17 Philippa Court Viewbank
I gained my qualification as a Remedial Massage Therapist in 2004, and have worked in Palliative Care for the last nine years. My experience with Oncology and Palliative patients has been gained through my private clinic, as well as working for four years as part of a community-based Palliative Care organisation as a Massage Therapist.
In 2006, I attended the Massage, Cancer and More course at Quest for Life and successfully completed the Casley-Smith Lymphoedema Training (Complex Lymphatic Therapy) with Elspeth Perry during the same year. I became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2009, following three years of study and spiritual growth, and now offer attunements to others who are interested in working with Reiki energy. In 2013, I undertook further specialised training with Gayle MacDonald in Portland, Oregon completing her Massage for People Living with Cancer course followed by the Massage in the Oncology Setting at OHSU. In 2014, I attended the S4OM Visioning Conference in Sarasota, Florida and subsequently attended the 2016 S4OM Conference in Minneapolis and currently volunteer as the S4OM Regional Champion to promote S4OM in Australia.
I currently work from my home clinic in Viewbank as well as undertake contract work from various hospitals and community based palliative organisations. I am an S4OM Recognised Provider of Education and offer the 3-Day Intensive in Oncology Massage Course (Foundation course) and the Advanced Palliative Care Massage Course for therapists who have an interest in working in the Palliative Sector. To support therapists working with clients, I also facilitate a Self-Care for Therapist course, which is conducted over two days.
I am available for home visits within the Melbourne metropolitan area.
