GRADUATE STORY - Andrea Cornish

Andrea always aims to provide a high quality of service, paying attention to the smallest detail, so she knows her clients are receiving the best possible care.

What do you enjoy most about massaging?

The benefits of massage are wide and varied and there is no better reward than seeing the smile on my clients' faces after a massage. There really is no greater reward than being able to help people. I love spending time with my family and friends and enjoy each moment to the fullest. I have always been an active person and I enjoy setting new challenges for myself.

"It doesn't matter at what stage in your life you become a therapist.I find massaging very rewarding as it not only relaxes the client but enables me to relax at the same time."

What has been the higlight of your career so far?

There have been a few highlights so far, though two come to mind, both clients who were disabled with their chronic pain.

One was young man who came to see me with severe scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis – malformation of the spine. He was badly teased at school and never did much physical activity because he was in pain all the time. He had seen lots of therapists and nothing had helped. He saw me for Bowen therapy and massage and after 5 treatments he had started playing basketball. It was the highlight of his life.

The other client was a man who was paralysed on the left side due to a stroke and needed a walking frame. He still comes to see me for weekly massages and now he walks through the door unaided.

How was your study experience?

Having a full time job, I chose to study the theory components online, as this gave me the opportunity to study whenever I could fit it in. Not only was I able to meet like-minded people in a professional and supportive atmosphere, the teachers were also very experienced in their field and were able to contribute from their own experience as massage therapists. I now massage for Tennis Australia in Adelaide one day each week and who knows where this will lead.

Whether it was in the evenings or over the weekends. I could complete each subject at my own speed.

TENNIS AUSTRALIA - Hands-on at the elite level

Our partnership with Tennis Australia continues to provide an invaluable glimpse into the world of elite junior tennis. Students were thrilled at the opportunity to massage at the annual December Showdown at Melbourne Park. 

Players and coaches praised the student massage team, commenting on how crucial massage really is to a player’s pre-game preparation and post-match recovery. Students saw firsthand the committment and determination the junior players practice to play their best and achieve success. Being amongst the experienced multidisciplinary team of Tennis Australia therapists was a rewarding experience for all.

Anyone watching modern day tennis will gain an insight into the importance of massage, as players injure or aggravate their bodies and require on court massage treatments. Ten years ago massage was confined to the back corners of the locker room, only to be received by some of the top players. Today, the importance of massage in supporting athletic performance and recovery has now shifted to the centre stage for everyone to see and appreciate.

“I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the sports industry so much. I am really comfortable in the spa environment. However the sports environment is more uplifting and I felt energised and inspired working in this area.”
