    • Kahuna Bodywork Level 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

    About

    Chrissie is passionate about supporting her clients in their journey to heal themselves, by assisting in rehabilitation from injuries and creating long-term changes in posture, body and lifestyle habits.

    Having a holistic approach to health and life, Chrissie looks at the body as an interconnected structure and therefore approaches her treatments from a myofascial release & craniosacral therapy point of view rather than working from a purely symptomatic “fix it” attitude. Consequently, she is creating flowing and nurturing ways to alleviate tension, discomfort and stress.

    Chrissie provides a broad range of modalities including Remedial, Relaxation, Pregnancy and Aromatherapy Massage, Spiritual Healing and Kahuna Hawaiian Temple Style Massage (Kahuna is not currently available at Massage by the Sea). She incorporates various techniques into each treatment, individually tailored to the client’s needs and wishes.

    Always interested to expand her knowledge and experience, Chrissie is currently involved in further studies of Myofascial Release & Craniosacral Therapy and Kahuna Bodywork.

    Qualifications
    • Cert IV Remedial Massage
    • Diploma of Remedial Massage
    About

    Tineke’s longstanding interest in health, food, emotional & physical wellbeing and spirituality were the drivers behind the decision to start studying Kinesiology, 10 years ago.
    Living on a small farm in hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, Tineke experienced an awakening (became aware) of the power of a healthy mind/body/spirit connection.
    In the years that followed, practicing Kinesiology, Tineke discovered that the missing link in her practice was Massage therapy and added Cert IV few years ago and has just finished her Diploma in Remedial Massage.

    Shareen

    Shareen
    Qualifications
    • Advanced Diploma of Nutritional Medicine (2019)
    • Diploma of Nutrition (1999)
    • Diploma of Remedial Massage (1997)
    About

    Shareen is the founder and owner of Massage by the sea which she began in 1998 at Wylie’s Baths. Shareen worked as a remedial massage therapist for 12 years before starting a family and moving to the role of manager when the practice opened a second clinic in Clovelly.

    With over 23 years in the natural health industry, Shareen is passionate about creating and evolving a business that brings skilled therapists and clients together within a beautiful, caring environment in which healing can occur. She enjoys being able to provide a sanctuary of calm and healing for the local community – “think global, act local”.

    In July 2014 Shareen was diagnosed with grade 2, stage 3 breast cancer. After major surgery (and a lot of research and soul searching), Shareen opted out of chemo and radiation and used nutrition and natural therapies to heal.

    Her enthusiasm for the power of nutrition and natural therapies was re-inspired and in 2017 Shareen went back to college to upgrade her qualifications to the Advanced Diploma of Nutritional Medicine.

    Shareen aims to support people on their cancer healing journey and help people to attain better health and wellbeing. Watch this space!
