Our Brisbane massage therapists do much more than just massage. They are experts in diagnosing the underlying cause of your pain and addressing it using advanced massage techniques that are far more effective than massage alone.
Do you have pain or discomfort? Need help recovering from sports or injuries? Our Massage Therapists help patients overcome most types of body pain and discomfort. Their treatments involve a combination of massage and other techniques to treat the cause of pain and discomfort where it is needed the most. This means your treatment is targeted so that you can get to the bottom of your issue for long lasting relief.
We have two amazing massage therapists at Shift Brisbane.

Remedial Massage can help with a wide range of complaints.
Remedial massage and myotherapy massage is recommended for basic complaints like sore muscles or achiness but really shines when the issue is chronic, injury related or sports related. Shift at Brisbane's Massage Therapists assess the cause of pain or dysfunction and are able to refer you on when it is needed.
Some of the techniques that may be used during your treatment are:
- Muscle and joint testing
- Mobility and range testing
- Specific massage techniques
- Myofascial release
- Soft tissue work
- Deep tissue massage
- Lymphatic drainage massage (not myotherapy)
- Reflexology (not myotherapy)
- Trigger point release
- Joint mobilisations (not remedial massage)
- Strapping (not remedial massage)
- Dry Needling
During your initial remedial massage or myotherapy massage appointment, you’ll be assessed by your practitioner. Your therapist will also ask you specific questions about your condition to determine what the best treatment will be for you. You’ll also receive an exercise and rehabilitation program if needed to help get you feeling good as soon as possible.

When your body has been out of sorts for a while, there can be a little tension as we try to release it. Sometimes deep fascia work and specific releases may be uncomfortable momentarily. Your therapist will always check with you throughout the treatment to make sure any discomfort is manageable.
Our therapists are trained in advanced techniques that use the minimum amount of pressure to exert the maximum amount of results.
At Shift we only employ registered, qualified massage therapists that have a minimum of 5 years experience. The term ‘massage therapist’ can be used quite loosely, many therapists will practice after a 6 month course.
Our therapists have extensive training in the physiology of the human body and the experience to find the root cause of the issue.
This means you’ll need less treatments and will be on a maintenance program sooner than you would with remedial massage alone.
