Welcome to HANDS from HEAVEN!
HANDS from HEAVEN is a Remedial Massage Clinic in the heart of Stafford, Brisbane 4053.
We have been open in Pateena Street for nearly 10 years now, and have solidly cemented ourselves into our community. Our Team has changed a bit over the years, but our commitment to our community has not, and with the support of our community we have been able to extend our availability to be a 7 Day Clinic. We open at 8am every day, and currently we close at 9pm on Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday, 7pm on Monday-Friday-Sunday, and 4pm on Saturday ...
Between the 4 of us, we total more than 140 hours of Available Treatment Time EVERY WEEK !
We have an Electronic and ONLINE Appointment Diary that operates in real-time, showing you what is available NOW. This allows you to log-in (through this website - using your email and a password) and view all available appointments so you can choose a time that suits you best … with no more backwards-and-forwards telephone-tag or email-tag.
Please remember that every Therapist that works here has nationally recognized and accredited qualifications, and is focused on providing quality treatments to achieve the outcome most important to you – our valued client!
Our philosophy on massage is that every physical body is different and has individual needs. What works well for one may not necessarily work so well for the next. We encourage open and clear communication between Client and Therapist during your massage to help us provide what you need today.
In clinic we like to promote an atmosphere that is professional but relaxed. Professional so that everyone understands that we are serious about our business and want to provide the best treatment possible to/for you, but relaxed enough to feel comfortable.
We are part of the community but most importantly we are here for our community, and this means we try very hard to be available when you need and/or want us. We are open 7 days every week from as early as 8am till as late as 7pm - and even 9pm on Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday... We are also available on most Public Holidays - with reduced hours of course, because we have families too. This all supports our focus to provide our services at times that give everyone an opportunity to come and experience quality Remedial Massage. A full description of our opening hours is available on the 'Contact Us' page of this website.
Our pricing structure is competitively affordable as well, and includes discounted rates for Pensioners, Seniors, Full-time Students, and anyone holding a current Centrelink Health-care or Pension Card. Of course, evidence of your concession (ie: the card) must be able to be produced on request.
We have Rewards Programs in place that provide reward to you (our clients) for your support and patronage. More details about these programs can be found on the 'Rewards Programs' page of this website. Essentially the Loyalty Reward gives you a $10 Discount for maintaining regular treatments, and the Referral Reward gives you a free massage for sending your family & friends our way. Check them out - it is surprisingly easy to save money while looking after yourself!
Further, all our therapists are current and financial members of appropriate Massage Associations which means you can claim a rebate for our treatments with your health fund – depending on your personal level of coverage. To make claiming easier for you as well, we are HICAPS capable. This means that if you belong to a health fund that includes Remedial Massage on their HICAPS schedule you can swipe your card here and claim electronically and immediately.
A brief History of HANDS from HEAVEN
My name is Tony and HANDS from HEAVEN is my Remedial Massage business. I used to work in an administrative position in the Public Service, but at 32 I decided to change careers and do something I wanted to do rather than stay somewhere I didn’t want to be.
I studied a 2 year Diploma of Remedial Therapies at the Australian College of Natural Medicine (ACNM) in Brisbane, and established HANDS from HEAVEN in March 2001. At that time I was a fresh graduate, and keen to make my mark on the Remedial Massage Industry. Being a new graduate with limited experience I chose to spend the first 5 years working in other people’s clinics gathering experience - working on varied client bases and learning from various other Health Care Professionals. Through this time I worked alongside Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Personal Trainers, and of course other Remedial Massage Therapists. I even operated a small private clinic within the grounds of the Queensland University of Technology (Kelvin Grove campus) providing Remedial Massage for the Dance Students and instilling in them the philosophy of caring for their tool-of-trade (their body) to enhance and support their performance career.
In 2006 I took seven months off to travel the world with my partner – 24 countries in 28 weeks … what a trip to re-charge my batteries!
In January 2007 I established my very first public clinic here in Stafford. At the same time as opening my clinic, I also re-enrolled at ACNM to upgrade my qualification to the Bachelor of Health Science (Musculoskeletal Therapy) … another 2 years of Full-time study - coinciding with building a new clinic. After graduating my degree I focused on building my clinic/business. During these years I always had at least one other therapist working here with me, and as a team we have been able to build a strong and reliable service for our community. Most of our clients live locally, but people will travel for quality treatment and we can boast a broad catchment area … some of our clients come from as far away as Redcliffe, even some from Toowoomba!
Between June 2013 & January 2015 I was lecturing at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies (ACNT), teaching technique classes and Supervising Student Clinics for both the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy and Diploma of Remedial Massage courses.
Kat joined my Team back in May 2014 and Andy joined my team back in February 2015 ... I taught both of them at ACNT when they were students - and for over a year-and-a-half we made a very enthusiastic and talented Therapy Team, providing our best for our community!
On 15 June 2016 I joined the Training Team at the Sage Institute of Massage, and currently teach classes in the new & revised Diploma of Remedial Massage (HLT52015).
As business continues to be strong, and as I returned to teach at Sage in June 2016, we needed extra help to provide what our community has come to expect from us - and so Angela joined our team in September 2016.
We continue to enjoy a busy clinic, building a stronger business along the way. We can proudly boast attracting an average of 7+ New Clients EVERY WEEK, and have maintained this average consistently since opening in January 2007! We love what we do and how we can help you feel, and this drives us to always provide the best Remedial Massage Treatments we can ... and this is clearly reflected in the continually growing strength of business here at HANDS from HEAVEN.
We really look forward to seeing you soon, and helping YOU feel the best you have felt in a long time.

Please note and remember when seeing Andy:
As Andy Graduated his Diploma of Remedial Massage in December 2014, he has been caught-up in the changes enforced by MediBank in September 2013. This means there are SOME restrictions for claims on his treatments with MBP, HCF, BUPA, HBA, and NIB members only .... ALL Other Health Funds recognise Andy exactly the same as Tony, Kat & Angela.
This has been a long and arduous trek for Andy (and all other 2014/15 Graduates) - To obtain MBP Recognition and full HICAPS capability - but the end IS in sight. Andy is now just awaiting the College (ACNT) to finalise his further study before this matter can be finalised completely ... More details are available on his profile on the Meet the Team page of this website.
