massage & bodywork

Sue Hawksley is not your average massage therapist. She brings to her distinctive treatments over 25 years’ experience as a therapist and a professional dancer’s knowledge of movement. She not only kneads out the knots, she will help you feel better and move better.

Sue's treatments incorporate a mix of modalities including holistic, remedial, deep-tissue, myofascial release and swedish massage, as well as bodywork techniques such as yoga-massage, structural integration and the Eyerman technique (itself a synthesis of massage, Feldenkrais and Yoga).

Regular massage integrated into your training programme or daily life can signficantly improve performance, reduce tension and stress, assist with pain and injury management, and promote healing. Massage is generally very safe but there are a few health conditions for which treatments will need to be adapted or should be avoided, so you will be asked to complete a health check beforehand. Massage is complementary to medical treatment, but should not be considered a cure or a substitute.

Sue trained with Sara Thomas at the Massage Training Institute in London, qualifying in Holistic Massage, Anatomy and Physiology (ITEC, MTI), and with Ken Eyerman School of Bodywork & Movement. Sue's unique approach continues to evolve through ongoing professional development with practitioners and educators at the forefront of bodywork and somatic movement practices. She has previously worked as a massage therapist at Dance Base in Edinburgh; Natureworks in London, the Integrated Health Clinics at Holmes Place, and as a volunteer for the charity Freedom From Torture and supporting charity endurance events such as the Edinburgh Marathon. She is a member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapists.

Sue is currently practicing at RUB MASSAGE in Adelaide.
