Hi there. Im Megan (Meg) and I trained as a Physical Education Teacher at UTS (Kuring-gai Campus) Sydney and have now taught PE, Health and Personal Development for 25+ years in High Schools. About 10 years ago an idea became a reality and then a love .while teaching, I studied and completed two internationally recognised Diplomas at Nature Care College, St Leonards, North Sydney, in Remedial Massage and Lymphatic Drainage and am currently to finish a Diploma in Myofascial Release. Both my Teaching and Massage qualifications have complemented each other enormously over nearly the last decade.
My role as a teacher was to empower kids to make good decisions and to get involved in healthy activities, hence positively and indirectly affecting young peoples health. Massage, in contrast, positively and directly affects peoples health with all hands on! I currently work full-time as a Mobile Massage Therapist, a Health and Spa Retreat Practitioner and a Day Clinic Therapist a wonderful combination of health-oriented organisations to be immersed in.
The main reason I have chosen to conduct my own Massage business as a mobile practice is to provide a service for people who cant or dont want to go to a clinic or day-spa for various reasons. Some of the reasons include being time-poor, caring for young children, partners or family members, having a disability or simply not wanting to lose the relaxing effects of the massage on the drive home. Often people want flexibility in treatment hours and to chill immediately afterwards, or just want to know the kids are nearby and fine in their own environment. Selfishly too, its a wonderful dynamic way for me to work in and learn about my beautiful new home here in the Tweed as well as in my original and other favourite place, the Northern Beaches of Sydney!
My Qualifications include:
Bachelor of Education (Phys. Ed.)
Diploma Remedial Massage
Diploma Lymphatic Drainage
Diploma Myofascial Release (continuing)
Apply First Aid (Current)
Membership with ARM (Association of Remedial Masseurs)
Indemnity Insurance (OAMPS)
