REMEDIAL MASSAGE DOCKLANDS
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
Our Massage Therapists – Josephine & Sarah
Having studied Myotherapy at RMIT University, Jodie regularly uses muscle testing, cupping, dry needling and rock-taping in her treatments, and also practises manual lymphatic drainage, reiki, abdominal massage and esoteric acupuncture.
Jodie enjoys working with her clients to allow their bodies to function at their optimal level. She has worked closely with a range of athletes, including professional gridiron and basketball teams, as well as circus performers.
Being community minded, Jodie has volunteered with Hands on Health to treat remote communities in Udaipur, India and underprivileged residents in Collingwood. Most recently she recently traveled to Thailand to volunteer Myotherapy treatments with a local Long Neck Karen tribe near Chiang Mai.
In her spare time, Jodie enjoys practising circus arts and studying anatomy. She is excited to apply her interests to her study of Chiropractic at RMIT from 2017.
Sarah brings with her over 10 years of experience in Remedial Massage. Since qualifying in Melbourne in 2008, she has worked in various clinics here and interstate. Whilst in Sydney, Sarah honed her skills working in a multi-disciplinary clinic alongside Chiropractors, a Sports Podiatrist, a Natural Nutritionist and Yoga/Pilates’ instructors.
Prior to Massage, Sarah had a successful career working in both the Corporate and Public sectors so she understands firsthand the pressures of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Sarah believes in the importance of ‘time out’ and brings a nurturing element to all of her treatments.
In 2010, Sarah trained in Myofascial Cupping which can assist in reducing fascial adhesions and maintaining soft tissue function. Sarah deepened her interest in fascia by attending an Anatomy Trains Workshop run by Tom Myers in 2011. More recently Sarah has completed a Kinesiology Rocktape Course and a Dry Needling Course. Sarah combines all of these modalities into her individually tailored treatments. She is registered with Massage & Myotherapy Australia and all of the major Health Funds.
Over the years it has become clear to Sarah that access to quality fitness and strength training is something her clients would benefit from. For this reason, she is currently enrolled in a Certificate IV in Personal Training which Sarah aims to finish in 2020.
