Donna Elsey is a fully qualified and insured massage therapist with over a decade of massage experience. She attained her massage qualifications in Canada, the country with the most rigorous massage therapy training in the world.

Here she completed a two year massage therapy degree with honours in 2009, followed by a year of training in kinesiology. Her massage therapy degree consisted of 2200 hours of intensive study and training, including in-depth modules on anatomy and physiology, pathology, nutrition, hydrotherapy and remedial exercise. In addition to this, she has completed further training in hot stone therapy, Thai yoga massage, Esalen massage, deep tissue massage, and strain-counterstrain technique.

Donna’s approach to massage therapy is tailored and holistic, with an emphasis on getting to know her clients’ needs, goals and preferences. She is proficient in techniques which are clinically appropriate, but also possesses an intuitive sense of what would best suit the needs of her clients from day to day. For those with an interest in prolonging the effects of the treatment at home, Donna is also experienced in offering tailored advice on exercises, lifestyle and stretching.

Having recently become a mum herself, Donna has a deep understanding and passion for helping her pregnant clients ease through the beautiful (and potentially challenging), transition into motherhood that goes beyond her clinical training. Donna also practices what she preaches, with a passion for healthy living, proper nutrition and exercise. She has trained for a Tough Mudder, practices yoga, enjoys swing dancing, and receives regular massage.
