I am the owner operator of Carrara Massage Therapies and have been massaging for over 17 years now in various locations including the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Whitsundays and throughout Europe. Over this time I have worked in health food stores, gyms, resort spas, local fitness clubs and with elite athletes and sporting teams.
I work with the tennis every summer at the Brisbane International and throughout the year with AFL and NRL teams as well as any other sport that visits the Gold Coast. My most notable clients are the Australian Netball Diamonds and the no. 1 ranked tennis player in the world, Ashleigh (Ash) Barty. My main work these days though is at home around my family, servicing the public from the surrounding suburbs. I also offer mobile massage for those who prefer in home, at work set ups or who are unable to travel.
I have a sports background playing elite level tennis until I was 18, then had to stop due to injury. This is when I first studied massage and have never looked back! Instead of playing against my tennis idols on the court, I was able to massage them! I am a sport nut in general though- I love keeping fit and active, playing whatever I can, and spectating everything possible. My massage style is not your standard remedial massage but a sports remedial massage which I find highly effective.
I am also very passionate about doing things naturally, organically, and with the least amount of medical intervention possible. There is a strong focus on eliminating the need for harsh and extensive medications and surgeries- instead, helping the body to heal itself as it was designed. If you treat the cause and not the symptom, you will work towards removing the problem as opposed to a short term fix. A vegetarian with many vegan interests, any products used, fall within these beliefs too.
There is no hard selling or quick appointments that make you feel like just another number. If you pay for a 60 minute massage, you will get 60 minutes of hands on massage and my full attention for the whole treatment time. I am usually booked up 3-5 weeks in advance which shows I like to look after people and not just see them once and thats it. I have many repeat clients weekly, fortnightly, and monthly. So come and get the same massage that the best athletes in the world get! And help your body to get the most out of everyday, the natural way!
