Charli is our newest addition to the body Align Myotherapy and Massage Team she is a member of Massage & Myotherapy Australia. Fresh into the clinic as we “reopen” she is excited to be here to help you after this long lockdown. Charli is a Remedial qualified massage therapist with a diploma gained in 2014; when she first moved to Melbourne from New Zealand.
From her own past personal journey battling with pain; aware of how impactful and frustrating it can be, Massage helped bring her back to a place of balance and comfort; so now with great empathy and understanding it means a great deal for her to be able to support her clients on their own journey back to health.
She initially developed her experience growing as a therapist in the five-star day spa industry in Armadale.
After two years of discovering just how special it was seeing the results of massage, she went on an adventure to expand her clinical skills in Thailand where she studied both relaxation and Yoga stretch massage, loving to incorporate Eastern philosophies into the treatment room.
Upon returning to Melbourne, she developed her own niche business providing corporate massage to co-working companies servicing three buildings in the CBD. Here she helped a varied loyal client base with a unique business and clients she adored. Due to the change in landscape within the co-working industry Charli has needed to adapt and is excited to have found her way to us, she believes when one door closes another one opens; looking forward to getting back to her love of Massage, meeting and helping new clients.
She is able to treat all Remedial issues but has a passion for working with clients who suffer anxiety, high stress or sleep disorders including mild to severe insomnia. She has found a mixture of Massage, Reiki and meditation techniques can be a great part of a bigger plan in improving these conditions; fascinated by the mind/body connection she continues to study mindfulness and hopes to study integrative nutrition soon.
With an interest in functional movement and fitness Charli is a qualified TRX trainer currently also studying to be a Pilates instructor and hopes to continue on to Barre body and Yoga – Charli calls herself mildly obsessed with anything that works to help us gain freedom from pain, strengthen our areas of weakness, realign and become more present and confident moving and within ourselves to improve our quality and comfort in life along the journey.
Outside of her happy massage bubble, she has a passion for human connection, Travel and musical performance – playing the piano and singing; so you may see her out entertaining locally
