Mark Fewtrell provides our massage therapy services and is a registered member of Massage New Zealand (MNZ).

Massage is a recognized, effective treatment for many health conditions. It enhances the natural healing processes of the body, relieving tension and stress, and inducing a relaxed, revitalised person.

Furthermore, therapeutic massage is an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programmes. Massage therapy promotes muscle relaxation, can lower blood pressure and heart rate and can increase blood circulation and lymph flow. In addition massage can foster an improvement in range of motion, and an increase in endorphins (the natural painkillers of the body) enhancing health and wellness.

The type of massage that you receive will depend totally on your personal needs. Although the majority of clients at UniSports Sports Medicine receive massage for sports injury related problems, our massage therapist specialises in the following areas:

  • Sports Massage
  • Relaxation Massage
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Trigger Point Therapy

If you require treatment for sport related problems, muscular aches and pains, or stress, then phone for an appointment with our massage therapist.   A referral is not required.
