    Pathway to the Present


    Since I was a kid I was always involved in sports such as swimming, soccer, Chinese kung fu and many more. I love playing and competing, and like many sports people I had my fair share of injuries. This made me realise the importance of body mechanics and how the rest and recovery phase is an essential part of playing and competing in the sports you love.
    I finally understood that if you let the body rest and recover and help it’s innate ability to do this with some excellent massage, you can enjoy your sport for longer, and go through less injury.

    What are my treatments like?


    My type of treatment will be focus on realignment of the natural body posture and I enjoy working with athletes suffering from hypertonic (tense) muscles to office workers that are always stuck in the same position for hours. My goal is to release tension and improve overall flexibility and strength. I use a lot of trigger point work along with pin and stretch, mfr and activation exercises. My natural style is firm, but I will always moderate to suit the client and gain feedback on the pressure.

    What do I love about massage? 


    The opportunity to meet new people from all kinds of fields which increases my view of the world and my knowledge of how to work with people to provide relief and education. I really enjoy seeing someone improve their quality of life with my treatments.

    Pathway to the Present

    I have been an athlete since I can remember. I started playing sport as soon as I learned how to run. My passion for sport lead me to an obsession of the human body and a curiosity of how far the limits of this beautifully complex biological mechanism could be pushed. Like all athletes I learned by injuring myself (not once but multiple times) that it certainly has a limit, I did 4 years as a rifleman in the Royal Australian Regiment and I’ve also competed as a strongman athlete in both state and national competitions, having success in both and also their associated injuries.

    What are my treatments like?

    I adopt a Yin-Yang philosophy for my massage. My treatments combine both the clinical and relaxation for all of its broad benefits. During my treatments I draw upon my all my experiences as an athlete/soldier and my sound understanding of human anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, sport and human psychology and of course strength and conditioning. I am also trained in Ka Huna Massage which allows me to work on your body on a cellular and if necessary, energetic level. My goal as a remedial therapist is to be as holistic as possible in my approach. I will be your “remedy” for whatever problem you present to me. If I cannot help you, I will happily refer you to the best practitioner who can. I enjoy working with people from all areas, office workers, parents, athletes. 

    What do I love about massage?

     

    What I love about massage is that it feels like an honour to be apart of THE oldest healing modality that we know of. Before potions and alchemy, before pills and surgery. We healed each other through touch. Now the science has caught up. And it is still one of the most amazing healing treatments the world has to offer.

    Conditions I can help with

    • Muscular pain and tightness
    • Sciatica 
    • Incorrect posture and impaired movement
    • Overuse injuries such as rsi and tendonitis
    • Reduced range of motion due to muscular or joint restrictions

    • Cervicogenic headaches
    • Tennis Elbow
    • Neurological pain incl. pins, tingling, numbness
    • Sport injuries

    What are my treatments like?

    Following a functional medicine model of treatment, I look for underlying imbalances  such as sleep, diet, exercises, stress, social environment etc. I also believe that collaboration between a client and a therapist is very important for the achievement of the desired health goals. 

    As a Myotherapist I can draw upon advanced skills such as joint mobilization, myofascial release, IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), neural manipulation, taping, dry needling and electro needling, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Vagus nerve stimulation, exercise therapy, functional movement assessment and prescription.

    I believe that part of a being a therapist includes educating the client on how to eliminate existing symptoms and how to prevent future injuries. Therefore, my treatments continue outside of the clinic walls by encouraging you to cultivate body awareness and by performing a prescribed exercise program and following up with you consistently. This is where my experience as a yoga teacher is very useful.

    Pathway to the Present

    Having been a dancer for most of my life I’m very familiar with the aches, pains and general ‘ugh’ feeling that comes from having tired muscles and an overworked body. Alongside other treatment options remedial massage was always something that I turned to when my body needed a bit of love, and sparked my interest early on to experience the other side of the therapist/client relationship. Being in the creative arts industry has also fed a desire to facilitate and establish genuine connections with other people, and knowing how much my therapists have helped me, it’s a goal of mine to be able to do this for others. Therefore when I came across the Remedial Massage course at Q Academy I felt that I’d found a way to combine my interest and love of movement, the human body, and people into one. I enjoy working with athletes both professional and amateur.

