Matt Wierzbicki Remedial Massage Therapist
Types of Massage: remedial, deep tissue, sports, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, reflexology, therapeutic and relaxation
Matt brings a wealth of experience to the Health Lodge team in the areas of massage therapy, yoga, injury treatment and rehabilitation, and body work.
With 10 years of massage experience, Matt has spent many years working closely with physiotherapists which has given him the tools and confidence to work with all sorts of injuries and medical conditions. Matt combines the Eastern healing arts with Western medicine to give people an integrated and holistic approach to treating musculoskeletal dysfunction.
Whether you need to release muscle tension/tightness, or you have some niggles that you need to manage, or you have severe restricted movement such as frozen shoulder then Matt’s bodywork can help you. For injuries and imbalances Matt recommends correctional stretching in conjunction with massage as this gives the best results and this can be incorporated into the sessions if you wish.
If you have health issues or chronic diseases then Matt utilizes the “Touch for Health” bodywork which is a gentle and supportive treatment which reduces pain, tension, and anxiety. More importantly this promotes deep rest which is greatly beneficial in healing.

Miles Sanderson Ka Huna Massage
As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Miles works closely with individuals to help resolve trauma or accumulated stress within their system. His individualised sessions respect the needs and safety of each client and promote more of a sense of well-being within. As a result of this clients are able to find freedom from things that have been affecting their lives either in the short term or for some decades.

SE is not about re-telling the story – Miles works to educate the client and their system to find peace within. As a result of this the trauma event/s lose their charge and clients find relief, often feeling more like themselves and are therefore able to live a more harmonious life.
