Remedial massage can help you break free from pain

Remedial massage therapy can help you comfortably do the things that bring you happiness and joy in your life – whether it’s crushing your personal best on the sports field, or just playing with your kids without pain.

What I love most about my remedial massage work is that I get to mix my life’s passion together with my drive to genuinely help people to live their lives. It’s a win-win!

This is my purpose in life, and I love to share it with you.

I have a clinic location on Nicholson Street, Carlton North, inside The Urban Alchemist, a multi-modality complementary health clinic. Also available at T.U.A. are naturopaths, chiropractors, psychologists, and specialist grief counsellors. Additionally, we network and refer to physiotherapists, doctors, occupational therapists, and surgical specialists. Even if we can’t help you, we can probably point you to someone who can!

While I am studying my Bachelor of Myotherapy full-time, I am available in clinic just two days per week on Thursdays between 16:00–19:30, and Sundays between 09:00–16:00.

Shoulders are what I do best

I am particularly fascinated with shoulders. Our shoulders are amazingly mobile – and, in order to be so mobile, they are also unstable. There are 17 muscles that attach to the human scapula, so there is plenty that can go wrong.

What I call “corrective” remedial massage is about putting your shoulders (and other pieces) back in the correct places, and then retraining you with the correct movement patterns so that they stay there.

But this is just the start. Hips, knees, necks, elbows, ankles, backs… and if you’re feeling uncertain, that’s no problem: I’ll be happy to chat to you on the phone, share a few emails, or take you through a FREE 15-minute assessment to give you confidence in what I do.

I’ve written several blog articles about how I approach specific conditions. Take a look at them here.

Don’t let injury hold you back

I’m all about helping people get the best out of their bodies. Don’t miss work, don’t skip sports, and don’t lose sleep.

What to expect

I’ve written a whole page about what you can expect from your remedial massage treatment with me. If you’ve never received a remedial massage before and you’re not sure what to wear, what will happen, or how it will feel, click here to read more.
