Zoe has always had a keen interest in massage from an early age from her involvement in sport. After working in hospitality and a period at university, a career in massage therapy only made sense as it combines her compassionate nature and urge to care for others with her strong interest in the human anatomy and how to look after our bodies.


She completed her Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy in 2010 at the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences and has since worked alongside Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Chiropractors and Naturopaths. Collaborating with other health professionals has given Zoe a wide variety of experience and knowledge about functional anatomy, enabling her to be adaptable with each treatment. Along with deep tissue, sports and remedial massage Zoe has also completed training in Dry Needling Therapy.


Returning to Australia in 2016 from two years working abroad in Canada has left Zoe more enthusiastic than ever to improve the health and well-being of others. Zoe is always looking to further develop her massage skills and continue to expand her knowledge to enable her to provide the most up to date treatment for her patients.


Being a keen Beach Volleyball player and sports person, Zoe understand the importance of maintaining functionality, strength and flexibility. As well as being an important priority for high performance athletes she also believes these are important for all people and can help provide a great quality of life.
