What led you to Elevate?
Elevate is unique multimodality clinic with an exceptional focus on the patient. Working here is an opportunity to combine my experience and skills in postural correction and massage with a highly trained team of practitioners.
What are your core beliefs about wellness and health?
I believe that to reach your maximum health potential, you must not only eat healthily and exercise but look after the mind as well. I also believe it’s important to take the time to prioritise your health and wellbeing. Take responsibility for your health and injuries and allow the time to heal, rest and recover.
What mistakes do patients make?
People can live with pain (due to poor posture or injury for example), hoping that it will eventually go away. It is vital to seek professional assistance when experiencing pain. A visit to your health practitioner can help you manage any injury and prevent the pain from worsening, whether it can be acute or chronic.
What key health lessons do you like to impart to patients?
Posture! The ability to stand and sit correctly helps us work more effectively throughout the day. I always encourage patients to take control of how they use and move their bodies. My focus is to help my client to get rid of the body restrictions and restore the body’s natural postural balance.
What do you enjoy about your job?
I also enjoy combining in my treatments scientific and holistic approaches considering the whole body as one unit.
Tell us a little about your credentials?
I have a Diploma in Remedial Massage. I have also specialized in myofascial release and Body Structural Integration at Anatomy Trains Australia and New Zealand. I also build my knowledge by regularly attending courses on Somatic Experiencing®, which helps me to help my client with events that are overwhelming, and Oriental medicine and Traditional Japanese KI Shiatsu® therapy.
What are your extracurricular passions?
I continue to explore the principals of gravity, axis, spirals and relationships between fixed and flowing parts of the body, mind, and spirit, through daily practice in Aikido and “KI” cultivation.
