What you can expect from each massage appointment:

  • You’ll walk away feeling relaxed
  • We don’t do any treatments you don’t wish. We treat everyone individually.
  • Improve your recovery and get you back moving

Why should I get a massage?

 

Sore and tired muscles? Feel like you need to hit the reset button? Would a massage help?

Remedial massage therapy aims to loosen and soften tight or overused muscles. Tight muscles make us feel like we are unable to move freely. The aim of massage is to loosen our soft tissues, allowing the body to access a greater range of movement, feel rested and to improve recovery from activity.

We may also get a massage to help relax our body. Taking time out to allow our body to recover gives our nervous system time to unwind. Massage can help increase blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which aids our bodies natural recovery processes. We are often running around with busy schedules or stressed with the current day to day grind. For some people massage can be that physical and mental reset, allowing us to get on with our activities or plan for the next movement goal.

David's focus has always been on providing the best possible care and experience for his patients, and as Trident has grown he has enjoyed working and expanded the business with like minded practitioners who share the same values that Trident was initially built on.

These values are to apply a unique and tailored approach to musculoskeletal care whilst providing education, hands on 1:1 sessions, coupled with exercise to alleviate pain and improve performance.
David has a keen interest in working with athletes or anyone looking to get that little extra out of their body.

His focus is movement based management of musculoskeletal problems with an emphasis on assessing the QUALITY of movement within a skill. Whether that be a squat in a gym, running through the park or picking up your child. Each of these movements can be assessed into fundamental parts and rebuilt to create more robust humans performing at their optimal capacity.

Laura never feels as though she is doing enough (high achiever) so whilst being in clinical practice she also teaches at Macquarie University and is undertaking her PhD at Sydney University. Her research is looking at back pain in children and teenagers.
Outside of the clinic you’ll find Laura sipping on triple shot latte’s to stay wired for her local vinyasa yoga class.
Laura brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and a much needed female influence previously not seen at Trident. She is sure to be a huge asset to the team who is warm, welcoming and genuine in helping you help yourself!
