- Massage Therapists
Nina — Remedial and Sports Massage Therapist
Nina has almost 20 years of experience in Sports Massage and stretching.
Nina is always eager to learn more about the human body in order to help her clients. While her massages may not be for the faint-hearted, she does have a lot of elderly clients.
Nina also gives a great lymphatic drainage massage and has a strong sense of family.
Mitch — Remedial Massage Therapist
Mitch has a strong rehab-based focus on his remedial massages and constantly seeks new knowledge in this area.
Utilising a lot of trigger point work, he will work out your knots and tight muscles as firm or as gentle as you would like, in a targeted manner.
In his spare time, Mitch can usually be found with his nose in both fiction and non-fiction books.
- Admin Team
Julie — Practice Manager
Julie has been a valuable part of the Front Desk team for over 2 years.
She enjoys running, macro photography and leading a healthy lifestyle by example.
While Julie came to our clinic with a wide variety of managerial experience, she has had an interest in natural therapies since she was a teenager and how natural therapies can complement conventional medicine.
Rosie — Chiropractic Assistant
Rosie's cheerful smile will always greet you warmly when you walk into the clinic.
Her nurturing, motherly nature makes her the perfect person for our team in addition to her many years working in customer service.
Rosie loves to set herself challenges so you'll often see her pounding the pavement with the Plainland Pacers or contorting herself during Core Restore Classes.
Mandy — Chiropractic Assistant
Mandy brings enthusiastic, genuine and friendly service to our team.
Mandy also has a strong sense of family and organises our team with super efficiency.
Her quick humour will make you chuckle and she always looks amazing due to her previous career as a hairdresser.
