Thank-you for your time here. I'm Christine, although when we meet in person I'll call myself Chrissy. I am a remedial massage therapist with 13 years experience and you will find me in the nourishing treatment space I have created in North Caulfield, Melbourne. I have a very simple treatment philosophy - I give you a safe space to surrender, to breathe with expansion, to soften, to nourish and to step away from the external going ons surrounding you.
ABOUT LIFE & MIND MASSAGE
With my many years of experience, my intention is to create a truly individual massage treatment for each client and to deliver massage in a calming and healing environment.
Our bodies are designed to move freely and without discomfort. How do you feel when you move your body? Tight? Sore? Restricted? Pain? When muscular function is reduced, contracted or injured your body will let you know, it is then your choice to heal or ignore, I often hear clients tell me ‘I just thought it would get better on its own.’
'I give you a quiet space to help disconnect,
breathe deeply and encourage your rest & digest process to activate.'
The aim of a Remedial treatment is to provide relief and encourage healing, this can be through soft tissue massage and other applications like glass cupping, trigger point therapy, muscle stretching, joint mobilisation, postural taping.
Pregnancy and Massage team up wonderfully together. Pregnancy massage has been shown to reduce stress hormones within a pregnant woman’s body and works very effectively on the nervous system to induce a sense of calm, which in turn helps mum to sleep better and help her little human (or humans) to grow.
Lymphatic drainage massage will help to eliminate waste and congested materials in the body and reduce excess fluid. It’s a general clean up for the inside of your body.
ABDOMINAL + FERTILITY MASSAGE
Abdominal massage is such a nourishing treatment, I gently encourage my clients to allow me to come into their belly space as it also creates a strong sense of relaxation.
I am very passionate about women’s health & fertility and how massage can play an important role in this journey. I myself under went four years of Fertility & IVF treatments and can empathise with clients on their fertility journey and understanding the struggles that are placed on the mind and body.
I have completed further studies in fertility massage, allowing me to support clients during their own fertility journey whether it be natural conception or assisted.
REST AND DIGEST MASSAGE TREATMENT
Image this…A warm treatment room, electric blanket creating a constant soft heat on the bed, 45 or 60 minute massage (your choice of massage) and then at the end of the massage treatment you are covered with a weighted blanket, headphones playing slow healing sounds are placed over your ears, an eye pillow gently resting over your eyes to help with an inwards gaze, an aromatic scent lightly sprayed above you to entice your mind and body to slip a little bit deeper into rest. This will be a space created for you to fully surrender into restorative warming stillness. I'll leave the room to give you complete solitude and softly re-enter 15 minutes later.
"Chrissy is incredible, she creates a space that is welcoming, comforting and safe and allows you to escape from the world, even for a short time. Her calm and soothing energy is a welcome relief for both body and soul."
