We are so excited to have a new therapist joining our Black Rock team from next week. Get to know more about Paige Bux and her treatment style here.
What is your professional background?
After school I went into the corporate world working in a few different roles within the insurance industry for around 17 years. But I’d always been interested in massage therapy even as a teenager.
So, in 2018 I decided to pursue my passion in natural health and wellbeing and I began my studies in massage therapy. I completed my Diploma in Remedial Massage at the Australian College of Fitness and Bodywork.
In my career so far, I’ve worked with the Melbourne Marathon and done mobile massage work with corporate clients, school teachers, early learning centres and nurses. For the past 10 months I’ve been working in a massage clinic on the Mornington Peninsula.
What do you love about your work?
What I really love is seeing how clients progress from when I first saw them. Some clients come in with pain they have had for a long time feeling stressed and frustrated, so it’s nice to see how much lighter and happier they look and feel after.
I also love the learning aspect of the profession and enjoy learning new skills which can help clients progress even more.
What do your treatments entail?
I’ll go through a thorough assessment and check range of movement and any special tests needed.
Then once treatment begins, I’ll do some deeper techniques which may include trigger-point release, myofascial release and muscle energy techniques (which is a stretching technique).
I may also include dry needling and cupping, along with some home exercises. I like to incorporate some nicer soothing strokes at times so that the treatment can also be relaxing.
What is your speciality?
I’m going to say headaches and neck pain but not limited to that.
What are you likely to discuss during a treatment?
Anything really, once we get to know each other the conversations flow. I like to create an easy-going environment. Always up for a chat or not, it just depends on the client and how they feel on the day.
Hobbies outside of work:
I love practicing yoga, running, HIIT, meditation, reiki, and I love the beach.
Ready to book?
