Business Owner and Remedial Therapist
A bit about myself and how this business began…
I started this business over 20 years ago as a Remedial Massage Therapist
(my maiden name was Fearnley)
Prior to this I completed a Diploma of Education for Secondary School and taught Physical Education, Mathematics and Outdoor Education in the local area.
At this time I was also heavily involved in competition athletics at national level over 400m & 800m and had begun receiving massage treatments. I was amazed at the benefits. I completed a massage course and became consumed. I still only thought giving massages would be an `after work’ hours venture, however, I was wrong. The demand for good Remedial massage treatments was very high and within a couple of years I found myself working full time hours and loving it!
I am and have always been very passionate about helping people and find it extremely rewarding to be given the opportunity to provide such a positive impact on a person’s wellbeing.
In my treatments I use Remedial Massage techniques to assist people with a wide range of conditions including acute and chronic pain, postural imbalances, sports injuries, headaches, muscle and joint aches and tightness. I also do relaxation massage because that's what we all need at times!
The clients I treat range from children right through to the elderly.
These days I have had to reduce my hours and am only available on Wednesdays and some Mondays during school hours.
Besides overseeing Fearnley Massage I am also fortunate to help the community by working as a professional FRV firefighter (12 years) and am a mother of two.
Yes, my career has taken a few exciting turns over the years.
As you can gather I love life and helping people and always strive like to get the most out of each and every day. I still have a keen interest in exercise and training and enjoy the challenge of getting the most out of my body.
Massage is an essential part of my life.

Jess is not working at Fearnley Massage for now. She had a baby girl at the start of the year so motherhood duties are a high priority at the moment.
There is a chance Jess may return at some stage ...so watch this space :)
Jess completed her Diploma in Remedial Massage at the Southern School of Natural Therapies.
She has a strong interest in health and well being, and sees massage as a central aspect in maintaining balance in the body and person as a whole. Spending quite a lot of time travelling and living overseas, she has always had a curiosity for learning as much as she can about different approaches to health and bodywork therapies.
She enjoys meeting and working with people from all walks of life, finding the treatment style that best addresses the individuals unique needs. Her treatments generally include myofascial release, deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and joint mobilisations (when appropriate).
Whether she sees you for a Remedial Massage, addressing a specific case of tension, pain or dysfunction, Relaxation Massage or a combination of the two, she always aims to have her clients walk away feeling more balanced, comfortable and free in their bodies.
