What is Massage Therapy?

massage brisbane

Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. When muscles and tendons become damaged, impaired, knotted, tense or immobile. Massage provides an effective healing treatment.

Massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

If you haven't ever experienced a quality massage, we thoroughly recommend it.

Massage FAQs

When is the Best Time to have  a Massage?

Massage for chronic, longstanding conditions can be performed at any time. Ideally, your massage should be performed on a regular basis to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful.

For acute or recent injuries, remedial massage is indicated 72 hours following an injury.

  • When is the Best Time for Your Post-Event Recovery Massage?
  • What Duration Should You Book?

    PhysioWorks offer massage treatments for 30, 45, 60 or 90-minute appointments.

    Generally, 

    • 30-minutes is sufficient time to treat one problem area, for example, neck and shoulders.
    • 45 to 60-minutes appointments are sufficient for two or three areas, for example, lower back, or your neck and shoulders.
    • 60 to 90-minutes will cover a full body treatment. 

    How Regularly Should You Have a Massage?

    While it definitely varies from you to the next person, here's some guidelines:

    A new injury or acute condition can often be resolved within a few treatment sessions.

    However, chronic and long-standing conditions will often require a series of treatments to return the area to its normal function. This will usually include a number of weekly massages and will gradually be spaced out in frequency until a maintenance stage is reached.

    While everyone’s needs will be a little different depending on your lifestyle, regular massage works best. Ideally, a maintenance massage should be performed on a regular basis eg monthly to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful.

    For advice specific to your body’s needs, please ask your massage therapist how often you should have a massage to function optimally.

    How Does a Massage Help You?

    As well as assisting in the treatment of the above conditions, massage has a positive impact on various systems of your body. These include:

    Circulatory and Lymphatic Systems

    Massage encourages blood flow to the tissue being treated by stimulating the circulatory system. As the lymphatic system works in close proximity to the circulatory system, the massage will promote reduced pain and swelling by improving lymphatic flow.

    Muscular

    Massage has a direct impact on the muscular system by stretching tight muscles, relaxing and releasing overused muscles, reducing spasms and muscular cramping, as well as assisting in tissue regeneration.

    Endocrine/Hormonal

    It has been proven that remedial massage can promote a decrease in cortisol, which is produced when we experience pain and stress. Massage also promotes an increased level of serotonin and dopamine, which improves your mood, relaxation, and assists in relieving pain. This can also have a follow-on effect by reducing anxiety while enhancing sleep, concentration and energy levels.

    Joints

    By working on the muscles around a joint, massage can increase joint range of motion and assist in increasing joint strength and stabilisation.
