About Liz

Liz looks at most movement as an enquiry process. Her background in sports at a competitive recreational level originally took her down the line of personal training. However, her interest in anatomy and the physiological responses the brain has to constant movement patterns led her to gain a NZ Diploma in Therapeutic Massage in 2006.  

In the past 10 years she gained further experience in Canada after she established Bodytrains, a play on the whole-body fascial and myofascial linkages and patterns, and how the body finds movement and stability. Her clients have included the All Blacks, South African and Irish Rugby teams, Olympic level kayakers, top level triathletes, busy Mums and Dads, to those with serious physical dysfunction and soft tissue injuries. She recently returned to New Zealand and is now practicing in Stratford, Taranaki.

Liz blends a range of myofascial techniques working on both deep and superficial layers to maximise the benefits of massage. She may also include postural assessment and other soft tissue techniques such as Soft Tissue Release and Muscle Energy Techniques within her sessions to offer the best treatment to each individual. She works with firm but gentle hands delivering a massage that is both effective and relaxing.

She is also a Certified Iyengar Level 1 teacher and within her own practice keeps liking to enquire.
