I have been a client of Robyn's for twelve months and I see her once a month. Six years ago I was in a car accident and suffered a neck injury. Massage is the only thing that relieves the pain in my neck. I work in an office so I suffer a lot of neck and shoulder muscle tension, stress and headaches. Robyn is professional, friendly and has an excellent technique. I always leave feeling completely relaxed. Robyn's personal manner is calm, knowledgeable and intuitive. There is a lot to be said for the benefits of long term massage therapy and I highly recommend Robyn.
Robyn has provided invaluable therapy as part of my continuing recovery from breast cancer. I have experienced holistic benefits from her treatment. The treatment relaxed me physically and provided a sense of calm during the most stressful time of my life. Not only did the treatment relieve substantial aches and pains in my body, I was calmed knowing that Robyn knew exactly the areas and pressures to avoid while I under went chemotherapy and radiotherapy. What might have been the most important benefit was Robyn relaxed my mind. I was able "to be me". I was able to be emotional for 1 hour of the day as I subliminally hid my feelings from my fully supportive family to protect them from my emotional state. I am now officially "cancer free" but such has been the importance of Robyn's treatments that I shall continue to see her as I complete my recovery.
I had tongue cancer in 2004 and was treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The large amounts of radiation damaged my throat and I am unable to swallow. Since then I have had a peg feeding tube. I lost 22kgs in weight and I have never regained my energy fully. In 2011 I had uterine cancer. I had surgery but was unable to endure the planned radiotherapy as the side effects were too severe. At my first appointment Robyn took a thorough medical history so she knew how best to treat me. Her oncology massage is a gentle form of massage and relieves pain and tension in my body. My shoulders are always very sore and the massage helps with joint mobility and easing pain and stiffness. The massage totally relaxes me. The massage room is a haven to me and the oncology massage have made a huge difference to my wellbeing. I can't thank Robyn enough for the relief she provides me

For the past 7 years I have been training twice a day, 6 days a week using both resistance training and high intensity cardio work. This takes a heavy toll on my joints and muscles. Through Robyn's trigger point therapy and massage treatments I manage to keep my body flexible and ready to meet the demands that this amount and type of exercise makes on my body.Massage treatments have also helped relieve the pain I experience from arthritis in my knees. In my view every weight loss program, fitness plan or pain management treatment should include an experienced and supportive team of professionals. Robyn Parkes has been an important part of my support team.

I attended 3 Meditation Workshops with Robyn. The topics were on Positive outlook, Self-image and Deep relaxation. I appreciated that all information was delivered from a scientific perspective with details on the benefits of meditation and stress management techniques. Each workshop focused on a different aspect of meditation with handouts for later reference. I loved the guided meditation at the end of each workshop, which was a great opportunity to put theory into practice. I especially loved the deep relaxation guided meditation. I thought the structure of these workshops provided a well rounded experience to build on and incorporate meditation into everyday life. It has assisted and benefited me in many ways.

I attended Robyn's Meditation Therapy Classes because I was looking to find why meditation wasn't quite working for me. I didn't quite get it. Through her interesting, informative and easy to understand instruction I have acquired practical knowledge and a meditation regime that helps me on a daily basis. I highly recommend Robyn's classes.
