Remedial (Deep Tissue) Massage Cairns

Remedial massage Cairns is perfect for people with knots and niggles, whether that is from sitting at a desk all week, pounding the pavement and pathways or smashing it out at the gym or on the court. Also called deep tissue massage, our remedial massage Cairns services target the painful points and release the tension, giving you freedom of movement.

Knots and Niggles Massage do not subscribe to the ‘no pain, no gain’ philosophy. Lizzie firmly believes in massage as a form of healing and recovery. That’s why she provides a complimentary full body assessment, prior to your remedial massage Cairns booking. During this process, she will try to identify any key trigger points, which might be causing pain and then deliver a remedial massage targeted to your needs.

Many people refer to remedial massage as deep tissue massage and that name comes with a lot of connotations and misconceptions, including hour long sessions which are to be endured rather than enjoyed.

At Knots and Niggles Massage we specialise in functional massage, which produces effective results, without the pain. Our massage is targeted to your body and does not ever involve crushing out your muscles and making you feel like you’ve been through the ringer.

We provide myofascial treatment, identifying and working on key trigger points (muscle knots) to relive pain and provide greater freedom of movement.

Our oil choice is unrefined organic coconut, which can be combined with essential oils on demand.


Remedial massage is very therapeutic and can relieve areas of chronic muscle tightness, especially around the back, shoulders and neck.

We always start with a full body assessment, which is complimentary and in addition to your booked treatment time. By talking to you and checking your range of movement, we can identify the specific pressure points (trigger points) which will provide the relief you are looking for.

We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your booked appointment, to allow time for this to be completed before your massage.

Our clinic is centrally located at The Ground, 81-91 Scott Street, Cairns. For more information on our remedial massage Cairns treatments, call Lizzie at Knots and Niggles today on 0466 277 581.

I first saw Lizzie about a year ago now after reading the exceptional reviews and recommendations, and to say I was impressed was an understatement. Lizzie is a massage goddess! She can tell where I’m tight and muscles that need working on just by looking at me, and the difference I feel after massage/dry needling with her is incredible. I see her religiously every week now and there is no one else I trust more with my body, especially given my intense training regime and the importance of me being in top shape. She genuinely cares about her clients and is also one of the most loveliest people you will ever meet. I look forward to our sessions every week and could not recommend her higher. Would give 6 stars if I could!


I went and saw Lizzie because of scar and adhesion issues. She was very knowledgeable, and I felt at ease straight away. I felt so comfortable and relaxed! Finally, some blood flow and I had this warm belly feeling that was just amazing! Highly recommend seeing Lizzie.


After reading her 5 star reviews on Facebook I decided to book in for a remedial massage & glad to say it was the best massage I’ve ever had!!! I went to Lizzie with tight muscles & knots & she worked her magic & soothed my whole body. There were muscles in my body I didn’t even know I was having dramas with until after when I could actually move pain free! She is so down to earth & friendly too - Amazing!


Wow ... thank you sooo much for the amazing massage today Lizzy. You are one talented lady with special hands. Cannot recommend Lizzy enough. Feeling great and will be even better tomorrow and the next day. So relaxing and very professional. Lovely studio and nice environment.


It takes a lot for my fiance Matt to say that he had a really good massage, he's pretty hard to impress...but that's what he came home and said to me after he went to see Lizzie! Highly recommend her, she's a wonderful person inside and out, she loves what she does and it shows. Thankyou! I now have a knot and niggle-free fiancé.


Lizzie has been working on me for a few sessions now. She's amazing! Professional, witty, down to earth. With her additional skills with Dry Needling and Cupping I'm well and truly on the way to feeling like I did 4yrs ago pre injury. Highly recommend for your remedial massage cure.


I love Lizzy’s massages. She’s the one person I trust entirely to make me feel better and allow me to continue to massage every week. Thanks Lizzy for making me feel human.
