My Experience and Qualifications

I have been actively practising massage therapy for 5 years, and I have continued to develop my expertise across a wide range of massage therapy techniques. On establishing my business of Body Calm Massage Therapy, it’s enabled me to further extend my massage services into my key areas of passion.

I am certified, with a Level 5 Diploma in Relaxation Massage Therapy & Wellness, from The New Zealand College of Massage.

My previous experience includes working in the Wellington Hospital Neonatal Ward, Mary Potter Hospice, and providing massage therapy to a local sports team. I also have a background in office-based massage, events, and in a luxury spa setting.
