What a find! On a recent holiday, while staying in a cool heritage house B&B in Clovelly, and on my way to the fabulous Gordons for breakfast I walked passed an unassuming shop window, which I thought said ‘Massage by Theresa’ Why not? thought I, long haul travel leaves one rather out of sorts. Imagine my surprise when I was offered an appointment with Mark. Is Theresa on holiday then? No? Okay, but I thought it was funny. So I booked a massage and facial for the following day. Now I have had a few massages/facials in London, where, prior to treatment my feet have been cleansed and dried by dimmed light with accompanying crashing wave music filling the silence, heady scented oils and a feeling of other-worldliness. And I enjoyed the experiences very much. There are no such contrivances at Massagebythesea. Its the real deal. The room is warm, enclosed with white muslin ceiling drapes like a Mughal tent, and the treatment has to be the best I have ever enjoyed. As a woman of a certain age I was somewhat apprehensive, but Mark was amazing. My appointment was on time, Mark discussed any ailments or pressure sensitivity and afterwards I felt like a new woman. It wasn’t just a ‘massage’ but a restorative therapy. I had another a few weeks later before my long haul home. If you want the sounds of crashing waves music, you can have the real thing as massagebythesea has a summertime pitch down at Coogee beach. Thanks Mark. Great experience.

I highly recommend the pregnancy massage by Raquel! I have been twice already & booked in for my third massage. She is so considerate of me at all times whilst she massages me.

I feel so much taller, energised and I can expect a wonderful sleep tonight. Very restorative.

I feel like I am floating! I feel instant relief from what felt like constant pain. Best massage I’ve ever had! Thank you (being treated by Rudy)

I was originally recommended to Massage by the sea by a friend to deal with chronic shoulder pain as a result of a previous injury.
I was teamed up with a therapist who took the time to understand my issue and worked with me to work out a plan of recovery; within a couple of months of regular massage I no longer had the pain that had been with me for several years.
I have kept going since because I recognized the ongoing benefits to my general wellbeing and it is an excellent stress relief.
I have since tried a number of different therapists in the Massage by the sea team and can say that their professionalism and dedication to detail have yet to let me down; I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Jason is in a league of excellence all on his own. Amazing healing hands. I believe I will have saved tens of thousands of dollars in acupuncture by having regular preventative treatments. Thank you for all your care and attention, Jason. It’s appreciated.
Jason was fantastic. I feel so relaxed – Incredible range of techniques and exactly the right pressure. I should do this more often!
My massage was both therapeutic and relaxing. Simon was great

10 years ago I had a brain tumour removed, and was left with very bad muscle tension headaches. Pain relief medication only worked for a little while so I decided to try a more holistic treatment. So for 10 years I have been a regular massage client at many massage studios.
Six years ago I came to Coogee and there are many places to get a massage here, but I found Massage by the sea. I can honestly recommend them to anyone wanting to have a massage. Shareen and the team there are fantastic. When the weather is nice, Wylies Baths is a great place, as you can hear the ocean as you get massaged, but the Centre in Havelock Avenue is also great (no matter what the weather).
After 6 years of regular massages with Massage by the sea I can say that, not only my physical body is feeling better, but also my soul.
