Massage in Wanaka

Marlene Laureys - After gaining a Diploma in aromatherapy and aromatherapy massage in 1997 I went on to learn trigger point massage techniques under both a Wanaka Physiotherapy clinic and Osteopath for 5 years.

I further specialized in trigger point therapy in Christchurch under guidance of a Physiotherapist who teaches Neuromuscular techniques to physiotherapists all over the world, and in different sports massage techniques, being part of the fantastic Russley Sports Massage team for 5 years.

I worked both from Physical Sense Physiotherapy Christchurch from 2008 till 2013 and Russley Sports Massage from 2009 till 2014.

My client base ranges from professional athletes a well as week end warriors or people just wanting headache or sore neck release. Don't take my word for it, go check out my testimonials.

I have always lived an active life style, both professionally and privately. I enjoy being outdoors, and love lifestyle sports. Windsurfing, skiing, hiking, kitesurfing, surfing, and a bit of running and biking to keep cardio fit. I also practice yoga, at least three times a week.

I moved back home to "Wanaka" because I love the place and my beautiful family and friends are here.



Tatiana - I am originally from Argentina, and have been traveling for some time. I love New Zealand, particularly Wanaka, and have been here for almost three years, working as a sports massage therapist at Wanaka Sports Massage.

I´ve been working for more than ten years in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, spin, pilates and stretching instructor, having the chance to assist athletes and week- end warriors. Training myself and others I realized how important a good massage is to keep the balance in our bodies.

I studied and practiced massage for years to help my clients to maintain or reach a state of well being. I am trained in relaxation massage, sports, deep tissue and trigger points technique. I believe that massage is a complete experience where body mind and soul get reunited again through music,   healing touch and awareness.


Kristyna - I am from the Czech Republic.
I studied physiotherapy and received a bachelor's degree with honors.
My education included clinical practice and a lot of anatomy, kinesiology and how to  diagnose.

I worked as a physiotherapist in a private rehab center with ambulatory care.
I had a variety of clients  including athletes.

I arrived in New Zealand a couple of months ago and fell in love with this country immediately.
Since I can't work here as a physiotherapist, and I love helping people, I decided to use my massage skills.

I believe that massage, trigger point release, myofascial mobilization and more are important parts of the healing process.
I always look at the body as a whole and try to focus on the key problems.
I also understand how frustrating it is to feel pain and not being able to perform at your best.

I am a keen outdoor person, love hiking and tramping and sleeping under a dark starry sky is definitely one of my favorite activities.
I  also enjoy  skiing, snowboarding, volleyball, via ferrata climbing, indoor climbing and hopefully one day outdoor climbing and last but not least yoga.
I also like to try new activities such as white water canoeing, paragliding or canyoning.
I am looking forward to meet you and work with you to achieve the best possible results.
