Each therapist runs their own business with most being referral based – if you can’t find a time that suits you to see them at Niggles & Knots please contact them directly (or contact the clinic and ask us to pass a message on to them to call you back) to discuss other treatment options and locations as some therapists choose to provide treatments elsewhere as well.

Lucy has been practicing full time as a remedial massage therapist and reflexologist for several years, and previously worked with Cecilia for several years at her previous clinic (so Cecilia was very excited to welcome this wonderful therapist to our team in 2015!). Her passion for helping her clients achieve health through integrated natural and conventional therapies led her to naturopathic studies, and then in 2015 to take on a nursing degree. Lucy completed her degree mid 2017, and secured a graduate position at the Mater. While she hopes to return to massage in future, she has taken a hiatus until further notice while she settles into her new career as a full-time nurse.
