Recovery Works Massage

Contact Details

Recovery Works is a leading edge practice servicing Wollongong, Illawarra and beyond. Recovery is often the most overlooked component of training and exercise programs, whether they are for athletic performance, occupational health and general well-being. That perfect window of opportunity does not last and our focus is to help you find ways of maximising that sometimes brief period to make sure that you can be at your best.

Recovery Works provides a range of services to help keep your body finely tuned for the demands you place on it.

We subject our bodies to range of stressors on a daily basis

  • Work related stress – overuse syndromes from sitting down infront or a PC, or repetitive manual handling
  • Training related stress – regular physical activity, running, weights, fitness classes, competitive sport
  • Psychological stress – unavoidable stress from demanding jobs and family commitments

Massage is a proven soft tissue therapy that can assist in alleviating many of the conditions that come about as a result of our current lifestyle.

I’ve known Carl as a member of the Ahmedabad Rockets T20 team. The intensity and pace of playing and training for twenty20 cricket places substantial demands on my body and recovery is vital to stay at my best. Carl was always able to help me recover and stay on the park. I’d be happy to recommend Carl’s sports massage and recovery treatment for athletes.

I’ve used Carl’s sports massage and recovery services for many years while training at the University of Wollongong. Since my return from the AIS 6 months ago, I’ve been a weekly visitor at Recovery Works. It helps me stay loose and relaxed prior to racing, and also speeds up my recovery so I can train hard, time and time again.”

I have been a client of Recovery Works for over a year having weekly treatment. As a triathlete I use my body a lot, training 7 days a week up to 30-40 hours and it is important to keep my body in good condition. I have worked with Carl & Grant who have helped keep me injury free, aided my recovery after events and heavy training sessions, and increased my mobility and flexibility. I highly recommended Recovery Works to anyone who requires any type of sports treatment.

I am an NSW and Australian representative in American football and have travelled overseas to Europe to play against the British and Swedish national teams. I contacted Carl for treatment with an acutely sore lower back. After speaking with numerous other health professionals, including my GP, I was getting nowhere. Carl was able to talk to me about the cause, treatment and prevention of my injury after only one session. Carl is friendly, professional and has a great knowledge of sporting injuries and the human body. I would recommend contacting Recovery Works to anyone looking for relief from an injury or to anyone who may be experiencing a general soreness of the muscles. I regularly seek treatment from Carl to help my body recover better from training.
