Frequently Asked Questions
- Where is BetterU Sydney - Remedial Massage?
BetterU Sydney Remedial Massage is located in the heart of the city near Martin Place. We are a clinic situated next door to the Dior store on Level 4. We also have BetterU HQ in the North West of Sydney in the Norwest Business Park, Bella Vista. (if you want to see more of HQ visit www.betteru.com.au)
- What should I expect on my first visit?
You will fill out a client information sheet (or can prefill here ) and you will discuss with your therapist anything that is concerning you in terms of addressing certain areas, muscular pains or dicomforts you have been having lately.
- Do I have to remove all my clothes for a massage?
No, in fact we don't want that either! BetterU is a sport and science based type of massage so we do move and massage in different positions depending on the area so anything from underwear to sports shorts are ok. It is mostly for your own comfort and in the past we have also massaged fully clothed.
- What do I do during a massage?
Your job once getting a massage is to relax your body and your mind. They are interlinked so it is helpful that your mind be as relaxed as your body to get maximum effect. What we are also expecting you to do is to let us know if a specific technique is too irritable or painful for you. Everyone is different so we want to make sure we work within your threshhold
- Are Remedial Massage's meant to hurt?
Yes and no. There are specific techniques we use to correct muscles (if you have been to a Physiotherapist you most likely know the feeling) but we do listen to our clients and have other techniques to achieve the same results so we rely on you letting us know if something is abnormally uncomfortable. We also have light techniques to use in between and reassess tissue. Our pressure goes anywhere from light - medium to very firm.
- How should I feel after a massage?
Most people feel relaxed and pain free. Although a bit sluggish to begin with most people report feeling more energetic after a massage. Because it rarely happens at BetterU, we have a policy in place for you to contact us if you feel worse days after because it may be a chronic issue that has been addressed and may need some light work done to calm the nervous system down.
