Your Massage Therapist & Aromatherapist
After almost 12 years working as a massage therapist, I know that there are many reasons why you may find yourself on my table.
You might be a busy mum, taking some well-deserved time out. You might be in your retirement years, prioritising your health so you can live life to its fullest. You might be a tradesman, taking a moment in your busy day to ensure you can work without pain. Or, you might be a dad, who tripped over his son’s cricket bat and realised you’re not as young as you used to be.
Whatever the reason is that has brought you to me, you’re in safe hands. I finished studying my Diploma of Therapeutic Massage and Remedial Therapies in 2009, and have gone on to formally study further in Advanced Sports Massage, Aromatherapy, Traditional Thai Massage and Myofascial Release. I’m a registered level 6 massage therapist with Massage New Zealand, and a member of Sports Medicine NZ, which means that I’m committed to on-going learning and development, every year. Last and definitely not least, I am currently studying the Dr Vodder technique of Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy. As this is an extremely in depth technique catering to all levels of lymphatic system pathologies, I am not yet qualified or trained well enough to treat people with less than healthy lymphatic systems - keep me in mind for early 2021 when I will have completed my training!
Beyond the certifications, is something equally important. It’s the intuitive ability to gauge the stress and tension in your body. It’s the innate understanding of what your body needs in order to relax or rebalance. It’s the feeling of care, compassion and calm you’ll experience when you step into my clinic room.
I’ve travelled the world, met diverse people, seen amazing places, discovered different perspectives and learnt languages (French, Spanish, Portuguese) - which have all contributed to shaping my open mind, kind heart and spiritual self-assuredness.
I’m proud to call Aotearoa home, and honoured to play a part in helping you get back to doing what you love, living a life free of pain or tension, or taking a deserved moment of self-care.
