About Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage

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.

“Brilliant massage. The therapists are highly experienced and really know what they're doing.”
“Really helpful with identifying the cause of my pain as opposed to just temporary fixes.”
“I have had a remedial massage by Melissa which was superb - her care and professionalism are first class she not only spent time with me at my initial consult but followed with emails and follow ups to assist me at home with stretches etc brilliant customer service. I have returned and had a deep tissue massage by Cynthia who was also excellent. I would highly recommend Coogee Sports and Remedial Massage in every instance service, quality of care, location and clean and well presented premises.”
Larissa, South Coogee
“I had a great first experience with Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage. They were able to get me in on the weekend with only 2 hours’ notice. I came in with a lot of pain in my neck and upper back and walked out nearly 100% better. Jimmy took the time to review my health history and to check out my posture, skeletal alignment, and range of motion before he worked on my problem area. He was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I'll definitely be going back to Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage.”
Hannah, Coogee
"My remedial massage with Melissa was extremely thorough, incorporating pressure points into the massage. Melissa also focused on problem areas and gave me a verbal summary of where she considered I could do with some additional treatment. Thanks!!"
Melissa, Randwick
“I have had a fantastic experience with Melissa at Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage. She has treated me with massage and acupuncture, both of which have had excellent results. Melissa really cares about her clients, which shows as she doesn't forget about you when you walk out the door. She frequently checks in to see how I am progressing after my visits and to ensure that my treatments are working. I highly recommend visiting the team at Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage.”
Simone, Coogee
I am posting to tell you how great Coogee Sports & Remedial Massage is! I have been having much-needed massages which were customised appropriately to suit my growing pregnant tummy. Melissa has been extremely helpful, going out of her way to make me feel welcome in the new space, advising me as to a suitable masseuse and generally checking in to see how I was going after I had my daughter. I would highly recommend this service and urge you to check it out! I must now treat myself to a post-natal massage...
This place is brilliant, I don't normally leave online reviews in anything but I was compelled. I pulled my lat muscle and was in a lot of pain and Jimmy sorted it all out. Brilliant therapist, will definitely be going back.
