After embarking upon a new fitness regime a friend suggested I consider having regular massages to assist with muscle recovery. I took this advice and now three years since my initial visit to Jackie’s Massage Therapy I enjoy a deep tissue sports massage several times a month. I have found all of Jackie’s team to be friendly, professional and provide a consistent massage of the highest standards. Most importantly, my regular massage has greatly improved my flexibility, reduced stress, reduced risk of sports injury and assists my body to recover from the large volumes of training which I now undertake.
As an elite athlete I have my fair share of massages and get to experience a large number of masseuse’s !!! So the fact that I have been going to Jackie for over 7 years is testimony in itself. She is a consummate professional, always reliable and always smiling. Specifically though she understands the physiology behind the various muscles, she responds to feedback, can work specifically on and around injuries as necessary, is strong enough to well and truly work through any major tightness given the large volume of weights and power work required for bobsleigh, and covers all the areas of the body well. I can’t recommend Jackie highly enough.
I have been going to Jackie’s sport massage regularly for the last 3 years. I am keen marathon runner and typically run 100km a week when preparing for a marathon. When I design my marathon program, I make sure I’ve included regular massages from Jackie’s. I believe the deep tissue massage that I get regularly at Jackie’s assists with my recovery and also prevents injury. I can highly recommend all the girls that work in her clinic.
As a personal trainer, my daily schedule is very physically demanding. I need to maintain a high level of strength, fitness, and endurance, and am continuously pushing my body to its limit and beyond, over and over again. With these physical demands comes obvious wear and tear, as well as the occasional injury. Thankfully I have Jackie and her team of smiling assassins!! I have had many massages in my life, and gone through many massage therapists but by far the massages I get at Jackies are the most incredible massages I have ever experienced. Their technique is superior to any other that I have experienced, and the results I have gotten have been amazing. Aches and pains that I have been carrying around for years have gone allowing me to now do things that were previously not possible. I won’t go anywhere else.
My weekly training program, which includes weight training sessions in the gym, and a substantial amount of time on the water, would not be possible without the ‘maintenance’ that your team provide. I have learnt over many years, often through injury, that you must match the maintenance with the output if you want to be successful in achieving your sporting goals. There is nothing more frustrating than being unable to train due to injury and for this reason I see my weekly massage visits as an integral part of my training program and what’s more a very enjoyable and friendly experience. Your unwavering commitment to me as an athlete is very much appreciated and with the competition program I have in the months ahead I know that I am in good hands, literally! Thanks once again.
I’ve been using Jackies Sports Massage for the past 10 months and I can’t recommend them highly enough. I’m a full time professional contemporary dancer with the Sydney Dance Company and I definitely NEED the releasing benefits of the deep tissue massages that I receive with every treatment I have at Jackies. I’ve never left there without feeling completely rejuvenated and ready to use my body to its extremes again. Prue Brennan is usually the therapist I use at Jackies and she is a highly skilled masseuse however I know that all the massage therapists there are great. Cheers!!
I have been a client of Jackie Schmidt for some four years now. I remember when she started her business in a single room on level three of the building at 185 Elizabeth Street. She now occupies a large suite with several rooms and has a vibrant, thriving business. Jackie is quite simply the best massage therapist I have ever been too. I never go anywhere else unless of course I am interstate or overseas (for some unfathomable reason she refuses to travel with me everywhere I go…!). As a person she is smart, friendly and generous. Professionally she is a perfectionist and makes sure that the quality of the service that her business provides to clients is impeccable. In terms of the massage she provides she is strong and highly skilled. I would recommend her to anyone.
I have been going for regular massage (every fortnight) at Jackies Sports Massage for a year now. Prior to finding Jackies, I have tried many massages, but none have had as lasting and profound effect on my well-being. Like everyone I first complained of stress in my shoulders and back, however unlike the previous massages, this stress was dispensed with rapidly in about 4 sessions and then the amazing deeper release work began. I had no idea just how beneficial regular massage can be. Systematically all the muscles are tackled and deep release work undertaken. Asymmetry’s, niggling pains, scars, injuries and knots I didn’t even know I had (because I had them so long) have all been released, leaving me relaxed and flexible. The team are so well trained, they inform me what parts they are working on, and suggest exercises to stretch or strengthen offending parts. I find myself more knowledgeable about and aware of my own body, plus am more active and sleep much better. I have no hesitation in recommending Jackies Sports Massage for those who want to feel a difference.
As mentioned HICAPS are available in our clinic so you can swipe your health care card and the rebate will be paid to you on the spot.
This makes it very cheap and convenient for all our clients to have their regular massages at Jackie’s Sports Massage Therapy.
