FOOT CARE REMEDIAL
At MyoFix we combine Foot Care Therapy (reflexology) with Remedial massage. We use traditional Chinese herbs in our Herbal Warm Foot Spa which is greatly beneficial for improving circulation, sleep quality and reducing pain. Our foot spa is recommended before a remedial massage as it helps to relax the body, softening the muscles and the heat promotes better circulation therefore increasing the effectiveness of the remedial massage. We highly recommend this service for people with lower body problems including lower back, hip, knees and ankles.
Fun fact: the average person walks approximately 7500 a day, that’s a lot of work for your feet! Book in now to give your feet the recovery they deserve.

Is Remedial Massage painful?Reduce stress and more
While remedial massage can be a relaxing experience, it is dependent upon the pressure you can tolerate as to what sensation your body will experience. Remedial massage is a highly skilled technique where the massage therapist can locate the problem area which is causing the pain and discomfort. It is very important to communicate to the therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside of your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or tenderness after a remedial massage, but it should subside within a day or so.
How does Remedial Massage work?Remedial massage works on localised areas of your body to break down muscle spasms (knot) and soften up the hard tissue to release any stiffness. Regular massage is an effective treatment to bring back muscle strength and tone. Remedial massage helps to relax the muscles, making musculoskeletal adjustment easier.
What is the difference between Physiotherapy and Remedial Massage?Physiotherapy is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of conditions which result in pain, restricted movement, weakness and altered mobility caused by degeneration, illness or accident. Physiotherapists are qualified to use electrotherapy such as TENS and ultrasound. Traction, manipulation and mobilisation of jaw/limb and vertebral joints are also utilised.
Remedial massage therapy is a hands-on treatment to soften tissue and restore function, relieve pain, promote healing and decrease muscle spasms and/or tension to improve physical or athletic performance. Remedial massage stimulates circulation and improves blood flow to the localised area.
Both physiotherapists and remedial massage therapists are able to prescribe strengthening exercises, stretches, balance exercises and postural training.
Can you exercise after a Remedial Massage?Many massage therapists recommend clients avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after a bodywork session.
Strenuous exercise includes activities such as running, high intensity aerobics, weight lifting or power yoga classes.
What is a Remedial Massage Therapist?A remedial massage therapist has completed extensive studies and has a detailed knowledge of the muscular system, the function of the body and most common conditions and treatments for said conditions.
Can I claim any health rebates from my Remedial Massage?If you have a private health fund, such as HBF, then you may be eligible to claim money back for your remedial massage. Please be aware that at MyoFix Massage you can only claim for remedial massage for health funds where our massage therapists have an approved provider number for you to claim against.
Health Fund rebates are available for remedial massage at MyoFix Massage through a number of health funds, including HBF. Depending on the level of your health cover, you may be eligible to claim money back.
We have a HealthPoint machine (similar to HI-CAPS) available so you can claim on-the-spot, allowing you to only bare the cost of the GAP payment. Please be mindful HealthPoint does not recognise all health fund providers, thus it may be necessary for us to generate an invoice for you in which you can manually claim through your health care provider at a later time. We can provide your invoice either via email or print you a hard copy.
