Chris Sutton
Neuromuscular Massage Therapist

I aim to help you manage stress, reduce pain, correct posture or keep you playing your sport. By tailoring my treatments through the use of specific and targeted massage, stretches and exercises my one and only goal is to see you feeling better.

NMT...
NMT employs a variety of techniques that targets muscles and the nervous system together. NMT is not only about the massage techniques used, but takes into account the whole person. Posture, movement and the mind are all considered with Neuromuscular Therapy.

How I work...

No two sessions with me are the same, this is because NMT is client-goal focused; your treatments will vary depending on what you need and want on the day.

Movement dysfunction can lead to abnormal joint wear and strain and can be the preventable cause of many injuries.
Habitual movement patterns, posture and stress can compound these issues which is why regular massage can be so beneficial.

Massage therapy can help by activating and re-engaging switched off muscles, reducing stiffness and tension in muscles acting on joints, relax the body and mind to manage stress, enhance body awareness, all to keep you feeling right and doing the things you love doing!

Every session starts with a consultation that involves questioning and orthopaedic testing, that way I find the best treatment for you on the day.

In my sessions I use: Swedish relaxation massage, trigger point therapy, deep tissue, myofascial release, mobilisation and PNF stretching.

More about me...
Before starting out as a massage therapist I used to work in television. My job title was an On Air Controller and I got to watch TV for eight hours a day. Sounds like bliss, right?
Except I was bored and wanted more. I wanted to really help people and I had a passion for science and living healthy.

Since becoming a massage therapist I have seen so many others improve in their sport, recover from injuries, manage chronic pain. I have even noticed an increase in my own health and wellness.

In my spare time I practice Mixed Martial Arts and explore the beautiful surroundings of the Hibiscus Coast. I especially love to walk the beach and parks with my two daughters, River and Alice, and my wife Myra.
