I have been massaging in a clinic setting since 2004, when I joined the Armidale Healing Centre. I decided to open my own clinic in 2009, and am the owner of Able Bodies. I specialise in Deep Remedial, Sports massage, Trigger point & Myofacial release. I am also Work Cover accredited (RMT 5499), and have sucessfully completed many return-to-work plans for a variety of workplace injuries. I consider that the client is the focus of any treatment, and aim to tailor all treatments to the needs and requirements of the client.
I have had 5 years experience doing Thai Foot Massage at Able Bodies. Thai foot Massage is a massage of the lower legs and feet that involves hands on stretching, along with the use of a stick to stimulate the reflex points on the feet which correspond to the internal organs of the body.

I have been massaging professionally since 2008.
I moved to Armidale from Byron Shire 2013 to complete a University degree. I massaged part-time whilst completing the physics degree. I completed my Bachelor of Science at UNE in 2016, taking the opportunity to share my passion of massage to Armidale full time. I have a Diploma of Remedial Massage and am equally comfortable giving relaxing Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, remedial massage or any combination thereof. I specialise in soothing flowing yet effective remedial/deep tissue massage.
An indication of my skills is reflected by John Douglas, the owner of Kiva Spa, Byron Shire, noting that ‘... Craig receives the most requests from all of our 40 highly skilled therapists. Kiva Spa is known as the most popular Day Spa in Byron Shire, achieving the accolade of being in the top 10 Spas of Australia [Sunday Herald].’
