I now have a page on
I paid natural therapies to make it easier to find my details, but I am using my website to make it easier to find me on natural therapies!
And here is the mandatory link to my facebook page (yawn).
Donna Lou's Waxing for Men and Women:
Department of Sports and Recreation: "Sport and recreation builds stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities." To that I would add that it builds stronger, healthier and happier bodies and minds!
Sponsorships for Sports Clubs
I can help sports clubs by offering discounts to their members or providing my services at a reduced rate on matchday.
As is usual with sponsorship, there is a quid pro quo. I would expect to be listed as a sponsor in advertising or in programmes or on uniforms, or to be invited to the odd social. However, my main reason for making this offer is that:
I love sports massage!!!
I didn't intend to get involved in sports massage, it just happened! I wanted to learn remedial massage to relieve aches and pains, but if you check the Client Feedback, you'll probably agree I must have some skill in tuning athletes up prior to big events.
For this I have to thank the Rockingham Rugby Union Club for three years of work experience, a great afternoon working with the Curtin Sprint team at the Wanneroo Gift (think Stawell Gift), and working at three Ironman events in Busselton, and the Four day Cape to Cape Mountain Bike Race in Margaret River.
There is nothing better than helping to fine tune the muscles as an athlete goes in search of a Personal Best in an Ironman or Half Ironman etc, and it is great when they report that after the race the muscle soreness is less than they are used to.
Performance enhancing massage
Can sports massage improve your performance and produce a PB (Personal Best)? Absolutely!
For example, work on the suboccipital muscles (at the base of your skull at the back of the neck) using craniosacral therapy helps cyclists enormously, as does work on the ITB or iliotibial band.
Sports massage is an increasing part of my business.
My trading name of The Remedial Massage Guy for a long time gave people the impression that I only do ache, pain and headache relief. Far from it! I think I am one of the better sports masseurs around because I have such an interest in making a difference to athletes' performance and love working at sports events.
I am also finding more and more people from the navy who are keeping fit with running, X Fit etc are coming to see me, and this may well increase with Medibank's new contract to provide services for the ADF (Australian Defence Forces)
Cape to Cape Mountain Bike Race 2012
I have worked at this awesome event for the last two years. It has only been going five years, and from 100 competitors in the first year, there were over 1000 this year.
This year there were 14 masseurs on the peak days working in the massage gazebos after the race and many people also availed themselves of a mobile massage back in their hotels.
