Meet Our Experienced Therapist

Yolande earned her Diploma in Massage Therapy in 2000 from The Canterbury College of Natural Medicine. She had a busy practice in the old Clarendon Tower Health Club in Christchurch before moving to Torbay with her family.

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

What Are Some Benefits?

Massage has been shown to provide a number of health benefits, as well as helping to reduce stress in the body. Some of the common benefits include:

  • Improves recovery from repetitive & soft tissue injuries
  • Relieves 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

Our Techniques

Yolande incorporates a range of techniques to create a session tailored to your specific needs at the moment 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 based on the following techniques:

  • Therapeutic: using knowledge of the body and soft tissue techniques to reduce pain, restrictions, adhesions and the like to get the body moving freely and comfortably
  • Deep Tissue: accessing deeper areas of restriction and discomfort using massage, trigger points and friction
  • Sports: helping pre-event to reduce risk of injury and post-event to aid in recovery
  • Myofascial Release: this is one of Yolande’s passions! This method sinks 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. Once the body loses its slide and glide ability in an area due to injury, repetitive poor posture, or even stress, it affects how our body functions. Clients benefit in many ways from the ‘unravelling’ sensations they experience with this technique.

What to Expect

We typically book a one-hour session for your initial visit so that our therapist can get to know you and your needs. After your first session, you may book one-hour or 40-minute sessions.

A member of Massage New Zealand, Yolande is an Easy Claim provider with Southern Cross. If you have Southern Cross Wellbeing One or Wellbeing Two and the Body Care Module, then Yolande can assist you with a claim.
