Pouring Massage Oil


 Hi - I'm Bernie, of Southwest Muscular Therapy.

 I have over 21 years qualified training & experience in clinical, sports & pregnancy massage, while also specialising in complicated needs, palliative care, post surgical, menopausal support, lymphatic & older person care.

My initial Therapeutic Massage & Clinical Nutrition training was completed through the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine & I have continued with professional development over the years, in related interests. I have also worked in aged care diversional therapy for over 10 years, am a certified Adult & Tertiary Educator & Wellness Coach.

I bring a personal & confident touch to your choice of holistic treatment or pure luxury session, in my private & peaceful homebased setting in Halswell, Christchurch. I enjoy helping you meet your personal health needs & goals.

All health & wellbeing consultations are individually tailored to you & can even be a mixture of treatment & relaxation. You can be certain of your personalised session with me every time, rather than not knowing who you might get on any given day.

Exercise, stretching, nutrition & lifestyle advice is available with each consultation.

Wellbeing Support Coaching Consultations are available upon request.

EFTPOS & Gifting Vouchers are available at the studio clinic.

Gifting vouchers are not available online, please call me directly (021 1088620) to purchase a voucher.

I proudly use NZ made Pure FX massage balms.

Please note: This is not physiotherapy, medical advice or counselling.
