In 2004, Denese opened her massage studio, specializing in the treatment of muscle problems, both bio-mechanical and postural, by combining various techniques to release the muscles.
Denese assesses each of her clients to determine the cause of the problem, so she can treat the problem not the symptom. She treats most areas of painful muscle dysfunction, including the very common areas of neck, shoulder and lower back.
The feet and legs are another common area for pain and without a good foundation for the body through the feet, mechanical problems such as pronation or high arches can eventually affect knees and hips as the muscles compensate. When not treated, these can result in hip and knee replacements.
Osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia are notoriously hard to treat conventionally. Medication is used to relieve pain, but these have side effects. Denese uses therapeutic massage to soothe the muscles and release tension.
Denese uses various techniques at her disposal to allow the body to heal itself.
Denese completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2001 at the Academy of Natural Therapies at the Gold Coast encompassing these treatment therapies:
- Deep tissue
- Therapeutic massage
- Lymphatic massage
- Other complementary massage therapies

It works to relieve chronic pain working with the deep muscle tissue in combination with structural integration or harmony between the individual’s body and the surrounding gravitational field.
The fascia, a web-like connective tissue in the organs, bones, muscles, and blood vessels are manipulated into a position of harmony and balance.
Some treatments are gentle in nature, aiming to restore systems for better function while others are more specific, addressing a particular condition.
It is a healing process that can be used when it is not convenient to treat other body parts. As a non-intrusive technique, it heals indirectly.

- Increased circulation without increased heart load
- Stretching of ligaments and tendons

- Soothing of the nervous system
- Stress reduction – both emotional and physical.
Micro changes in the feet and joints are often due to daily use, work or sports stress and trauma, rather than more obvious events such as sprains and breaks. It’s these tiny changes that initially cause feet discomfort and if left to worsen, cause consequent structural problems.
The effects of foot joint mobilisation can be felt not only locally in the feet and ankles, but also through the legs, pelvis, back and even the head and neck, fixing these problems rather than resorting to surgery.
Foot joint mobilisation applies gentle pressure and manipulation to the various structures of the foot to:
- Re-align the bones within the feet
- Reduce pain
- Reduce swelling
- Increase mobility
- Restore normal gait
- Increase range of motion.
