Originally from South Africa, Marisa has called Australia home for the last 10 years. She has lived in Brisbane, Melbourne, and the last few years in Townsville - loving the more laid back lifestyle and friendly people of North Queensland.
Marisa's own experience suffering from painful conditions fueled her interest in, and passion for massage and helping people. As an IT professional for 15 years, she constantly suffered from shoulder pain and headaches as well as chronic back pain from a recurring back injury. Having tried various other treatments without success, she finally experienced long lasting relief after receiving regular remedial massage treatments.
Marisa has completed her Diploma of Remedial Massage at one of the best massage schools in Melboune - the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy (MIMT). Her passion for soft tissue therapy in particular remedial massage, means she keeps her skills and knowledge up to date by regular professional education courses; this also enables her to provide the best possible treatment for her clients. She is fully trained in Dry Needling, Cupping Therapy, Myofascial Release Techhniques, Muscle Energy Techniques, Positional Release Techniques and Kinesiology Taping.
During her time in Melbourne she worked at one of Melbourne's most well known rugby union teams, the Melbourne Rebels; providing sports and remedial massage to players.

Her clientele includes patients suffering from tension, injuries or chronic pain/discomfort, athletes, pregnant women, children, the elderly, pre-and post-surgery/rehabilitation patients.
Helena and her family have been established in Townsville now for six years after fourteen years of living in various cities due to her husband Aaron being apart of the of Australian Defence Force. Helena and Aaron have four children who love Townsville and are active members of the community through various sporting programs.
Everyone knows Helena by her warm friendly disposition and she loves to make people feel welcome as soon as they walk through the door. Without a doubt Helena is highly organized and ensures the practice is running smoothly on a daily basis.
As a patient who has been greatly helped by Chiropractic and Physiotherapy treatment after a cleaning injury, Helena found her back pain and constant headaches are now a thing of the past. She found an amazing caring Chiropractor and Physiotherapist who adjusted and stretched her spine.
This was supported by an exercise program, and she was then encouraged to start up her running again and to find ways of reducing her stress.
Helena started her care program with regular visits and now maintains her new found body balance with monthly care. She has noticed how her posture has improved, her body is now in perfect alignment and she is no longer having headaches and her back has increased in strength through her exercise program and she has no trouble with the lower back area.
She is also a busy mum who enjoys doing running, yoga, watching her children play basketball, swim, watching footy and doing fun family things together.
Helena looks forward to meeting you and caring for all of your needs when you visit for your appointments.
