Dip Remedial Massage
Member of Australian Association of Massage Therapists
Hi, my name is Kimberley and I trained at Q Academy in Brisbane in 2009 where I received a Diploma of Remedial Massage. After graduating I undertook further studies in Cupping, Myofascial Cupping, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Hot Stones Therapy. Immediately upon graduating I started working in the Brisbane CBD but found I’d rather work close to home and spend more time with clients than commuting, which in turn brought me to Northside Therapies!
Obviously, I didn’t just start where I am today but my journey began many years ago while I was living in the USA. I began by getting my undergraduate degree in Dental Hygiene and happily practiced for many years but found that there was something missing…I just didn’t know what it was yet. Over time, days spent bent over at awkward angles caused quite a number of back problems, headaches, and the like and I found that massage helped me a great deal. I began to be interested in massage when I found I could help my own patients manage their headaches and jaw pain with it after taking a course in head and neck massage designed for those of us in dentistry.
Personally, I have dealt with headaches and back pain most of my life and so I can relate with what my clients are experiencing each and every day. I believe that this makes me a better therapist; certainly it makes me an understanding one.
I have quite a few “tools” I use to help my clients with whatever problems they are having and feel confident that I can help you, too. I usually start by assessing each new client quickly to determine the best course of action, then go on to massage either the entire body (for general relaxation) or work on a specific area to address the worst issues.
In the times we live in, stress makes a HUGE impact on all of our lives. Stress kills our peace of mind, our health, and our relationships. Massage can help relieve stress, reduce blood pressure, relieve headaches, improve muscles tone, get rid of soreness, remove toxins from the body, and give us a much better outlook on life
I look forward to seeing you as my client!
