Inspiring exceptional health, being of service and reconnecting you to the wellness within is my life purpose & I give thanks each and every day for the opportunity to share in the lives and experiences of others and to have a positive impact on their happiness and wellbeing.
My love for nature has been a part of my being since as long as I can remember… finding the connection between science and spirit in all things has been a life long mission that continues today.
After years of personal study and practice of alternate health methods I moved into anatomy & physiology with the completion of my Fitness Leader’s certificate. Whilst practicing as a Personal Trainer it became apparent to me that true Health & Wellness involved so much more than ‘DOING’ and for individuals to reach their unique state of Health and Happiness a well “BEING’ approach was required… this included rest, relaxation and time ‘in’.
In support of my new found approach to health, I completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2014 and have been working full time as a Massage Therapist ever since.
In 2015 I was Reiki attuned at level 2 and quickly began to include energy healing as a part of my treatments. After seeing the positive impact of combining energy medicine & massage I sought other energetic modalities to compliment my practice and it’s here that the SCENAR device made its appearance in my life and in my treatments… up until this very day it’s the only treatment modality that provides my Mum with relief from the nerve damage she suffers which was caused by shingles.
As an Integrative Remedial Therapist blessed with three powerful complimentary modalities available with every treatment, I am able to assist in healing Body, Mind and Spirit.
Even though I believe that it is possible for a person to make the journey to health alone, I also believe that it should never be the case. We are all connected and I believe we heal through systemic interactions with the whole. It’s only through the care & co-operation of others that we truly thrive.

Each muscle in our body is connected to our brain through the physical and nervous systems. Kinesiology is able to access information from the subconscious, to determine what your body needs to be able to heal itself. Kinesiology identifies blockages in these systems, by using gentle, non-invasive muscle testing techniques. These blockages are often caused by emotional trauma, unresolved stress, physical injury or insufficient nutrition in our diet. Kinesiology can help you though life challenges, identifying triggers and unhealthy habits. Assisting in reducing stress, anxiety, negative thinking and belief systems. It can help with learning difficulties, sports performance and goal setting. Creating healthy balance in the mind and the physical body.
Kinesiology helps to enhance the natural healing process by using a range of techniques and powerful tools specific to each client. This, in turn restores balance and health, enabling clients to reach their highest potential and be the best version of themselves.

Helping people to be healthier, stronger, relaxed and happy is my great passion. I am convinced that everything is interconnected: food and movement affect both: mental and physical health. The mindset and mental health affect body and physical health, and the other way round.
Sport is my lifelong addiction. Since my parents are really sporty, we used to spend our free time cycling, skiing, climbing and hiking. The true love started when I was 15 and I started snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding and wakeskating. However, almost two years ago I tried surfing for the first time and at that point realized that it is the thing I want to do until the end of my life.
As I have always loved sport and I wanted to gain a deep and comprehensive understanding in the human body, sport and movement, I decided to pursue Master Degree in Sports Science at Griffith University. Since I want to progress myself in boardsports and I want to help the others to become better, I completed courses in Personal Training, Yoga Teaching, and Sports and Relaxing Massage Therapy.
Training is about pain, working hard, overcoming challenges and obstacles. However, balance is essential. Sport requires a lot of mental, physical and emotional energy. To regenerate and restore the energy, it is important to relax.
Massage is the oldest way of healing. It is beneficial to entire wellbeing – physical, mental and emotional. Various research shows that some of the physical benefits of massage are: Increase in the range of motion in muscles and decrease in the recovery time between workouts, injury rehab and prevention, muscle pain and tension relief, enlargement and growth of new mitochondria (if the massage follows an intense workout).
In regards to mental benefits, sports massage: relieves anxiety, reduces stress and increases concentration
Enhancing performance is not only about training. It is a comprehensive process, which has to be approached in a holistic way with respect to the athlete’s uniqueness.
