Hyeonji was born and grew up in South Korea but her interest of meeting new people and experiencing different cultures lead her to move and live in Australia.
Her interest of manual therapy started from her passion for surfing and mixed martial art training back in Victoria. Regular manual treatment has helped immensely in recovering from her own sports injuries.
Before she began the journey as a massage therapist, she was a qualified chef and working in very high stress environment which made her prioritise the importance of mental wellbeing after experiencing burnout and that’s when she decided to pursue this magical modality that could change someone’s life by improving mental and physical health.
She finished her diploma of remedial massage degree at Kingscliff TAFE, trained by the dedicated sports therapy educator Jeff Murray and has been practising at Brunswick Heads Osteopathy since 2018.
From her experiences of travelling and exploring our diverse world, she understands people from different backgrounds very well and she approaches everyone with genuine empathy and positive attitude.
She integrates massage with various soft tissue techniques to achieve the best result. These include myofascial release, deep tissue massage, muscle and joint mobilisation, lymphatic drainage, stretching, myofascial cupping and dry needling.
She is also a qualified pregnancy massage therapist who helps women in pregnancy to enjoy safe body treatment in any trimester.
Outside of the clinic she is a mum with two beautiful kids, loves going to beach, teaching kids surfing, free diving in the ocean and enjoying beautiful northern coastal life.
Hyeonji is available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
