About Me and My Practice
At my clinic, Latta Massage Therapy, I assist my clients with relieving a vast range of ailments ranging from headaches/migraines, postural complaints, back/neck aches and pains, stress, general muscle tension, sports injuries, overuse injuries, and chronic pain, to name a few.
A first time client can expect a full assessment and interview to determine the nature of their condition and to devise a personalised treatment plan. Realistic goals are set which is particularly important for those clients with chronic aches and pains. Treatments are carried out in a professional clinical setting. Homecare stretches and advice are given at completion of treatment.
The majority of the week I work from my clinic, and also work from the Academy of Sport at Logan Park.
Practice HoursMonday-Friday: 8.30 am-6 pm.
Generally by appointment only. On the odd occasion, we can accommodate walk ins.
We are accepting new clients, however there may be a waiting list.
