Been going at it some time now!

Rebecca from West Auckland Medical Acupuncture & Remedial Massage

I'm heading towards 21 years of doing Massage! I remember how nervous I was when I started in the Blue Mountains Katoomba. Massage is not the easiest thing to learn, especially when you have dyslexia! My first course was Aromatherapy, it was a year-long, and couldn't believe I was committing to a full year at the time lol.

I found what I loved.
Later on, while working full-time and studying part-time I continued on to finish my Level 6 Qualification (known as Remedial Massage) I then was able to do a whole raft of cool courses of my choice when I was qualified, things that really interested me like Kahuna, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Reflexology, Polarity, and more!

I did this while having home school students in my house, AND working 5 shifts a week at a 5 5-star resort in the Blue Mountains, an International Tourist zone in NSW. Beautiful place!

While I was there I got so much further training, in Facials, Pamper Packages, and Hot Stone Massage it led me to do a new course in Beauty! For a year I was working and studying 7 days a week! I was then and still am so passionate about massage.

21 years on, still using touch to help others, but now also qualified as an Acupuncturist!
