Remedial for the people
Relax, Renew, Revive
I'm began my bodywork career over 20 years ago when I studied remedial massage as part of my naturopathy studies, and am still as passionate today about helping people feel better as I was then. It is always satisfying to see the difference in someones face after they have had a treatment, I'll never get tired of it.
Learning Bowen therapy in 2009 opened the door for a range of other techniques to assess and get results. I'm constantly amazed by the deep and profound changes that result from Bowen. I continue to attend seminars and workshops to learn new skills and better ways of doing things.
Although I have practised as a naturopath, my passion is for bodywork, so now I only offer Bowen therapy and remedial massage.
My skills and personality seem to resonate the most with women, or men who are in touch with their feminine side. I don't really do rough and heavy massage these days, if that's what you're after I'm not for you. If you want someone whose hands immediately find where you're sore and tight, and who has a variety of methods to coax each area to release, leaving you soothed and relaxed, then you should come and see me.

Remedial massage helps to assist in pain and stress management, and recovery from injury. Remedial massage can incorporate relaxation massage and pregnancy massage.
We all do things every day that put our body under pressure. Sitting at the computer, looking at our phones, driving in our cars, pregnancy, child birth and looking after small children, carrying heavy items. It's no wonder that we feel sore or have stained muscles. Sometimes these niggles become pains that keep us awake at night, or stop us from doing things we love. It's amazing how even a short session of targeted treatment can relieve pain, improve sleep and improve joint function.
Half hour massage - $55
One hour massage - $90
One and a half hour massage - $130
Health fund rebates available on HICAPs
Bowen Therapy was originally developed by Tom Bowen of Geelong, Victoria. I obtained my diploma with Bowtech, an excellent school teaching one interpretation of Bowen's work. Since qualifying, I have completed training with a number of specialists, with more training planned.
Bowen moves are performed by gently rolling over muscles or tendons. This gentle technique is very relaxing and can positively affect a range of issues. In my experience, Bowen can stimulate profound shifts in the body, especially with chronic, long term conditions.
Some conditions I've seen greatly improve or resolve are plantar fasciitis, chronic neck issues, back conditions, headaches, migraines, sleep issues, post operative niggles and many more.
Half hour short session - $55
1 hour standard session - $85
Children's session - $30 - $55
SCAR TISSUE RELEASE
While the surgery may have been a success, the result can be a scar which is numb, tight, puckered or just plain ugly. This technique can help restore feeling, reduce redness and smooth out the scar. Scars can also cause dysfunction in nearby joints. If you have a scar that is giving you problems, this work may help. This is usually performed as part of a massage or Bowen session, but scar release can be done as a stand alone session of about half an hour.
Scars from injuries or surgery addressed.
Scar tissue release session - $55
