Dip.Remdial Massage | Dip.Sport(Athlete Support Services) | ATMS accredited
Hi, I’m Kanako! I have been a Remedial Massage therapist for
15+ years. It’s okay to call me Kay, which is the easier name I give to the
barista at a café, hence:
I moved to Australia from Japan to chase my passion, my love of Rugby union. With the intention of getting involved in Rugby I completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage and Diploma of Sport (Athlete Support Services) with the Australasian College of Natural Therapies (ACNT) in 2008. Luckily enough, I got to work with the Eastern Suburbs District Rugby Union Football Club (Easts) and Sydney Football Club. During this work experience at these sports clubs, I gained valuable sports massage skills. After ACNT, I had worked in the busy clinic, Health Heaven in Sydney CBD for about 7 years in total, alongside skilful therapists, treating a variety of clients for lots of different reasons. Since then I have been working independently but closely with osteopaths, physios, PTs, pilates instructors, etc. It is true that I started massage because of an interest in sports. All the therapists I have worked with, all upskill training I have completed, and all the clients I have treated have deepened my perspective of manual therapies. Now, I treat a client with techniques integrating Remedial, Sports, Deep Tissue massage, Myofascial Release and Craniosacral therapy.
