About massage therapy...

Our talented Massage Therapists are dedicated to providing the right massage to suit your needs.
Whether you're looking to relieve stress, to increase your sports performance, or just to relax, the professionally trained and registered massage therapists at Foundation will cater for your therapeutic needs.

Massage therapy relaxes muscles, easing and soothing aches and pains. It rejuvenates and helps to restore balance to body making us better able to handle all that life throws our way.

How long are the massage therapist appointments?

Our appointments range from 30 minutes to 60 minutes, or longer on request.

Cost of a massage appointment:

  • 30 minutes for $45
  • 45 minutes for $60
  • 60 minutes for $80

Can I get ACC on massage therapist appointments?

Unfortunately massage is not an accredited modality with ACC so the full cost of the appointment is met by the patient. However, some private insurance companies will pay up to $400 per annum for therapeutic massage treatments.

What should I wear to the appointment?

It doesn't matter really as you will be asked to get changed to your underwear while the therapist is out of the room.

If you have concerns about this then you can be massaged through clothing, although it can be limiting.

What happens at the appointment?

Your massage therapist will take a full history and maybe perform some tests on you. You will then be advised as to the best treatment for you.

Please feel free to discuss your concerns or raise any questions you may have as massage is a very personal experience. You will be completely draped with towels, other than the area that we are treating.
