Fizzio for Life provides services in Remedial Massage, Pregnancy and Infant massage.
Research has found that massage is “effective in managing subacute/chronic low back pain, delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), anxiety, stress and relaxation, and helps support the wellbeing of patients with chronic and/or terminal diseases such as cancer.” (1) As well as reducing stress and fatigue, remedial massage can help to relieve sore muscles and joints and also increase your range of motion and flexibility.
Appointment slots range from 30 minutes to an hour depending on your requirements. There is a discount available for pensioners on this service.
**Myotherapy and Remedial Massage Therapy are now covered by Medibank Private and most private health funds. Check with your fund if a rebate is applicable.
