About

monica-image

As a child I remember coming over the bridges into Paradise Point on our holidays, and feeling a sense of relaxation with just seeing the water. This is when my love and connection with water, and Paradise Point, began. Growing up in Brisbane, I was raised in the gumtree-lined outskirts of the city, where it was tranquil and I was able to get close to nature. I studied remedial massage therapy 15 years ago when I chose to get out from behind a desk and work closer helping people. I got my feet wet in the industry getting jobs in beauty salons, day spas and gyms, and was able to see all sides of remedial therapy for 5 years before deciding to go out on my own.

I have always believed the benefits of joining the “remedial” and “luxury” sides of the massage experience together. I have been to many physiotherapists, gym massage clinics and even beauty salons with curtained rooms, not providing much privacy between you and your therapist, with very basic surroundings. My vision has always been to create somewhere very special to go for your therapy, providing beautifully relaxing atmosphere, for your privacy and comfort. These little things, I believe, are the big things – the more comfortable and relaxed you are, the better the results from your therapy.

I have called the northern end of the Gold Coast home for over 12 years. Being a part of the local community of Paradise Point enables me to stay connected with all the clients, and appreciate the stresses and demands of local small business owners and their families. I love to be at forefront of the business, whether that be as the first point of call on the phone or as you walk in, and still as a Remedial and Laser Therapist.

Total Essence Remedial Massage Centre continues to grow because of the high quality Remedial Therapists that become apart of the team. Our reputation continues to be well known on the Gold Coast and Brisbane as having outstanding, results driven therapies and treatments in a beautiful, relaxing environment. Our team are constantly updating their skill and knowledge to be able to give you the best possible outcome to live the life you deserve and want.
