MASSAGE AND MOVEMENT THERAPIES TO
RESET, UNFOLD & ENJOY MOVING
WAKE UP, MOVE BETTER
Studio RE is the REincarnation of Elizabeth Collins Massage Therapy that has since 2017 been taking care of South Gippslanders and those who visit the gorgeous Prom Coast.
Feeling stuck, stressed or sore?
We really enjoy helping clients reset their bodies and find a new way of being. Massage treatments and movement classes reset fascia, muscles and mind, and these have worked particularly well with the older client to 'wake up' bodies that have seemingly slowed to a standstill - a really important first step to moving better.
For young and old
Our trained remedial and relaxation therapists use the magic of intuition in conjunction with evidence-based practice - where each person who arrives for treatment needs a particular combination of skill and consideration.
Pregnant, young, 'old salt', menopausal, special needs, hard-core runner: each has their own story and preferences. Gently, we work together to find the best way to interact and find answers, which may involve working with other health professionals along the way. It's a team effort between client and therapist.
Bodies are meant to move!
The same approach applies to our movement and dance sessions: come as you are and we start from there. You never know what's possible, and with expert practitioners there to guide you, it's going to be a very satisfying process.
We vote with our money every day. To this end, you can rest assured that the linen used is organic cotton, the soap in the bathroom is free from palm oil and financial institutions don't invest in fossil fuels. We encourage you to enjoy a massage then go out and plant more trees!
We look forward to seeing it all unfold, in many ways.
When you're aching to just still yourself and smooth out sore muscles, a session of flowing, feel-good-but-firm massage will have you floating out the door. No fluffy lightweight techniques here, but a sensitively tailored session.
Our Relaxation Therapists have been chosen not only for their skills but more importantly their empathy, to make you feel like you're in the right place, safe and able to 'drop off' - so very necessary in these busy times.
45 mins treatment (60 mins appt) $93
60 mins treatment (75 mins appt) $108
This is for specific problems, where you'll likely find that an ache in one area will be contributing to another, and another...
A more thorough pre-treatment assessment will guide the focus, and the techniques will be more specific and felt more deeply - all within your tolerance level.
But as everyone needs a little respite, there's some cruisey time to unwind those deeper tensions.
45 mins treatment (60 mins appt) $98
60 mins treatment (75 mins appt) $118
90 mins treatment $153
Health fund claimable
Pregnancy massage is a perfect way to reduce stress and promote general well-being during pregnancy. NurtureLife Pregnancy Massage Practitioners are highly skilled therapists in pregnancy massage, guided by Catherine McInerney, Australia's leading expert and educator in pregnancy massage. (See Pregnancy Massage Australia for more information)
Developed by Pregnancy Massage Australia, this specialised massage treatment method focuses on nurturing both mother and baby. It assists in relieving many of the common causes of discomfort during pregnancy, such as groin, lower back and hip pain, oedema, as well as neck tension following breastfeeding and much more.
As a NurtureLife Practitioner, Elizabeth is trained to watch for the little signs of conditions that may need to be referred to your health care team. Best of all, I have lots of ways to keep you and your baby safe and comfortable throughout your treatments, and stay up to date with the latest research and methods.
When your back, hips, hamstrings or shoulders feel locked up it gets harder to move and feel lively.
As a certified Flexibility Coach, Elizabeth teaches three principles to get to a better place with just 15 minutes a day, using a range of poses that are sustained to get real benefits.
You can access this learning with a 1:1 session with Elizabeth, or watch our for stretching and movement classes held at the Sandy Point Community Centre. Classes have now finished for 2023.
1:1 Session 30 mins $45
1:1 Session 60 mins $80
S.o.S. classes: $10 for 45 mins
NOTE: this type of stretching isn't suited if you're hypermobile or pregnant
GIFTED TOUCH VOUCHERS

People don't need so much stuff. Gifting someone special with a massage voucher will help them move better, with a calmer mind and happier outlook. You can't get that so easily out of a box.
Once payment is done you can collect the pretty version from two locations in the area (Sandy Point General Store and Revelations in Foster) or we're happy to send it in the mail if there's sufficient lead time. Click on the button below to send an email, letting us know what value you'd like it to be, recipient name etc and we'll set it up for you.
Pay it Forward - International Women's Day
To mark International Women’s Day, Elizabeth would like to give you an opportunity:
"This is a photo of my daughter Erica and I in the very room where she entered the world. Life throws curve balls sometimes and I found myself in the early years being a single mother to this gorgeous child. Motherhood is the best experience of my life, without a doubt, but I have lived experience of raising a child as a single parent and I know that it was the most stressful period I have ever known. There’s just a lot to take care of. Thankfully I had an amazing support team around me and this little girl is now nearly ready to go out into the world healthy, educated and with strong family and social connections.
So, I’d like to put it out there: an opportunity to pay it forward. If you are in a position to do so, cover the cost of a massage treatment for a woman who is raising her child/ren as a single mother. I will reduce my fee to $100 for a full hour of stress reducing luxury for someone who really needs it.
You might fund a bundle or just one - whatever you choose to do, it will be sorely needed and much appreciated. I'll work with local community organisations to connect with recipients."
