Our team of highly trained and experienced therapists have knowledge of how our bodies work and move, and the stresses we put on them. It’s our goal to assist in finding the cause of pain or tension associated with dysfunction, imbalance, injury or disease, not just temporarily relieve it, using therapeutic massage designed especially for you.
We are specialists in therapeutic massage which is an umbrella term that covers a wide range of modalities and techniques that release the soft tissue including remedial, sports, deep tissue, relaxation response, trigger point therapy, myofascial release pregnancy and hot stone massage.
We use therapeutic massage techniques designed especially for you. We acknowledge that there is more than just one factor affecting our tissues and state of mind including exercise, nutrition, breathing, hydration stress levels, chemical imbalance and illness and injury. We can help to get you on the right path to physical and emotional freedom.
We also believe preventative care is paramount to our well-being. With such busy and stressful life demands today, adding regular therapeutic massage into your health and well-being regime is one of the wisest decisions we can make for ourselves. Skilled therapeutic massage is more than just a treat, you will be amazed at how it can improve the quality of your life in so many ways.
Massage is not only an incredibly satisfying way to facilitate achieving good physical and emotional health and wellbeing, but it is also a way to bring a new awareness to your body and can bring attention to areas that you may not realise may need a little attention, being preventative in care.

My main aim as a therapist is to help people bring their body back to an optimal structure, alignment and balance using different therapies such as massage and trigger point acupressure mixed with mobilisation, stretching or dry needling to avoid pain, injuries and to improve your range of motion. I also use the light touch technique of Craniosacral therapy to get you into a deep state of relaxation, which helps to release stress from the myofascial system around muscles and organs. I worked in Australia for a Chiropractor and clinics mainly with sports practitioners and people recovering from injuries. I have also worked at the Spa of Intercontinental Hotel in Sydney providing onsite massage and also provided corporate massage service and events around the city. I am passionate about Qigong and Thai yoga massage. I have practised and competed in boxing in the past and have recently become more interested in martial arts, this is a practice that helps me to be more aware of my posture and tension I hold in my body and how I can use this knowledge in my massage treatment for others.
