Meet Viv the owner of Revival Massage Therapy. Viv qualified as a therapist in 2008, and now holds a certificate in relaxation massage and a diploma in therapeutic massage. It’s fair to say Viv loves her job and the challenges that come with it. Every client is different and brings with them a new set of challenges, which basically means the job never gets boring!

Viv’s interests lie in managing acute & chronic pain as well as well as assisting with maintenance and general wellness massage. Viv also loves assisting active people reach their sports goals with regular sports massage.

When asked what she enjoys the most, Viv replied;

“I enjoy spending time with my clients and hearing about their pain, their stress and how they spend their time, and then working with their bodies & educating them to correct imbalances in their muscles, and relieve tension and trigger points that have been causing a problem.

To see a client come back the following week in considerably less pain than the week before is so great, and when that client has been coming for a while and they are able to make their sessions monthly or 6 weekly without living their life in pain, its all worth it.”

Viv’s kept pretty busy these days, running around after her young son Luca, spending time with her partner Simon, studying to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner and of course managing a successful massage therapy practice with 2 clinics.

But here are some things you might not know about Viv…

Tell us what you get up to on the weekend…
I spend my days off trying to find a balance between going to the gym, spending time with my family, and socialising with my friends. I work  in the clinic on a Saturday &  my ideal way to spend a Sunday would be for someone else to get Luca out of bed and whisk him away so I can have a sleep in, then brunch at a local café with Luca and Simon. Followed by a walk on the beach and then to meet up with some friends for a late afternoon drink in the sun.

Rea is a Swiss registered Massage therapist and also has training and experience as a Beauty therapist, Fitness trainer and Nutritionist. She has started her journey into wellness at a very young age, due to sport injuries during competitive horse riding and ice-skating. She ended up becoming a fitness instructor and developed her career in massage therapy and beauty treatments to enhance the physical wellbeing of her clients. She ran a wellness centre inside a gym in Geneva, Switzerland for 10 years. Her passion for nature brought her to New Zealand, where she is currently completing her studies in holistic nutrition.

Rea believes that in order to thrive in life, one must be balanced physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and be connected with nature. While Rea is trained in many different massage types she loves doing relaxing, whole body massages. She believes that stress is at the root cause of every disease and that putting the body in a parasympathetic state (relaxed state) initiates the self-healing mechanism that finally leads to recovery and ultimate wellbeing. She also likes to incorporate deep tissue and neuromuscular techniques to her massages in order to release specific muscular tensions and trigger points. Rea believes that massage therapy can be the best antidote for pain and trauma, give relief and immediate comfort whenever needed.
