Please tell everyone who you are.
I am Clare from the UK and am passionate about massage and helping people feel awesome.
I have lived in Australia for almost 5 years now, lived in and love Melbourne first up then moved to Sydney for a change. WHilst I love the Sydney lifestyle, I feel more at home in Melbourne and am living and loving life there again now.
Is Corporate Massage ‘it’ for you or do you apply your skills in private practice? If yes, how and where?
I work in Corporate massage for this great company (Seated Massage!) and I also work with elderly people in their homes to help with independent living. It is a great way to use my massage skills in the community.
It takes a special kind of person to work as a touch practitioner. Why do you do it?
I enjoy assisting people to feel better. I used to work in an office myself and always looked forward to a massage at my desk! I understand how it can make a difference to wellness at work.
As a massage practitioner, you need heart and empathy, and I’m always looking at new ways to improve myself and develop as a great practitioner.
How does what you do every day contribute to the greater good of your community, or thinking big, the planet!?
My work has a great impact on the community, helping people perform better, reducing stress and anxiety and reducing pain. Happy people make a happy community!
I have also volunteered at the Women’s Walk to End Cancer and would like to continue getting involved in such great events.
And very importantly, because you’re a normal (super) human and like to do normal (super) human things too, what is the most normal thing about you?
I love walking my dogs. I have two beautiful Border Collies and have even driven around Australia with them!
