With the current status of COVID-19 in New Zealand, we have been recommended by Massage New Zealand (MNZ) to follow the health professionals guidelines from the ministry of health:
We have increased our cleaning, hand washing, personal and room sanitizing procedures at the UC Rec Centre before and after clients.
If you are however concerned please do what is best for your own health.
Massage therapists will be updated by MNZ as events unfold and we will inform you when things may change. Otherwise we are continuing to offer a great service and we thank you for your support.
Tina George PHMT owner
My name is Anna Morgan and last year I completed my Bachelor of Health Studies specialising in Neuromuscular Therapy. Within this I achieved Diplomas in Clinical and Sports and Therapeutic Massage, and am also a Registered Therapist with Massage New Zealand.
My philosophy includes an emphasis on acknowledging and treating the physical, emotional and biochemical aspects and stresses associated to each client, by using numerous techniques learnt at the New Zealand College of Massage in Auckland.
My particular passion within massage therapy involves assisting with chronic pain, and associated conditions including headaches/migraines. Another passion includes treating sport related conditions, a reason why I entered into massage therapy as a career.
If you would like to book a session with me at the University of Canterbury Recreation Centre, follow this link:
Or you can book on the tablet HUB at the Rec Centre
Hours: Wednesday/Thursday 2-9pm, Friday 9-5pm.
– Sports Massage (pre and post event)
Port Hills Massage therapy has set up in the Rec Centre to offer staff and students discounted service to help support health and wellness on campus.
Tina George is a part time staff member at the Rec Centre and has been a therapist for 13 years. Tina’s idea to bring massage therapy to UC campus is an extension of her home and clinic practice and hopes to provide a service with other therapists in the area.
Our aim is to give UC people and the wider community a place to come not just for great massage therapy but to be able to use the Rec Centre for fitness, fun and general improvement of health. You attend a fun class or do a workout then have a massage and a hot shower before you head home, or start your day.
Regular therapy monthly or quarterly can help with reducing stress, alleviate chronic muscular discomfort (neck, shoulders, lower back) from sitting at desks for hours on end and is one way we can introduce balance back into our bodies and our busy lives.
We have provided an easy booking system to book online through the rec centre web page or at the tablet hub in the hallway.
