What their Clients say


Last Updated: 13/May/2022

Thanks to the generosity of our past volunteer clients, below are some comments about what you might experience when massaged by one of our students at one of our Courses

The massage was very relaxing - soft and slow touching with high levels of energy. Temperature and movement was nice. The technique did wonders - felt very ZEN afterwards.

The therapist was excellent - gentle touch and warm hands. Good communication in between changes - professional and respectful of my needs.
Anonymous (OM2 Volunteer), Preston (VIC), Apr/2022

I have never had a massage - my loss!!! The moment the therapist’s hands touched my body I realised what the expression laying of hands and healing hands truly meant. I’d just come off loads of oncology appointments and treatment - nothing was as healing as my massage. I appreciated knowing what was happening and coming next. I thought the therapist communicated this in a clear yet compassionate manner which I appreciated. I also appreciated the calm and discrete manner in which my body temperature issues were dealt with - tetrazole is a bastard! All-in-all, congratulations and may you all keep providing peace and comfort to those of us in distress.

I enjoyed the treatment very much. I felt very well cared for throughout - touch was gentle and caring. The long smooth strokes were very relaxing and I even drifted off to sleep at one stage! Calming, soothing and warm - a beautiful connection.
Chris (OM2 Volunteer), Preston (VIC), Apr/2022

The treatment was very relaxing - almost fell asleep - soothing - very enjoyable.
Beth (OM2 Volunteer Client), Toowoomba (QLD), Feb/2022

Did I enjoy the treatment - yes! The massage was gentle but firm - the pressure applied was appropriate and comfortable - the whole massage experience was very relaxing, soothing and enjoyable.
Geoffrey (OM2 Volunteer Client), Toowoomba (QLD), Feb/2022

Did I enjoy the treatment? Absolutely!!! Loved having my feet and hands massaged
Anonymous (OM2 Volunteer Client), Toowoomba (QLD), Feb/2022

Very relaxing & peaceful - the massage of my head was particularly peaceful & gentle
Graeme (OM2 Volunteer Client), Toowoomba (QLD), Feb/2022

I certainly did enjoy the treatment. My massage was extremely relaxing & soothing. I would recommend this treatment.
Sharon (OM2 Volunteer Client), Toowoomba (QLD), Feb/2022

Julie's treatment was thorough and thoughtful. I lay on the table full of PMR & fluid, and stood up energised & rebalanced. Julie's privacy screen was a FANTASTIC touch! Thank-you!

Loved it! Bec has wonderful hands and lovely smooth movements that were so relaxing - almost fell asleep a few times. Bec was very attentive - always asked me whether I was happy with what she was doing (at the beginning) but then continued her massage without too much talking (which I like more now). Bec is a great massage therapist - very friendly - I hope she does well...I know she will do well! Thanks Bec!
Ros (OM2 Client), Marymount (NSW), Mar/2021

Ian had a very caring and lovely manner and made me feel very comfortable. He was very thorough taking my history and ensured he clarified and sought additional information if required. He has a very soft and gentle technique, his draping was meticulous, and he ensured a hand was in contact with the skin at all times. Thank-you Ian very much.

Jessica was excellent - very empathetic - listened, asked questions, interested in my situation, history treatment. Massage was "hypnotic" - very soothing, rhythmical, peaceful. Well done!
OM2 Client, Marymount (NSW), Oct/2019

I really liked Ana's attention to consistent and correct pressure. I also liked the way every stroke felt thorough, complete, and never rushed. She was excellent at tucking me in at every stage. Ana will make an excellent addition to the oncology massage arena.
OM2 Client, Marymount (NSW), Oct/2019

It was a very relaxing experience. I felt very safe and nurtured - very professional, very grateful, thank-you!
OM2 Client, Marymount (NSW), Oct/2019

Enjoyed this treatment very much! So much of cancer treatment involves pain, discomfort, tiredness, nausea, etc...it's great for the body to feel pleasure and relaxation again.
OM2 Client, Auckland (NZ), Aug/2019

Treatment was very good and relaxing.  Very comfortable.  It felt like butterflies on my skin.  Very calming and soft throughout the treatment. Takes you into another world 
OM2 Client, Bell Motel (VIC), Jul/2019

