Rae Gardiner – Remedial Massage Therapist (Dip. RMT), MMA Member
Rae is a dedicated and enthusiastic massage therapist having recently completed the Diploma of Remedial Massage at Victoria Polytechnic. Her motivation to join the health industry has come from a love of helping people and problem-solving. Spending most of her pre-massage professional life in customer service and data entry, she wanted a career change to really connect with the people she was helping. She is dedicated to treating her client's muscular conditions but also factors in their overall well-being. Working with clients to reach their goals and assisting them to achieve a pain-free and comfortable life is her focus. Using a broad range of techniques learned in her studies she is able to offer remedial and relaxation treatments, as well as Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
During her studies, Rae uncovered a passion for Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Rae says,
The lymphatic system is an integral part of overall health as this is where a person's immunity comes from. Lymphatic drainage stimulates the parasympathetic nervous systems, boosts the immune system and assists in fluid circulation. It is a useful tool for people to help manage fluid retention, pre-post surgery scarring, any bruising and swelling, carpal tunnel, sinititus/hayfever, skin conditions, pre-post dental/facial surgery.
This is an area that Rae is keen to apply her knowledge and continue further studies. Rae's clients have been impressed with her empathy and ability to put them at ease, while working out their muscular issues.
Outside of the clinic Rae plays roller derby and volunteers for her club, the West Side Derby Dollz, as their treasurer and coach. She also enjoys spending time with her fiance Anthony and step-daughter Kody.
We are so grateful to have the lovely Rae working with the team at Total Wellbeing and we look forward to you meeting her soon.
