I have worked as a Remedial Massage Therapist since graduating with my Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2009. I have always had a keen interest in working with the body – it is such a fascinating creation – our ability to change the way we move to accommodate injuries, the way we can build muscle to make ourselves so strong, and the way we can heal ourselves of injuries just by resting and allowing our bodies to recover – it’s very powerful! But sometimes we get out of whack!
I studied massage so that I would have a better idea of what goes wrong with people’s physical bodies as a result of what they do with them every day. An office worker, a professional cyclist and a landscape gardener will all have different patterns of use, and different patterns of pain. I love to investigate how people use their bodies so that I can target the muscles that are aching and overtired; and help get my clients back into better alignment.
Along with my Diploma, I have continued my education, having studied regular courses in Myofascial Release, Myofascial Strapping & Taping, Dry Needling and counselling.
(Myo = muscle, Fascia = the gladwrap like cover over each of our muscles – it separates one muscle from another, and also helps lubricate the muscles as they move, so they don’t cause friction and heat up too much!)
I love helping people discover that some pain is referred from a place that they never knew was problematic – the “A-Ha!” moment and the relief that people feel, with the feedback that I receive for what I do – makes my job very fulfilling, and something I continue to enjoy every day.
I am fully insured and covered by all Australian Private Health Funds for Remedial Massage rebates.
(I cannot offer rebates onsite – the HICAPs machine costs too much! But you can easily claim back upon my receipt.)
I have massaged all over NSW – from Murwillumbah to Mallanganee, Byron Bay to Inverell and down to the Newcastle & Hunter region.
I am currently based in Hamilton Tuesday – Thursday, and work from home Mondays & Fridays in Jesmond.
