About me

Early in my life, I realised the many benefits of massage and that I had a natural affinity for massaging. Massage is now considered a part of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Since then I have complemented my personal qualities and skills by completing a range of accredited courses in massage and related treatments.
Through my long established clinic, conveniently located in the city, I have been able to assist my clients with a range of health issues. These have included giving relief from specific aches and ailments to promoting relaxation and wellbeing.
My passion for good nutrition and wellness has also allowed me to offer information and support to assist them to achieve optimum health.
So whether you need help with a particular problem or you just want to reward yourself with a soothing and relaxing massage, call me for an appointment.

Expertise

  • Deep Tissue
    Remedial Massage / Deep Tissue Massage concentrates on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body, through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on contracted areas, by either following or crossing over the muscle fibers, fascia and tendons. The techniques can include Trigger Point Therapy, deep tissue massage and stretching thereby creating an improved range of motion through the joints. This type of massage therapy addresses specific problems associated with chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation, sporting and occupational injuries, and physical and mental fatigue. It's important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate toxins from the body.
