Have a read below as to why many elite organisations such as QLD Ballet believe Health Place are the very best.

1. Improves Recovery Time Between Exercise Sessions

Massage stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems, promoting the movement and removal of metabolic waste and toxins, such as lactic acid from the muscle by increasing blood flow and promoting circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to muscle groups and thus allowing for quicker recovery after any physical exertion.

2. Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion

Perhaps one of the most important, yet understated benefits of remedial massage and myotherapy is its ability to improve flexibility and range of motion. Through manipulation of muscles and other connective tissue, equipped with world class skills, our therapists use various techniques to release soft tissue allowing for greater improvement in flexibility.

3. Aids In Prevention of Injury

Enhancing muscle recovery and decreasing recovery time is vital in improving athletic performance for any athlete. A core component of remedial massage and myotherapy is promoting joint stabilisation and the stretch and strengthening of muscle groups preventing sporting injuries.

4. Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Massage has been proven to assist in decreasing cortisol levels in the body. A hormone produced when we experience stress or pain. By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, massage promotes an increase in serotonin and dopamine production, subsequently improving mood, relaxation and alleviation of pain.
