Ali is a fully qualified Remedial Massage Therapist with over 6 years of clinical massage experience and has been with WA Sports Massage since 2016.
She has worked intimately with an extensive range of athletes in different fields (Boxing, Gymnastics, Swimming, Football, Soccer, Crossfit, Olympic Weightlifting) since starting here in 2016 and has worked with sports teams, having been appointed as Sports Massage Therapist for the silver-medal winning U-22 Western Australia Mixed Team for Ultimate Frisbee in 2018.
She is a practitioner of the Ido Portal Movement method, which allows her to have a non-linear view on how to help clients get stronger and/or manage existing injuries.
It’s not just about reliance on massage, not just about doing one prescribed exercise. It’s more about using proven manual therapy techniques, coupled with diligent self-care work and movement, to correct your imbalances and injuries.
Ali’s question to you will always be “What are your goals today?” She believes that each client is unique and should not be provided with a standard massage routine.
She will work with you to help improve your physical performance and stay pain-free.

Chris is a certified Remedial Massage Therapist who graduated from the Australian Institute of Fitness and has been with WA Sports Massage since 2017.
He is a former competitive bodybuilder and motocross racer with lots of personal experience in the fitness world.
He grew up racing motocross in France from age 10 to 19, reaching a top 10 national level in both 80c and 125cc class. His career in this was cut short after suffering from over 10 fractured bones.
He then came to Perth in 2004 and started training at a gym to rehab past injuries and developed passion for weight training. This led him to become a competitive bodybuilder. He went on to win several state titles but unfortunately after suffering from several injuries, he had to give up competitive bodybuilding.
Realising that poor body maintenance was the cause of most of his physical issues, he decided to become a remedial massage therapist to help others achieve their own specific goals while remaining injury free.
He understands the effects that injuries can have on people which is why he pushes for injury prevention as this is the only short cut to reach goals as fast as possible with the least stress.
Massage therapy is to him the best supplement for recovery and longevity.
