Benefits of Our Physio Massage Services

Increased Circulation

Massage therapy can increase circulation. It increases oxygen delivery to muscles cells, and reduces swelling. It may be beneficial in the treatment of certain inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.

Muscle Tension

This form of therapy can reduce muscle tension and joint compression. It also increases joint mobility and range of motion. This can lead to less pain and better function.

Physio Dandenong Exercises


Massaging therapy can induce relaxation, which reduces heart rate and breathing rates, lowers blood pressure, and decreases stress-related symptoms.

Joint Stiffness

Massages can reduce stiffness in the joints and muscles, thereby decreasing muscle tension, and passive movements to stretch connective tissue around joints. This will help improve your performance. To prevent injury from happening, massage lengthens muscles and tendon units.

Post-Training Massage

The best time to get a post-event massage is within the first few days after your training or fitness exercise. It can be from 30 to 48 hours after your training session.
The duration of such therapies can range from a few minutes to up to twenty minutes.

A post-event therapy session reduces soreness and cramping, and allows for a quicker return to training following your event.

Professional sports teams often use the services of professional massage therapists to aid in their athletic preparation and recovery.

Why Choose Our Service

We are very conscious about serving our patients and believe on providing best medical services.


Relaxation massages are great for relaxing after a long week of work or just to pamper yourself.

You can choose to have the treatment done at your preferred pressure. The massage consists of gentle manipulations and kneading, as well as flowing strokes.

This treatment is painless and can help you relax your muscles as well as your mind.


A remedial massage might be right for you if you suffer from chronic muscle tension, or severe pain.

The remedial massage therapist will evaluate your condition and determine what is causing it.

The therapist will perform a series of tests to determine which muscles are causing you pain and then tailor the treatment to your needs. Although the treatment may require some deep tissue work, it is worth it.

In that it also relieves pain, discomfort, and promotes healing, remedial massage is similar to massage therapy. Massage therapy, like remedial massage can vary in depth depending on what the client needs.

A deep, therapeutic massage called neuromuscular is used to relieve trigger points and improve blood flow.

Soft-Tissue Injuries and Massages

One of the most popular types of massage is deep tissue therapy. This involves using firm pressure, fingers, thumbs, elbows, and thumbs to massage deeply into the tissues.

Deep, slow strokes combined with friction allow for deeper muscle layers and fascia to be reached. This helps in the relief of chronic muscle tension. The connective tissue surrounding muscles is called fascia.

The purpose of massage therapists is to reach and massage the muscles beneath the skin by working perpendicularly along the length of the person's superficial muscle fibers. It is used to treat chronic pains and tightened muscles. This massage can be used in conjunction with other therapies such as the shoulder physiotherapy Melbourne.

Basic Massage Therapies

There are many massage styles that can be used to create basic therapeutic massage techniques. You will be able to tailor the massage technique that you receive from your massage therapist according to your specific needs.

For individualised guidance, call Physio Dandenong if you’re unsure which massage is right for you.

Longitudinal Glide

Longitudinal glide is an effective and traditional massage technique that works in the direction blood flows.

This helps to reduce swelling and fluid loss from injury sites. It also helps relax tight muscles.

Kneading Methods

There are many ways to knead and the methods used for each method can be described. Palm kneading or thumb kneading can be used.

The purpose of the massage will dictate the pressure that is used. As the load is not applied in a continuous rhythm, the rate and pace of the movements are important.

Therapies Used By Our Physio Experts

Our team are versed in a variety of effective techniques…

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is an manual method to stretch the fascia and balance the body. The fascia is the connective tissue that covers and links the body's muscles, organs and skeletal system.
It can be found between your skin and the muscle structure and beneath the skin. Poor posture, stress, trauma and injuries can all cause fascia restrictions. Myofascial release aims to remove fascia restrictions and to restore tissue.

Trigger point therapy

Trigger point therapy, a type of bodywork that uses pressure on tender muscles to alleviate pain or dysfunction in the other areas of the body to treat it, is called trigger point therapy.
These trigger points can be active areas of muscular hyperactivity that often overlap with acupuncture point. Common trigger points can also be called muscular "knots" by the majority of people. These trigger points can be relieved by massage.

Transverse friction

Transverse friction refers to transverse connective tissues therapy that is applied by fingers. In transverse frictions, an oscillating force is applied in the opposite direction to the tissue fibers.
This is a technique that's used to reduce thickened scar tissue and pain caused by ligament or tendon injuries. Lesions that are not reduced can cause more irritation, and may degenerate faster than necessary.

Rhythmic Compression

To create hyperemia deep within the muscles and to soften tissues, rhythmic compression is used. This may be used as a warm up for deeper, more targeted massage.
Sports massage utilises compression massage.

Cross-fibre friction

Cross-fibre friction creates a stretching effect and broadening effect.

This can reduce adhesions, and build reliable, flexible repairs during healing.

PNF Stretching

The PNF Stretches combine isometrics and passive stretching. Your muscle will be alternately contracted and stretched passively.
This method works by targeting nerve receptors to increase muscle length. Learn more about PNF stretching.
