 Shae KarringtenShae Karringten portrait - Remedial Massage Therapist

Shae is an experienced remedial massage therapist who has trained both in Australia and in the UK.   She uses a variety of techniques in her treatments, including cupping and dry needling, and in 2014 received her qualification in kinesiology. Shae joined our team not long after in late 2014 and we’ve loved having her work with us ever since. Her massage style is quite unique as her training path has been so different to therapists purely trained in Australia, and is influenced by her kinesiology work as well as her primary drive to get to the cause of your pain and solve it.  Shae’s treatments will usually include a lot of very specific firm point-work along with active movement from the client to assist with release of the problem muscles and tissues. Her prior career in an office has given her great insight to the musculoskeletal issues associated with it however she also enjoys treating athletes and dancers. Her specialties are the pelvis, lower back and glutes. Read more about Shae here.

We are a small local business and rely on local support. 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.
