    Pathway to the Present

    I’m from Indonesia and currently studying Osteopathy. I love the Osteopathic concepts about body as a unit and how it has the ability to heal itself. I’m fascinated with body works, movement and therapy. I spend my leisure time doing muay thai, hiking, trail running, gymnastics, calisthenics and yoga. I did yoga teacher training in India and have been teaching in Bali and Darwin. Movements and exercises gave me awareness of body mechanisms, joints and muscle function. I was introduced to Thai massage and stretches from acro yoga practice. It’s left a strong influence on me and has become my motivation to study other therapeutic massages. My clients and yoga students are my inspiration. Having met clients with certain problems enriches my experience. It is a challenge to find the best solutions, and help with pain management. 

    What are my treatments like?

    I find it is essential to communicate with clients, realizing everyone is unique and different. I personalize my treatments using certain skills and knowledge depending on individual’s need. The elements I might incorporate during treatments: Swedish relaxation, Thai, remedial, accupressure, trigger point, reflexology, hot stone, lymphatic, cupping, myofascia release, chair massage, pregnancy massage, sports (pre-event/post-event) & deep tissue. 

    What do I love about massage?

    Massage is a natural way to recover without using medicine. I love receiving different styles of massages & understand how effective they can be in recovery. Massage is an art of healing.

    Pathway to the Present

    I have a profound passion in helping people, especially with being involved in their recovery. I understand that the path to recovery, especially after a traumatic incident can be difficult so I want to be able to extend my hand out and contribute in a positive way. In 2009, I began my journey as a physiotherapist in my hometown. I worked as the head physiotherapist for 6 years and got to work with clients of all ages in achieving their recovery goals. I worked with clients suffering from a variety of medical conditions such as cognitive, low muscle tone, lack of mobility, developmental and coordination disorders. I was also able to support Army personnel in physical rehabilitation.

    In 2019, I moved to Australia in pursuit of expanding my knowledge in treatment. Here, I discovered that remedial massage, when combined with my physiotherapy treatments, can greatly improve recovery. My overall goal is to help you find the cause of the problem, treat it and improve your health and quality of life by using my acquired knowledge and skills. I hope that we can work together to provide you with the satisfaction with the result that you hope to receive and that I for my part hope to provide you in a very professional way.

    What are my treatments like?

    I effectively combine both remedial massage and physiotherapy techniques to assist with pain and muscle tension. I also utilise techniques such as relaxation, trigger pointing, deep tissue, reflexology, Chinese cupping.

    I can help with conditions such as:

    • Tendinopathy, ligament and radiculopathy
    • Occupational disease (e.g. cervical pain, low back pain, carpal tunnel and frozen shoulder among others)
    • Restriction in the range of joint mobility due to joint or bone injury such as joint dislocations and ankylosis
    • Acute and chronic pain
    • Sciatica

    The use of tests for physical evaluation and initial diagnosis as well as rehabilitation techniques and pain management such as electrostimulation and physical modalities among others. Prescription of exercises that include passive / active stretching techniques, isometric and isotonic exercises and manual mobilization of joints and soft tissues.

    I also involve rehabilitation techniques used in therapeutic massage such as restorative massage, deep tissue, myofascial release, cupping, and reflexology.

    A fundamental part of the treatment is the joint work with the patient and the follow-up in the treatment to see the expected results. Since at the end of the treatment the idea is to continue with an exercise plan at home in combination with the treatment carried out in the clinic.

    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

    Medicine, Therapy and Health seem to have been at the forefront of my experiences as a child, teen and early 20s era of my life. Having had two kidney transplants and a myriad of other procedures and surgeries and so on, I naturally became attracted by the idea of being on the other side of the patient/doctor spectrum.

    Having worked in a Microbiology laboratory in Brisbane for 8 years, in which there was a vast separation between the patient and my duties, I never felt satisfied, nor did I feel like I was making a difference, or helping people.

    Having come across the Remedial Massage course at Endeavour College of Natural Health, I immediately felt like I was on my way to finding a career based more in the mode of service and care than just working for the sake of having money.

    Since completing my Diploma I have studied in a few different areas: Dry Needling, Reflexology and Meditation of different varieties. My goal for the future would be to move more into the Wellness Coaching side of things.

    What Are My Treatments Like?

    Utilising my knowledge of anatomy and muscle pain referral, I try to properly identify the reason behind the pain, and how to fix it. Due to my extensive history in the medical world both as patient and practitioner, I have a decent knowledge of medical terminology, diseases and the necessary people to talk to about such issues.

    And finally drawing from my immersion in Yoga Philosophy and Meditation, I try my best to help the client be more mindful of their body and mind’s warning signs and implement practical methods and routines to counteract them.

    What Do I Love About Massage?

    Massage has provided a way for me to be of service to others. To trust someone with their body can be a daunting thing in the beginning, but through the sessions you can really develop a trusting, professional friendship with a lot of people.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
