FEEL THE DIFFERENCE
Hi, I’m John Durman. I’m a fully qualified and fully insured male masseuse with the Australian Traditional Medical Society (ATMS). I’m based near Mingara Recreation Club in Tumbi Umbi on the Central Coast NSW. Through my Karinya Blue Natural Therapies business I’ve been pampering people from all over the Central Coast for about 10 years. This is my true passion, I love being able to really get in deep and help my clients feel a whole lot better after their treatments than they did when they first walked through my door. The types of massage I specialise in, which help with neck and lower back problems as well as in other areas, are remedial massage, sports massage, and aromatherapy. As a professional massage therapist I use essential oils to help relieve stress and tension in my clients. You’ll find these oils extremely effective in helping you to relax completely into the massage experience. And as an added bonus you’ll smell great at the end of it!
How Karinya Blue Natural Therapies Is Different
At Karinya Blue Natural Therapies we operate a little bit differently to other masseurs or masseuses on the Central Coast. I’m a big believer in getting to the cause of the pain you’re suffering, rather than just providing a quick “bandaid” relief. Having studied massage for years and gaining all the formal qualifications required to position myself amongst the best male masseuse operators on the Central Coast, I know exactly how your body works. I understand what muscles are connected to others and how. Sometimes the pain you’re feeling is not in the same area as the damaged muscle. Pain can travel through your body in such a way that after a little while you may not even be aware of where it’s starting out from. My clients often comment that I have a special ability to find that exact spot where the pain is originating from – and they definitely know when I find it! For remedial massage and sports massage, I will focus on either the upper body (head to waist) or lower body (waist to feet) for one hour – not both. I believe that in order to get real results, it requires a full hour of focused effort on either half of your body to make a noticeable difference. Aromatherapy works differently, where a massage from head to toes can work in an hour. With Karinya Blue Natural Therapies you get to enjoy aromatherapy oils for every single massage you have – regardless of whether it’s aromatherapy, remedial massage or sports massage. Oils just make the experience a whole lot better. You’ll also be given appropriate exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles affected.
Most of my customers come to me for their first visit because they are in pain. They’ve often been to physiotherapy or seen a chiropractor, and now they’re looking at massage as a form of pain relief. They may have been injured at work – whether it’s paid or unpaid! Or they’ve been injured on the weekend playing sport or enjoying some other hobby.
Consequently it’s no surprise that remedial massage is the most common massage I do here at Karinya Blue Natural Therapies.
As the name suggests, a sports massage is tailored specifically to help with sporting ailments or injuries. Unlike aromatherapy, a sports massage is not designed to be relaxing. To the contrary, it can actually be quite vigorous.
The theory behind a sports massage is that it improves performance potential and allows for the swift recovery of injuries incurred in sports. It’s designed to improve mobility through specific exercises as well as deep tissue massage.
Many people believe that they should only have a massage if they’re in pain. Certainly both remedial and sports massages are an effective means of pain relief for muscular injuries. However the beauty of aromatherapy is that it exists primarily for the purposes of relaxation – which all of us deserve from time to time!
At Karinya Blue we price ourselves competitively, so that it doesn’t have to cost you the earth to look after your health. We accept various forms of payment including cash, Visa, Mastercard and EFTPOS. You may be able to claim a rebate for your massage from your private health fund, depending on your fund and the cover included in your policy.
We also offer you a FREE massage after every 5 massages you have with us. So you pay for 5 massages, and the next one is free. This is an ongoing offer, ie your 6th massage is free along with your 12th, 18th and so on. There is no time limit to this, it just means that looking after yourself by enjoying regular massages effectively gives you a minimum discount of $80 or 16% on your massages over time.
