Anita completed her Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2012 at Sage Institute of Massage Therapy. She has gained a lot of experience working within sporting environments such as AFL and Rugby Union. She has assisted with pre and post event massage for Elite International Rugby teams, and currently works as the match day medic for a local Rugby team every Saturday. She has an ongoing passion assisting the players with injuries during the game and helping them with the rehab process to get them back to what they love doing.
In a clinical environment, Anita likes to get an understanding and work with her patients to get the best out of the treatment. She includes Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy, Dry Needling techniques and various stretching to compliment the massage. She has a holistic approach towards her treatments believing the whole body needs assessment, not just the symptom. Anita likes to treat postural imbalances and weaknesses, chronic headaches and sporting injuries.
Anita is a trained Pilates instructor and understands the value of stretching and strengthening key areas of the body to maintain the bodies’ alignment. She likes to use these techniques during her treatments to educate the patient on ways to improve their health and wellbeing. She also instructs a few classes per week at the Elwood clinic location.
Anita likes to stay active and thrives on team sports including touch rugby and Rugby 7’s whilst doing her own gym training to stay fit. Recently she has discovered the love of trail running and has entered herself in the Salomon Trail series for the winter months.
