Ishbel CompagnoniRemedial & Pregnancy Massage Therapist
iShbel gained a Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2010, has recently completed training in dry needling (aka musculo-skeletal acupuncture) and is currently studying a BSc Nutrition & Dietetics at the UoW.
After graduating with a BA Psychology in 1995, iShbel progressed through a career in public relations and IT finding that her key strengths lay in people management and communication. As a bodyworker, one of her main strengths is in working with people with sensory processing issues, depression and chronic pain – with what is often described as a “gift” – an ability to make the most vulnerable clients feel safe, relaxed and nurtured with great treatment outcomes. She particularly enjoys working with elderly patients and young people.
“I have been having a regular remedial massage with iSh for over six years and it has always been a wonderful experience. Not only do her treatments relieve my work-related neck and back pain but regular treatments also help me manage my stress and keep my restless leg condition at bay. iSh’s treatments give me a wonderful feeling of relaxation and inner peace.A few years ago, I finally persuaded my elderly mother (age 92) to try a massage with iSh and now she is totally addicted too. It is not only the massage. iSh cares for and treats the ‘whole being’ of her clients and has been a wonderful support to me in times of emotional stress. I thoroughly recommend iSh to anyone who needs a remedial or relaxing massage. I would have one every day if I could!” – Janice McLeod
“I have had remedial massage treatments with Ishbel Compagnoni of Flourish Natural Health Therapies in Helensburgh over the past four years. Not only is iSh an excellent massage therapist, she is very caring and intuitive and listens to her clients.
A treatment with iSh is more than a remedial massage, it is an experience which enriches your body, mind and soul. I would encourage anyone to book a treatment with iSh – not only will she address any physical issues you may have but you will leave with a sense of calm and feel totally relaxed”.- Dawn Simons
Ishbel is available over the Christmas and New year period
