    Great experience with the PhysioActive team and my physio Tim. Through various accidents and a few decades playing contact sport, I have spent a disproportionate amount of time being ‘mended’ by physiotherapists and I am therefore well placed to make an informed review. For me, the thing that sets PhysioActive apart from others, is their attention to detail and a total care package that extends beyond their treatment rooms. A typical session at PhysioActive has all the things you would expect, attentive physiotherapists, the latest equipment, light well ventilated treatment rooms and a larger exercise area. Prior to departure, you are given a briefing on your home exercise routine that is then sent to you on the PhysioApp. This app offers all the exercises in short videos to remind you of the exercise form. It also keeps you remotely connected to your personal physiotherapist who can track your progress. You can also exchange comments and ask questions. I am happy to recommend PhysioActive. https://goo.gl/maps/SEY1F6e3RnCFQ6gw5

    I visited PhysioActive twice and I'm very happy that I chose PhysioActive for my treatment. I called upfront before making my appointment, they were very friendly and kind, and explain the information I needed very clearly. When I arrived, I'm very impressed with the location. It's very cozy, clean, and quite spacious. I had my sessions with Timothy, he's very friendly and clear with the explanations. He also took the time to observe and understand my complaints, and focus on the root cause of the pain I'm experiencing. He gave some exercises I need to do at home, so that my complaints are resolved for long term. Really recommend PhysioActive https://goo.gl/maps/s1zJi9hxbEo7m1US8

    I was suffering from shoulder pain and tightness, as well as reduced shoulder mobility for several months. Despite seeing several physiotherapists, the issue persisted. Brigitte's treatment of dry needling, sports massage and mobilisation has completely eradicated the symptoms within weeks. Brigitte thoroughly treated my injury and provided advice and support beyond it.

Deep Tissue Massage

When many people think of a massage, they picture a relatively light touch, working the skin and surface muscles. While such a massage can promote blood flow and be very relaxing, it won’t do much to help chronic conditions and old injuries.

This is where deep tissue massage is helpful. Deep tissue massage, as performed by the professional massage therapists at PhysioActive, can help relieve the symptoms of deep pain, stiffness, and limited motion.

For Injuries

When you heal from an injury, scar tissue often forms in the place of the injured tissue. Scar tissue isn’t as mobile as the original tissue and can limit your movement and cause pain. A deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper muscles and connective tissue, aiming to break up this scar tissue and restore your mobility.

For Chronic Disease

Deep tissue massage can also be quite helpful for chronic diseases like arthritis and fibromyalgia. Using deep strokes with the fingertips, elbows, and knuckles, our expert massage therapists release knots of muscle and connective tissue. This reduces flare-ups of chronic problems as well as soothing current pain and stiffness.
