We’re here for you over the weekend.
The lockdown has taken a toll on a lot of us. Working from home does have its benefits, but one of the downsides is some of us are working from desk set-ups that are far from optimal. Sometimes, the temptation to take to your bed with your laptop is too great to resist. But unfortunately, it’s not great for your posture and alignment.
And to make things worse, with gyms and fitness studios closed, a lot of us aren’t getting that physical workout that we need to keep us strong, balanced, and stretched out.
Sore wrists, aching shoulders, cramped hammies, twinges and jolts – we’ve seen them all.
We’re here for you if you need us.
We’ve got remedial massage appointments and myotherapy appointments available for both Saturday and Sunday. Click here to book an appointment online now.
What can you do for me?
We’re pleased to announce that all our practitioners are back on board, and we’re offering a range of modalities to help get you back in tip-top shape. All of our practitioners are, at minimum, experienced Remedial Massage therapists, and each has a range of extra specialities that they can bring to a treatment.
We currently offer:
- Remedial Massage
- Dry Needling
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage
- Bowen Therapy
- Pregnancy Massage
- Sports Massage
Unfortunately, our Sports Recovery Centre is still closed for the time being, so the ice baths, far infrared sauna, recovery pump boots and hyperbaric chamber are not available right now. Hopefully we’ll be back up and running soon.
If you need us, give us a call. We’re open seven days, late nights on weekdays, and we have instant online booking available.
Call us on 03 99391133.

Are you super-sore but can’t make it in for a treatment? We’ve got lots of things on the shelves for your home care.
If you’ve got cramping and soreness, you might be low in magnesium. It’s very common, and can cause twitches, cramps, fatigue, sleep problems and more. One study suggests that up to 75% of the population is not meeting their required magnesium intake.
Boost your magnesium levels with our Fluid Health Magnesium Oil Spray. Applied directly to the skin, the spray supplies a high dose of magnesium transdermally, allowing your body to absorb what it needs to regulate itself.
If you need a bit of added luxe, try our super-theraputic Muscle Recovery Bath Pack. Our packs combine pure magnesium chloride flakes with mineral-rich macrobiotic sea salt and detoxifying bentonite clay for the ultimate bath experience.
Rub out your sore spots with our trigger point balls. We’ve got spiky ones and smooth ones in stock now, or you can grab a myo roller, and roll out your aching limbs on the floor.
Finally, Zen Herbal Liniment is our go-to for overworked and over-stressed muscles and joints. If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a go. You’ll be surprised at how much it can dial down your pain.
Pop into Fluid and grab something to help you today, your body will thank you. We’re open seven days, and taking bookings for massage and myotherapy appointments. You can click here to book an appointment.
