Queen Street Physio (also known as Brisbane City Massage) offers quality therapeutic remedial, sports and deep tissue massage therapies to relieve pain and promote healing of damaged tendons and muscles.

Our Massage Therapists
All of our Massage Therapists have Diplomas in Remedial Massage Therapy which means that you receive high quality, therapeutic massages tailored to your individual needs.
Our Massage Therapists are also health fund approved so their services are claimable where remedial massage is included in your private health fund package.
While we offer a range of types of massages, we may combine different techniques depending on your needs. Treatment requires you to be unclothed and your privacy is protected during your treatment.
The degree of touch and pressure may vary depending on your sensitivity to the massage. For example, to relieve trigger points (knots of muscle tension), deep pressure is often required to loosen the knots, increase blood flow and relieve pain.
Brisbane City Massage therapists use the most up to date massage techniques and work alongside trained exercise scientists and physiotherapists within the clinic. Our therapists also attend regular professional development courses to stay ahead of the field and to provide you with the latest treatment techniques and advice.
Can anyone receive therapeutic massage treatment?
Massage is a positive healing modality. However, there are certain conditions that are not suited to therapeutic massage techniques.
Conditions not suited to therapeutic massage include advanced heart conditions, high blood pressure, cancer if it may cause the cancer to spread further, where the tissue or skin is fragile, people who suffer from blood clots or deep vein thrombosis, people with skin diseases, open sores or skin infections, unhealed fractures or dislocations or osteoporosis.
