    I have been running Refresh with my husband Simon since September 2002 while raising our two daughters. The part of my job I love most is seeing regular clients that are in for preventing problems and for maintaining a healthy, functional lifestyle. They get tension due to work or life/sport/hobbies/family and know that a regular treatment will alleviate tension preventing further injury and pain.

    After all the years massaging I still love it. I passionately believe in its benefits. I love that it works not only on a physical level to manage pain, reduce tension, enhance performance and flexibility but also works on a mental and emotional level to relieve stress, anxiety and depression while aiding sleep and our ability to cope with the stresses of life.

    I am from Taiwan and living in Australia for 4 years. I appreciate having this chance to work at Refresh with lovely space, clean equipment, ethical duties, and friendly staff.

    After a few years of work experience in massage, I still love this carer and enjoy helping people. Health is the most important thing in our life. Massage not only helps physical issues but also mental stress. I like to massage professionally and effectively, so I decided to study remedial massage to get more knowledge, techniques and skills.

    As a massage therapist, I must look after myself first then provide good treatments for clients. In my free time, I like to work out to keep my body fit. I enjoy cooking, food, hot baths, and music to release stress. I try new things to work my brain's function. I am satisfied with helping people.

    Membership: Association of Massage Therapists (AMT)

    I am a passionate local, born and raised right here in Bendigo. I absolutely love this city and I am excited to raise my family here. Several years ago I decided to do a course that introduced me to massage. I fell in love with it instantly and knew I wanted to make a career of it. Completing my Diploma of Remedial Massage was a proud moment for me.

    Whilst studying for my Diploma, I worked at Cherish Thy. I got to get in lots of practice and also learned a lot about floatation and the benefits of self care. Completing my Diploma of Remedial Massage was a proud moment for me and I continued to work with Cherish Thy as a masseuse.

    After my first child was born, I took some time away to focus on being the best mother I could. Now that she is a bit older, I am very excited to be back doing what I am passionate about. I find it very rewarding to be able to help others deal with any muscular pain and to help them alleviate the stresses of day to day life.

    I have recently completed extra study in prenatal massage as its an area of massage I particularly enjoy.
