Nadja - Massage Therapist

Nadja is passionate about massage and the results it can deliver, and how much of a different, and always new, experience it can be!
She holds an advanced diploma from the New Zealand College of Massage in Clinical Massage Therapy.

People of varying backgrounds such as weekend athletes, desk warriors, caregivers, or anyone who would like to be pampered or reconnect with their body, will resonate with Nadja. Together, general wellness goals can be addressed, as well as more specific ones, such as improving range of motion, muscle imbalances, chronic tension, pain conditions, overuse syndromes, and injury recovery.

Two sessions are rarely the same; feel encouraged to let her know exactly what you want, or if you prefer not to think too much, let her take charge while she intuitively spends a little more time on areas of your body that ask for it. Let her know your expectations, and she will gladly accommodate you while also suggesting other approaches you might not have been aware of.

She is all about putting that bounce back into your step, helping you reset mind and body, allowing you more freedom of movement in your everyday tasks.

Her speciality are long deep tissue full body massages, and she also excels in short, very specific treatments. Her treatments can be strictly relaxation focused, with optional hot stones, or have a sport focused or remedial approach including cupping and dry techniques - e.g. myofascial release, and a range of other soft tissue techniques such as gentle mobilisations.
