I am currently studying a Science degree at Sydney university. This will greatly expand my ability ultimately allowing me to combine Remedial massage with Physiotherapy. I have always been fascinated with human health and using my knowledge to help others, I am more focused on an holistic approach but do address specific areas that are needed to be released. My massage therapy can help in many areas such as insomnia, muscular tension, headaches and migraines plus work related stress. I have also worked with other health practitioners such as chiropractors, physiotherapists which has given me a better insight on testing and assessing certain areas of the body.

I have a life long desire to help people to a better life, to feel good and be healthier. Massage therapy and teaching physical education are the medium I use to improve my client's client wellbeing and enjoyment of life. Specifically with massage I feel satisfied when they smile because they are now pain free, are relaxed and move more freely. My studies focussed on my fascination for the human body - how it moves, how it works and how soft tissue therapy greatly enhances its functioning. Interestingly modern biological science continues to reveal new knowledge in areas like fascial release. I am also a fitness professional and as a PE teacher I like to work with kids, teaching volleyball and other sports. I have a Diploma in Remedial Massage, a Diploma of Fitness and a Master of Physical Education. I am fluent in Czech, Polish and Russian. I am available several days per week.

John Sullivan - Remedial - Relaxation - Deep Tissue - Sports - Reiki - Qigong
I completed my Diploma in Remedial Massage at Naturecare College where most Northern Beach's therapists train. After many years working in IT I felt it was time to get out of the office and work more closely with people. I am convinced massage is very effective through my own personal experience with a lower back problem. Using Trigger Point Therapy combined with PNF stretching and core exercises I overcame what potentially could have been a debilitating injury. I now apply my knowledge through my massage treatments to give my clients long term results. I have a strong interest in the bodies energetic meridian system so I use Reiki and Qi Gong to treat people on another level. I love life on the Northern Beaches living close to Curl Curl beach. I surf when the waves are up. My other sporting interests include cross country mountain biking and outdoor fitness training.
Howard Gilmore - Remedial - Relaxation - Deep Tissue - Sports - Pregnancy - Cancer - Lymph Drainage - WorkCover
I specialise in several areas of massage - including people suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. Also I work with people who have lymphoedema, that is a compromised lymphatic system caused by surgery eg. breast cancer that causes a back-up of fluid causing swelling. For people who are injured at work I am accredited with WorkCover NSW and the major workers compensation insurers. My interest in therapeutic massage was sparked at the time I worked in the corporate environment. I enjoyed regular massages as a powerful antidote to the pressures of a busy job and they kept my energy ticking over and kept my mind focused. So impressed by the benefits I experienced, I took up massage studies and graduated with a Diploma of Remedial Massage in 1997. Several years later I took the plunge, changed careers and joined Thanya working as a massage therapist.
