Body Remedy - Clinical Remedial Massage Therapy
knot1Clinical remedial massage therapy is a treatment modality that manipulates the soft tissues of the body for a specific therapeutic effect, rather than a general therapeutic effect. It uses relevant techniques and movements according to the client’s needs and response. This leads to the healing process, which begins at the cellular level aiding soft tissues in repairing, restoring functional integrity and adapting back to health.

Actively Proactive - Sports Massage
Whether you’re a ‘weekend warrior” or professional athlete, this pre-emptive muscle therapy enhances performance, assists in injury prevention, increases flexibility, and reduces recovery time. It may be given pre-event, post-event, or for ongoing maintenance.

Jaw Release
A highly effective treatment applied inside the mouth to release the tissue and muscles of the jaw and face, reducing tension that can lead to temporomandibular jaw disorder, teeth grinding, and related headaches. This therapy is usually accompanied by treatment of the neck and shoulders.

Functional Movement Screen
knot4Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

Your therapist will conduct the screening process,  generate a report, and identify a set of corrective exercises that effectively restore movement and strength. This treatment may also involve an element of remedial therapy to help restore mobility.

FMS Programs are designed to address:

  • Individuals designing an exercise program to improve movement
  • Individuals playing a specific sport and looking to improve performance
  • Chronic musculoskeletal complaints
  • Overuse injuries
  • Recurrent strains and sprains

Cancellation Policy
In our commitment to provide a unique and outstanding massage experience to all of our clients, and out of consideration for our therapists time, we have the following policies:
Late/Missed Appointments
Please arrive for your appointment 5 minutes prior to your allocated time. This allows you the time to fill out the appropriate client form, and prepare for the service. Time for your appointment has been allocated for you. Late arrival may result in a shortened session time in order that we can accommodate appointments following you. Full payment for your session will be required.
Late or missed appointments exclude others from receiving treatment and inconvenience both the therapists and other waiting clients.
If a client cannot keep an appointment with us, it is expected that notice is given as soon as possible by calling the practice and leaving a message if after hours. Failure to give notice will result in a charge for your session unless there are extenuating circumstances. If less than 6 hours notice is given, the full consultation fee will apply. However, provision of another appointment within 48 hours at no charge, but at our convenience, will be made in an attempt to provide continuation of treatment. If the client does not accept our offer of an alternative appointment, payment in full is expected.
No refunds will be given for deposits paid, cancellations with less than 6 hours notice, or gift certificates purchased. The owner(s) reserve the right to make the final decision on this policy.
Additional (prepayments and securing appointment times)
Any service beyond 1.5 hours or back-to-back bookings will require a credit card or deposit to secure your appointment.
Inappropriate Conduct The client understands that any illicit, sexual or aggressive remarks, advances or gestures will not be tolerated and will result in the immediate termination of the session, and the client will be liable for full payment of the scheduled appointment. These policies have been adopted to ensure that the professionalism and ethics of our clinic are respected, and to ensure your scheduled service is a stress-free and relaxing experience.
If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us on 03 5442 3932

What our

customers are saying

  • “Circus Oz were performing in Cairns and I contacted The Massage Shack at short notice to see if they were available to treat some of our performers on their days off. As you can imagine, we require a pretty decent remedial sports massage to get into all the niggles and injuries acrobats sustain, and not only did they go out of their way to bring their services to us, their massage was incredible and will be talked about for years to come. Those hands, elbows, knees – whatever they use – are magic. And their knowledge of sporting injuries is second to none. Thanks guys, next time we’re gonna kidnap you and take you on tour with us. Circus Oz highly recommends The Massage Shack.”

    Mel Fyfe, Circus Oz Tour Manager
  • “I work out regularly to keep fit but suffer from a number of old injuries and occasionally incur new ones. Although based in London, I travel extensively around the world and am constantly in search of good massage therapists to treat my ailing muscles. When I come to North Queensland – I seek out Ash for an appointment, as he has provided the most effective treatment I have had. I feel immediately better, and it is a pleasure to receive treatment from someone who is excellent at what he does, courteous and charming. Forget London, Paris, New York or L.A., if you need to see a really great remedial therapist, head for The Massage Shack..really!

    Glenn Scott Wright, London
  • “As a professional Artist, parts of my body get overused, especially my arms, shoulders and lower back. Having just completed a successful art show, I needed treatment after the many months of preparation for my show. I was gifted 4 sessions at the massage shack, and it was the best present I have received! Arriving for my first appointment, I was welcomed and felt immediately relaxed and in good hands with Ash. I knew he was a professional when he took a thorough history of all my symptoms. What impressed me most, was the fact he discussed my actual painting technique and its impact on my posture. Over the course of the sessions, I felt relief from my injuries and my body improving. Ash provided me with preventative strategies and I have to say that I looked forward to the treatment. I can’t explain the sensation of being ‘worked on’ but it was brilliant. The techniques Ash implemented on my arms, shoulder, neck, back and head produced enormous benefit. I highly recommend The Massage Shack to anyone who is in need of alleviation of pain, or relaxation for a fatigued, overworked or aching body!”

Lactic acid and massage

Ever feel the “burn” during or after a BIG training session? There is an age old misconception that lactic acid  has been the culprit and that massage therapy can help relieve sore muscles and aid exercise recovery by removing lactic acid from the muscles after exercise. Although a good massage can aid in recovery by either biological, psychological, or social means, the […]
