Please contact Anne Rogers (03) 313 5333 for more information on any of the therapies above.


Myofascial Release (MFR)

Fascia wraps every cell in the body. It is like the body’s glad wrap.Releasing the fascia has a positive impact on muscle tone and posture.

Fascia also reflects the patterns of daily use and habits over time. For example a golf swing can be seen in a neutral posture.




Craniosacral Therapy (CST)

CranioSacral Therapy is a profound therapy that helps the body to release physical restrictions from fascia and mental and emotional stress. Physically it releases fascia and helps the body to relax.

For impacts CST is excellent to remove the effects of an injury, such as a fall and can be used immediately. Emotionally the body is able to let go of concerns that can cause the holding of stress and pain in the tissues.

It is based on the system from the head to sacrum via the spinal column which has its own rhythm as do our other body systems.



Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

MLD treats the lymphatic system. It is beneficial for many things, as it affects the whole system even by treating the main area of concern.

MLD can help with: detoxification, fluid retention, carpal tunnel, acute injuries, headaches and migraines, sinuses, pre and post surgical conditions, and general well being.

It stimulates the lymphatic and the immune systems.

For conditions that require specific treatment, these will be referred out. I now only use MLD for wellbeing and minor conditions due to the other modalities that I incorporate into my work.



Neuromuscular Treatment Massage (NMT)

Neuromuscular Treatment is a type of massage that stimulates individual muscles to improve performance and maximizing good function and posture.

It is calming, relaxing and therapeutic.
