What is Remedial Massage?

If someone mentions massage therapy; you may think of a candle lit room, scented oils, an ocean soundtrack and a whimsical hippy called Sven. Whilst we can certainly provide you with this relaxing and soothing therapeutic experience (minus Sven!) – remedial massage therapy goes beyond this to provide you with longer lasting change and pain relief.


Remedial – derived from the word “remedy” – means to ascertain what the problem is and remedy it = i.e; not just smear nice smelling oils all over your body. This does not necessarily mean that there will be gritting teeth and bearing through pain – the remedy for a certain pain may well be very gentle!


The Clarity team will work with you to discuss your treatment goals, the influence of ‘life’ on your body, teach you about your musculoskeletal system and it’s capabilities, and provide you ways to increase your benefits from treatment.


Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements, based on any current or old injuries, medical history and presenting issues, in consultation with your practitioner. Your session may involve one or a combination of the following remedial therapies.

Cannot even express how thankful I am to have found Clarity. From the warm welcome the moment you walk in the door, to the incredible massages I’ve had there, to the nurturing products, there is nothing that has been left out of the Clarity experience. But mostly, to know the heart behind all of these and to FEEL that the whole time you are there - the love and warmth in such a safe and healing space. I cannot recommend enough ❤️read more

I love almost everything about Clarity. Everyone there is so lovely and welcoming. The services offered are fantastic also well priced. They're professional and very good at what they do, on the odd occasion I've had to see a different practitioner they've picked up right where the previous one left off.One and only ongoing issue, is the disappointing colouring pencils. Otherwise 10/10!read more

Katie gave me the best massage I have ever received and I don't say that lightly as a therapist myself. She is so thoughtful with every stroke and puts so much care and love into her massages. I was blown away by how relaxed she made me feel, all while getting into my tight muscles. I'll be coming in again thats for sure! Thank you beautiful <3read more
