Remedial Massage Sydney, CBD, NSW

Our philosophy at Active Performance remedial massage is based on a holistic approach that combines proven methods from both science and ancient eastern philosophies. We believe in aiding the body's natural healing process and helping it maintain homeostasis through various stages:

  1. Manual Therapy: Our practitioners use a variety of modalities and tools to assist in the process of healing, including hands-on techniques such as massage and other manual therapy methods. These techniques aim to address the underlying causes of pain and discomfort, promote relaxation, and improve tissue health.

  2. Mobility: We focus on increasing blood flow to promote healing and building muscle memory for new neural pathways for improved movement patterns. This can involve techniques to improve joint mobility, flexibility, and circulation, allowing the body to move more efficiently and without excess load or impact.

  3. Stability: We work on stabilizing joints that may have been destabilized due to wear and tear, muscular imbalances, or habitual movements. This can involve exercises and techniques to strengthen supporting muscles, improve proprioception, and restore stability to the affected areas.

  4. Strength: We reinforce the new muscle memory pathways and develop bracing strength in the joints to promote long-lasting effects. This can involve targeted strength and conditioning exercises to improve overall muscle function and stability, as well as address any imbalances that may contribute to pain or dysfunction.

  5. Maintenance: We emphasize the importance of ongoing self-care and provide education on customized self-myofascial release, massage, breathing, stretching, mobilization, muscle activation, and other techniques for clients to maintain their health and well-being on an ongoing basis, regardless of their sport specificity or general health goals.

During the first session, we conduct a detailed assessment to understand the nature of the pain or discomfort experienced by our clients. This involves a screening process that includes a comprehensive client history and movement tests, both passive and active, to identify the underlying causes of the problem. Based on our assessment, we will explain the treatment plan and process to the client, with the goal of resolving the cause of the pain and removing the pain symptoms.


The benefits of this approach may include:


  • Increased mobility

  • Decreased inflammation

  • Decreased Pain

  • Relaxation

  • Mental Clarity

  • Maintain Homeostasis

  • Reduced the tension of every day wear and tear of joints

  • Decreased stiffness

  • Reduce stress of everyday life mentally, emotionally, psychologically, physically, and physiologically.

  • Better bowel movements

  • Decreased abdominal distension

  • Increase visceral motility


In our experience we can usually determine the problem within the first session and achieve great results within 4 -6 sessions. What we have found is that results are longer lasting when paired with a specific training program following our philosophy. Sessions with our experienced therapists may vary depending on the client’s body’s physiological needs to maintain homeostasis as well as compliance with healthy nutrition, hydration, and movement exercise homework for recovery.
