A word from Sam

“As a keen sportsman I have had my fair share of injuries and ailments. Massage has been one aspect in my recovery process that allowed me to regain my general daily function along with getting back to or contiunue the sports I enjoy.
As I knew first hand the postive effects massage can have and with my increasing desire to understand the physical body I wanted to learn more and be able to help others and so began my professional career into this field. I have been very fortunate to use my skills and qualifications to travel the world and maintain my equal passion for surfing, snowbaording and AFL.
I love the feeling of making a client’s day go from meagre to enjoyable and seeing them get the best for their body with either daily tasks or the sports they enjoy”.
