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+
