Esther achieved her Diploma in Remedial Massage from the School of Integrated Body Therapy (Aus) in 2006. She also has a Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Massage (U.K.) together with other certificates in Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Whole Health Pathology. More recently, she completed a certificate in Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) and Arthrofascial Stretching from The Art And Science of Kinesiology LLC (USA) in 2015.
Esther believes that assessment is important to prioritise what the musculoskeletal issues are and treat them systematically. She typically starts her first session with a patient with a postural and foot assessment. She is passionate that massage therapy should be patient-driven; not a predetermined set of techniques that is performed routinely on every patient. She understands and appreciates that each individual is different with unique problems and issues. To her, massage therapy can address many musculoskeletal issues such as pain caused by myofascial trigger points (muscular knots), restricted range of motion, poor circulation and weakness. Where necessary, Arthrofascial Stretching techniques are also ulitized to improve and facilitate musculoskeletal mobility and flexibility. Esther seeks to find answers to each patient’s myofascial and musculoskeletal questions to enable her to solve their issues permanently.
