    I moved to Bendigo in 1999 to study the Diploma of Remedial Massage. Whilst studying, I worked fulltime at a spa resort in Hepburn for 18 months, then a further 18 months part time to focus on building my own practice in Bendigo.

    My focus has always been providing a high level of knowledge and skill to identify muscle dysfunction that causes pain and restriction. Then using a veriety of remedial techniques, efectively treat the cause of the dysfunction including any secondary issues and provide stretching and strengthening exercises where neccessary to address postural imbalences and possible weeknesses that contribute to the issues.

    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 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 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.

  • Lilian

    I have lived in Bendigo for over a decade and consider it my home. This is where my husband and I met and fell in love, adopted two lovely dogs, and settled our small family here. This is also the place where I settled my mind on massage therapy. To this day, Bendigo is always a place full of excitement, possibility, and diversity to me.

    What I truly appreciate about massage is seeing the relief and joy on the face of a client after one session as well as their trust in my techniques and professionalism. As a popular natural healthcare form, massage therapy can support people in various ways. Physically, it facilitates the circulation of blood in our body to increase the range of motion and relieve muscular tension. Mentally, it supports people experiencing stress, anxiety, or grief. In a faster-paced modern society, people often neglect how much mental health affects our overall wellbeing. Massage therapy reconnects us to our body and increases our health awareness. Massage also benefitted me in many ways. I developed a better sense of self-care and self-responsibility, which increased my quality of life and health. After work, I regularly exercise in Pilates, yoga, and dancing to maintain my strength and health. I also actively participate in different community activities to connect with different people.

  • RJ

    Hi, my name is RJ, masseur of Refresh Day Spa. I’ve been doing massage since 2014. Last year I moved to Bendigo for work and I’ve now fallen in love with the country/city vibe. I love indoor/outdoor music events, cooking complicated dishes and catching up with people I love. I also love animals that won’t bite.

    I’ve spent years working in different types of massage environments and I will bring all of those experiences to the table, combining several different styles into one very unique style designed to get the best results to fit the client’s needs.
    My goal is to help people live a better life by utilizing the healing benefits of therapeutic massage. So I enrolled to become a Remedial therapist and will be fully qualified next year.

    I believe self-care is ESSENTIAL in today’s stressful world. Massage can be beneficial to everyone when applied in the correct manner by a caring, knowledgeable and experienced therapist.
    I look forward in helping you on your path to wellness.
