Zare Edwards – Remedial Massage & Counselling
Dip. H.Sci/RM, B Psych (Hons)
Zare has many years experience as a fully accredited remedial therapist.
A good massage beneficially impacts all the body systems, reducing stress, enhancing wellbeing, and alleviating pain and disorder. Treatments are always individually tailored and incorporate relaxation and remedial techniques. Myofascial cupping is often included. This is a modality that works gently but deeply, effectively breaking down adhesions between the skin, muscle and fascia (connective tissue). This results in nerve relief, increased circulation, lymphatic and elimination system support, and deeper muscular relaxation and recovery. Treatments are firm but sensitive. All health fund rebates apply.
Counselling sessions are confidential, sensitive, and informed. Understanding more about the psychology of how we think and behave has been a life-long passion. I’ve been continually training in various therapy approaches for the last couple of decades. My latest interests have been working with addictions, and with the impact of trauma. Sessions draw from a number of different approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI).
Sessions with Zare are very popular, booking well in advance is recommended. Contact Tweed Coast Chiropractic to make an appointment.
