Massage Therapy

Our massage therapist is Yolande.

Massage TherapyYolande gained her Diploma in Massage Therapy in 2000 from The Canterbury College of Natural Medicine. In Christchurch she had a busy Massage room in the old Clarendon Tower Health Club before moving to Torbay with her family.

She has a very broad range of interests in Massage and is constantly reading and attending courses to learn more. Yolande is a great believer in integrating Massage into your life as an intervention rather than an expense.

Benefits of Massage (a few of its many benefits)

  • Improve recovery from repetitive issues and soft tissue injuries
  • Relieve muscle tension to increase mobility and flexibility
  • Helps to eliminate toxins from the body by increasing blood flow to areas
  • Can reduce physical and emotional tensions
  • Helps bring you back to the present with mind and body


Yolande incorporates different Massage techniques to create a session specific to the individuals needs at the time and moving forward. Her aim is always to help the client get the very best out of their body by reducing restrictions. From her ‘tool box’ she will create a session from the following techniques;

  • Therapeutic Massage – using knowledge of the body and massage techniques to reduce pain, restrictions, adhesions and the like to get the body moving freely and comfortably
  • Deep Tissue Massage – using techniques to access deeper areas of restriction and discomfort using massage, trigger points and friction
  • Sports Massage – helping pre event to reduce injury chances and post to aid in recovery
  • Myofascial Release – this is one of my passions! Sinking into the 3D web of the fascia that allows our body to slide and glide, provides our shape and allows the body systems to communicate. It is so fascinating throughout our body from head to toe. It just provides a WOW factor to understanding the body and its tensegrity. Once the body loses its slide and glide ability in an area due to injury, repetitive poor posture and even stress it affects how our body functions. Clients really do benefit from the ‘unravelling’ sensations they experience
