Fix your fascia, balance your body

Structural Integration Cairns services is now available at Knots and Niggles. Structural Integration is manual, mobility work which addresses the body’s fascia. It’s a form of massage which is designed to help align and balance your body, providing enhanced ease of movement and better posture. Other benefits of our Structural Integration Cairns services can include improved sleep, decreased stress and anxiety in your body, and an enhanced overall feeling of wellness.

Knots and Niggles strive to provide a comprehensive range of massage modalities, tailoring our services to meet your body’s specific needs and requirements. At the heart of all our work, is our desire to relieve muscular stress, aches and pains. You might not have known, that inside every body is a band of connective tissue, which surrounds muscles, organs, nerves and vessels. This tissue is called a fascia (more on this below) which is what we work on, during a Structural Integration service.

Structural Integration Cairns Services

Structural Integration concentrates on treating the fascia, rather than your muscles specifically, but it will help ease your knots and niggles. By applying strategic pressure to various points of your body’s fascia, we can help to lengthen it, which in turn enables your muscles to move more freely. Our Structural Integration Cairns services are suitable for patients of all ages and are provided in our private rooms.


Structural Integration focuses on your fascia, which we will explain in more detail. Fascia is fibrous connective tissue which surrounds and supports muscles, nerves, organs and blood vessels. It’s very flexible and designed to enable freedom of movement, whilst protecting organs and supporting posture.

It’s similar to ligaments, but rather than surrounding bones, its primary purpose is to support muscles and more. Your fascia can become damaged, through sports injury, chronic stress, fatigue, advancing age and more.

When the fascia is not performing correctly, your muscles can become constricted, forming knots which can be painful. It can also comprise your posture and balance. So, treating the fascia with Structural Integration can be an important part of our Cairns massage services.


Our philosophy at Knots and Niggles is always to assist our clients enjoy pain free bodies, removing your knots and niggles with targeted massage services. We’re excited about the addition of the Structural Integration technique, to our already comprehensive range of massage modalities.

As with all our treatments, your Structural Integration Cairns appointment will commence with a full body assessment. This enables us to review your posture, freedom of movement (or lack thereof), ensuring our treatment addresses your individual needs.

The location and amount of pressure required, varies from client to client. As does the frequency and amount of sessions required, to deliver best results. For more information on our Structural Integration Cairns services, call Lizzie Knots and Niggles today on 0466 277 581.

WOW what a wonderful remedial massage with Juliana. She is absolutely brilliant. I am now going weekly to release my shoulders, neck and sciatica in the hips. Originally went for my very sore feet but now continuing for other issues I have. Juliana really knows the mechanics of the body.


Lizzie is a super star! Both knowledgeable and intuitive - Lizzie clearly knows her craft but also 'feels' what's needed in terms of problem areas and pressure required with confidence and precision. Get in to see her while she still has room in her Diary. You'll be glad you did!!


Lovely relaxing Lymphatic Drainage Massage from Salena this morning. I felt an improvement with my energy levels with the first hour after my massage. I look forward to benefiting from future massages.


Luke Bulian was absolutely brilliant! I highly recommend and am looking forward to my next massage.


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!


Very impressed with Luke! He listened to what I felt was wrong and then worked appropriately to loosen up my chest and shoulders. A couple of sessions and I feel great!


I have had a pregnancy massage with Lizzie and Salena, both were amazing. I highly recommend.


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!


I had a Sports Massage by Luke. I'm a cyclist and have all the tightness and pain that comes with that. He really hits the spots and I feel a lot looser. I will definitely be back.


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.


If you want a massage that fixes up your knots and niggles, you must go to Knots and Niggles! I always have a tight back due to the nature of my work and getting a massage here makes both my back and me feel so good. I can sit straight and get through the work week much easier. Very professional team and they make you feel very comfortable too.


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.


Excellent therapeutic treatment and a real focus on getting the most out of your session.


Had a great 1 hr massage with Salena! Feel so much better, will be back in future.


Don't let this perfectly accurate review of Lizzie's incredible knowledge and magical skills make your mind up on whether or not you want to book an appointment asap with her - Go and see and feel for yourself! Her skill to pin point where you're feeling pain throughout your body is ridiculously accurate. Stop wasting your money elsewhere and do yourself a tremendous favour and BOOK NOW with Lizzie. Lizzie is phenomenal! 5 Stars from me!!!


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.


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.


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.