    What are my treatments like?

    The  aim of treatment is to relieve tension, decrease pain, and alleviate any stress you may be dealing with. I use specific assessment, to identify the cause of the issue, and then apply techniques such as muscle release, mfr, rigger point,  stretching, and joint mobilisation to relieve pain and increase mobility  I enjoy meeting and working with people from all walks of life, and believe that using both a thorough hands on approach and self-maintenance program (whatever that may mean for you) is the key. I can help with neck pain and headaches, shoulder pain, arm and wrist pain, low back pain, sports prep and recovery. I am currently learning pregnancy massage and will be able to provide this shortly.

    What do I love about massage?

    Having spent years being hyper aware of how well (or not) my body was moving, it’s amazing to see how much more freedom can be restored and discomfort relieved with massage. Since touch can be so beneficial both mentally and emotionally, as well as physically, it’s great to think that it can become part of someone’s all round support system.

    Pathway to the Present

    When I was younger I gave my relatives neck and shoulder massages to help ease their pains, it just felt like the right thing to do. I enjoyed the feeling of helping people and massage seemed to be a natural career choice.

    After completing my Remedial Diploma in 2011 I naturally gravitated to a style that was both Remedial and Therapeutic. I added myofascial cupping to help my clients with chronic muscle tension and hot stone & Balinese massage for a deeply relaxing experience.

    I particularly enjoyed Pregnancy massage and felt that my pregnant clients would benefit from Lymphatic treatments as well. I found that by incorporating Lymphatic Drainage into the treatments clients had great results. I included more advanced Lymphatic training so I could help those with more complicated Lymphatic issues.

    What are my treatments like?

    Having a combination of Remedial, Pregnancy, Lymphatic and Balinese techniques allows me to create a treatment that is both effective in reducing or eliminating pain and deeply relaxing as well. 

    Pregnancy Massage – I can help with

    • Lumbar and sacral pain
    • Aching legs and feet
    • Odema
    • Breathing restriction
    • Aching neck, shoulders and back
    • Anxiety & tension

    Manual Lymphatic Drainage & Lymphatic Massage

    • Odema – after surgery such as liposuction, from prolonged sitting, poor diet,
    • Fatigue – especially after repeated colds, flus and infections,
    • Lupus, chronic fatigue, digestive issues
    • Lymphoedema – primary or secondary,
    • Node removal when drainage to another nodal area is required
    • Compression garments and bandaging for more complicated cases

    Who would benefit from my treatments?

    Anyone who wants some support throughout their pregnancy with a regular treatment, clients who suffer stress, anxiety, depression and need a treatment that combines both remedial and relaxation, and those suffering lymphatic conditions are my best clients. Also if you just need a good general deep tissue to work out those aches, pains and knots, I am your therapist!

    What do I love about Massage?

    I love how rewarding it feels to see a decrease in stress and tension that clients have been putting up with. I appreciate how massage can improve your mood and make movement in your body a lot easier, and as a career it is satisfying to know that I have helped someone enjoy their day and their life more.

  • Roger Morelli
    Roger Morelli
    Myotherapist & Senior Remedial Therapist

    Roger Morelli

    Pathway to the Present

    In 1994 I had a severe car accident that required four years of surgery to recover from.

    My 24 year rehab journey has exposed me to many fine Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, Exercise Physiologists and Chiropractors.  For over a decade before my studies in health care commenced, I was being treated by an amazingly talented and skilled Massage Therapist.  This man kept me walking and functioning so well, that people have troubles believing that my limitations are as severe as they are.

    I believe that my style is unique and effective because it has been formed from the experience of seeing what has worked to take away my own pain and restore my confidence. I have also been fortunate to have worked in some of the best rehab clinics in Brisbane and have been mentored and critiqued by many of my role models.

