Holly Hicks

Elite and Sports Remedial Massage Therapist


Starting out her career at age 16 as a volunteer sports trainer, Holly has a natural interest in sports medicine and sports injury management.

Holly went on to study her Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2001 while she worked as a massage therapist in a sports physiotherapy practice, deepening her understanding of sports injuries and management and working with athletes and sporting teams.

Understanding the importance of self-care, Holly went on to complete her Stretch Teacher training in 2011.  Her small group and private stretch classes enabled her to share the wonderful benefits of stretching that perfectly compliment massage treatments for longer lasting results.

Over the last almost 20 years, Holly has enjoyed working with a wide variety of people from office workers to weekend warriors and busy parents to elite athletes and sporting teams.

Her area of expertise is in soft tissue work and her ability to hone in on areas of concern using her understanding of structures involved in musculo-skeletal dysfunction or conditions.  She likes to keep things simple and uncomplicated; restoring and maintaining normal and pain free mobility as quickly as possible is what she aims to achieve for each client.

Holly strongly believes the best, sustainable results come from a multi-pronged approach specifically tailored to individual circumstances and lifestyle and will happily link in with existing physiotherapists and other health professionals.

Holly has recently moved to the beautiful Sunshine Coast from South Australia with her husband Joel and two young children, Archer and Isla.  She loves the beach, family picnics, cups of tea in bed, french patisseries and snail mail.  But not spiders.  She hates spiders.