I found Karen very personable and easy to talk with which made sharing my history with her very easy and ensuring I was able to give her the information she needed to give me a massage suitable for me.  Karen's communications during the massage itself was very clear and I felt very confident with the treatment.  The massage itself was extremely relaxing and Karen's massage technique very soothing.
OM2 Client, Marymount (NSW), Jun/2019

I thought Margaret put me at ease as soon as we shook hands - she made eye contact and smiled. She was very thorough going through my medical history and listened well - very attentive and asked me questions. Margaret was very gentle, calming in her voice and massage. She made me feel comfortable and I was at ease during the massage. I felt warm and covered whilst Margaret massaged me. Overall, I was very satisfied with the experience. I felt very relaxed afterwards.
OM2 Client, Marymount (NSW), Jun/2019

This is the most relaxed I've felt since my news that the cancer is back. The massage was amazing. The pressure was consistent and just right. It wasn't so long that it was creepy (I've felt that before). It wasn't too hard that it hurt (I have fibromyalgia). Her hands didn't feel like they left my body. It was rhythmic. It was just so so nice. Only thing was her hands were cold when she started but once warmed up, it generated a nice warmth especially on my feet at the end. Lovely!
OM2 Client, Auckland (NZ), Jul/2018

Anna managed to make me feel relaxed even in a room with other people. I felt comfortable and informed throughout. I also really liked Anna’s energy.
OM2 Client, Auckland (NZ), Jul/2018

It was very relaxing with smooth and even strokes which was lovely. I think it was good for my oedema. Suannie was very kind and calm which helped me to relax. Thank you very much.
OM2 Client, Dove House (NZ), Jul/2018

Extremely relaxing and comforting. Bernie looked after me very well. I fell asleep which was great because I have been having trouble sleeping. The holds were great.
OM2 Client, Auckland (NZ), Jul/2018

I could feel blood flowing freely - it felt great. I think I was asleep for most of the massage. The whole thing was done professionally and very much to my satisfaction.
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Dec/2017

It was absolutely wonderful. I felt extremely safe and well cared for. The experience was one to treasure unlike a deep tissue massage. My body felt extremely relaxed and I felt that it was responding and letting go. Thank you so much - I feel very lucky to have been involved in this.
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Dec/2017

Very personal - soft, gentle - good summary of medical history. Consistent pressure and flow of movement and stroke - put me to sleep in prone position. Loved the rolling over holding towel down rather than holding towel up - felt more secure and less exposed. Lovely energy - made me feel comfortable.
OM2 Client, Maroochydore (QLD), Dec/2017

Gentle hands and a gentle touch - a beautiful way to spend a winter's day - thank you Gerard and my very best wishes to you - well done!
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Jul/2017

I enjoyed the treatment thoroughly - sensitive and clear - clarity with directions. Felicity is warm and personable. I thoroughly enjoyed the gentle touch and I also enjoyed the firmer touch. Thank you for this opportunity - it was deeply relaxing.
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Jul/2017

...relaxing. I actually slept through bits. Time management was excellent covered all parts of my body as she said before starting without hurrying. Afterwards feeling relaxed but energized!
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), July 2017

...very relaxing but also stimulating at the same time - made me more aware of my body and my sensitivity to touch. Also the importance of touching skin to skin and the subtle stimulation that excites. There was an interesting paradox in that it was a stimulation to relax.
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), July 2017

Naomi has magic hands. The massage was relaxing, thorough (as in all over the body) and therapeutic. I loved it!
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Jul/2017

It was wonderful. My neck and shoulders were very tense and now they feel so relaxed. Julie was very aware of how I was feeling and put an extra blanket on. Her instructions were clear. Absolutely wonderful - thank you!
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Jul/2017

Yes very relaxing but also stimulating at the same time - made me more aware of my body and my sensitivity to touch. Also the importance of touching skin to skin and the subtle stimulation that excites. There was an interesting paradox in that it was a stimulation to relax.
OM2 Client, Gestalt Centre (VIC), Jul/2017

Yes, relaxing. I actually slept through bits. Time management was excellent covered all parts of my body as she said before starting without hurrying. Afterwards feeling relaxed but energized!

