Massage | Nutrition
Our Massage Therapists specialise in treating muscle pain and injuries and also give a lovely relaxation massage.
We have 2 massage clinics
in Brisbane at Bardon
and offer a large variety of massage therapy to suit you.
We pride ourselves on giving a great massage every time and fixing your muscle pain and tension faster and more effectively than your average therapist.
We take the time to listen to you and note your massage preferences to ensure that you are happy with your treatment.
Massage makes you feel good by relaxing muscles that have become tense due to work, bad posture or stress.
Regular massage reduces recovery time after exercise and makes you more aware of when your body is out of balance, preventing chronic pain and discomfort.

Combat stress and fatigue. Relaxation massage is a gentle, restorative treatment to get the circulation flowing, clear blockages and soothe your frazzled nerves.
When was the last time you took time out for yourself and had a "Me Day?"
Parents and those who are working long hours really benefit from regular massages.... break the cycle of busyness and stressing out and take some time out for you.

The pelvis and spine undergoes a lot of movement and pressure during pregnancy. Pregnancy Massage can help you move better, easing discomfort and allowing you to sleep more comfortably. Massage also prepare the muscles around the hips, legs and pelvis for labour.
Deep Tissue Massage
A deeper style of massage working on finding trigger points and knots in tight muscles. Uses very firm, deep technique to release years of built up adhesions or rope like areas in the muscles.
Best results are achieved if you have a series of deep tissue massages in a row eg one every week or two for 3 sessions so that your massage therapist can get to the deep layers of muscle after your first session releases the superficial muscle tension. Deep tissue massage can also be liberating to release old emotional blockages that we hold in our muscles eg anger/ frustration held in tight jaw muscles.
30 minutes $60 : 45 minutes $75 : 60 minutes $90 : 90 minutes $125

Nutrition - Easy to follow diet advice for everyday people
Most of us like to think that our diet is fairly healthy apart from a few drinks on the weekend or a few junk foods now and then. Then a new trend appears : low fat, low carb, low G.I, high protein, gluten free - leaving us confused as to what is a healthy diet?
Learn which foods best suit your body type
Seeing a Nutritionist will help you eliminate the fads and learn which foods best suit your body.
The simplest change in diet can make a huge difference to your health. For example, many people with bloated belly's feel better when they switch from eating normal bread to eating a yeast free sourdough bread. They didn't need to give up bread, just change the type of bread they eat and the bloating disappears.
There are many simple things you can incorporate into your diet to help boost your energy and wellbeing. Food is an enjoyable part of our daily lives and choosing to eat well is the single best health insurance you could ever take out.
We have some of the most practical Nutritionists Brisbane has to offer. You'll receive easy to achieve take home ideas to improve your health and wellbeing.
Recipes and Good Food Ideas
We'll give you yummy recipes, food plans and easy to follow dietary advice to help good nutrition become part of your daily life. All suggestions are quick and easy to fit in with lifestyle.
