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.

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 spent a number of years working in New Zealand as a massage therapist and assistant
manager in spa resorts in the South Island.
Prior to that I achieved my Honours Degree in Sports
Massage and Exercise Therapy at the University of Derby in the UK. I also qualified in pregnancy
massage and am trained in deep tissue, remedial, relaxation (including hot stones) and sports
Sporting activity has always played a large part in my life as I qualified as an A.S.A
swimming coach in the UK and achieved a brown belt in Taekwondo.
This has helped focus and inform my own practice in particular around enabling physical mobility and wellbeing so that my clients can continue to enjoy and participate in their own sporting and exercise regimes

Looking after my own family & friends mental health is why I chose the path of massage as well as its benefits to heal and repair. Health and well-being is very important, especially in times of uncertainty and general day to day life.
In my treatments my aim is to relax the body as well as the mind to help rejuvenate and replenish the bodies natural healing properties.
Michelle gained her level 4 certificate in Relaxation Massage through the NZ College of Massage in 2014 and is currently studying further.
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.
