Having spent most of my life involved in sport in one way or another, I learned early on that manual therapy can play an invaluable role, not only in managing injuries but also in preventing them. It provided me with an opportunity to relax and unwind during the week when I had to juggle the pressure of work with the physical activity of football, martial arts, touch football, basketball, golf and swimming.
The benefits of massage and manual therapies have been clear to me from a client's point of view for over 30 years. I decided to do something about it so that I could provide others with this same form of relief from stress, soft tissue injuries, aches and pains, headaches and back pain, that I had relied upon.
I graduated from Hunter College of Massage with a Diploma of Remedial Massage - HLT50307, a nationally recognised qualification approved by the NSW Vocational Educational and Training Board.
During this time, I also attended WEA Hunter, where I completed what I considered to be a critical component of my training, Provide Remedial Massage Treatment to Athletes - HLTREM513A. This is what is more commonly known as "Sports Massage."
After years of completing many short courses, adding to my skills, I decided to return to formal, nationally recognised study in 2016 and invested almost two years commuting to and from the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy - MIMT, to complete my qualification as a Myotherapist
