Jan completed her Diploma of Remedial Massage at ACNM in 2005, although she has formally been involved with massage during her studies since 2002.
Her history is working with people that have physical stresses that relate to their body use in a work environment.
Treatment focus is to release myofascial tension to relieve postural stress, move towards better alignment & movement patterns.
A combination of techniques may be employed to achieve this, including myofascial release, cupping, trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, facilitated stretching & manual lymphatic drainage massage.

Sam graduated from RMIT University in 2017. With an extensive history in various sports and modalities of fitness, including personal training, Sam works with clients to reduce their levels of pain while optimizing the functionality of the body as a whole.
Whether your pain is acute or chronic, Sam emphasises that all patients should leave the clinic with a far better understanding of their pain, including what they are experiencing and why. Holistic treatments include manual therapy, strengthening and stretching exercises, as well as promoting increased awareness and ergonomic adjustments throughout the patient’s day to day life. All in an attempt to ensure rehabilitation and ongoing maintenance rather than respite.
