  • or your gut?

I want to help you!

As the heart of our families, if mumma don’t feel good, ain’t nobody happy!

Growing, feeding, and bringing our babies into this modern world takes a toll on our body. It’s no wonder we struggle to find energy, we forget things when we walk into a room, and we steal moments to cry in the shower! If we don’t properly replenish our body we can struggle with our health even years later.

Mummahood is THE most wonderful thing, but it’s also THE most challenging and demanding role in our lives. Managing these responsibilities as we also strive to pursue various aspirations and desires, can push us to the limits, leaving us teetering between exhaustion and burnout.

I help you discover and address the specific needs of your body, enabling it to generate energy on a cellular level. This allows it to function properly and feel great, so you can get on with creating and enjoying your magnificent life, rather than feel like you are merely existing through your days.

When we feel good on the inside, everything else in life feels a heck of a lot easier!

Lily Cannella

Since we have started working together which has been about 3 months now the level of discomfort I was feeling on a daily basis has significantly decreased. Previously, I would wake up every day bloated and uncomfortable and struggle with stomach issues on a daily basis. We have more work to do together but the change I have noticed thus far has been incredible and I cannot thank you enough. I feel healthy, energized and honestly feel like I am healing from the inside out. My only regret is that I did not seek help sooner and I look forward to the coming months and what we can achieve together.

Carla has helped me so much with getting my health back on track, specifically by using hair mineral testing to identify where my body really needed help. I came to her with issues such as endometriosis, exhaustion, digestion issues, stress, weak immunity, brittle hair plus much more. She identified what were the causes through my hair mineral testing and can now say there has been a huge improvement over the last few months following her analysis and guidance where I now have much more energy and high immunity, my hair is coming back again and I’m much happier and healthier. She is incredibly knowledgeable, caring and has been a huge support to me while I adjust my life and get my health back on track. She has been irreplaceable in my journey of healing. I would recommend her to anyone!

Fran Burgess

I have had plenty of massages in my day but I can honestly say no one has freed up my problem areas as well as Carla. I cannot recommend her enough.

Trinity Rafferty

By far the best massage I have EVER experienced! I have never felt such insane pressure from a therapist, as I did from Carla. Just how I like it and just what my poor body needed. Thank you so much Core Massage!! I’m already spreading the word! Xxx

Jay Hani

I do weight training 6 days per week and it’s extremely difficult to find someone that can give a hard enough massage to get the knots out of my muscles. I always leave CORE feeling like I’ve actually had a massage that is going to help with my recovery and not just spent and hour laying on a bed.
Extremely professional and highly recommended!

Raelene Johnson

Carla gives one of the best remedial massages I have ever had! Strong hands and smooth motions relieved all of my tension and left me feeling light as air. She has a very professional nature, a beautiful and comfortable home salon and a glowing personality. I’m looking forward to watching her business blossom…and will be a repeat customer for sure!!

Went in to see Carla with a lower back that was killing me, walked out an hour later like I was floating on clouds. PS can’t say I felt the same way about my back wax, but I guess I am a bit of a puss, again bloody awesome job Carla. Would highly recommend her services
