Remedial massage can help you break free from nagging pain

Why I am a massage therapist
What I love most about my remedial massage work is that I get to combine my life’s passion and purpose together with helping you out of pain, stress and dysfunction so you can live your life the way you want. Everybody wins!
I have a wonderful clinic location on Nicholson Street, Carlton North, inside The Urban Alchemist, a multi-modality complementary health clinic.
Also available at The Urban Alchemist are naturopaths, chiropractors, psychologists, acupuncturists, occupational therapists, and specialist grief counselors. There are also three other remedial massage therapists, each with a slightly different style. We’ve got you covered.

You might even meet Molly the malamute when you come to the clinic! She is LOVELY.
Additionally, we network and refer out between physiotherapists, personal trainers, GPs, yoga instructors, Pilates coaches, occupational therapists, and surgical specialists.
Even if we can’t help you, we can point you to someone who can!

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 tailored restorative movement patterns so that they stay there.
But this is just the start. Hips, knees, necks, elbows, ankles, necks, 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.
To book a free, no-obligation assessment, call the front desk.
I’ve written several articles about how I approach specific conditions. Is yours on the list? 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.
