Lane Cove Physio Emma
Emma RaeMassage Therapist & Personal Trainer
Emma’s journey in the health industry began in 2016 when she became a personal trainer. Her curiosity continually grew on the link between postural conditions and pain patterns and how to improve and manage them. She went on to obtain a diploma in remedial massage, which allowed her to gain a deeper knowledge into musculoskeletal anatomy and how the manipulation of soft tissues can have incredibly positive outcomes, especially in conjunction with other modalities. Emma enjoys working between with health professionals (such as physiotherapists) and exploring how a combined strategy of soft tissue manipulation, strength, stability and mobility can improve performance, posture, pain and quality of life. She uses techniques such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release and deep tissue massage. Her special interests include treating fascial lines, musculoskeletal alignment, lower back pain and chronic tension headaches.
