I am currently taking a break from providing Mobile Massage to Surfers Paradise – to focus on my Gold Coast Seated Massage business.
If you could benefit from having Seated Massage at your Conference, Trade Show, or Exhibition,
Or want to reward your staff with regular or one-off workplace massage,
Or need a fun activity for your Charity Day, Open Day, Sports Day, Golf Day, or Special Business promotion… I can sort you out.
I can provide 1 therapist for two hours, or a team of therapists for a week.

Surfers Paradise is not only Australia’s favourite holiday destination, it is home to many people who enjoy unit-living overlooking one of the world’s most famous beaches. Under continual evolution, the Surfers Paradise skyline continues to blossom.
Although there is a few ‘day-spa’s’ in the precinct, why not relax and indulge in the conform and privacy of your own home or holiday unit – with a Surfers Paradise Massage at a fraction of the cost.
I am an experienced spa therapist, now offering mobile remedial and relaxation massage treatments privately.
Whether you want to relax and unwind on your vacation with the luxurious Hawaiian Kahuna (also called a Lomi Lomi Massage), a traditional Swedish Massage, or you prefer harder Deep Tissue Massages or Remedial Treatments to fix niggling injuries, I can discuss your individual needs and deliver a treatment that is perfect for you.
All of my massages are charged at the same price – so you will never hear me say, “I can massage harder – but it will cost you more.” (It Happens!) I give 100% focus and effort every time my hands are on a body.
If you would like a couples massage, (Both massaged at the same time – instead of one after the other) I can organise additional therapists to accommodate this.
So for both locals or visitors wanting an amazing massage experience, I invite you to make contact.

The History of Surfers Paradise…
The first European to settle near the present day Cavil Avenue was a farmer named James Beattie. He started with an 80 acre lot on the Nerang River… but the venture was unsuccessful.
He sold it in 1877 to Johan Meyer, a German immigrant, who tried for a sugar farm and mill. The sandy soil did him no favours and within 10 years auctioned the farm and started a ferry service. This made him very thirsty, so he built the Main Beach hotel. In 1889, this hotel also became the areas first post office. Mayer died in 1901 and the hotel ran into ruin.
The first record of the name “Surfers Paradise” was in 1917, when a land auction was held to sell subdivided blocks. The promotion was called ‘Surfers’ Paradise Estate’, but the auction failed because access to the area was still very difficult. It was the first recorded reference, but rumour suggests it was already part of the local vernacular. (The title of the “Gold Coast” also had similar origins.)
In 1925, Jubilee Bridge was built to cross the Nerang River so people were no longer reliant on the ferry service. This was the start of the rapid expansion on the coast. Speculators began buying up land, and hotels were opened to accommodate tourists and those new to the area.
Jim Cavil, a Brisbane hotelier opened Surfers Paradise Hotel in 1925, and became the regions first real landmark. Cavil pushed to have the original name of Elston officially changed to the more marketable Surfers’ Paradise and in 1933 the town acquired its present name.
The 1950s and 1960s saw booming development in this area and the first of the tall apartment buildings were constructed in the years that followed.
There has been such continual development on the Gold Coast, little remains of the early vegetation or natural features of the area. The lowland water ways of the Nerang River have been crafted in canal and water ways, linked by numerous bridges.
Currently home to the tallest building in the Southern hemisphere, and taller building currently under construction, Surfers Paradise has ensured its place in Australia’s image.
