Remedial Massage has been my career for 17 years. My interest in the human body and how it works stems from my life as an athlete, where I played over 100 games of Softball for Australia and also in Local and State Championships over a period of 14 years.
Even when I stopped competing I knew I always wanted to continue my involvement in sports.
I became a specialist coach which took me to the Athens & Beijing Olympics. I’ve also been lucky enough to work with many professional Australian sporting teams, including the Brisbane Lions, Qld State of Origin team, The Wallabies and Australian Institute of Sports athletes – through to local representative and high school teams.
I know it’s important that you have to give the right diagnosis, and it’s imperative that a therapist be able to communicate properly with the sports medical teams to get the athlete back to an optimal state as quickly as possible.
I’ve seen all aspects of rehabilitation. Coordinated it, administered it and received it.
I get a real kick out of helping everyday people with general problems and common complaints – using the same philosophies that have carried through my career – aiming to get people moving better, faster and for longer periods of time.
My experience is second to none, and working in multi-disciplinary clinics has left me confident in liaising with other health professionals to help when I can’t.
Aside from my extensive background in remedial massage, I enjoy using my positive approach to help and motivate others. I’ve used my skills and experience as an accredited coach and draw on these during guest speaking opportunities at various training camps.
