Five Benefits of Massage in the Winter

Massage in winter

For most of us, winter means hot drinks, extra layers of clothing, more hours spent indoors and less physical activity.
The good news is that a Remedial Massage can be a great tool to help you through the winter season!

The benefits of massage therapy during winter should not be overlooked, and may be exactly what you need to make it through to spring:

  1. Boost Your Immune System

Winter means colds & the flu spread like wildfire but massage can help your body fight these by boosting your immune system. This is through increasing the lymph flow which is loaded with lots of white blood cells which then go and fight infections around the body.

  1. Helps Dry Skin

As the humidity drops in winter the cold, dry air makes the water in your skin evaporate quicker, making your skin drier. The oils and lotions used in massage contain lots of vitamins to nourish & hydrate your skin – making you feel better on the inside & out!

  1. Improve Your Circulation

Your circulation may need a little help if your hands and feet are always chilly or if you’re having some aches and pains in the colder weather. Regular massage can help by enhancing blood flow and body warmth, which in turn increases the flow of oxygen around the body.

  1. Say Bye To Winter Blues

Massage encourages positive changes in the endocrine system where hormones are created. These changes decrease cortisol levels (a stress-related hormone) & increase oxytocin levels (the happy hormone) leading to the release of serotonin and endorphins, relieving the stress and enhancing your mood. Bye, bye winter blues!

  1. De-Stress

Waking up when it is dark and getting home from work when it is also dark can add extra stress into our lives. Some time out for a massage can really help boost your well-being & help to reset the balance in your life by aiding the release of stress.  It will also help to improve your sleep to give you more energy during the busy winter months.

Sports & Spinal have you covered this winter!

About Us

About Sports & Spinal:

With locations throughout the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast, you are in good hands with Sports and Spinal Physio.

From humble beginnings in a small office in Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore, with just one Physiotherapist, the Maroochydore Sports and Spinal Physio Practice has grown from it’s original office to now include 8 locations on the Sunshine Coast, with practices at:

  • Maroochydore
  • Buderim
  • Kawana
  • Nambour
  • Coolum Beach
  • Caloundra
  • Sippy Downs
  • Landsborough

And now Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy have established their services in Brisbane and Gold Coast including:

  • Broadbeach (new location)
  • Chermside
  • Woolloongabba
  • North Lakes
  • Redcliffe
  • Robina
  • Springfield (new location)
  • Broadbeach (new location)

Simon Burley began the original Maroochydore practice in 1992 and is now joined by Practice Partners Sean Campbell, Andrew Duff and Danielle Keogh with Associate Partners Louise Meek in Coolum, Mike Davis in Chermside, Sophie Stewart in Nambour, Laura Perry Maroochydore, Dion Wallace in Kawana, Nathan Craig in Woolloongabba, Bethany Butler in Sippy Downs and Siliva Tufuga in North Lakes.

Today Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Centres employ over 100 staff, including professional Physiotherapists, Dietitians, Podiatrists, Exercise Physiologists and Remedial Massage Therapists as well as an outstanding Admin team.

Simon feels the key to its success has been the high professionalism of the staff combined with the friendly family atmosphere.

“Many of our physios and staff have been with us over 20 years and our families have grown up together” says Simon. Heidi Wills has been in the office from the beginning (straight from high school at Immanuel College) and physios Briony McSwan & Fiona Rogers have been with us between 17 and 21 years. Many staff for 10+ years.

“Our senior staff have all developed expertise in their area of interest, to create their own specialised programs unique to our patients.”

Our point of difference from other practices is that our senior staff have all developed expertise in their area of interest, doing postgraduate studies to enhance their knowledge and skills. This ensures that you receive the most up-to-date evidence and experienced based care. In a small practice you have to be a “jack of all trades” but in larger clinics, we can specialise and become experts in certain conditions. Our staff will book you with an expert every time.

Pilates Classes

After a class? We have lots on offer!

Click the titles below to find out more about our exceptional Class options Sports & Spinal have on offer across our clinics:

What are Core Strength & Mobility (CSM) Classes and how do they incorporate Pilates?

With an emphasis on core conditioning, breathing and body awareness, our CSM classes are a safe and highly effective way to stretch, strengthen and streamline your body without building bulk or stressing your joints.

CSM classes utilise a variety of exercises that incorporate balance, power, strength and stability. The classes are inspired by Clinical Pilates movements and equipment, utilising levers and resistance to promote correct muscular activation patterns, postural awareness and core strength.

