Sports massage, relaxation, rehabilitation, pain relief

Massage therapy can be used for a variety of physical complaints or simply for promoting relaxation and wellbeing. Here at Newtown Acupuncture Centre we offer massage as a modality on it's own as well as a compliment to our acupuncture treatments.    

Pregnancy Massage

Deep Tissue
& Sports massage

Taking care of mum, truly is taking care of baby. Pregnant women really need the opportunity to let go and have some self care time. Whether it's for aches and pains or simply to relax, massage can be helpful. This treatment could be coupled with a therapeutic acupuncture session or as a standalone treatment.

(Hernan, Eileen, Nela)

Relaxation Massage

We understand the need for athletes and sports people to be free of aches, pains and restrictions so they can train and play with ease. Tight fascia and sore muscles can lead to a host of subsequent muscle imbalances. We encourage regular treatments to keep athletes at the top of their game (Hernan, Oscar, Nela )

* Hernan charges $65 for 30 mins and $120 for 60 mins for super strong deep tissue work. Please book this service specifically.

Life can be full of responsibilities and challenges, and sometime this can leave us feeling disconnected and worn out. Relaxation massage can be a great way to take time out for yourself and relax tight tense and tired muscles and get you back in touch with your body. (Oscar, Hernan, Eileen, Nela)


Cupping is not unique to TCM. It has been used across a variety of cultures and ages for different reasons. At our clinic we mostly use it for muscle pain- very often applied to large muscle groups on the back, shoulders, ITB and gluteal muscles. It is great for stretching facia and increasing blood circulation to local sites.

Cupping usually leaves a round cupping mark for 3-10 days after the treatment. It does not tend to hurt, but can feel quite tight. It also may feel a little tender for a day after the treatment. We advise keeping the area covered for the first 4 hours. Plastic not glass cupping. (Please book with an acupuncturist if you want glass/flame cupping)  (Hernan, Oscar, Eileen, Nela)

Weight Reduction/ Shaping

Our massage therapist Hernan trained in the technique of weight reduction massage in Chile where it is a popular treatment. The practitioner manually stimulates the fat cells, breaking fatty accumulations. This treatment is bought as a package, as 10 treatments are needed over a 5 week period. As well as this this, we offer TCM support with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, ensuring a healthy and sustainable pathway for weight loss. We believe that the more internally balanced your metabolism is, the more sustainable your weight loss journey will be. (Hernan lead practitioner, Eileen)

Mobilisation & Stretching

Injuries, lack of exercise and natural ageing can all result in restricted muscle and joint mobility. Massage therapy can help stretch and relax tense muscles, allowing for increased range of motion. We encourage people to take stretching into their daily life and also offer classes in Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Yoga, which are all great systems for increasing flexibility and strength of the joints, muscles and tendons. (Hernan, Oscar, Nela)

Acupuncture & Massage

Massage and acupuncture treatment work well together and we provide special rates for those wishing to use both these therapies on the same day. You can see two practitioners, however it must be on the same day.

15 mins massage for $20

30 mins massage for $50 (usually $55)

60 mins massage for $85 (usually $95)

Please book ahead  to ensure that the massage therapist is free to see you before or after your acupuncture treatment. If not, feel free to ask on the day, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Hot Stone Massage

The hot stones create warmth and circulation at the place they are applied, helping to relax tight and sore muscles. This treatment is particularly good for those that find heat very therapeutic. Hot stone massage provides a lovely sense of relaxation. The massage therapist will continue to massage parts of the body while the stones do their work on other parts. (Hernan, Oscar, Eileen, Nela)

Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic massage can be used for a variety of reasons. It can be wonderful for treating problems at the skin level, as well as promoting the movement of fluids and stimulating the lymph nodes.

We see many people using it for heavy or swollen limbs, to support injuries and as part of our weight reduction treatments. It can be deeply relaxing and also helps with unblocking areas massaged. (Hernan, Eileen)
