Liisa Tiganik - massage therapist

Liisa Tiganik trained at TAFE Randwick in Sydney, Australia.

Liisa has an excellent eye for issues in your functional anatomy. If you want to get to the bottom of what is going wrong with your muscles, and potentially also affects your joint health, you can do no better than booking a 45 minute or 60 minute session with her. It will give her enough time to have a detailed look at tightnesses and imbalances in your musculoskeletal system.

She will then start treating you with her wide range of advanced massage techniques like trigger point work, soft tissue release, myofascial treatments, etc. Finally, she will give you an exercise or two to help you help yourself, and she will follow up with you a few days later, to check on your progress.

Book an initial session with her now.

Monika Koscian - massage therapist and fascia worker

Monika’s first contact with sports massage was through her dance training, and working with various therapist who were helping her maintain optimal physical performance, as well as providing injury prevention and rehabilitation. Now she’s putting all her experiences into working as a therapist herself.

Being a dancer, she developed a strong interest in the human body bio-mechanics, which now influences her approach to addressing any musculoskeletal issues, big and small. She uses various soft tissue techniques, but also looks at postural correction, and movement re-education as part of the treatment, with the overall goal to re-create a healthy, and efficient body movement that can be maintained in the long term.

Monika’s clients range from office workers to triathletes and dancers, but in each case she’s tailoring treatments according to individual abilities and needs.

She continues her professional development by attending CPD courses, workshops and conferences. She continues her dance training, and practices yoga.

Monika received her diploma from the London School of Sports Massage.
