About Estelle: Body Manager Therapist

 

WHAT I DO.....

I am like many of you and lead a busy life. Apart from work, I love to stay fit and healthy. I cycle, play six-a-side soccer, practice yoga and taekwondo. My knowledge of the body and mind connection has been invaluable in these activities. I constantly use what I know to get the best results out of my body for flexibility, balance, recovery and to avoid injury. These activities enable me to understand how to help my clients stay fit and healthy and be able to give them strategies to stay on top of their game using Emmett Therapy, Power training, Kinesiology and Neurotraining, Massage and McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release work. 

I am passionate about what I do, I find it fascinating how we as individuals, work, think and are influenced by our upbringing and environment but have the capacity to change.

 

HOW I GOT INTO NATURAL THERAPIES….

Sporting injuries, relationship challenges, life in general had me feeling stressed, physically unwell and unable to cope. This led me to search for alternative ways to deal with these symptoms, and I experienced life changing results with the therapies that I tried. These experiences developed my interest in alternative therapies and I began studying them, my business grew from there. I have been practicing as a Massage Therapist since 2000, and in 2010 added Kinesiology & Neurotraining and Emmett Therapy to my practice.  I continue to attend courses for learning, so I have more resources for my clients for even better outcomes.

 

MY CLINICS.....

Being a hands on physical kind of person led me to build my first clinic room at Numinbah in 2011 with the help of one of my daughters. You can check out the photos of how we went about it on my facebook page,      “ Bodymanager”

 For two people who had never done building before, it was hard work, lots of fun, challenging, and very satisfying to achieve.

I then opened a clinic at west Murwillumbah, in June 2014 until May 2016 and travelled to Brisbane to see clients in a clinic at Kelvin Grove on a fortnightly basis, however I closed those clinics at the end of June 2016 to concentrate on my clients in the Tweed and Gold Coast area in my clinic now situated at 3 Kinross Close, Banora Point, Tuesdays to Friday’s and since November 2018 I started working again in Murwillumbah every Monday at a room in the Murwillumbah Plaza.

 

OTHER ACTIVITIES.....

If you cycle and participate in the annual 10 day cycle tour for Bicycle Queensland, you may have met me there as volunteer team manager for the massage team. It was a great experience and I met many friendly cyclists and helped keep them feeling good to get back on their bikes each day. You can see photos of the event on my facebook page.

I have also worked at Ruah Rainforest Retreat, Chillingham for Tracy Rosser doing therapy work for her clients.

I sponsored Brent Simpson from www.heavyhiterz.org  who cycled  from the Tweed Coast to Perth to raise funds and awareness for mental health. Brent came to me for sessions prior to the ride to keep his body and mind in top shape for this amazing ride. I  was privileged to be a part of the team involved in this event in 2015.

My own life experiences having relationship challenges and breakdowns, bringing up three daughters on my own, being an employee, and now running my own business, has given me insight and understanding into the stresses and challenges that we all face. Sometimes we cope, other times not so well.

I love to support my clients to cope more effectively with all their day to day physical and mental stress, and assist them to make positive changes in their life. It always gives me a fantastic feeling to see clients who arrive in physical and emotional pain, leave looking, and feeling like a different person.
