Anyone! Whether you are an athlete, office worker, parent or student – no matter what you do, if you are suffering soreness, tightness or pain in any muscle or joint, or if something is just 'not quite right', an RMT session is for you.
Q. Can I claim RMT on Private Health Insurance cover?
In most cases, yes. However, this will depend on the type of cover you have, which insurer you are with and how often you have claimed previously. We recommend that you check with your health fund as to what you are covered for, to avoid any unexpected costs.
Q. What should I bring/wear to a RMT appointment?
You should bring any information, referrals or medication that is relevant to your health and current musculoskeletal complaint to your appointment. Wearing firm fitting underwear is a must.

Please inform us as early as possible if you are running late for you appointment. You will be seen but your appointment will be kept to your booking length as we have to be mindfull of other client booking times and you will be charged the full amount of the booked treatment.
Q. What happens on the first visit?
Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled service and complete a confidential health history as part of your assessment. The massage practitioner will listen to your concerns, assess your individual needs as well as other factors that may be contributing to your injury (lifestyle, nutritional status, etc.). A treatment plan will be developed with you to ensure you receive appropriate treatment that will help you return, as much as possible, to your normal activities. Registered massage practitioners will also describe the treatments to be provided to ensure that you are comfortable with them. Your consent is sought before treatment is provided.
Q. How frequently should I come for massage treatments?
The frequency of visits for massage therapy depends on the condition being treated. Therefore, it is on a case specific basis. In general, specific injuries will require regular visits for a designated period of time to restore the normal function of the area. The massage practitioner will discuss a treatment schedule with you once the problem area has been properly assessed. Those people who do not have a specific injury per se however seek massage treatments for maintenance or preventative reasons generally will require 1-2 visits per month. This again is a guideline and may require modification depending on the patient.
We strive to maintain your optimum personal comfort levels so please let us know if you have any concerns or issues at the beginning of the session.
