As a professional athlete I am constantly pushing my body's limits. In the past this has often resulted in injury and illness which disrupts my training and racing and compromises my performance. Since seeing Marlene over the past couple of years I have had very few injury and illness set backs which I associate very directly with her influence on my recovery and regeneration of damaged muscles and fatigue. I have been to a number of massage therapists and Marlene is very clearly the best I have experienced. My needs often change and so too does her approach. She is a problem solver and my success as an athlete has gone up in the time I have been using Marlene's massage therapy. That is no coincidence at all. I cannot recommend Marlene enough to those who like me, ask so much of their body and therefore need to give back to it.

Getting sick of reoccurring headaches I went online to find a massage therapist. Marlene’s profile struck a chord with me; she had so much experience and a wealth of knowledge.

I always enjoyed my sessions with Marlene as she has a wonderful manner and provides a very comfortable and reassuring environment.

I highly recommend Marlene as not only did her massage technique alleviate my issues but she would always discuss what was happening to my body and the things I could do at work and home to help.

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial.

I had regular treatment with Marlene, at least once a month from 2010 until she left for Wanaka in 2014.

I sought treatment with Marlene for problems with my hips, back, shoulders and neck. Marlene set to work and quickly managed to untie all the knots, using massage and trigger point therapy. I am inclined to build up tension in these areas and each month Marlene helped me to rebalance and move freely again.

I miss her skills, her professionalism, her insights into life in general and our friendly discussions. I have no hesitation in recommending Marlene and wish her all the best for her new practice in Wanaka.

A few years ago i had a sports injury which collapsed a disk in my neck. This left me in a lot of pain, regular headaches and nerve pain etc etc.
Marlene worked on my neck every week to keep my pain levels under control and maintain some level of flexibility until i was able to have a spinal fusion in March 2013.
Post surgery we switched to rehab and therapeutic massage to improve my flexibility which allowed me to return to work and light exercise.
Thank you very much Marlene for all your assistance before and after my surgery, all the best for your new business in beautful Wanaka

I started seeing Marlene after experiencing severe neck pain associated with long trips on the road. Marlene was very quick to identify the problem areas and in consultation with me (around pressure and release), work these out as well as advising how I might avoid these issues from reoccurring in the future. Since my treatment by Marlene I not only addressed the and avoided the neck pain but I was able to resume my training. I continued to see Marlene for the ache and pains associated with heavy training, and again I found that Marlene was always quick to identify the problem areas and offer up strategies for preventing these. I would recommend Marlene to anyone seeking a skilled massage therapist who takes the time to listen and work with you to resolve your alignments. Thanks Marlene.

Marlene worked at my business Russley Sports Massage in Christchurch for 5 years. Over that time she built up her own client base of very loyal and satisfied clients. She worked with people from all walks of life, from high performing athletes to teenagers to the elderly.

I love Marlene's massage technique. She really works with the body and feels and thinks about how it responds to what she is doing. Her knowledge of anatomy and bio-mechanics of the body is exquisite and her years of experience show when she is working with a tricky problem.

I can't recommend Marlene highly enough. We wish you all the best in Wanaka but would have you back in Christchurch in a heart beat :)

I have had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 30 years, resulting in numerous joint replacements. . So, when I was looking for a massage therapist I wanted to be careful to find somebody who was qualified and had a comprehensive knowledge about the body’s ligaments, tendons, joints, etc. .
Marlene took a few minutes to establish which areas were causing me the most discomfort.
As Marlene massaged, I guided her to pressure points that were causing me the most pain. Usually, it was my shoulders and neck areas with associated headaches.
I choose to have an hour long massage once a fortnight and I found that my pain levels and headaches were reduced considerably providing me with a better quality of life. Cost was important too and Marlene’s fees were very competitive. – Clare Richards. Christchurch.

I first went to see Marlene in Christchurch 3 years ago as I had a neck and back problem due to long working hours at a computer. Since then I have had massages regularly with Marlene (every 3-4 weeks) and found this really helpful. Each time I felt really relaxed afterwards and the symptoms eased a lot. The trigger point technique worked really well for me. Marlene is friendly and tailored each session. I have recommended Marlene to my husband Mike and colleague. Mike also highly recommends Marlene and said that the massages helped a lot with sore neck and shoulders from IT work.

Thank you Marlene for your great service! I was 2012 in Christchurch preparing for the Olympic Games in London. I had back pain and Marlene was the best address to go to. The pleasant ambiente in the massage practise made feel me comfortable and I enjoyed the massage. I would always come back and visit her even in Wanaka ;) All the best!

I have been seeing Marlene on a regular basis for quite some time now. I hold a lot of stress in my upper body causing tension and pain. I also experience headaches as well as stiffness in my neck. Marlene has a wonderful technique where she works from the trigger point for the problem areas. She is very professional and caring with a beautiful personality.
I'm missing you already Marlene, but look forward to catching up with you sometime in Wanaka.
