Welcome

Are you looking for an experienced massage therapist? Do you need someone to ‘get into’ those tight spots and release some tension with confidence? Do you have some pain or discomfort that you think might have a muscular cause? Or are you a health conscious person who knows about the numerous benefits of massage?

This is where I step in as a Remedial Massage Therapist to assist you in improving muscular health and balance. I can focus on a complaint to try and unravel a specific part of the body that feels tighter than the rest. I can do a general all over massage to help recover from training or general stiffness. Massage can also be done in addition to other ongoing therapy like physio, chiro or osteo to help maintain and prolong the effects of that treatment. Or you might just be stressed and a massage could be the thing that will help you switch off and hit the reset button. If you have any questions or want to make a booking, call me or text me on 0422 898 021.

Remedial Massage

If you’re looking for a good massage in Goonellabah or Lismore area you have come to the right place.
My qualification and experience is in Remedial Massage, which is a big umbrella term for different approaches and techniques to improve the condition of the soft tissue (muscle, tendons, ligaments and fascia) through manual therapy. During a remedial massage treatment, most of the time is spent massaging tight muscles or areas where soft tissue as become ‘stuck’ and doesn’t’ move as it should. The essence of the Remedial approach is to assist the soft tissue in recovery, rehabilitation, pain and injury management.

What I do

In 2006, I completed the Diploma of Remedial Massage at Sydney’s Nature Care College and  have been working as a Remedial Massage Therapist ever since. In 2015 I moved to Goonellabah to study Osteopathy at Southern Cross University.

Most of what I do during a treatment is hands on soft tissue massage with an emphasis on trying to release the deeper layers of muscle and fascia because that’s where I find most of the problems are. Typically  I start with broad general massage covering large areas of the body and as the treatment progresses I get more specific and hone in on tight spots. But I’ll change my approach depending on the patient’s request. Some people like a deeper stronger approach other prefer a more gentle one. My main goal is to create a change and improve the condition of the tissues. (more…)
