Get to know me

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Frozen Shoulder

Patrick is passionate about treating people living with chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. As complex conditions, careful application of massage techniques can improve symptoms by increasing circulation, reducing inflammation and relieving nervous system sensitivity.

Research has shown that massage consistently improves the quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia. Patrick uses myofascial release and connective tissue techniques which have been shown to reduce fatigue and stiffness, and improve quality of life.

A career in helping people through massage was a natural choice for Patrick. Determined to be an effective therapist, Patrick initially studied the CERT IV in Relaxation Massage from Endeavour College, before gaining a Diploma of Remedial Massage from the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy.

Patrick believes in the potential of natural therapies to aid the body’s innate ability to heal. He sees his role as to help patients identify blockages to the natural healing process and apply the right treatment to clear them. Patrick works as part of a collaborative team to provide this holistic approach to achieving health and maintaining wellbeing.

“When I first came to see Rebecca about my cystic acne, I was unhappy with my skin and it was effecting my self esteem. I had already tried the pill, prescription creams and antibiotics for 10yrs, none of which made a lasting difference and the antibiotics caused digestives problems. Rebecca identified the cause of the acne and restored digestive health, which has also cleared my skin. I’ve been without acne now for at least 5 months. When I look in the mirror I feel confident and happy with my skin and friends comment on how healthy I look! Thanks Rebecca!” Emily, Newport

“Before I came to see Rebecca I had terrible eczema all over my arms, fingers and sometimes my legs, since childhood. It was embarrassing, particularly as a teenager and into my twenties. People would think I’d fallen over and scarred my arms. Rebecca is very easy to talk to and explains everything clearly, as to how the treatments will help and how long it will take. Since seeing Rebecca the eczema has gone away and the scarring decreased significantly” Chelsea, Eltham
