Chi Yang
Dip RM

Chi yang is a professional Chinese remedial massage therapist, trained in many techniques from various modern and ancient cultures. She provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow, holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

Some of her specialties include:

  • Structural alignment analysis, to help you improve posture, and have long lasting effects from treatments.

  • MET and PNF stretch techniques, to help reduce tightness in muscles, improve mobility and overall muscle wellbeing.

  • Remedial massage uses a wide range of diagnostic techniques to treat a condition, to reduce or remove muscle tension, repair damaged, knotted, or immobile muscles, improve circulation, and relax the body.

  • Deep Tissue Massage, combined with Chinese acupressure techniques, for therapeutic loosening of stiff muscles, releasing knots more easily, also help to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more deep pressure or friction across the grain of muscles.

  • Relaxation Massage, to help relief headache, immigrant and stressed symptoms, also can enhance the energy flow and body circulation.

  • Reflexology, helps to clear out congestion, release blocked energy and improve circulation through applying pressure to reflex area on the feet, stimulate the body organs and glands.

Bowen Therapy



Bowen Therapy is a system of connective tissue therapy, which stimulates healing and assists the body to return to an optimum state of balance. A series of gentle moves is performed across muscles and connective tissue on specific points of the body. These moves have a profound effect on the body, relaxing contracted tissue and promoting healing of damaged tissue.

Developed in Australia
Mr Tom Bowen (1916-1982), a Massage Therapist and Osteopath spent years developing his gentle and innovative technique in Geelong, Victoria. He became a very popular therapist, treating some 13,000 clients a year.

It’s safe
There are virtually no contraindications. Bowen Therapy is safe to use on all ages and problems. Infants and the frail elderly can be treated safely. It can be applied in most acute stages of sprains and injuries, and can safely be used on pregnant women.

Scenar Therapy



The Scenar and Enar instruments are Russian technology medical devices registered/listed with the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia. It has a 40 year track record as valuable therapy in Russian hospitals and elsewhere in Europe it is used by medical doctors, physiotherapists and orthopaedic specialists for many conditions and is especially good for pain relief.

Clinical study

In Australia Macquarie University’s dept. of Chiropractic in Sydney conducted a pilot study on a group of patients with neck pain and disability with remarkable results that were sustained when patients were checked again after 6 months!

How does it work?

The Scenar electro-dermal device has a unique dual electrode that interacts in real time with the C- fibres of your body’s nervous system. It is non invasive, painless and natural to the body. It detects where your nerve conductivity is inadequate, causing your brain to ignore problem areas in your tissues anywhere in the body. This feed-back loop tends to be quickly restored during treatment with rapid change in symptoms, as your normal self-healing response tends to kick in again: your body has some 3000 neuro-peptides available to send to the trouble spot. This not only takes care of pain in the tissues but usually appears to stimulate repair as well. So Scenar helps switch your body’s natural healing capacity back on.

The number of treatments required varies with the condition and each person, but after 1-3 half hour treatments once weekly, results tend to be obvious and further treatment may only be required less often in chronic conditions.

The more recent the complaint, the quicker the result! When nothing else has been of help, Scenar offers hope especially with pain due to any form of arthritis, neuralgia (incl. shingles) menstrual pain, trauma and after surgery. It tends to improve general well being and effectiveness of other therapies. It is compatible with medical treatment: your doctor may need to reduce medication as you improve.

Far Infrared Detox Box - Detox, De-stress, Rejuvenate



Do you feel older than you’d like, tired, foggy in the brain, have difficulty losing weight or have vague health complaints? It could be due to toxins.

There are now 80,000 man-made chemicals in existence, many of which we are absorbing from our air, water, food, plastics, cleaning agents, carpets, clothing, electrical appliances, furniture and car interiors. Toxins accumulate in our bodies. You may have toxins that have been in your system for decades.

Biopsy studies showed that 100% of people studied had the highly toxic chemicals dioxin, PCB, styrene, xylene and dichlorobenzene stored in their bodies!

If we want to be healthy and slow the ageing process while living amongst these toxins some form of detoxification is necessary. The most efficient way to detox is with Far Infrared saunas. People report feeling clean, refreshed and relaxed after their Far Infrared sauna sessions.
