About Laura

My love of sport came at an early age and two of my greatest sporting achievements were competing at a national level for swimming and winning a gymnastics competition in Hawaii.

Since then, I’ve surrounded myself with sport and been fortunate enough to be the massage therapist for many professional sporting teams; The Sydney Kings, GWS Giants AFL & AFLW, GWS Giants Super Netball to name a few.

But massage isn’t just for professional athletes. I’ve found it to be a great tool to relieve lower back pain, pregnancy aches and minimise severity and frequency of headaches. I’m passionate about using massage to treat sinus congestion, plantar fasciitis and wry neck.

Expanding on my professional modalities, I’ve become a Lymphoedema therapist and treat swelling of known and unknown origins in the upper & lower limbs, head and neck, breast and abdomen.
