NDIS and Mobile Massage Therapy
What is NDIS?
NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. It is a government initiative set up to fund people with disabilities for them to get access to the support they need to improve their skills and independence over time.
Does NDIS Cover Massage Therapy?
This depends on how your NDIS fund is managed as well as your or your client's individual needs.
Massage would need to be included in your NDIS plan (your client’s plan if you are a support coordinator or agency).
There are two categories that that it may make sense to include massage under:
• Improved Daily Living
• Improved Health and Wellbeing
Many people find that massage can help with chronic pain management. It can also be helpful for relieving stress, anxiety, and depression.
If you are a self-managed and plan-managed participant, you may be able to use your NDIS funding to cover the costs of massage therapy, however, this depends on your individual needs and whether this support is related to your disability and will help you pursue your goals and aspirations.
Participants requiring support to improve mobility and muscle function or relief from chronic pain or stiffness in joints may be able to access funding for massage therapy under their plan.
How do I access massage services through NDIS funding:
Accessing massage services via your NDIS fund depends on how your fund is managed. There are three key ways to manage your funding as an NDIS participant:
Self-managed: you’ll be given access to your NDIS funding and will be able to manage this yourself based on the goals you’re working towards.
Plan-managed: you’ll be given a Plan Manager who will help match you with providers, keep track of your funds and take care of the financial reporting for you.
NDIA-managed: this means the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will pay providers and manage your funding on your behalf.
We recommend contacting the NDIA to see if this service is covered by your funding.

Our patient stories
See what our happy clients say
I was impressed with how thorough Imad was at my first remedial massage appointment/assessment. He always asks how my muscles, joints are feeling and talks with me about his ideas for the areas he will focus on. I come away feeling very relaxed and with more movement and have definitely noticed an improvement in my flexibility and stiffness since I have been seeing Imad.
