Yvonne Kelly

World Triathlete Competitor

I am a triathlete who has competed in 3 World Championships. My best placing was fifth in 1990. I have since dabbled in adventure racing competing in events like the Anaconda and Geoquest adventure races. What I love about Hender Massage is the convenience. Because Hender Massage is mobile, I don’t waste time traveling and can continue to relax after my massage so the benefits last longer. Time is certainly precious especially when competing, working full time and raising a family.

Tanya Simmonds – Migraines and Back Pain

I work full-time and also a casual job so being able to have a massage at home at night with your own creature comforts around you and not having to drive anywhere after a massage is much more relaxing and means I dont have to try to fit it in around my very busy life. Daniel is very professional and is the only massage therapist that has made a difference with my back and neck injuries, if I could buy his hands I would. Not only does remedial and deep tissue massage and structural alignment help to relax me, but mobility is easier and my sleep routine is much better after a massage. Daniel has also helped to provide me with exercises that I do daily to help strengthen my muscles. I messaged Daniel lat time I had a migraine and he fitted me in within a few hours. I look forward to my regular massages every 2-3 weeks. I have recommended Hender Massage to my friends and family and they too are obtaining great results

Kay Clynick – Bulging Disc

It was not long after moving to Hallidays Point, when I suffered a debilitating back problem – bulging lumber discs. The local GP suggested Physiotherapy & analgesia, as it would take months to improve if at all, but thought surgery would most likely be required. Surgery as far as I was concerned was out of the question. I had been seeing a Chiropractor for a few weeks but was not improving as fast as I would like, so considered to try massage therapy as well. I looked up the yellow pages & there staring in my face was an ad “I COME TO YOU”, Hender Massage. So I rang & made an appointment. What a great decision. On the appointed day & on time, a very polite Daniel appeared on the doorstep. After the first massage I considered he knew what he was doing so decided to continue with him. I have been having regular treatments now for 3 months & am finally able to move easier with little pain. I know, that without Daniel’s great massaging technique, I would certainly have ended up having surgery. I cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism, knowledge & understanding. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who requires massage therapy

Alan Pursch – Dragon Boat Competitor

Daniel gives an excellent massage – thorough, tailored to individual needs, and always therapeutic

Ern Death – Neck pain

I have enjoyed & benefited from a monthly massage for the past 12 months & can recommend Hender massage to anyone seeking a professional in this field

Kevin Lee – ITB and Back pain

Daniel gave me a one hour massage and it was great. I had a couple of tight and sore muscles and he was able to release these. Not only did I feel very relaxed immediately afterwards but it is now 5 days later and the benefits are still apparent (moving freely). I’ll certainly be lining up again. Ps Thanks again, great massage!

Jenny Everett – Ruptured Disc

I have been using Hender Massage Australia for several years now to assist with sports injuries & general muscle soreness from the rigours of dairy farming. Daniel is very professional in everything he does and never fails to deliver a very thorough massage. The convenience of him coming to you is great too. Allowing me to have little interruption to my busy schedule is a big plus. Thanks Daniel, love your work !!

Bev Patterson – Neck and RSI

My husband Rod and I have had Daniel Hender, massage us several times in the privacy and convenience of our own place of business and we highly recommend his services. His massage technique really works your sore muscles and we always feel revived and ready to go again the next day

Graham Muller – Neck and Back

I’m a long-term sufferer from neck and back pain. Over the years I’ve sought relief from numerous chiropractors and physiotherapists with varying degrees of success. After a recent chance recommendation, I engaged the services of Daniel Hender. After just two sessions my pain has reduced substantially, I have greater mobility and energy, and an improved mood. Daniel is a true professional, certainly knows his craft, is pleasant and punctual. The convenience of being treated in your own home is obvious. I shall continue to use Daniel’s service as needs be, and have no hesitation in recommending him to everyone

Josh Polly – Carpel Tunnel and Hamstrings 

I have been using Hender Massage Australia for several years now to assist with sports injuries & general muscle soreness from the rigours of dairy farming. Daniel is very professional in everything he does and never fails to deliver a very thorough massage. The convenience of him coming to you is great too. Allowing me to have little interruption to my busy schedule is a big plus. Thanks Daniel, love your work !!

