Michele Pocknee – Massage Therapist

Michele Pocknee graduated from Endeavour College of Natural Health in Brisbane, with a Diploma of Remedial Massage. She has a special interest in preventative health and general wellbeing.

Her skills lie in her ability to feel her client’s needs, through her work as a manual therapist, she has learnt to listen with her hands. Her client’s presenting conditions are treated from an anatomical perspective as well as a mind-body connection. She focuses on helping her clients return to health and wellness through a process of gentle touch therapies that have immediate physical and mental benefits, felt long after her treatments are over.

She offers her clients a variety of complementary treatments including: remedial massage, relaxation and aromatherapy massage, craniosacral therapy (CST), manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) massage, and bioelectric massage.

With bioelectric massage and meridian therapy, she uses a small electrical signal through her hands, and follows the body’s meridian pathways to remove blockages and promote self-healing.

Her most recent training in Clinical Aromatherapy has deepened her knowledge as to the benefits of aromatic plant oils. The uses are varied including but not limited to insomnia, anxiety, mental tiredness, fatigue, circulation, inflammation, skin rashes, burns, scar tissue, respiratory congestion, muscular aches and spasms.

She believes in holistic integrative treatments for her clients.

She likes to stay fit by practicing hot Yoga and hot Pilates under infrared lights, which have incredible therapeutic benefits, this has become an integral part of her health routine, a must to feel her best for the benefit of her clients.

Michele will be taking appointments from mid May this year.

She is also a masters level triathlete and has a last name suspiciously similar to Graham….. could it be? Yes, in fact they are.
