Do You Find That You Run Out Of Time To Get Things Done?

Don’t Stress… Our Massage / Myotherapy Team Are Available 7 Days!

We know it can be very difficult to get in for a massage during the week. Our massage team are very good and therefore often difficult to get an appointment with. Unfortunately however, we often have patients come with issues after looking for a quick fix massage at their local shopping centre.

The story we hear is ‘I didn’t know you guys were open on weekends’

We are indeed here on the weekend and we find our patients are thrilled to be able to come in at a time that suits them!

Saturdays

Shinya Yoshida & Akiko Kato are the soft tissue powerhouses of Saturdays. Available from 9am - 5pm, the Japanese duo are flexing their hands in preparation for your tight muscles.

Sundays

Akiko Kato & Julius Principe are treating the sore and tight muscles of Richmond every Sunday.

Do you charge more for weekend massages?

No we don’t! Our rates & outstanding massages are the same every day, even on Sundays!

Do I Need To Book?

We strongly recommend you booking in advance to get in on the weekend. Unfortunately we have to turn people away every weekend as the massage team are so busy!

Taping for Postural Correction

Taping for Postural Correction

Taping a clients back is a common tool used at the clinic for postural correction to hold the body in the perfect anatomical position and to create awareness of slouching during day to day living. A huge majority of our cases we see of lower and upper back pain is essentially self inflicted through bad habits of poor posture and can easily be improved to prevent any future and long-term injuries.
