Thank you for reaching out!  

I’ll be in touch as soon as possible.

I’m a business of one and a mum of two, so sometimes ‘as soon as possible’ may be a few days. If you need anything urgent, it’s best to try me on my mobile: 0408 299 832. 

 All good things,

Are your fees covered by Health Funds/Insurance?

All of my services are covered by all major health funds. You’ll need to contact your healthcare services provider to see what kind of coverage you have.

HICAPS is available for on-the-spot health fund payments.

What should I wear?

Your level of comfort is important. And it’s equally important to have full access to the areas we’re working on in each session.

FOR WOMEN: a two-piece bathing suit or a bra and full coverage underwear/running shorts that allow for full range of movement. Avoid sports bras that don’t allow for full access to the spine.

FOR MEN: full-coverage boxer shorts, running shorts or bathing suit recommended.

In your first session, you’ll complete a comprehensive intake form and we’ll discuss your reasons for beginning the work. Initial sessions are 90 minutes to allow us the time to talk through your medical history and goals without feeling rushed.
and/or evaluate your alignment before starting. Sessions are done in your underwear/underclothes.

I use elbows, hands, fingers and knuckles to apply slow and specific pressure to the fascia to reorganize its position in your structure. You may be asked to keep your eyes open (nap time comes later!), breathe into the area we are working, or make small movements during the session.

I love to begin and end sessions with techniques that aim to help you ‘drop in,’ relax your nervous system and ensure you get the most out of your session. The specifics of which techniques we use will depend on you, your body and your goals. They’re often completely different for each person.

The session ends with gentle neck work and sometimes—for the homework lovers—I’ll give you a task to work on at home to help garner the most from your next session.

What can I expect in a typical SI or bodywork session? 


Ideally a week in between, but every 2 weeks or once a month is acceptable.


  • Sessions 1-4: all four sessions can be done within one week, or one week apart, because each session focuses on a different part of the body
  • Sessions 5-8: should be completed a week apart
  • Sessions 9-12: can be done 1-3 weeks apart

If you stick to 1 session/week schedule, the 12-series will be completed in approximately 3 months time.

How long should I wait between sessions?

What happens after I finish a 12 series?

The 12 series is designed to leave your structure balanced and in a finished place. Many clients complete the series and never feel the need for another session.

Others view Structural Integration (SI) as an essential way of maintaining their bodies and come in for regular “tune-ups”—sometimes monthly or annually.

Some clients find so much more ease and relaxation in their bodies after SI that they use it instead of massage. Others take a break for several months after the series and then request a post-twelve-series, generally three sessions, often focused on specific goals.

Lastly, some clients only use SI on an as-needed basis, like after a fall. 

There is no right or wrong way. Find what works for your body. 

How long will the physical changes last?

Depending on how complex your compensation patterns are, it may take a bit of time to unwind all the structures involved. More often than not, the deeper the structure—and the longer it has been that way—the shorter the effects will last.

Ideally, if you establish a dedicated daily self-care routine and address the root causes that are causing your discomfort (like crossing your legs, or sitting at a computer for extended periods of time), the impact of SI treatments will last longer.
Your body’s ability to hold these positive changes is based on things like age, hydration levels, tissue type and tissue conditions.

The ATSI series is a carefully designed sequence to prevent you from regressing. In fact, you can expect positive changes to keep developing in the months following the end of the series.

What makes the ATSI type of Structural Integration different?

ATSI is one particular form of Structural Integration and as such, there are many other brands of SI – Rolfing®, Guild of Structural Integration, Hellerwork, Soma, Core… just to name a few!

I chose to specifically practice the Anatomy Trains “brand” of Structural Integration for the following reasons:
  • System-oriented, rather than based entirely on symptoms
  • Treatment is applied gently and sensitively, with full client participation and autonomy
  • ATSI-certified practitioners welcome and value the input of other disciplines

Although many people are drawn to Structural Integration because they’re experiencing some kind of pain or restriction, the true intent of this work is to get to the underlying root condition behind the acute issues.

The key is to create an environment where the client becomes independent and stable on their own, rather than creating a long-term dependency on the therapist or continued work, as seen with some other modalities.

ATSI is compatible with acupuncture, homeopathy, osteopathy, chiropractic, craniosacral work, and most forms of massage, yoga and exercise.

A technique likened to trigger point therapy with needles—dry needling uses acupuncture needles to release tight, inflamed, and often chronically painful conditions. This can be an especially effective therapy when used in conjunction with remedial massage techniques.

What is Myofascial Dry Needling?

Do the needles hurt?

Initially, there can be some discomfort. Sometimes even the word needle can evoke a level of unease or worry in people. The aim of dry needling is to initiate a twitch response from the trigger point (a taut band or ‘knot’ in a muscle), which can help to relax the muscle.

The twitch response can feel like a dull ache or throb, although it can be uncomfortable it is often a welcomed feeling—like “ahhh, someone finally hit the spot!”


They tell me I have 

But I know it’s accumulated knowledge. Knowledge from over two decades of practicing bodywork on hundreds of clients. Knowledge gained from my qualifications in everything from remedial massage to yoga therapy to structural integration. Knowledge that has become ingrained in my hands and transformed to intuition. 
 You can call it magic if you’d like though.
