Anne Chiew

Febie is an excellent myotherapist who treats my 82 year old elderly mother on a fortnightly basis. I originally found Febie as I was seeking a massage therapist that can speak Cantonese. From the first appointment, you can tell straight away Febie genuinely cares for her client’s well being, going above and beyond other massage services. My Mum wants to live independently at home for as long as possible and Febie has certainly helped us achieve this goal. Not only have the regular massages made Mum feel better and become more flexible, she has helped my Mum stay strong with injury prevention strategies such as teaching her strengthening exercises, introducing her to Tai Chi, sourcing orthotics and hip pads. Highly recommended A+

Greg Patten

Febie has been terrific in helping me recover from surgery.

Michelle Ritoli

The first time I was treated by Febie, I was surprised that I only required one session before I started to feel so much better. Febie is very good and patient at trying to understand what you’re problems are treating you on the spot and then suggesting exercises to do at work or at home. Febie has also treated me for other issues like sinus and not just my neck and back problems. Cant thank this lady enough for helping me feel better.

Valerie Zahra-from 10to8

Febie is amazing!!! Highly skilled and incredibly knowledgeable. I highly recommend Febie. It’s like I walk away feeling like I have a new body after each treatment.

Emily Kiernan

I have been seeing Febie for years now – she is excellent and I would recommend her to anyone. She has helped alleviate significant pain in my neck and back and, in addition, treats injuries or aches as they arise. She is also flexible with her hours which is very helpful. Thank you Febie!

Rachael Crane

Febie is the type of muscle therapist you hope to meet when you are looking to feel better. I saw her for general thoracic knots I have had forever it seems and for fluid around my legs ankles. I experienced a long consultation involving muscle massage deep tissue relief and acupuncture. She asked lots of questions and is extremely strong person yet a caring individual that is passionate about myotherapy and the importance of a healthy lymph system. I was deep breathing in my sleep and woke up the day after feeling 2 kgs lighter from fluid release. I am so glad I said yes to experiencing acupuncture the knots had never felt better..

Melissa Spiteri

Febie’s massages are certainly the best in the west. she can attest to her skills, instincts and therapeutical powers. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend febie and encourage anyone who is looking for TOTAL WELLBEING to visit febie sooner rather than later. She is a loving, caring and just such an amazing person! I look forward to many more massages with her.

Jessica Drew-from 10-8

I feel so blessed that I found Febie! The practice is local to me in Ashburton, and after reading some glowing reviews, I booked a same day consultation for an issue with my knee. Febie is the first practitioner that I have seen in a long time who did a whole body assessment, not just focusing on where the pain is manifesting. Febie went above and beyond to diagnose my symptoms and provide pain relief with a variation of modalities including cupping, dry needling and massage which was firm but soft. Febie explained to me in detail what is happening in my body and I left with a few simple exercises and suggestions to aid in my recovery. She is a warm, funny caring lady and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. I am so relieved I have finally found a practitioner I can 100% put my trust in.

Sean Ewinger

I have seen numerous medical specialists and Febie brings a thoroughness I have never encountered before. She focuses on addressing the issue regardless of the time each appointment takes, to ensure you get the necessary treatment needed to address your problem. She is very experienced and educated and has an innate sense of what the issue is before treatment even begins. Her treatments have made a huge positive difference to me and I can not recommend Febie highly enough.

Lina Trettel-from 10-8

Febie your dedication and commitment to a high quality service and customer outcome is outstanding. You have identified and resolve many concerns for me with outstanding results. Thanks.

Chrostine Mellberg Chan-from 10-8

I was very happy with the consultation and treatment – will definitely be back.

Linda Castrogiovanni-from 10-8

Absolute magician I was in so much pain I suffer from migraines and with the work done it’s made the biggest difference

Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality

I have been to many practitioners over the past 40 years and can honestly say that Febie’s care, knowledge and treatment skills are of a remarkably high standard. After only a few treatments Febie has increased my mobility in so many areas that had been partially frozen for years. She has also dramatically reduced much of my discomfort and swelling. Febie’s easy to follow personalised, remedial exercise advice has dramatically improved my posture and strength. I cannot recommend Febie highly enough. She is one of those rare practitioners who truly warrants the term ‘healer’. I am so grateful that I have met her.
