Heather Dunlop

Remedial Massage Therapist

Who: Hello, my name is Heather, I am one the newest members of the Clarity Team. I was very lucky to have found my niche in remedial massage therapy at a young age.  I studied my Diploma at the Australian Institute of Fitness here in Adelaide alongside some very talented inspiring therapists. I like to spend my free time with those I love most; my close friends and family. My favourite thing to do is go for a never-ending run along the beach with my music in, thinking about everything (and sometimes nothing at all!) and just enjoying the company of my own self.

Why: This passion strings from my ongoing interest in the importance between an individual’s physical capabilities in relation to their body, and their state of mind. I experienced the wonders of a little self maintenance and it inspired my to learn more about the musculoskeletal system so I could educate others and give them tools and resources so they can thrive all the time!

What:

  • Lower back pain (assisting in glute activation)
  • Hip and joint discomfort
  • Neck and shoulder aches + pains
  • Helping with recovery of muscle strains + regaining full range of movement

 

How:

  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Assisted stretching (PNF)
  • Sports recovery massage
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Strength and stretching exercises
  • Pregnancy massage

 

My massage technique is catered to your specific needs, but in general I like to give a firm flowing massage targeting these specific areas and assisting muscles causing any pain or discomfort in the best way I know how… massage!

Julia Potter

Pilates Teacher

“Change happens through movement & movement heals.” Joseph Pilates

Julia is a Polestar certified Pilates Matwork instructor in constant awe of the transformative power of movement. Initially taking classes to alleviate general aches & pains, she found Pilates to be much more than a system of physical exercise; rather, an holistic approach to whole body health & wellbeing:

“Joseph Pilates referred to his method as “the complete coordination of mind, body & spirit.” It’s not just about ‘going for the burn,’ it’s about how you feel on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally, & beyond. It is a dialogue – a connection – between all aspects of self. You can tell what is working, what isn’t, imbalances in the body, mental blocks, emotional pulls… Pilates offers the willing student precious moments of self-reflection & an opportunity for self-improvement. The exercises don’t necessarily become easier; as you progress you delve deeper into the nuances of each & learn how they relate to, & build upon, each other. Pilates is a continual process of refinement.”

Julia teaches a style of Pilates that progresses small, isolated movements into full body integrative sequences. Emphasis is on technique & precise movement, with the ultimate aim of establishing efficient movement patterns which then carry over into everyday life. Classes are engaging & immersive, with changing choreography & options for modification, allowing you to work at your own level of challenge. Expect to feel taller, stronger, lighter & more confident in your own skin.

Julia teaches Mat Pilates on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings. To book your class, head here.
