Remedial Massage Therapist

After a rewarding career as an environmental scientist, Shaan expanded her biological expertise into the human realm. Shaan’s passion for human movement and function and the intimate role it serves in our daily lives inspired her return to study and extend her capacity and knowledge to include remedial and sports massage therapy. For many years as a qualified Australian canoeing & kayak instructor, she has helped individuals achieve their personal and fitness goals and now enjoys applying the combined experiences of both fields.

Sea kayaking is a personal passion of hers and she loves introducing people to the joy of kayaking within the beauty of Sydney’s own natural outdoor clinic! Shaan has been lucky to have had some amazing ocean adventures including the first female solo crossing of Bass Strait by Kayak.

Shaan’s approach is to apply the art of therapeutic touch to engage you in your own self-healing by expanding and refining your proprioceptive sense and options for movement. Through her bodywork and coaching experiences, she has come to understand the many benefits of increasing our body sense and the role it plays in every aspect of our lives – whether you’re training for a high level sporting event, coping with the strain of an office environment or recovering from injury. Shaan believes that the essence of healing lies in an ability to listen, observe, and to perceive beyond the ability to apply technique. Applying good technique is one aspect of a great massage, knowing what your body needs to reach your goal is what provides long-term value to any massage treatment. Shaan applies a manual release therapy by intuitively blending deep tissue, myofascial, trigger point, and active release techniques to restore movement and energy in your body.
