Hi! I'm Arthur Galletly. (That's Scottish for Go Lightly!)

I am best viewed from the rear! I had 12 sessions of bodywork and you can see the before and after effects on my posture. I have had scoliosis since my teen. About 20 years ago I start to get pain in the lower back, right shoulder, neck, and I couldn't turn my head very far.

I spent years and thousands of dollars on chiros, physios and acupuncture. I thought I had tried everything. Occasionally I would get some temporary relief, but after several years I was in as much pain as at the beginning. Then I started attending massage courses, firstly some weekend massage courses, not so much to learn how to do it, but to see if it might help. Lo and behold it did!

I had a remedial massage once a week for about 3 months, after which my pain had gone and some of the curvature in the spine had been ironed out.

At the time I had a permanent, reasonably well paid job as a TAFE Lecturer in IT, having previously spent years working with multinational computer corporations in the UK, with a career spanning over 25 years in the IT industry.

However, even though it was a huge step into the unknown and I could not get Austudy or any financial help, I felt compelled to spend two and a half years studying to enable a change of career to become a Remedial Massage Therapist for several reasons:

What's in a name?

I trade as The Remedial Massage Guy, so I clearly practice Remedial Massage but I also provide Sports massage, Pregnancy massage and rehabilitation work for injuries. I am best known for relieving aches, pains, headaches and stress, and correcting posture via techniques known as structural bodywork and structural integration. I also do relaxing massages.

I live in an area where massage seems to be the solution to the unemployment problem and there are between 150 and 170 (I estimate) people keenly vying for your custom, and so you have many choices available. There are about 50 practitioners of Remedial Massage offering Health Fund Rebates in Rockingham!
