Hi! A bit about me...

My name is Abby, and I am a massage therapist based in Shellharbour Village.

 

Welcome to coastal village massage therapy a space to switch off, a space to recharge and a space to prioritise self-care.

I opened up my first massage clinic here in my home in Shellharbour Village in September 2023. My main drivers behind this were my passion for helping people, my strong belief in promoting women's health - especially during the early years of motherhood & parenting, and my need for a flexible, yet fulfilling career.  These first few months have been amazing - meeting so many beautiful clients and helping you feel strong in your bodies and achieve a slice of peace & wellness in your life.

 

Apart from being a massage therapist, I am also a mother, daughter, wife, sister, friend, coach and teammate, among other things. Family, friends and sport make up a big part of my life, and it is from these loves that I have built a strong knowledge and understanding of what we need as busy parents trying to juggle it all... And why I have created this safe, calm space for you to really switch off and let go of the tension and the stress that inevitably comes with #mumlife.

Can't wait to meet you and help you find the time for some self-care so you can show yourself the same love and care you show all the special people around you... #selfcarematters

Highlights of this course were definitely the anatomy & physiology lessons.

I loved learning about our amazing bodies and how everything is so interconnected. It gave me such a better base from which to build my massage skills.