    What are my treatments like?

    I am a sensitive and determined therapist.  I am able to adopt my style to the needs of any clinical situation and a  If you are suffering from a chronic condition I am a good choice for you. I enjoy honing my skills & knowledge to help with specialist areas such as tmj, bell’s palsy, morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis as well as general pain conditions and postural insufficiencies.

    As a MYOTHERAPIST – My tool kit includes first class diagnostic and assessment capabilities, Cold Laser Therapy, Swedish and Relaxation styles, Pregnancy Massage, Myofascial Release and Trigger-point work, Corrective Exercise, Complex Stretching Protocols and Muscle Energy Techniques, Myofascial Inversion Pressure Cupping or “Cupping”, Dry Needling, TENS and Electro Therapy and Expert Deep Tissue Remedial Massage work.

    My style can be nurturing, powerful or anywhere in between.

    What do I love about myotherapy?

    Myotherapy empowers clients to address the cause of their problems – not just their symptoms.  Myotherapy involves rigorous assessment, manual therapy and usually some level of corrective exercise to empower people to reduce their dysfunction themselves.  Emphasising self-empowerment means that ultimately MYOTHERAPY is a cost effective approach to pain and physical dysfunction.

    What do I love about massage?

    I love that massage affects both our physical symptoms and our emotional well-being.

    My therapist has helped me walk pain free, taken away headaches and shoulder tension as well as lifted me from the depths of despair.

    This is what I love about massage and Myotherapy.

    Gregor Hribar Remedial, Pregnancy, Lymphatic & Reflexology

    Pathway to the Present

    I’m really passionate about my work and helping people in a holistic way so I’m always looking to expand my knowledge and upgrade my skills. The most important thing I’ve learned throughout my life and my career is that our bodies are intelligent and they have innate ability to communicate whatever is out of balance. They also have a remarkable ability to heal and repair as long as we give them the right environment to thrive. Growing up I loved helping people and massage was something that was present in my everyday life. Most of my family works in healthcare as physiotherapists, massage therapists or nurses so I was always exposed to alternative healing techniques from all over the world. I would have to say that I’ve learned the most from my aunt, a Reflexologist of 30 years experience. 

    From 2012 to 2015 I had a successful massage salon in Europe.  In 2012 I had an opportunity to work on European veteran Handball championship in Ljubljana (Slovenia) with sportsmen where I expended my knowledge and achieved great results. In 2015 I accepted a challenge to move to Australia and continue working as massage therapist. In 2016 I received my Australian Diploma of Remedial Massage and since then I have expended my knowledge on different fields, including an opportunity to work with Redcliffe Dolphins Rugby Club. My passion is helping elite athletes and I had a pleasure to work with rugby players, soccer players, marathon runners and other athletes with great results. I’m currently still working with and supporting a top soccer player for Brisbane Roar. 

     

    What are my treatments like?

     

    In my treatments I provide different techniques and massage styles:

    • Deep Tissue Massage
    • Relaxation Body Massage
    • Trigger Point Massage
    • Pregnancy Massage
    • Lymphatic Drainage Massage
    • Sports Massage
    • Reflexology Massage
    • Frozen Shoulder Massage
    • Tennis Elbow Massage
    • Hot Stone Massage
    • AromaTouch Technique
    • Shiatsu Massage
    • Sciatica Relief
    • Cupping

    I believe knowledge equals empowerment and as a therapist I feel it is my responsibility to share my knowledge with people so they can empower themselves to live a healthier and pain free life on all levels.

    What is Reflexology and how does it help?

    Did you know that your feet reflect every organ in your body? Well they do and Reflexology supports their healthy function.

    Reflexology is an ancient natural therapy that addresses pain and promotes healing and wellness throughout the whole body by applying pressure to related “reflex” points in the feet, hands, or ears. Each of these corresponds with an organ or part of your body. There are 86 main reflex points on each of your feet. When a part of your body is unbalanced or diseased, crystalline or granular deposits may build-up at the corresponding reflex point on your foot. These points may feel tender, sore or painful to touch. By gently stimulating and applying pressure to these points, it helps to reduce the congestion or blockages in the affected areas of your body, as well as stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system.

