR Manager or Director ASAP.

When taking a complaint, record the name and contact details of the client, as well as full details of the complaint including the date, details of all communication with the client and any actions you feel are required to resolve the complaint.

Recorded complaints will also be monitored for any ongoing trends and efforts made to resolve any ongoing issues.

Clients’ personal details or details of their complaint will not be divulged to third parties unless we have their written consent.

Informing clients of progress

We strive to resolve all complaints within two days. Written complaints are to be acknowledged within two days.

Clients are to be given an approximate timeframe for resolution at the time they make their complaint.

Clients are to be informed of the progress of their complaint regularly, especially if there are any delays or changes to what has been agreed.

Clients are to be informed of any changes to our products or services as a result of their complaint.

Where appropriate, clients who have had a complaint resolved will be contacted at a later date to see if they are happy with how their complaint was handled.

Responding to complaints

All people making a complaint are to be treated with courtesy. Where possible, complaints will be resolved at the first point of contact. If appropriate to the complaint, frontline team members can offer an appointment at no charge to resolve a complaint immediately, with the complaint to still be recorded.

If the complaint can’t be resolved immediately, the client is to be given a timeframe, a contact person and details of our complaint handling process. Where possible, the staff member taking the complaint details will be the contact person.

At all times during the complaint handling process it is encouraged that staff members seek advice from the clinic director if required.

Complaints can be resolved by:

    • Bringing the complaint to the attention of the person to whom the complaint is directed
    • Dealing with the concern directly by having this person contact the client involved
      • Methods may include phone and email contact
    • Escalation of the complaint by bringing to the attention of the clinic director

Escalation of complaints

If a complaint cannot be resolved by the usual complaint process, it should be referred to the clinic director and the client will be informed and given an amended timeframe for resolution.

If we cannot resolve the complaint to the client’s satisfaction, we will inform them about where they can take further action (e.g., Office of Consumer and Business Affairs, Equal Opportunity Commission).

Refund Policy

A refund of either part or the whole of the payment cost of the massage treatment may be offered by the Director only when:

The complaint is made within 24 hrs of receiving the massage treatment and is in writing.

After investigation by the Director that it is deemed appropriate to do so.
