Benefits of Massage

Massage focuses on the soft tissues of the body, namely muscles, tendons, fascia and ligaments. The main aim of massage is to restore and normalize soft tissues. Massage is especially effective at
  • reducing excessive muscular tension
  • increasing flexibility and range of motion in joints
  • reducing pain
  • improving posture
  • enhancing soft tissue healing through increased blood flow and lymphatic fluid flow and drainage
  • reducing excessive scar tissue formation
In addition to the above, massage can also provide a number of psychological health benefits, such as
  • an enhanced feeling of well being
  • a reduction in stress and improved relaxation
  • increased dopamine and serotonin levels
  • improved sleep
  • improved immune system function

These benefits are delivered in a natural, safe, non-invasive method and thus do not carry the harmful side effects associated with prescribed medications and invasive medical procedures. Massage is effective and drug free.


I came to you after some hip pain following the Melbourne Beach Half Marathon. Not only did you address my hip but you looked at the whole picture and worked on my knee and back. It helps that you have a background in fitness and running so you can relate to us when we come to you for aches and pains. As a fellow therapist it was great to be able to talk to you about the causes of my injury, not just fixing the immediate pain.
