Ann ApolloniAnn Apalloni Massage Therapist

Ann was a research scientist in her former life, however after training in a range of massage skills and practicing part time for over six years, she chose to move to become a full time massage therapist, and we were lucky enough to have her join the Niggles & Knots team in 2014. Ann’s unique style of massage comes from a combination of her remedial massage training and her true passion for Visionary Craniosacral Work ®. She can capably treat a full range of musculoskeletal concerns including neck pain, back pain and head aches. 

Hours Available Ann finished at Niggles & Knots just before Christmas 2020. She’ll be offering treatments (primarily visionary craniosacral work) at her own clinic from late Jan 2021, located inside Bardon Councelling Center.

Lucy Bankslucy banks

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. She rejoined the team for a period to treat on her days off nursing, however mid-2019 we were sad to say good bye to Lucy again as she has decided to spend her down-time with partner and puppy dogs. Lucy occasionally treats returning clients (those that have already seen her regularly at Niggles or elsewhere) at her home, please contact our practice manager Cecilia on 0423 779 960 and she will happily pass on your contact details to Lucy so Lucy can get in touch and confirm if / when she is available to treat you.

Conversely, we love to support our local neighbours – here’s a list of businesses we recommend from personal experience. We really appreciate the support we’ve had from the local community since we opened in 2013, so we enjoy giving back as regularly as we can – we get involved in  community events as often as we can.
