INTUITION & SCIENCE COMBINE
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. We're expanding into offering more chances to move those limbs, with flexibility, partner, movement and dance sessions in the pipeline.
In massage therapy, it's a very compelling thing to use the magic of intuition in conjunction with evidence-based practice - where each person who arrives for treatment needs a particular combination of my skills 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.
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.
One philosophy that has guided me all these years is taking care of our natural world, where I believe that we vote with our money every day. To this end, you can rest assured that the linen used is organic cotton, the electricity generating the all-important warmth in the treatment room is from renewable sources and the soap in the bathroom is free from palm oil. Even the bank is part of this underlying principle: it doesn't invest in fossil fuels. Just a few examples, but you get the idea.
I look forward to working with you, 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 appointment) $90
60 mins treatment (75 mins appointment) $105
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) $95
60 mins treatment (75 mins appt) $115
90 mins treatment $150

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, I am 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.
