At the age of 24 during an Aussie rules football game I damaged my right knee, cartilages and ligaments. After 4 years of various treatments, I was lucky enough to be sent to an Osteopath by the name of David Vivian Jones who, for the first time in many years, helped my body feel normal and started giving me an understanding of what the body goes through and why. My interests and need regarding rehabilitation and massage therapy grew, so I went to Nature Care College and completed a diploma of remedial massage with electives of Swedish massage, Chinese massage, sports medicine and some lymphatic massage.
In 1994 I started working for David Vivian Jones, Osteopath, assisting him in around 18,000 massages until 2001 . In those eight years my knowledge of the human body and my clinical experience became immense and in 2001 I opened my own clinic in Woollahra. With approximately another 5,000 massages I’ve performed over the years on top of the ones for the osteopath, I’m now more experienced than ever and I still enjoy helping to take pain away from people with my hands, assisting them to a level of homeostasis by using all the techniques I’ve learnt in Muscular Skeletal Corrective Therapy
