About Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage

‘Pain doesn’t just show up in our lives for no reason.

It’s a sign that something in our lives needs to be changed.’ 

~ Mandy Hale

  At Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage our primary focus is on treating your pain, injury and tension and therefore enhancing your health and sporting performance. We are specialists in treating clients from both recreational and professional sporting backgrounds through the use of Remedial / Sports Massage and other sports related therapies.

Are you tired of repeatedly visiting random practitioners where a great massage is hit or miss?

Then when you finally find a great therapist and attempt to book a repeat appointment you discover they have moved on?

At Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage we aim to provide consistently great massage all of the time, regardless of who you see.

The Founder

My name is Melissa Thornton and I am a fully qualified health therapist in a variety of fields. I possess nearly 20 years of experience across a range of modalities within the health industry.

For some time now, my mission has been to create a clinic that would provide a win-win situation for all. I have recognised a need to create an environment where therapists can enjoy each and every working day because they are in a friendly, supportive and professional practice. For clients, a place where client centred treatment is key.


This mission includes:

  • The creation of a clinic where clients can attend during the days and hours that suit their increasingly busy lifestyle. A place where the massage is consistently outstanding and primary complaints are treated and resolved in a timely fashion.
  • Offering therapists a professional working environment where each day they can focus on making a positive and sustainable difference to their client’s lives.
  • The security of knowing that each time a client attends the clinic they will be treated by a qualified professional who leaves them feeling rejuvenated and motivated while being able to claim immediately on their health fund after the session.
