RECOVER. RESTORE. REVITALISE.
Hummingbods Massage Therapy
A deep passion for healing came when I saw a loved one benefit from the positive effects that Massage Therapy can provide.My love of helping people encourages me to achieve great results with my clients. I work to relieve muscular pain, prepare clientsfor sporting events, aiding recovery from exercise or allow the mind to escape through general relaxation. I work with other Allied Health Professionals to aide my client’s in reaching their health goals.
My main focus of work is with sports rehab, chronic disease and the elderly. Through working with this range of people, I have been able to develop techniques to assist in maintaining health and managing a variety of conditions. I am able to do this by working with the body to enable the muscles to relax and receive the treatment they need.
