What Makes Body Freedom Massage Different?
Body Freedom Urban Spa & Clinic is a bit different to the majority of spas and clinics. We have personally been influenced and understand the benefits of mindfulness and relaxation in every massage.
We begin every treatments with an opening ritual that has been developed by us to help you sink into a deeper state of relaxation. This ritual has elements of meditation, breathing exercise and energy work. After the opening ritual, we perform the treatment tailored for you after discussion in the consultation and client form. The more relaxed you are during the massage, the better the outcome, especially for remedial and deep tissue work. We find muscles, tendons and ligaments are more responsive when relaxed (and hydrated as well). This is one of the reasons why our therapists do not talk during a treatment (unless necessary for therapeutic reasons). At the conclusion of the massage, we perform a closing ritual to help you slowly become aware again.
What Massage Do I Choose?
We offer a stable of massage styles to suit your requirements. If you are needing therapeutic work please choose deep tissue or remedial massage. If you wish to claim on your private health funds, please choose a remedial massage. At the beginning of the treatment, your therapist will discuss any areas of concern and what areas you would like to include in the time of the treatment. So if you want 90 minutes of foot massage, that is possible. Or my favourite is a remedial massage on my upper back and neck with the last 15 mins with relaxation massage.

Can I Claim My Remedial Massage on Private Health Funds?
Yes you can. However we do not guarantee that you will be able to claim. Every plan is different and you need to have extras including Remedial Massage. Sometimes Health Funds change their policies and we are the last to know. We process 99.9% of funds except NIB as we have had issues with them over many years and have excluded them from our offer.
As we do take payment on booking, which is refundable if cancelled outside of 24 hours), Health Funds can still be claimed on the day through HICAPS and we refund your credit card the amount of the deposit that is covered by the Health Fund claim. For more information on Health Funds please visit our Health Fund Page.
What are Add Ons?
You can create a spa package out of your chosen style of massage by adding on “Add On” treatments. These are small spa treatments from 15 minutes that range from a dry body brush to exfoliate the skin and create lymphatic flow before the massage to a foot pamper of a foot scrub, massage with hot towels. Look at the options recommended next to the treatment.
