Massage and Myotherapy
Massage is a natural therapy involving pressure and manipulation of the body’s muscular system. A Massage Therapist uses certain techniques, such as effleurage and kneading, as well as heat and stretching, to work the muscles and release tension within the body.
Book a consultation with our qualified massage therapists at Pinnacle Health Group, for a health treatment that comprises an integral part of the healing process.
Myotherapists primarily use Massage as their main tool. However, they can also apply a wide range of other techniques such as Dry Needling, Acupuncture and Joint Release amongst others.

What are the benefits of a massage?
Many people associate massages with relaxation. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg as to what a massage can do for you, and it would be more useful to view massage as an effective treatment to reduce stress, tension and pain in your muscles. This has important follow-on effects on supporting your immune system and building up your body’s ability to prevent injuries.
Once you have first consulted with your massage therapist, you can begin to explore what you can get out of your massage treatment. A massage can:
- Improve blood circulation
- Clear waste products from your body
- Relieve cramps, spasms or pain
- Aid in recovery from injury
- Reduce anxiety and stress
- Promote relaxation
- Enhance general well being
We can tailor the length of your session to your needs. We offer thirty-, forty five- or sixty-minute sessions and, in some cases, ninety-minute sessions in Melbourne. We recommend that you book a forty five-minute session as your initial appointment if you are unsure of your needs. This will allow time to discuss the treatment aims and medical history with the massage therapist.
