Sports Massage Cairns

Knots and Niggles Massage has always had a practical name and provides practical and functional massages, which has maintained our focus following the merger with Wellness Embodied. Sports massages are tailored to suit your needs and can assist with preparation for a big event, or assist with recovery. Sports massage doesn’t get any better. All treatments are claimable on Private health.


Sports massage Cairns is a great way to flush out lactic acid from your muscles and tissues and remove knots (and niggles). Sports massage can be very effective both pre and post a big match and/or event, but timing is critical.

Pre-event sports massage must be given no less than three (3) days prior to your event. Designed to enhance your bodies functionality and range of movement, it will assist peak performance when you need it most. Taken too close to the big day, it might adversely impact your tissue balance.

Post-event sports massage should be given within 24 hours of the event, to assist with the recovery process. It can be very beneficial in the healing process for muscle strains, by softening the tissue and preventing scar tissue formation. It also helps to align healing fibres with muscle fibres, for optimum results. Can even help prevent re-injury.


Knots and Niggles Massage by Wellness Embodied wants to help your body work at its very best, on the physical side of things. We combine massage and movement, to unlock tired and aching muscles.

If you have one muscle or body part that always seems to get sore, it might be because there are some alignment issues. Having regular massage can help ease pain, release those tight areas and get your body working, the way it should be.

All of our sports massage Cairns sessions start with a full body assessment. This enables us to target your treatment, to suit your needs. Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment, to allow time for this.

Our sports massage focuses on your limbs and muscles, rather than the head and torso. For more information on our Cairns sports massage treatments, call us today on (07) 4231 9777.
