Shae Karringten Massage Therapist (Remedial Massage) & Kinesiologist

Shae Karringten portrait - Remedial Massage TherapistShae is an experienced remedial massage therapist who has trained both in Australia and in the UK.  She has long held an interest in bodywork and natural therapies, and started her studies into the area while living in the UK with some training in ka huna Hawaiian massage as well as an eclectic mix of healing techniques. After many years of living in many different places around the world, she finally found “home” in Brisbane, and retrained in Remedial Massage at Q Academy in 2012. She then spent three years working at No More Knots before we were lucky enough to have her join our team at the start of 2016

Shae uses a variety of techniques in her treatments, including cupping and dry needling. She naturally inclines toward offering a very specific firm trigger point technique combined with active movement from the client, particularly focusing on the hip flexors, glutes and pelvis, however she is happy to accommodate client requests.  Her prior career in an office has given her great insight to the musculoskeletal issues associated with office work however she also enjoys treating athletes and dancers. Her specialities are the lower back and hips.

Shae is also very passionate about the use of kinesiology for musculoskeletal and emotional health, and in 2014 received her Cert IV qualification in kinesiology followed by her Diploma of Kinesiology in 2015. She can at times incorporate some of the principles into a massage session, however the modality itself is quite different to “having a massage”, so she also offers full kinesiology sessions at Niggles & Knots. Shae is happy to explain the technique and benefits further, just chat to her about it next time you are in for an amazing massage with her.

Couldn’t be happier with the regular skilled massages for neck and back from Shae, at regular intervals over the last couple of years for a chronic medical condition. So helpful. The range of techniques have been perfectly pitched, and the ambience created, including soft music, are very conducive to relaxation.
