My massage journey began when I started experiencing sciatic issues from sitting too long in an office as a software developer. I used Chinese massage along with yoga and nutrition to totally heal my sciatic issues. After my recovery I was keen to be able to help other people with their body issues and I started searching for a course that would allow me to deliver a transformative experience to my clients.

The first course I took was in Melbourne in 2009 and was run by one of my massage mentors Terry Masson (who runs Raynor Massage Canada). I completed the diploma course in Raynor Massage with Terry and it was an amazing experience with a great bunch of people. The next year I decided to further my massage training by completing the advanced diploma with Brandon Raynor himself in Vancouver, Canada. In 2014, I have also completed a Certificate IV of Massage Therapy at the Challenger Institute of Technology in Beaconsfield, Western Australia.

Since my initial training, I have worked as a massage therapist in Australia, Canada and Guatemala. I experience great joy from seeing the look in my client’s eyes after they come out of a treatment looking fresher, healthier and younger. I really believe a regular massage can fundamentally enhance a person’s life by activating the relaxation response (para-sympathetic nervous system) and allowing the body to heal itself more fully.

I am an active member of AAMT (Australian Association of Massage Therapists) and am registered with all major health funds.

I use only the best Tui Balms for my treatments.

I use only the best Azima Professional massage table.

I practice meditation and kriya yoga daily at my home.
