At Barangaroo Orthopaedic & Sports Injury Clinic (BOSIC), we offer a comprehensive range of remedial massage services, from therapeutic deep tissue sports massage, trigger point and myofascial release, to a full-body relaxation and stress-relieving massage to ease pain and tension.
Each treatment is specifically tailored to meet your body’s needs. Our therapists work closely with our team of expert physiotherapists, giving them an in-depth understanding of your injury as well as effective ways to speed up your recovery and reduce pain.
Everyone can benefit from having massages regularly; whether you are a professional athlete or an amateur one, or even if you are a "corporate athlete" who suffer from pain due to the sedentary nature of your desk job.

TYPES OF MASSAGE
Our daily habits, postures, movements and tasks all place different stresses and strains on our bodies. Some of these undue stresses cause pain, limited movement and injuries. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle and soft tissue length, tension and tone which will address the specific issues in your body. Different techniques are used to treat a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal problems which makes this massage excellent for back and neck pain, headaches sports injuries and rehabilitation as well as for maintenance.
Sports massage should be considered as part of any training regime whether you are a recreational or professional athlete. Training in any way, shape or form requires strength, discipline and endurance. Our therapists use a combination of deep tissue release work, trigger point release, frictions and stretches to optimise muscle length and improve range of movement, all of which will enhance your performance and keep you on top of your game.
SWEDISH / RELAXATION MASSAGE
This is a more gentle form of massage therapy that usually involves a full-body treatment using longer, lighter strokes to release tension through the mind and the body. It is perfect for relaxation and benefits those who experience stress and tension, recurring headaches, anxiety or poor circulation. It is also the starting point for anyone who has never experienced a massage before. Oh, and it makes an excellent gift to a friend, colleague or loved one.
