Leesa brings her extensive experience as a Remedial Massage Therapist to the clinic. Leesa works closely with our Physiotherapy team in treating a wide range of conditions. She has been practising since 1996 as a remedial massage therapist, and as a qualified naturopath since 2000. She is an accredited member of the ATMS (Australian Traditional Medicine Society) .
Leesa joined the team at Burleigh Heads Physiotherapy Centre in March 2010, from her own practice, Energised Health Natural Medicine Clinic which she ran from 1999-2010 in Miami on the Gold Coast. Pregnancy massage is an area of special interest for Leesa, as is women's health in general. She has a special Pregnancy Table that allows pregnant mothers to lie comfortably and face down during their massage therapy session.
Leesa is an experienced Sports Massage therapist, and has treated many elite athletes, including triathlon and kayaking Olympians, professional cyclists and elite surf life saving competitors. She also has a large clientele of “weekend warriors”, as you don’t need to be an elite competitor to benefit from massage therapy.
Massage therapy is a great form of treatment for those with back and neck pain. Leesa has been successfully treating patients with acute and chronic spinal pain for many years.
