Massage has been documented as being a part of global culture for thousands of years.
Humans have used massage as a form of healing, bonding and caring for one another

So, If you are searching for “Massage near me” in Auckland it will not be long before you are
going to be stumbling (delightedly) upon the Cairnhill Physiotherapy in-clinic massage therapist,
Nicole Berry. Nicole is masterful in the world of massage and health and wellbeing in general.
Remedial massage, relaxation massage, sports massage, you name it, this massage therapist
has worked in the world of naturopathy, ayurvedic and clinical massage and brings a wealth of
experience to the Cairnhill team.
As a massage therapist Nicole sees herself as a part of your journey, “I like to think that the
healing process is not coming directly from me, the therapist, but from the holistic nature of
massage itself and the choice my clients have made to seek it.” With this in mind she is there to
aid your recovery, using an overarching and comprehensive approach that caters specifically to
the individual. She tries to open all clients up to using the word, “journey” intentionally. This is a
process, massage can be great as a one off but it was not designed that way. It is a journey and
your massage therapist has the privilege of being with you as you progress. As your therapist
she is there to provide the tools you need i.e. knowledge and awareness of your body so that
you may continue to progress along this path of healing and general wellbeing.
Massage and physiotherapy do incredible jobs respectively but can also complement each other
in ways that are still being explored in depth by the mainstream health services. Cairnhill
Physiotherapy Clinic is eager to bring our clients the opportunity to explore the world of remedial
massage in conjunction with physiotherapy appointments. Our clients can truly understand what
so many are yet to experience; that by pairing these forms of healing you are giving your body
that much more in a fully comprehensive wellbeing model. This is not to say that you can’t have
a massage session without being a physio client or vice versa, but simply an option for those of
you healing from injury or attaining performance goals.
So, If you are recovering from an injury, experiencing postural pains, have a chronic condition or
have a specific performance goal in mind it sounds like you require an intensive therapeutic
session of the remedial kind. If that is the case then these are the benefits you are looking at;
remedial massage therapy aids the body’s natural healing processes, speeding up muscle
recovery time, increasing circulation, relieving muscle tension, reducing pain, improving range of
motion and addressing muscle imbalances, a star line up when it comes to the healing process.
Remedial massage is slightly more focused on your specific complaints but this may not be you.
You could be working on your preventative game and wanting to embrace the benefits of
relaxation massage. In that case, regular relaxation massage has a range of benefits including
improved circulation and blood flow and a rise in serotonin levels and therefore decreased
stress levels and heightened mood. It relieves muscle tension and aids sleep, building your
resilience as you adapt to the pressures that we have all found ourselves under recently. Nicole
uses hot oils infused with essential oils for full sensory immersion so this can really be your time
to zone out, remember that these appointments are for you. If you want to take this session to
completely allow yourself to clear your mind and give up the outside world then this is the
experience that your massage therapist will help facilitate.
There are a million excuses not to embrace the things that are good for us but right now, with
everything happening in the world around us, why not take a moment to spend on you?
Enhance your wellness journey and give yourself every opportunity to tackle the external.
