Our Massage Therapists
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.
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.
I also take private Pilates sessions at the Clinic and run classes throughout the week.
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.
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.
I have a passion for massage and it has been part of who I am for the last 26 years. My aim as a therapist is to help restore the balance of the body and mind. To help alleviate discomfort and help you on your journey to wellness and a better quality of life, through a variety of massage techniques, such as Trigger point, Reflexology, Sports, Deep Tissue and Relaxation.
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.
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.
