Massage at The Urban Alchemist

Remedial massage in Carlton North, Melbourne

The state of Massage Therapy during COVID Lockdown Stage 4:

* Please note * These sessions are accessible for you if you are in pain, or if your function or ability to care for yourself or for others is impacted negatively if you do not receive treatment.

We are offering one-hour Holistic Flow Mobilization and Massage sessions with our gentle Chiropractor, Tracy Kopp. These are designed for people who know their bodies benefit most from massage and gentler techniques (yes, we see you!). Remedial Massage is not permitted under Stage 4 Restrictions, however, you may access a holistic session with a Chiropractor if you are in pain or have significantly reduced function.

These gentle mobilisation and massage chiropractic sessions address discomfort and reduced movement. Using a blend of gentle joint movement and deep tissue techniques, your therapist works to decrease tension and pain and improve motion and ease in the body.

You will also receive a combination of trigger-point therapy, aromatherapy, breathwork, reiki and shamanic techniques as part of your session.

You’ll leave with improved motion, decreased tension and pain and a plan for managing your symptoms moving forward during COVID and into the future.



The following information is what we usually offer at The Urban Alchemist. Don’t worry, we’ll be back!

Deep Flow Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage focuses on treating injury, muscular pain and postural imbalances, relieving tension so your body can function at its best.

When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, the body responds with stiffness, aches and pains. Massage provides effective treatment using a variety of strokes and pressures to relieve and re-balance the body.

During your consultation, our highly experienced practitioners will tailor a treatment to suit your goals, physical condition and touch preferences.

Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a gentle and effective style of massage that works on people of all ages and helps numerous health conditions.

The practitioner uses diagnostic techniques from Chinese medicine and then uses their whole body – palms, thumbs, elbows, forearms, knees and feet – to apply pressure to relieve tension and energy blockages. This technique combined with stretches and gentle joint rotations releases tight muscles, improving joint movement and posture.

Holistic Remedial Massage

Holistic remedial massage is a blissful blend of targeted deep tissue massage alongside other relaxing, whole-person therapies. It is a somewhat less vigorous approach than traditional remedial massage and will decrease tension and calm your nervous system.

The style of bodywork is aimed at lifting the physical and spiritual condition of the whole person. Think science and art. A number of whole-body healing methods may be used together with ‘regular’ massage in these sessions, depending on what your body is calling for.

Ka Huna Massage for Relaxation and Vitality

Ka Huna massage is known for its effectiveness in decreasing tension and pain. In contrast to many other massage treatments, Ka Huna Massage is not purely physical.  Our therapist employs subtle energetic healing techniques which work on your emotional and spiritual wellbeing to leave you feeling revived.

Your practitioner will use her hands, forearms and elbows with long, flowing strokes both over and under your body. Your body will be moved around the table in a lightly energetic, yet deeply relaxing and flowing way.  You are covered in organic oil from head to toe, while alternating soft and deep tissue pressure is applied using the practitioner’s own body weight and loving hands.

Ka Huna stimulates the natural flow of energy within the body and work to reduce stress, promoting your overall wellbeing.
