Brendan brings his passion, and attention to detail, to his remedial massage and kinesiology service that results in a complete and satisfying experience for his clients. After completing a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in 1997 Brendan initially worked in the field of psychological support for people suffering chronic pain. This included being a Lifeline consultant. He subsequently graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2008 and worked as a clinical physiotherapist. He also established his Personal Training business but was always drawn back to hands-on care. Brendan received his Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2008. Subsequently, he worked as a Course Leader at the highly regarded Q Academy Massage School in Brisbane. He believes that each body has a unique and particular pattern for developing and holding tension. This led him to study kinesiology and add that skill set to his consultations.
This holistic education has provided Brendan with a unique combination of healing options. He possesses an excellent feel for his massage craft with a flow that will leave his clients feeling calm and relaxed. The power of his massage work comes in his ability to assess and manipulate the muscle, tendons and fascial structures of the body.
In his work, Brendan thrives on finding a suitable treatment pattern for his clients. Brendan’s priority is that each client has a better understanding of their condition and have a therapeutic program to ensure each of their particular needs are addressed.
Brendan Scott provides his professional services as an independently owned and operated business. ABN 48 615 818 573. PhysioWorks does not own or operate his business.
Brendan’s special interest areas are remedial and sports massage, kinesiology and massage protocols for psychological stress, anxiety and depression and massage applications in the management of chronic pain.
Remedial Sports Massage
Being a former representative athlete himself, Brendan is familiar with the many approaches massage can be used for race preparation, training recovery and injury management. Clients enjoy his unique techniques and philosophy to managing iliotibial band syndrome, knee pain, and calf pain. He also has a way of releasing trigger points that dramatically minimises the pain often endured by clients with other therapists. Brendan has experience working as part of the sports medicine team for numerous private secondary schools, Queensland Gymnastics Championships, Parkrun, Sandgate Sunset Run and the Jetty to Jetty Fun Run.
Massage for Psychological Conditions
This is an increasingly popular service. Brendan combines traditional massage with work on specific acupressure points that relate to the psychological state and emotion experienced.
Massage for Chronic Pain
Brendan believes that a massage is an underutilised tool for the management of chronic pain. Muscular pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome as well as post-surgical pain can be relieved with massage. Brendan uses Muscle Energy Techniques to help breakdown the pain-spasm-pain cycle, myofascial release and cross-fibre frictions to work on scar tissue and movement restrictions and Acupressure to help dampen down the sensitised nervous system. Massage can be used as part of a multi-disciplinary approach to prolong the time between relapse and help keep clients longer in remission and in a functioning state.
Kinesiology is a Holistic Alternative Therapy that incorporates the Chinese Medicine models of the Meridian system and the 5 Elements with Manual Muscle Testing to determine the functional state of the body. Through following a standard testing protocol, your kinesiology therapist will assess and bring into balance the physical, chemical and emotional components of an injury or issue/problem.
