Remedial Massage Therapist

Emanuel Banakh

Emanuel has experience helping to enhance athletic performance as well as providing relief from the strains of sitting at a desk for extended periods of time.

After working as a tiler from a young age, Emanuel had seen how the constant hard physical labour was affecting the other workers on site as well as his own health. He decided to seek remedial massage therapy to improve his quality of life and efficiency at work. After just one treatment, he was amazed at the difference soft tissue therapy could make and realized how poorly he had been treating his own body.

With a bit of research, Emanuel started practicing massage on his family as well as using his newfound knowledge to help himself. During this time, Emanuel discovered his talent for locating and treating soft tissue-related issues. He would then go on to study for his qualification as a remedial massage therapist to help spread awareness of the human body and healthy functioning.

Emanuel has experience helping to enhance athletic performance as well as providing relief from the strains of sitting at a desk for extended periods of time. By utilising the arsenal of remedial techniques available to him, Emanuel creates a unique experience in his treatments that helps clients alleviate their aches and pains as well as finding improvement in their daily activities
On his days off from the clinic, you can find Emanuel coaching axe throwing professionally.

Remedial Massage Therapist

Tegan Jackson

Practicing as a Massage Therapist for the past 12 years has been (and continues to be) a great privilege, as I get to do what I love in order to help my patients do what they love.

Practicing as a Massage Therapist for the past 12 years has been (and continues to be) a great privilege, as I get to do what I love in order to help my patients do what they love. This harmonious relationship is a pleasure to be a part of.

Holding both a Cert IV in Massage Therapies and a Diploma of Remedial Massage in Advanced Rehabilitation, my passion for expanding my knowledge and progressing in my field is ongoing, as I strive to be the best I can be for my patients, so they can achieve their therapeutic goals.

I believe that the craft of Remedial Massage works on many positive levels of the human experience for both the patient and practitioner; it’s a unique practice, as it involves not only a tailored physical application of treatment, in order to reach therapeutic goals, but also a natural exchange of positive energies between practitioner and patient, creating a nourishing and essentially relaxing experience. In essence, massage to me is about connecting with another human being and their body’s experience. In this way I can help them to achieve a natural state of balance and harmony in their body.
