Inner-city relaxation doesn’t get much better than the remedial massages at Milk and Honey
Milk and Honey is located a stone’s throw from the main drag of North Melbourne. From the moment you walk through the door and take that first deep belly-breath, you know some serious relaxation is on the cards.
The Milk and Honey team like to keep it simple. They offer high-quality remedial massages which are tailored to you by qualified remedial massage therapists. You can choose your duration (45, 60 and 90-minute consultations are available) and what areas you would like to focus on, whether you have muscle tension, acute or chronic pain or just a need to unwind and smooth out that brow.
The Victoria Street shop front has been thoughtfully curated. Think blonde woods, clean white walls, aromatherapy diffusers, dimly lit lights, plush furnishings and lots of greenery. Upstairs you'll find the treatment rooms, which includes a special pregnancy room which is fitted with a futon. This gives expected mummas some extra comfort and support.
Pro tip: massages are 100 per cent more enjoyable when you just lean into the relaxation. Your senses heighten and you're able to take in every touch, sound and smell which is quite a thrill when you're overly stressed.
The massage tables are heated so there are no uncomfortable breezes. For extra comfort, massage therapists begin treatments with a top-to-tail general massage which includes placing an unexpected (but welcome) heated wheat bag on the small of your back. The pace of the massage was perfect, with the therapist kneading, rolling and pinching every last knot.
If you're in the market for a remedial massage, consider heading to Milk and Honey. Regular massages like this can help with injury prevention and it has been known to increase concentration and sleep quality, too.
Sessions start at $80 for a 45-minute treatment (but there are private health insurance benefits if you've got remedial covered). Book in a session via the website.
