Carla developed an interest in Remedial Massage Therapy after seeing the benefits of soft tissue work in injury rehabilitation and prevention. She is passionate about supporting people to live healthy and happy lives in which they can move without worry or hesitation.
Carla is an active listener during her treatment sessions and loves to clearly understand her clients’ needs so she can help them reach their potential.
“Understanding how muscles work and connect through the body is critical to improving functional movement”, says Carla. She sees a vital part of her role is in supporting her clients to feel and understand better posture and ways to move, and in this way aiding their recovery.
Creating partnerships with her clients through treatment and education Carla strives to work with them to help create lasting change.

Erin’s favourite saying is ‘don’t regret the things you do; regret the things you don’t do.’
Erin’s personal motto has led her to dive headlong into her passion of service.
She is a qualified Remedial Massage therapist and is currently studying Bowen therapy to complement her skills set.
“Seeing the results my client’s get is the most rewarding feeling. Working in collaboration with my clients is also an important part of the process,” says Erin. “Helping clients understand their body, how it works, or doesn’t work sometimes, is an important piece of the puzzle to reaching your goals.”
Erin is an active person playing football with her local club, Drysdale Hawks. She is also a keen basketballer and enjoys running weekly. She works with the international charity Hands Across the Water and has had a number of trips to Thailand to support orphanages and raises money through different activities including a 450km bike ride in regional NSW.
Erin is part of an advisory group for a government funded research program into injury prevention and management for community level female football. Recording data and investigating injury prevention will hopefully make the game of AFL more inviting for females to try.
