Maintenance Treatments

At Muscle Medicine we believe in maintaining your soft tissue health in the same way you look after the rest of yourself!  You visit the dentist to maintain your oral health, the GP for your general health, skin specialist and so on.

We recommend a regular maintenance or Life Care Treatment to help maintain the health and integrity of your soft tissues. 

A Maintenance Massage will provide a targeted treatment to align with your lifestyle activities and intensity.  The therapist will use a range of techniques within their training to provide a sense of relief to tired and stiff muscles.

If you don’t have specific pain or discomfort [over a 4/10 pain level] this is the treatment for you.  If you have specific pain higher than 4/10 we recommend you book a Deep Tissue or Structural Integration appointment.


What are soft tissues?  Is it just my muscles?
The soft tissues of the human body are made up from;

  • Muscles
  • Tendons & Ligaments
  • Fascia
  • Nerve Tissue
  • Adipose Tissue (or fat)
  • Synovial Membranes
  • Blood Vessels

How often should I have a maintenance massage?

Very Active Lifestyle - training 4+ times a week or a very physical profession | every 2 – 3 weeks
Regularly Active Lifestyle – training 2+ times a week or a job that is 50% active & 50% sedentary | every 4 – 6 weeks
Sedentary Lifestyle – sedentary job with min 60 mins walking a day | every 6 weeks
Very Sedentary Lifestyle – sedentary job, no physical activity | every 3 weeks to assist with maintaining circulation, joint health and soft tissue function, which are at risk to the low activity nature of your life

Is a Maintenance Massage right for me even if I haven’t had a massage with your clinic yet?
Yes! Maintenance refers to the general upkeep of your soft tissues.  Helping you to maintain your healthy and active lifestyle.

If I am in pain should I book this treatment?
If your pain is less than 4/10 then a maintenance treatment can help to provide relief and direction on how to maintain a pain free body.

If you classify your pain as greater than 4/10 we would recommend you book a Deep Tissue or Structural Integration Appointment. 

Do I need to see the same therapist all the time?
No, our therapists leave comprehensive notes in our CRM system, so each of the therapists can see your history and the treatments you have had previously.

The treatment will differ between therapists, as their styles differ, but the focus will remain the same – providing you what your body needs.
