Debbie Hartley

Hi, I'm Debbie Hartley and I am a qualified Massage Therapist, having completed my Certificate of Massage in 2011 at the New Zealand College of Massage in Wellington

I come from a background in health after having practised as a Comprehensive Registered Nurse for 28 years (Qualified in Nelson in 1988) and am also a trained Midwife (Tasmania 1993). In these years I have gained experience in a huge array of areas, from hatch to dispatch and everything in between. My last role was as a Practice Nurse in a GP setting for the past seven years.

To me, your health is your greatest asset and although we often state that prevention is better than cure, our current health system is so overloaded with dealing with the sick and very sick, that prevention is sadly often prioritised low on the list.

That's where I decided I could make a difference in helping people to help themselves to achieve and maintain optimal health, and massage has so many health benefits. But it isn't just about the physical massage, it's about the whole experience of looking after your health at many levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. We all know we can get sick when we are run down and stressed, so I have built my cabin in a peaceful, non-clinical setting so that we can include every aspect of your health.

Here we are on an equal level, you and I, planning your session on what most suits your needs. It's not a treat to take time out and look after yourself - it's vital! You don't need an excuse, book now!
