Remedial & Sports Massage Therapists
Remedial / Sports Massage Therapist
With a passion for health and fitness, Jessi started studying sports massage therapy as a mature age student in 2010. When Jessi started she had no idea what a sports therapist was, but it has been the best thing that she has ever done! It’s opened up a whole new world for her! Jessi has since become a personal trainer and ties the two qualifications together quite effectively.
Working with North Melbourne Football Club has been a highlight of Jessi’s career – “I have learnt so much from their incredible team which I’ve been able to apply to my techniques. I love taking a functional approach to my treatments, through assessment, massage and exercise! With my sports therapy I can assess, treat and provide corrective exercise which ties in perfectly with SMAPS!”

Remedial Massage Therapist
Following a career as a professional contemporary dancer Lisa knew she wanted to become a massage therapist. She was always very intrigued by the human body with anatomy being one of her favourite subjects at Uni. After suffering a myriad of injuries Lisa worked closely with her therapists to recover from and prevent further injuries, this inspired her to go back to study and complete her Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2017.
Lisa also loves to teach dance and is a Barre Pilates instructor at SMAPS. This has helped to develop the massage therapist she is today, gaining a great understanding of how the body works and providing knowledge of stretches and exercises to help correct posture and prevent injuries.
Shortly after finishing her studies Lisa welcomed a beautiful baby boy called Harvey into her family which has kept her busy! Lisa is very excited to be joining the SMAPS team as a Massage Therapist in 2019 as well as continuing as a Barre Pilates instructor.