Excellent technique and pressure in movements. Thorough linkage of each system and connective tissues.
Priscilla (OM2 Client), QLD, Nov/2014

Felt very good and helped relax my leg. Great feeling after having pain. Pressure of hands great, good flow and touch.
Ingrid, QLD, Nov/2014

I enjoyed it very much. It was very relaxing. I fell asleep a few times. I didn't worry about anything, I had no thoughts, it was just relaxing. Really beautiful and I think it was very good for my legs. Afterwards I felt no pressure at the top of my legs. Thank you!
Marina, QLD, Nov/2014

Elsie is a very lovely therapist and I was very comfortable from the very start. She always asked about my comfort and her hands were very gentle. It was perfect pressure and very soothing and relaxing.
Narelle (Client), QLD, Nov/2014

Enjoyed the massage immensely. Leanne was confident, thorough, very fluid, great pressure, lovely hands. It felt like she was very experienced.
Karen (OM2 Client), QLD, Nov/2014

Very professional, attentive, caring and friendly. Best massage techniques!
Maurice, QLD, Nov/2014

I loved it, it was so relaxing. Richard made me feel very comfortable and I can say he was very gentle. I could have one like this every week.
OM2 Client, VIC, Nov/2014

Wonderful, very relaxing. A lot of care was taken with taking my medical history which was appreciated. I have no experience with massage except deep tissue. This was a great experience.
Sandra, ACT, Nov/2014

It was a real comfort on my neck and scars. It felt good to have the gentle touch. I really appreciate being asked to take part, great experience!
Ellen, VIC, Nov/2014

Terrific experience, I had no idea this could be so relaxing. Leanne was very professional and had superb mannerism. Will definitely have more massages.
OM2 Client, QLD, Nov/2014

Enjoyed it very much. Liz was skilled and gentle. I felt very safe and well cared for. She explained what she was going to do and it felt great! Thank you for this opportunity.
OM2 Client, VIC, Aug/2014

I found it relaxing and calming. The slow rhythmic movements were very calming and gave a sense of peace. The relaxation I felt was deep and soothing, especially the massage of the area where I had the Surgery. Being in a place that had so much happen to it, it felt very healing and therapeutic and soothing to the soul.
OM2 Client, VIC, Aug/2014

Massage was extremely helpful in loosening tight tissue. I now acknowledge I need much more work to loosen post-surgery adhesions. The whole experience was extremely beneficial physically/mentally. Corrine did a super job!!  Many Thanks.
OM2 Client, VIC, Aug/2014

I really enjoyed the treatment, felt relaxed and pressure was fantastic. I would recommend Laine for a massage, great flow!
OM2 Client, QLD, Jun/2014

My treatment was very professional. The history taken was very thorough with solid knowledge of medical processes involved, past and present. Excellent and appropriate pressure throughout as well as attention to comfort level. Well Done!
Priscilla, QLD, Jun/2014

Treatment was very therapeutic, relaxing and my body seemed to respond to the soothing nature of massage. I felt very comfortable and at ease with the therapist. I even felt in a state of meditation so I must have been relaxed. My left knee responded well to touch. Lovely treatment.
OM2 Client, QLD, Jun/2014

Audrey was wonderful. The massage was very free flowing and I felt the releases. My right side feels not as tight as usual. Audrey hit all the right spots. Thank you.
Norelle, QLD, May/2014

Brilliant! The first thing I noticed was how smooth and soft Audrey’s hands felt. The movements/strokes were seamless and induced a sense of relaxation. Transition to different areas of the body flowed. The pressure was always even. It was a blissful experience.
Jacqui, QLD, May/2014

Incredible, relaxing, soothing and thorough - hadn't let anyone touch scar area and this was a very new experience. Working on stomach area was also something I hadn't experienced before - felt so understood.
Claire, NSW, May/2014

It was lovely. Very relaxing. The only complaint - it was so nice, I relaxed to the point of falling asleep. It was excellent.
OM2 Client, NSW, May/2014

Warm hands, very soothing. Lyn had consistent pressure throughout which was very comfortable and relaxing. I would feel quite confident with Lyn doing my treatment.
Alison, QLD, May/2014
