Denese Mentor

In 2004, Denese opened her massage studio, specializing in the treatment of muscle problems, both bio-mechanical and postural, by combining various techniques to release the muscles.

Denese assesses each of her clients to determine the cause of the problem, so she can treat the problem not the symptom. She treats most areas of painful muscle dysfunction, including the very common areas of neck, shoulder and lower back.

The feet and legs are another common area for pain and without a good foundation for the body through the feet, mechanical problems such as pronation or high arches can eventually affect knees and hips as the muscles compensate. When not treated, these can result in hip and knee replacements.

Osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia are notoriously hard to treat conventionally. Medication is used to relieve pain, but these have side effects. Denese uses therapeutic massage to soothe the muscles and release tension.

Denese uses various techniques at her disposal to allow the body to heal itself.

Denese completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2001 at the Academy of Natural Therapies at the Gold Coast encompassing these treatment therapies:

  • Deep tissue
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Lymphatic massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Reflexology
  • Other complementary massage therapies

Myopractic Techniques

This therapy allows the release of particular muscles and for the body to be brought into balanced structural alignment.

It works to relieve chronic pain working with the deep muscle tissue in combination with structural integration or harmony between the individual’s body and the surrounding gravitational field.

The fascia, a web-like connective tissue in the organs, bones, muscles, and blood vessels are manipulated into a position of harmony and balance.

Reflexology and Foot Massage

Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot’s reflex points mirrors that in a corresponding part of the body.

Some treatments are gentle in nature, aiming to restore systems for better function while others are more specific, addressing a particular condition.

It is a healing process that can be used when it is not convenient to treat other body parts. As a non-intrusive technique, it heals indirectly.

Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body.

Reflexology can facilitate relief for:

Emmett Technique

Emmett Therapy is a muscle activation technique used to unlock muscle memory. A practitioner has the skills to asses a client to find the initial activation that created the neuro muscular problem.

Light pressure sequences are used to release the problem areas and the effect can be almost instantaneous. This activation gives the brain the opportunity to set up a new state of homeostatis and provides an opportunity for realignment of the body.

Symptoms that can be relieved include:

  • Neck and shoulder restriction and referred discomfort
  • Lymphatic congestion and breathing
  • Migraine and cluster headaches
  • Abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort
  • Persistent heel and foot pain
  • Headaches, dizziness and sinus congestion

  • And many more!

  • Shortened recovery time from muscular strain
  • Increased circulation without increased heart load
  • Stretching of ligaments and tendons
  • Skin stimulation
