Brisbane Massage Reviews for Makira

I went to Knead for the first time today for a remedial massage. When I walked in Makira had already read my online medical history, she asked a series of follow up questions then got stuck into the massage. I had the 60 minutes and felt wonderful afterwards. Definitely going back.

Paul McCarron

Massage Therapist Brisbane What are treatments like with Makira?

With experience as both a professional dancer and a massage therapist – I have unique insights into the needs of high-performance athletes. I specialize in providing expert sports massage and have extensive experience working with Australian Rules athletes in Brisbane. In addition to addressing tension and pain, my broader remedial massage style incorporates techniques such as muscle release, dry needling, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretching, and joint mobilisation. Remedial Massage assessment techniques efficiently identify the root cause of pain and provide a range of methods to increase mobility and reduce pain.

What do I love about being a remedial massage therapist?

My background in dance has made me hyper-aware of how my body moves, and I am amazed by how much freedom and relief can be restored through massage. I have found therapeutic touch to be beneficial both mentally and physically, and I love the power that massage can have. As a remedial massage therapist, I find it rewarding to become part of someone’s overall support system.
