What inspired you to get into this line of work?
I’ve always been interested in the human body and the many different paths to health. I love the simplicity of using my hands as my tools of trade to facilitate the body’s own ability to repair.
What are your qualifications?
I’ve had a varied career, starting with a Bachelor of Arts double major in Film and TV and Politics in Perth, before moving onto a Diploma of Acupressure and Traditional Chinese Massage, and an Advanced Diploma of Traditional Chinese Massage in Burwood NSW. I have also acheived a Diploma of Remedial Massage (Glebe NSW and Randwick TAFE NSW), as well as completed courses in Pregnancy massage and Oncology massage.
What do you enjoy about working at Motion Health Centre?
Motion Health Centre has a great team environment, with a wholistic approach to health. It is an energetic clinic with its finger on the pulse, prepared to move with the times and adapt with its clients.
Why should people come to Motion Health Centre?
When people come to Motion Health Centre, they can get a complete picture about their health and well-being. The team is friendly and up-to-date with its wholistic, collaborative approach.
When it comes to your modality, what are you passionate about?
I am passionate about massage because I view the body within a physical, mental and cellular framework. Science, medicine and our whole approach to health is constantly evolving, and I love being able to explore the new while keeping the basics.
What is your philosophy on life and health?
The greatest gift is life – to live it, create it, learn from it, and embrace humanity. We should and need to care and respect ourselves and equally we should care for and respect our planet.
What makes you different from other practitioners in your modality?
Come in and see for yourself! What I know is that I’m doing what I love. There’s a lot of skills and styles out there – like anything- it’s the knowing what to use and when to use it. I believe I have the experience and a range of techniques that give me an edge over many other massage therapists.
What type of clients do you absolutely love working with?
I love proactive clients. I love hearing someone come back and say “I’ve been doing those exercises, I’ve been correcting my posture, I’ve adjusted my screen height / tried a new routine…” It tells me that they not only appreciate my services, but are also serious enough about their health and themselves that they want to improve.
I love honesty. Good or bad. Whether someone’s on a good run or is a really stressed out – that’s how life goes. Sometimes we gotta move right along – sometimes it’s best to grab a book and a cuppa tea and shut down and relax for a bit. Don’t be afraid of life’s diversity and adversity— enjoy the ride as best you can.
