About Travis

My background is in farming, retail, and heavy machinery (Trucks, Excavators, Scrap Metal etc). With having been involved with these types of industries I have seen and understand the stresses that the body goes through, sitting in a truck or machine for extended periods of time. Lifting heavy objects and not always with the best techniques, because you just have to get the job done. This all having a toll on the body with long term effects.

I have a passion for dirt bikes, Martial arts and Hiking. I love to get out early morning and go for a ride in the bush, it has a great way of destressing and grounding you for the week ahead.

I have been in the health and wellness industry for roughly 5 years as Co-Owner of Jack Willows Health and Wellness Centre. I was introducted to the industry by my wife, Lorelle.

My Approach

I endeavour to gain relief and increase comfort for my clients. I approach the treatment with a goal treat individual muscles which are causing the issues however keeping in mind the bigger picture of the over all body and how the muscles interact. I aim to help the client understand possibly why this issue has arisen and how and what they can do to avoid the issues continuing.

 But What About After?

How to Maintain Your Results

Drink Plenty of Water

Most of us these days don’t drink enough water. By increaseing your intake of water after a treatment it will help to flush the body of toxins released from the muscles during the massage.

Stay Active

Keep active, this can be exercise, yoga, pilates, strecthing or many other physical activites. By keeping active it helps the body to stay strong and increases the chance of fighting off disease and viruses. Stretching is great way to keep the body flexiable and maintain range of motion for our joints. By moving through physical activity the Lymph system is keep active which helps to remove waste from our bodies maintaining a homostasis (balance in the body).
