Zare Edwards – Remedial Massage

Dip. H.Sci/RM

Zare has many years experience as a fully accredited remedial therapist and draws from a great range of massage therapy trainings and techniques to offer a comprehensive treatment.
Incorporating remedial and relaxation techniques assists in the recovery process, beneficially impacting on all the body systems, reducing stress and enhancing wellbeing.
Zare’s treatments address the full body to provide relief for the autonomic nervous system and to identify all the tension areas the body holds.  In this wholistic approach specific musculoskeletal imbalances and injuries are addressed and treatments are always individually tailored.
Sessions often include myofascial cupping which is very effective for breaking down adhesions between the skin, muscle and fascia (connective tissue) resulting in nerve relief, deeper muscular relaxation and stimulated detoxification.  When appropriate, dry needling is also incorporated.  This is a targeted technique focusing on the trigger points (adhesions) in the muscle.  Very fine acupuncture needles are used in a very sensitive way to encourage the muscle to reset away from spasm into relaxation.
Treatments are firm but sensitive.
Sessions with Zare are very popular, booking well in advance is recommended.
