When White Stone Mas­sage owner Deia Abi­tante was look­ing for a ca­reer where she could ‘lend a hand’ and help peo­ple out, she found her call­ing came quite lit­er­ally – in mas­sage, health­care and Reiki. White Stone Mas­sage of­fers an im­pres­sive list of treat­ments – ev­ery­thing from dry needling and In­dian head mas­sages to lym­phatic drainage (which is a lot more re­lax­ing than it sounds!).

“We ac­tu­ally of­fer 15 dif­fer­ent types of mas­sages and treat­ments,” Deia says. “Re­me­dial mas­sage is the most com­mon, but we also spe­cialise in preg­nancy and post-natal mas­sage – we even have ta­bles where the mum-to-be is able to lie face down, which makes such a dif­fer­ence.”

Deia says the most com­mon rea­sons peo­ple come in for re­me­dial mas­sage are sore­ness from daily ac­tiv­i­ties such as work, train­ing or just stress, that could be block­ing them from per­form­ing to their full po­ten­tial.

"We also get many clients who have suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries in the past and mas­sage treat­ments help them live a pain-free life," she says. But Deia says that some­times, the best rea­son to get a mas­sage isn’t even phys­i­cal.

"It's known that reg­u­lar mas­sages pro­vide re­lax­ation and calm to the hu­man body," Deia says. “Now imag­ine giv­ing that one hour per week or even ev­ery two weeks to your body - to re­lax com­pletely? You re­duce stress and in­crease qual­ity of life. Mas­sage works on the mus­cles where there is a build up of stress, mak­ing us able to im­prove our pro­duc­tiv­ity to its op­ti­mal level and al­low­ing for a hap­pier life.”

And who bet­ter to help you achieve said ‘op­ti­mal pro­duc­tiv­ity’ than the heal­ing hands of a White Stone masseuse? The mas­sage ther­a­pists are all fully qual­i­fied in sev­eral dif­fer­ent ar­eas, be­yond the stan­dard tech­niques. Deia her­self isn’t just a re­me­dial ther­a­pist, but is also qual­i­fied in clin­i­cal aro­mather­apy and Reiki Mas­ter who has six years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the health­care in­dus­try un­der her belt.

“Ever since I fin­ished my first mas­sage course and started work­ing in a clinic in Manly, New South Wales, help­ing and look­ing af­ter peo­ple has been my pas­sion,” Deia says. “The best feel­ing is when you can see the re­sults in your clients and know that your job re­ally makes a dif­fer­ence in some­one’s life – that is in­deed the best pay­ment I could ever get from a client.

“You re­ally must ex­pe­ri­ence a good mas­sage at least once in your life,” Deia says. “It’s truly holis­tic – you feel it, not just in your body, but your mind as well.”