Performed on a mat or with specialised equipment, our CSM classes are a fitness regime for life. The perfect complement to cardiovascular exercise, sport, rehab and life, these classes will leave you looking toned, feeling revitalised and moving with ease.

Sports & Spinal’s CSM classes are currently held at the CoolumMaroochydoreBuderimKawanaSippy DownsNambour, North LakesGabba, Chermside and Robina clinics. Our classes are run by both Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists with Clinical Pilates Experience. Clinical Pilates (also called Studio Pilates) refers to one-on-one Pilates that is often used for injury rehabilitation, used in conjunction with physiotherapy. Sports & Spinal offers both and can cater to your exact needs.

Benefits of our CSM Classes

Toning & Weight Loss

CSM classes are perfect for toning and reshaping the body. It works on creating long, lean muscles, toning all of those hard to target areas such as the abdominals, inner thighs, buttocks, back of thighs, sides and backs of the arms. For toning, these classes are best performed 3 to 5 times a week through a combination of studio sessions, mat classes and home exercises.

Increased Flexibility

Pilates exercises are performed through a wide range of movements and work on lengthening the muscles at the same time as strengthening them. To increase flexibility, stretching exercises need to be performed daily.

Improved Posture

The Clinical Pilates exercises used in our CSM classes focus on strengthening the weakened postural muscles and stretching the tight muscles that pull the body into these poor postures. Studio sessions are the best way to improve posture as our physiotherapists can develop a program to target your specific postural problems. Pilates can also be used for back pain as it relaxes and strengthens the muscles, easing the discomfort.

Injury Rehab & Prevention

Our CSM classes use Clinical Pilates techniques which are fantastic for injury rehabilitation and prevention as it works on core stability, posture, flexibility, and correcting muscle imbalances and weaknesses via specific strengthening. It can be used for arthritis, neck pain, back pain and various injuries.

Enhanced Athletic Performance

Pilates is the secret tool that many high level and recreational athletes use to enhance their performance, decrease the risk of injuries and provide much-needed cross training.

Blooming Bellies to Active Mums are two classes designed for your specific needs during the antenatal and postnatal period. The changes your body undergoes during the child bearing years require specific, targeted exercises by trained professionals to ensure that you safely remain strong and active.
Classes will have a large focus on core and pelvic floor muscle activation and strength through a range of functional lifts and movements, education and stretching.
These classes are the perfect transition back to pre-pregnancy fitness and sports, or future physical aspirations. Babies are more than welcome at our post natal sessions.

The best way to keep your baby healthy is to keep yourself healthy! 

Joining the classes

You will need to attend for a screening assessment with one of our women’s health physiotherapists prior to commencing classes to ensure it is safe for you to start and to ensure that you gain the most from the classes by developing individualised programs and setting personal goals.

Antenatally this can be done anytime after 12 weeks. Postnatally, this will be done after your 6 week checkup with your obstetrician.

When & Where?

The classes are held in our Sippy DownsChermside Sports & Spinal Clinics. Please contact your local clinic for more information. You can view the class timetable here.

Hydrotherapy Sports & Spinal Header

What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is a specific therapist supervised treatment and exercise program in a heated pool (32°C).

What is Hydrotherapy beneficial for?

  • Post surgery (eg. total knee replacement)
  • Assisting with injury rehabilitation
  • Arthritis
  • Exercising sore and painful joints
  • General fitness/balance
  • Fracture recovery

The heated water encourages stiff muscles and joints to relax, whilst the buoyancy takes the load off the weight bearing joints allowing them to be exercised painlessly.

Improve strength and flexibility

Hydrotherapy is often used to improve strength and flexibility before beginning a gym or home based program. It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Being at a constant safe depth it is not necessary to be a competent swimmer in order to benefit. Our therapists run several classes every week at the Cotton Tree, Buderim, Nambour, Kawana and Coolum pools. Our group classes provide a safe, professional and most of all enjoyable environment! Classes have generally no more than 10-12 patients per class, classes are kept small to ensure the physiotherapist can concentrate on each patient’s program.  Individual hydrotherapy sessions are also available by request.

How do I book in?

All patients are required to have an initial assessment with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist before beginning any of our classes. This is to familiarise patients with any equipment, positions, exercises and identify and injuries/restrictions we need to be aware of prior to attending a class.
A doctor’s referral is not required (unless you are claiming through Workcover or Veteran’s Affairs), but we do recommend that you get your doctor’s clearance to begin physical activity especially if you are recovering from an injury. We liaise closely with your medical practitioner to ensure the best results.
