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 knowledge to include remedial and sports massage therapy.
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. Shaan believes that the essence of healing lies in the ability to listen, observe and 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.
As a qualified Australian canoeing and kayak instructor, Shaan has helped individuals achieve their goals and now enjoys applying the combined experiences of both fields. Shaan’s kayaking accolades include being the first female to cross the Bass Strait solo by kayak.
