Increasingly, massage is seen as a viable way to treat and address pain throughout the body. Massage works, and it works extremely well. Studies have shown that massage can help reduce stress hormones in the body, which leads to an overall peacefulness as well as less inflammation. We offer several types of massage in our Brisbane Natural Therapies Clinic. Our most popular massage treatments include Remedial Massage, Sports Massage, Full Body Massage and Pregnancy Massage.

The reason that massage is so good at reducing inflammation throughout the body is that it releases stress hormones. This, in turn, causes inflammation to decrease. Since massage can reduce stress hormones and consequently reduce inflammation, massage can treat a wide range of conditions and disorders.
Inflammation is present in diseases and, if tissues or areas are inflamed for prolonged periods of time, issues like tumours can result. Massage can be used to help manage pain, including chronic pain. It acts as a powerful preventive measure and can be invaluable for reducing stress levels.
