Our Story

Stable began close to our home in St. Kilda, and has now expanded to four locations across inner Melbourne (St Kilda, Fitzroy, CBD and Prahran). At each Stable clinic you will find a team of knowledgeable, strong and diligent therapists who specialise in deep tissue remedial massage, myotherapy and sports massage.

We also offer relaxation massage, dry needling and pregnancy massage.

Our clinics are open 7 days a week, and our reception team are happy to take bookings over the phone. For late night or early morning bookings feel free to jump into our online booking system.

Our Founder

Hi I’m Zoe, mother of three and avid tennis player. I started Stable Massage in 1998 as a qualified massage therapist. At the time I was focusing on providing strong deep tissue massage to highly active and hard working clients. The treatments helped with pain reduction, reduced stiffness and aches, and increased range of movement – supporting clients to relax, recover and perform at their optimal ability.

My husband and I realised that the majority of health clinics focused primarily on relaxation massage and were not providing the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy to their clientele. We saw a clear opportunity to provide these specialised services, and Stable Massage was born!

I look forward to you visiting the clinics and please do not hesitate to give me any feedback, either online or by giving us a call.

    Spot on Massage Needed some help with a very stiff back and Charlton at Stable Massage did a fantastic job with remedial massage to loosen things up. Focused on the areas that needed help and was very good at listening to what I needed.

    Super relaxing, recommend My first massage of this type (previously only had Thai massages elsewhere) and it was all very professional but relaxed, and the massage itself was really good. Left feeling incredibly soothed and relaxed! Absolutely would recommend and will be going back.

    Excellent! Great friendly service. They really take time to understand what is wrong and provide the right treatment and recovery advice. A little more pricey than the average but definitely value for money. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
