Gareth has worked as a Remedial Massage Therapist since 2010, after turning a ‘hobby’ into a job he genuinely loves. He specialises in soft tissue and sports injury massage, combined with breathing work to assist the body in releasing and healing using a holistic and preventative approach to health.
Gareth gained an honours degree in Applied Biology and worked within the pharmaceutical and health industry for many years before realising his calling lay elsewhere. He has trained in Massage Therapy at the NSW School of Massage and Nature Care College. He has also travelled extensively, adding to his massage skills and experience from the streets of Thailand to the market places of France.
At an endurance athlete training gym, he focused on helping clients achieve competition readiness, pre and post competition day treatment and ongoing high performance maintenance. In his work he helps co-ordinate rehabilitation plans covering a number of sporting and training injuries, soft tissue injury prevention and healthy lifestyle maintenance plans. This covers muscle tightness, muscle stretching, stabilisation, biomechanics and movement analysis with a treatment plan for every level of fitness.
For the last year, Gareth has specialised in Injury Prevention, Rehabilitation and Soft Tissue Manipulation, working alongside osteopaths to ensure clients have the best chance at living a full and healthy life. Gareth also offers sports taping services to reinforce joint stability especially for use on the sports field.
