Hello, I’m Jacob and I am a Remedial Massage Therapist here at HANDS from HEAVEN. I completed my Diploma in August 2018 with Q Academy and have loved my work ever since. What I really enjoy is the problem-solving side of my profession – Not only treating a condition but helping you to find the cause of the issue.
My interest in the field of massage came about in a strange way when I was in the Australian Infantry and the unlucky recipient of an ankle injury. During rehabilitation of my injury I sought massage to relieve some pain, and to my surprise found that regular treatments had a much greater effect than other therapies. I found that Remedial Massage reduced the pain, increased range of motion and decreased the total rehabilitation time.
To not only hear about the benefits, but to see and experience them made me want to learn and provide the same for others.
My interests moving forward is to offer Dry Needling and Cupping Therapy to compliment my Remedial Massage techniques, with an overall plan to treat all walks of life – whether you are injured, an athlete, pregnant or just in pain. Most importantly I never want to stop learning!
I am married and have two amazing (mischievous) children that enjoy taking up my spare time… and being a father with young children I know just how important winding down can be, and the stress they can cause.
If you are in pain, not feeling yourself and want to leave feeling completely refreshed, you NEED to get a treatment from me!
