Cindy describes Remedial Massage as “A whole pile of advanced massage techniques designed to find your problem area and gradually remove it from the body. Remedial Massage Therapists are kind of the rockstars of the massage world because they know more about the body, techniques and how to assess what each body needs”Book now
Bindi says…”Stress is a bugger. We all deal with a degree of it and as such our bodies suffer. Every treatment at Rub has a component of relaxation however you can request an absolute full on relax to the maximum treatment and drift off into space. Like Nirvana in a massage sense”Book now
Ollie says “We’ve all been told to improve our posture at some stage during our lives. But do you know what makes a good posture? The Rub team are well trained in analysing how you move and how we could give you some extra hints and tips on how to stop those aches and pains from returning….simple but highly effective.”Book now
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.”Book now
Stephen says…”The only type of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and a rare form of Nirvana. I use the heat wrap at our Unley clinic to deliver a treatment that helps melt away pain, muscle tension and stress. Coupled with this you get a beautiful deep tissue massage to help promote circulation and in turn a myriad of benefits to the body” Only available at Unley with Stephen WaltersBook now
Miki says “Often our muscles get sore and tight from simply overloading them in our day-to-day activities. Maybe you work at a desk all day and experience shoulder pain, or maybe it’s driving long hours that bothers your back. We can help you out by giving you some simple take home exercises to stop you breaking your body and living more pain free and stronger”Book now

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.
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.

A: No but we only accept 60min or 90 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.
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.
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.
