mess in South Yarra


Hi, it’s Marlon Walker (B.A. Sc), Personal Trainer, Remedial Massage Therapist & Pilates Instructor from Sports Optimum in South Yarra here. This is just a little story on a girl that had hip and neck pain that recently came into my clinic in South Yarra to see me. The girl came in saying that she went to another Remedial Massage Therapist only a day ago and was complaining that the therapist just talked her head off and didn’t fix her pain and she left still in pain. How frustrating, paying good dollars and not getting fixed; because when you’re in pain, all you really want is to have someone, relieve your pain!

When you source someone out to see if they can stop your pain or fix your injuries, you really need to check them out and see if they can do the job properly. You want to do that by checking their website, seeing if they have testimonials, or reviews from other people, stating that they have fixed the problem before.

Before hiring them, it is a good idea to check-out the ratings and reviews of the person online. Make sure they have considerable experience in guiding people in what you’re looking for.

You also need to see if they have done the schooling and got the certificates to prove it. You want to be sure they haven’t just done a short course, and don’t really have the qualifications, because there are lots of people out there that claim to be able treat you, or massage you, or stop your pain, but really, have these people got the knowledge, the credibility, and have they got the testimonials showing that they actually, can do the job?

So, when you are looking for a Remedial Massage Therapist, Pilates Instructor, or a Personal Trainer in South Yarra, do your due diligence to see if they really can do what they say they can do, otherwise you could be wasting your hard-earned money $$$$$$!

Anyway, that is my tip for you! Check people out!
