A Caring, Precise and Committed massage therapist.
Scope of Practice
Valerie treats a wide range of body ailments caused by stress, poor posture, recreational activities, repetitive tasks, injury or pregnancy.
Thanks to her background and her own life experiences, she has developed a great knowledge about the numerous and various symptoms brought forward by each of you and more importantly, a great knowledge about how to treat them.
Whether you are an office worker suffering from Lower Back Pain or Neck and Shoulder Tension, sometimes triggering headaches, OR an athlete willing to reach your optimum performance and prevent injuries, OR a Mum-To-Be trying to find a way to release the discomforts related to pregnancy OR a (new) Mum dealing with a busy lifestyle and lack of sleep…Valerie will provide you with a treatment that suits your own needs.
After becoming a new mum in December 2014, her scope of the body has opened even wider and she now specialises in Pregnancy Massage. She became a Certified NurtureLife® Practitioner with Pregnancy Massage Australia®. This perinatal massage technique assists in relieving many of the common causes of discomfort during pregnancy.
Born in France, Valerie moved to Australia in 2010 wanting to experience something new and exciting after 10 years in the IT industry, during which time she developed poor posture, stress and body pain. Massage Therapy became a way to reduce the tension and Restore Mobility for a Healthy body.
Health and Fitness have always been a huge part of her life and it didn’t take long for Valerie to make the decision to turn her passions into her career: she became a Remedial Massage Therapist after accomplishing an intense course at Temana, one of the leading institutions in the French Massage College Industry, and completing the Diploma here in Australia, achieving a High Distinction.
“I am very enthusiastic about all of the ways to improve your quality of life. I work with osteopaths, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists to provide my amazing clients with the best treatment possible for them as individuals.”
Valerie truly believes in the Healthy Fox Lifestyle. But don’t talk to her about restricted diet, she would never stop eating chocolate (her second love after her family) but she believes the way to a healthy life is all about BALANCE, enjoyment and staying active to feel great and stay fit and healthy!
In her free time, you will find her practising her gymnastics and olympic weight lifting skills in a crossfit gym, her new fitness passion since 2016!
