Jo graduated from New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine with a Diploma in Wellbeing and Relaxation Massage. This is in addition to her specific certificates in Sports Massage Therapy and Advance Sports Massage Therapy.
Jo is keen to know as much about the anatomy and physiology of the body as possible in order to make her best placed to offer therapies that will help her clients with injury recovery, muscle tension release, pre sports warm up, post sports flushing and of course stress relief and relaxation. Our wellbeing is ultimately important and all too often we put ourselves last whilst looking after others first.
Jo is a keen runner with 3 marathons and countless half marathons under her belt. Paired with 30-day challenges for strength, she is strong and offers variable massage pressures to suit her client’s preferences and needs.

There are many specialist providers that offer additional support for you and your family members following a diagnosis of cancer.
Our cancer rehabilitation physiotherapists, and lymphoedema therapists have undertaken additional training; they are certified to provide individualised care to these specific populations.
Remember your health insurance provider may include cover for physiotherapy or oncology massage services, also we accept Under the Canopy vouchers as provided by Canopy Cancer Care.
These services may be useful to you, you can ask your therapist for more information or check the websites provided in the link below:
This is different to providing massage alone. Certified Lymphoedema therapists are trained to assess the body site that has the issue and to identify other factors that may be contributing to your lymphoedema. This includes incorporating self-management strategies such as exercise, skin care, and what type of compression would best suit the affected area, we can also refer to nutritionists and counsellors to help you regain control and make lifestyle changes. We assist you in preventing and managing exacerbations, along with communicating with the other members of your health care team, including your GP, nurse specialist, oncologist, and surgeon to ensure your treatment is both safe and effective.
