Massage Therapy for Stress Relief in Brisbane and Toowoomba
It is common in life today to have a high tolerance for pain, agitation and irritation, which have become part of our everyday life. It is the extremely high and constant levels of stress that have become the normal way of operating for most of us and we are not even fully aware of it. As a result, we just put up with the stress even though it is affecting us, not just on a physical and emotional level, but through our minds. We experience stress-caused mental distress, agitation and depression, which become the prevailing condition affecting our health and happiness.
Our Brisbane massage therapists can help: massage therapy is now recognised for its benefits to health and is an accepted health service with doctors, Medicare and health insurers. Seeing a professional massage therapist is no longer seen as a self-indulgent activity, but a part of healthy lifestyle. Massage therapy has become vital to healthy living and a necessary form of therapy to relief pain, rehabilitate physical trauma and heal sporting injuries. Massage therapy can also assist with stress reduction, calming of the nerves and digestive balance. There are many different types of massage that can be applied to different levels of comfort and awareness.
How Massage Therapy Can Improve Your Well-Being
A professional health massage brings comfort, freedom from pain and a greater calmness to the mind. The type of massage needed for your individual needs is reflected in the therapist’s skill, sensitivity and understanding of the client’s needs. Clare Nott, operator and owner of Natural Health Therapy has been practising complementary health therapies for over 45 years and continues to grow her knowledge base, keeping up to date in with dealing with the current pressures we experience.
The practice of massage therapy encompasses many different techniques and different levels of soft tissue work. Most massage therapists will use their hands, fingers, forearms and elbows throughout the treatment in a calm, soothing and safe environment. There are both seated and reclining massage treatments to suit your individual needs.

What to Expect on Your Message Therapy Appointment?
During a massage, you will normally lay on a table in a comfortable position and covered with towels or a sheet. You will need the areas which require work to be free of clothing and accessories. A combination of specially selected oils is applied to specific areas of the body to alleviate the symptoms. The focus is to work on the source of pain, or where your old past memory is stored. The massage therapist will often apply gentle but firm pressure to specific points and do repetitive energy work in the areas required.
By visiting a massage therapist regularly, you can help stimulate and create change in the hormonal communication of signals going to and from the brain. Paired with reflexology, massage therapy helps balance the functions of the endocrine and nervous system to respiratory organs, improving blood pressure and digestive function alongside the elimination of toxins.
Lymphatic Massage Treatments
Another type of massage is a lymphatic massage where we use essential oils that support a greater clearing of toxic build-up in the muscles, nerves and lymph system. As part of your treatment, Natural Health Therapy will make recommendations for hydration as well as slight changes in your diet to support the continued elimination of toxins after your massage.
Our Massage Therapy Approach
Natural Health Therapy uses the practice of gentle massage with firm pressure, placed onto various acupressure points. We use this style of massage in conjunction with reflexology techniques. No Deep Tissue is done. The old age of “no pain no gain” mindset is no longer accepted as beneficial to good health and wellbeing. The deep tissues are where the mind reacts to the experience of the muscles and only feeds pain to the source where an old stored perception or belief from the past is held. This old concept is usually associated with the subconscious acceptance that life is painful, or love is painful... Love is pain. Massage is recognised as a safe therapy where the contraindications are recognised and adhered to.Receiving a massage from our therapists at our Brisbane clinics leaves you feeling clear and light with a deep calmness after having been nurtured at the deepest levels. Be sure to keep well hydrated after your massage session as you will continue eliminating the toxins for the next 4 to 6 hours.
