Remedial Massage Melbourne

Relieve tension, reduce stress, recover sooner

For the best remedial massage in Melbourne CBD, The Alignment Studio has your back (and neck, hammies, glutes…). A useful tool in the management and treatment of pain and muscular tension, massage is an important part of our holistic service offering, and something we consider a very necessary indulgence.

It’s not just about relaxation, either. With our increasingly sedentary lives (and device addiction!) giving rise to conditions like tech neck and Upper Crossed Syndrome, massage is more important than ever to counteract reduced mobility.

What Is Remedial Massage?

Also known as clinical massage, remedial massage involves treating soft tissue dysfunction through hands-on manipulation; ultimately working to rehabilitate, maintain and enhance the body’s natural mobility. At The Alignment Studio, we tailor each massage treatment to your needs, whether that’s untangling your knots after a stressful week, or working alongside our physios to speed up your post-injury recovery.

Benefits Of Remedial Massage

Aside from relieving muscular tension, remedial massage is known to improve circulation, enhance joint and muscle function, decrease pain, regulate neurohormones and assist with anxiety, tension headaches and insomnia, while encouraging relaxation and enhancing feelings of wellbeing.

The many benefits of remedial massage include:

  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced pain
  • Fewer headaches
  • Better sleep
  • Increased mobility
  • Reduced stress and anxiety

Conditions Remedial Massage Can Assist With

(*Please consult your doctor if you have a pre-existing medical condition, and make your condition known to your massage therapist before your treatment.)

To our Valued Clients

Your health and wellbeing is our priority. In light of the escalated measures to contain COVID-19, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart I have made the decision to temporarily close the studio effective 5pm Wednesday, 25 March 2020.

In the 30+ years Collins Place Physio and The Alignment Studio have been offering health support to the people of Melbourne, we have never had to close our doors. However, I feel I have a duty of care to both my staff and everyone in our community.

I will be closely following the updates from the Federal and State Governments and will communicate as soon as we are able to reopen.

During the closure, should you have any questions relating to your current treatment plan, you can contact your treating practitioner via email. All patients are also welcome to contact me directly at

Thank you for your support of The Alignment Studio. Our patients and clients make The Alignment Studio a great place to work and the whole team looks forward to welcoming you back into the studio soon.

I would like to wish you and your loved ones strength, courage and most of all good health as we go through this challenging time together.

Warm regards,

Pete Hunt
