With over 15 years experience as a physiotherapist, Therese’s practice of holistic health deepened with her own journey into yogic lifestyle and mindfulness meditation since 2009 as well as the teaching of these methods. Since then her array of bodywork has broadened and taken her from rural Australia around the world to learn and evolve her heart-centred practice along the way. The key point of any session with Therese is deep relaxation, a state from which we can more easily connect with the innate wisdom within to go through the healing journey (life!) with awareness, compassion and connection.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Lymphatic Drainage and Lymph Activation
A light, rhythmic technique using a repetitive pumping motion to increase lymph circulation throughout the body and techniques to clear the main lymph nodes.
Chi Nei Tsang (Abdominal Energy Detox Massage)
From the Thai tradition, with roots in Taoism, this massage combines deep touch, breath and vocalisation to activate internal organs and energy meridians. It is a powerful cleansing on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This is a relatively active therapy and can be uncomfortable at times, but it often leaves you in a state of expansion and elation such that you want more! Great for abdominal and pelvic conditions and emotional release. A more gentle and equally as effective option is available in times of detox, illness or recovery.
(Booking notes: No eating 2 hours before the massage. Must eat within 30 mins after the massage.)
Craniosacral therapy uses light touch to tune into the rhythms of the central nervous system. In this biodynamic approach you can relax into a safe space where your body is given the opportunity to re-attune to a state of balance and harmony in accordance with the innate wisdom of your being. You may experience deep relaxation and awareness of movements in fluids and tissues, heat, tingling, emotional release and energy movement. This is beneficial for many conditions including headaches, spinal pain, nerve disorders, psychological or emotional issues and times of change.
Emotional Release & Balance – 1.5 – 2 hours
This is a specialised combination of bodywork to assist awareness and release of emotions. A safe space is created in which you can relax, open and listen deeply to yourself. We allow for the intuition of your body/mind to guide the session. Typically it will involve a combination of abdominal chi detox massage (chi nei tsang) and craniosacral balancing, with lymphatic, deep tissue or relaxation massage depending on your current needs. This session may also include talking, sound/voice therapy, movement and breathing practices. It is advisable to have a quiet and nourishing day/night after your session.
