In Fine Fettle’s Health Professionals…
Cert. Relaxation Massage 1994 | Cert. Remedial Massage 1997 | Diploma Remedial Massage 2005 | Member: AMTA No. 10077
I was introduced to massage in 1991 when commencing studies of Naturopathy at the Southern School of Natural Therapies. In 1994 I began to establish my own business of mobile massage named Therapeutics for Body & Soul.
In 1996 I began working part time at a Naturopathic and Osteopathic clinic while still continuing with my own business. In 1999 I moved to a clinic in Berwick where I met Cristy. I continued developing Therapeutics for Body & Soul by introducing hospital work, specialising in new mums. It was probably in 2000 that our dream of opening our own clinic began and this took 2 years to come to fruition. Since then I have focused on my work with In Fine Fettle and I continue to be involved with the South Eastern Private Hospital.
Cert. IV Massage Therapy 1998 | Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) 2002 | Member: ANTA No. 4126
I have been working as a remedial massage therapist since 1999. I was based in a Berwick clinic for three years until the commencement of In Fine Fettle in 2002, where naturopathy was added to my regime.
Clinical experience has allowed me to develop a holistic approach to treating clients. In particular looking for a cause rather than a band-aid effect. For example, lower back pain may actually be indicating the need for orthotics. If a foot is not working appropriately then the body structure will be compensating and out of balance.
The therapists at In Fine Fettle have a sound local knowledge of other holistic practitioners and will happily refer clients if necessary.
I have always had a passion for remedial massage, seeing from a young age the incredible effects in both myself and others. At college I specialised in remedial massage, particularly Trigger Point Therapy, which is the main component of my treatments today. I always concentrate on treating the root of the problem, rather than merely the symptoms. I was also trained in relaxation massage at a wonderful day spa. Constantly expanding my knowledge of my profession allows me to treat a wide variety of clients and keeps me well informed of new treatments and studies. I look forward to working with you.
