Relief of Chronic Back Pain

Scott D   10 February 2018

I have had ongoing discomfort for many years, and came to for relief of [chronic back pain]  Stef provided deep tissue massage and acupressure for all of my back and neck.

Stef is highly professional and enthusiastic about his profession and tailored his service specifically to my needs and was engaging to talk to during the sessions. The acupressure gave me the relief I was looking for.

I would highly recommend Stef if you are experiencing pain and discomfort!


Emotional Healing – Amazing

Katie Court

“2012 was a year of extreme change for me and I spent most of the time struggling to balance my inner and outer worlds.  This came to a head for me one day. The resulting behaviour was so foreign and puzzling that I felt that I just had to get help.

This is when I contacted Stef and we started working together.   My first appointment was for massage and this was very nurturing which is what I needed at the time.

The energy was moving but I still felt quite blocked.  She then did a healing session and this was an amazing experience that really helped my energy flow more smoothly.

The day after I was treated I literally dragged myself around all day and could hardly do anything I felt so wiped out.  The next day was a bit better and the day after, better again.  On the third day after my session I felt like a new person!

I suddenly felt like everything was back in order instead of feeling like a square peg in a round hole.  I felt reconnected and able to move forward with confidence rather than stumbling through my day.

I am so grateful to Stef as she gives so much during her sessions.  She uses her skills, knowledge and energy to really help things move no matter what type of treatment she is doing.  I needed to follow a process to get back on track and Stef has led me through that process to a better me!!”

Life is a ‘heck of a lot more enjoyable’

Dona Clark

“I first came to Right For Life Massage in Feb 2005, when I was experiencing daily headaches and severe stiffness as a result of my neck surgery where itfeet-out-window was plated and ‘fused’. Sciatica too was an ongoing problem and it was really limiting my enjoyment of the outdoors.

I was in pain almost all day, every day.

I found Stef and began massage sessions once a week for about 5 weeks. My headaches which were a part of daily life, seemed to disappear for longer and longer periods.
From there things improved expodentially. In a while I had almost full neck movement back and those debilitating headaches were reduced to little or none for weeks on end! The sciatica too which was such a problem, eased greatly and these days makes only very brief appearances.

I still go to Stef every 6-8 weeks for an all-over iron out, but feel that life is a heck of a lot more enjoyable.”

Athlete lower back pain – gone!

Dee Lack

Dee originally came to Stef for severe lower back pain which showed up as almost entire immobility. It ached all the time and in her last sporting event she started having tingles in both feet.

In a stressful job as a high ranking police officer, Dee felt she had to keep herself in top and in peak condition.

After just ONE One hour treatment with Stef, Dee came back a week later positively raving about that her lower back ache (which had plagued her for years) had completely disappeared! After just one treatment! She was stoked!

Stef added to her first success with an additional Massage and Acupressure treatment and also gave some suggested stretches and specialised techniques to follow as home-care. Now all the back restriction and pain is gone and there is no tingles anyway.

Dee went on the participate in the 2013 Tauranga Half Ironman and this is what she wrote:
Hi Stef,
Some feedback for you.
Had an awesome race and ‘Oh My God’, No back problems for the first time in 5 years! So the wonderful stretching and massages have helped…thank you!
I also placed 3rd in my age and 13th overall out of 151 age groupers. Had an amazing swim and bike and managed to hold a pace through the run.
I wasn’t going out there to place just have a good bike and swim and have no back pain, so exceeded what I set out to do!
Thanks again
See ya soon, Dee.

Finally Some Relief

Emma Thomas

arm-massageI had been going to a physio for nearly 2 years with little result for my shoulder pain.

I sought a cordisone injection and still not much change.  Then I found Right for Life Massage, and it has literally changed my life around.  I received more benefit out of 3 massage sessions with stretching advice, than I did from 18 months at a physio.

I have since had weekly, then monthly massages and have been suggested different stretching exercises as I’ve gone along, to help me gain more mobility.  I recommend these guys to anyone wanting more than just your usual massage
