For those registered with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), prioritising wellness and finding a therapeutic option can be difficult. Falling within the Allied Health sector, Massage & Float are a NDIS registered provider. Our services on offer are aimed to improve cardiovascular health, reduce stress levels and reduce sleep deprivation. Our goal is to help NDIS participants to live as independently and pain free as possible.

Here at Massage & Float, we offer a combination of massage and float tank therapy to restore, heal and enhance wellbeing, ensuring each session is tailored to meet specific needs, such as physical, mental and emotional support.

Float tank therapy, otherwise known as sensory deprivation therapy, involves floating in a specially designed, open style tank filled with body temperature water and magnesium. This creates a weightless and calming environment to:

  • Alleviate chronic pain, from conditions such as, but not limited to, arthritis or fibromyalgia. The weightlessness of the water reduces the pressure on the joints, promoting relaxation and reducing discomfort.
  • Reduce sensory stimulation with the stimulus-free environment, float tank therapy has a calm and soothing effect.
  • Promote mental clarity and reduce stress by promoting relaxation, to help manage anxiety and depression. The controlled environment of a float tank offers respite for mental clarity, focus and emotional wellbeing.

Massage therapy can positively impact NDIS participants in:

  • Pain management
  • Improving mobility and flexibility
  • Stress reduction and relaxation
  • Body awareness and self-care