Keith Ross – Back Pain

After putting up with a very painful lower back problem for a number of month’s a neighbor recommended Daniel Hender. Daniel diagnosed my problem, and after an hour’s massage i could move a lot more freely and felt a lot less pain. As i have had this problem for some time now, i know i will need follow up treatment, so Daniel gave me some stretching exercises to do until my next appointment. Daniel acted in a very professional manner at all times and i would not hesitate to recommend him

Billy Higgins – Rotor cuff

Have been having “Remedial Massage” done by Daniel now for over 2 years now and he has managed to keep me in a very healthy state and when I do not have a massage due to my work lifestyle, I do feel a lot worse for it. My posture and awareness of how to maintain myself is a lot due to Daniel and his natural ability to feel and work on your body to keep it healthy and to the best level possible. Thanks mate, all the best and hope you can keep up this care for many years to come

Monica Samali – Pregnant

Hi Daniel, I just want to thank you for coming to my home during my pregnancy for massage. I would have thought that massage was impossible since it was difficult to lie on my stomach, but your specially designed cushion made it not only possible, but also very comfortable and supportive right up towards the end of my pregnancy. I was one of those people that had reservations about getting massages, especially from a male masseuse, however, your professional and courteous service as well as the convenience of coming to my home, made me feel very relaxed and completely at ease which I really appreciated. Thanks again! Monica Samali

Sherren Ong – Upper Back Pain

Since being under Daniel’s care, my back and neck no longer give me the pain that I suffered in the past, he has consistently kept the muscles under control…” “..He is truly at the top of his field in my opinion and I value his treatment and advice.” “Daniel shows great care for every patient and their individual needs. He has also treated my daughter, Ashton, with great success. He is very pleasant in his manner, makes you feel completely relaxed during treatment and has a wonderful sense of humour. I highly recommend this gentleman to all ages…”

John “Stomper” Winterburn – President of Willowbank Raceway

Daniels expertise and professional manner ensures that every session is a highly enjoyable experience. My health and outlook has improved, and my pains have been significantly reduced since I have started using his services. I would recommend Daniel to anyone

Jill Illidge

Ahhhhhhh, thanks Daniel

Alan Pursch – Dragon Boat Competitor

I have received one massage from Daniel. It was a very good massage and relieved my pain at the time; 24 hours later I am still feeling very comfortable and have arranged another massage in a few weeks time. Thank you Daniel. I look forward to continuing with a regime of frequent massage

Bronwen Forsyth – Ironman

I’m a competitive triathlete based in Brisbane who has been using Daniel Hender for the past three years. Massage is essential for any triathlete who wishes to keep their body in top condition and able to cope with the strains that training and competition places upon it. I have little doubt that without Daniel, I could not have completed riding +1600 km from Brisbane to Townsville or competing at Goondoowindi’s ‘Hell of the West’ Triathlon (2/80/20). I prefer to use Hender Massage Australia (HMA) for the following reasons: 1. Ease. HMA come to you! This has been essential in order to squeeze massage into my busy lifestyle (I train six days a week, study full-time and work part-time). 2. Professionalism. I have never felt awkward or uncomfortable with HMA. My privacy is respected at all times. 3. Performance. I race stronger and recover quicker with HMA. So do yourself and your body a favour and make an appointment with HMA today!

Early 2011 I injured my back at work resulting in a herniated disk in my lower back which was extremely painful, and I was unable to continue work. I was sent to see specialists in Sydney by my G.P, they recommended that i had a operation to relieve the pain , this was out if the question for me there was no way I wanted to go through that unless there was no other option. I had been receiving massages from Daniel Pryor to my injury and found him to be extremely professional and caring. With weekly massages from Daniel since my injury I have been able to return to work full time 38 hrs a week totally avoiding operations. Daniel has given me stretching exercises to do each day, as well as Core strengthening exercises which has been extremely helpful in regaining my return to work. Now back to receiving massages monthly. I highly recommend Hender Massage. It defiantly has huge benefits in enabling people to return to work after serious injury

Darren Bird - Herniated Disc

I would like to thank you for making both pregnancies as comfortable as possible with your pregnancy massages. For the first pregnancy I was experiencing a sciatic pain down my right leg and cramps in my calves, you were able to ease both these pains and make life so much easier. Not to mention your comfy pregnancy pillows/cushions let me lay on my tummy with ease. This pregnancy I also had the flu for 5 weeks and managed to pull a muscle in my back and was unable to even change my daughters nappy, until you gave me a massage and I was able to get off the massage table and lift my arms in the air straight away. I was amazed at how quickly I recovered after your help. I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family (in fact I already have) for any massage, but especially pregnancy massages!

Hayley Beazley - Pregnant

I started seeing Daniel on the recommendation of a friend who had found relief from back pain after Daniel had treated him. I had shoulder pain, neck pain and head aches, which were impacting on my life. Once a regular swimmer I was forced to reduce my swimming due to headaches. Since seeing Daniel, I am now swimming regularly again without pain. I no longer have neck stiffness or pain due to pinched nerves. I now have freedom of movement of my neck. My life is more relaxed and I am able to be more active free from pain. In the past I have seen many different practitioners with different issues of pain. Daniel has been able to treat successfully ailments that I have had ongoing issues with for years. I continue to see Daniel to maintain the benefits of his massage and for a treat