    What do I love about massage?

    I love massage because our bodies are like a doorway to our inner world and they can tell us a lot about our physical, emotional and energetic state and by applying different techniques and listening to the body react we can find solutions to resolve the problems. Helping people is my passion and when I see improvement in client’s life it gives me immense pleasure to continue doing what I love doing anyway. Finding the source of pain and working with clients to realise it and supporting them in changing their health goals so they can truly thrive is why I love the work that I do.

    Nola Welling

    Pathway to the Present

    My first experience of massage left me relaxed, calm and at peace. I knew that I wanted to provide that for others so I did a 3 month Swedish Relaxation course with an excellent teacher in my early 20’s. After much travel and a few failed uni attempts I decided to pursue more massage training in 2003 and undertook 3 levels of Ka Huna training. Ka Huna really built the foundation of massage for me and I still incorporate many aspects of it in my massage style today. 

    As I was training I saw a chair massage business for sale at my local shopping centre and away I went. After doing mobile corporate massage for 5 years I felt I wanted something more and chose to start a clinic in Elizabeth Street in 2008. I completed Diploma of Remedial Massage, Certificate of Pregnancy Massage and the clinic kept growing. In 2015 our unique old building was sold and so we moved to our current lovely  location. 

    What are my treatments like?

    I like to combine the analytical side of Remedial Massage with the intuitive flow of Ka Huna. Ka Huna uses long flowing strokes, limb movement and is generally firm but also very relaxing. It is a style that flushes the muscles and lymph as well as providing a deep treatment. You let your hands feel and move with the tension in the body.

    Remedial provides a counterbalance through analytical assessment of muscle function, movement and restriction. I find that people respond well to a combined treatment as many are in pain and tight due to stress as well as physical reasons.

    I believe that massage can be firm and a bit painful when needed and also soothing and relaxing in the same session. I always want a client to come out feeling more relaxed and centred than when they went in, but also feel that something useful happened for them. 

    Who will benefit from my treatments?

    Anyone in pain, stressed, depressed, anxious or feeling just generally tight and fatigued will benefit. I will assess and test, use Remedial techniques for specific pain and restriction including trigger point, mfr and met. Long deep strokes from Ka Huna help ease fascia, soothe the nervous system and promote the relaxation response. 

    What do I love about massage?

    I think that caring respectful touch is a very important part of good mental, emotional and physical health. I love seeing stress & pain leave a person and for them to walk out feeling as though they can cope better with the pressures of life. That is always a satisfying feeling.

    Pathway to the Present

    I’ve always been a bookworm, and this love of books led me to a career as a librarian. After a few years of working in public libraries I realised being chained to a desk wasn’t fulfilling for me – and was in fact detrimental to both my physical and mental health. After taking a step back from library work I understood that my passion truly lies in understanding human movement and health. This interest was reflected in both the types of books I was always reading and the many different sports and activities I was involved in. Studying Remedial Massage Therapy was the immediate obvious choice for a career shift as it allows me to nerd out about the human body while also having a hands-on approach to helping people.

    What are my treatments like?

    I qualified as a Remedial Massage Therapist through the Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF), which has given me additional sports training knowledge. This training allows me to work closely with sports coaches, personal trainers, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals to get my clients back on track to meeting their goals.

    Utilising a wide range of remedial techniques, massage sessions with me can involve a lot of movement on the table but will still have you feeling relaxed. I enjoy working with clients of all backgrounds but especially with athletes of all levels (including the weekend warrior), focusing on recovery and performance.

    What do I love about massage?

    It is incredibly rewarding to see my clients reach their goals knowing that massage therapy has been key to their success. Being able to relieve pain and tension on the table is rewarding in and of itself, but I also love that I can educate my clients about how their body works and what they can do to keep it moving well.
