Brisbane Massage Reviews for Anna

I’ve been in a lot of pain for the last few days. When I decided to see someone here in Brisbane, whilst there for the weekend, I was able to book in to see Anna that day. She was a wonder and gave me lots of advice. 
Would highly recommend!


What are my treatments like?

Having a combination of Remedial, Pregnancy, Lymphatic and Balinese techniques allows me to create a treatment that is both effective in reducing or eliminating pain and deeply relaxing as well.

Pregnancy Massage – I can help with

  • Pregnancy related Lumbar and sacral pain
  • Aching legs and feet
  • Odema
  • Breathing restriction
  • Aching neck, shoulders and back
  • Anxiety & tension

Manual Lymphatic Drainage & Lymphatic Massage

  • Odema – after surgery such as liposuction, from prolonged sitting, poor diet,
  • Fatigue – especially after repeated colds, flus and infections,
  • Lupus, chronic fatigue, digestive issues
  • Lymphoedema – primary or secondary,
  • Node removal when drainage to another nodal area is required
  • Compression garments and bandaging for more complicated cases

Remedial Massage – I can help with

  • Assessing your posture to see if there is any restrictions in your movement, muscle pain, nerve pain
  • Assess your acute injury through a series of postural tests to determine where the pain occurred and what muscles or nerves are being affected

What is Balinese Massage?

Intuitive Balinese Massage combines a variety of classic whole body massage techniques and the practitioner’s ability to tap into their intuition and create a meditative state of relaxation and healing for their client. These techniques include long flowing strokes, deep tissue massage and stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Balinese Massage may be helpful in treating:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Depression
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Back or neck pain
  • High Blood Pressure

Benefits of massage:

  • Improves circulation
  • Stimulates the Lymphatic System
  • Reduces muscle tension
  • Improve skin tone
  • Increase joint flexibility and mobility
  • Heightened mental alertness
  • Reduce anxiety and Depression
  • Reduction of Stress hormones

Who would benefit from my treatments?

Anyone who wants some support throughout their pregnancy with a regular treatment, clients who suffer stress, anxiety, depression and need a treatment that combines both remedial and relaxation, and those suffering lymphatic conditions are my best clients. Also if you just need a good general deep tissue to work out those aches, pains and knots, I am your therapist!

What do I love about Massage?

I love how rewarding it feels to see a decrease in stress and tension that clients have been putting up with. I appreciate how massage can improve your mood and make movement in your body a lot easier, and as a career it is satisfying to know that I have helped someone enjoy their day and their life more.
