Michael Wilby has been a massage therapist on the Central Coast since 2005. He is trained in Remedial Massage, Myofascial Release and offers therapeutic and sports massage, lymphatic drainage, as well as hot stone massage. Michael has also studied Aromatherapy and Reflexology.
Michael was studying aromatherapy at a local college, following a long-time dream to become a herbalist, when he discovered massage. He found that tactile touch in forms of movement had a profound effect on the body. He discovered that when stress builds over time resulting in illness or injury, the rejuvenating abilities of relaxation through massage can restore stress receptors bringing balance back to mind, body and soul. It changed his direction completely and he began a course in remedial massage.
Michael believes in empowering you to be the owner of your own health – helping you develop the knowledge to support your own health and wellbeing. He is a big believer in preventative health and personalised treatment.
Michael can assess your bio-mechanics and posture to tailor a treatment specific plan to your needs, including posture, stretching, and exercise specific injury prevention. He has particular success helping his clients with headaches and fatigue, chronic pain syndromes, lactic acid, injury prevention, sport performance, sleep deprivation, anxiety, depression, illness, strains and sprains, reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure, increase circulation and nutrients to cells.
