Our Massage Therapists

Paulette Donaldson

As a long-term Taupo resident and the owner of the Massage Clinic I have practiced Massage for many years in Taupo.

 

I have seen the benefits of massage and have trained in some specialised massage techniques such as Bowen and Reiki.  

 

I am a keen supporter of the events held in Taupo and have massaged many Ironman and Cycle Challenge participants over the years. I am always willing to talk to people about the potential that bodywork has to improve people’s quality of life.

Cate Platt

I am a Clinical Exercise Physiologist as well as a sports and remedial massage therapist. My aim is to to improve physical well-being and movement through massage and rehabilitative exercise.
 

I work with orthopaedic conditions, treating injuries of the joints and muscles, as well as post-surgery rehabilitation. I use specific assessments and exercises to balance muscle strengths and weaknesses and can refer on to our wonderful physio when needed.

Leonie Douglas

I joined the team as a remedial and sports massage therapist. I was living in Australia and chose to do remedial and sports massage as a professional modality, completing my Diploma of Remedial Massage at Endeavour College of Natural Health, Perth WA April 2012. Since choosing this pathway I’ve been working with a wide range of musculoskeletal dysfunction, pain, injuries and associated conditions. 

 

I have over five years experience and completed additional training in Myotherapy at Melbourne Institute of Massage and Myotherapy, VIC May 2016. I'm a registered massage therapist here in NZ and I’ve been back living here since Dec 2016. In my spare time I enjoy exploring the outdoors and I'm passionate about continued professional development.  

Belinda Moeller

I have always been of service obtaining a Bachelor of Nursing straight out of secondary school working in Orthopaedics then District Nursing in the U.K. During my O.E I began working on my own spiritual development. I have received 1st Degree Reiki and have recently qualified with a Diploma in Massage. I have always believed natural health is the first port of call in my life and it keeps opening me up with joy, calm and healing. 

Angus Wishart

I am interested in creating a memorable massage experience for clients. 

I studied a Diploma in Relaxation and Wellness Massage down in Invercargill (NZ) at the Southern Institute of Technology. 

I take an intuitive, artistic angle with my massage treatments rather than being technically minded.  

 

Having also gained a History Degree at the University of Waikato, I enjoy being part of the historical legacy of massage in improving people's physical health and spiritual well-being. 

 

Angus is a caring and dedicated individual and provides a quality Relaxation Massage service.

Everybody has a purpose in this world, I believe mine is to assist and support others achieve better health and wellbeing through the various modalities of Massage. NZQA Certified Therapist, I continually add to my skill set with ongoing study and experience, so that I may be better equipped to work with each individual client, and together create the best treatment plan suited specifically for them.

 

Sam is also our receptionist extraordinaire and is the cheerful voice you will hear on the end of the phone line.

Romain Auclair

 I ended up in New Zealand after 3 years traveling the world by bicycle whilst I extended my knowledge to Swedish and Thai massages. I am from France and have a background of physiotherapy, specializing in sport rehabilitation and back injuries. In addition to my background, the practice of regular activities and yoga give me a good overview of the body’s needs.

 

From a gentle and fully relaxing to a more specific and remedial massage, I am happy to offer a combination of my massage techniques that would best suit your requirement.
