Remedial Massage & Dry Needling Therapist
Dip RM, Dip NT, Cert Dry Neelding
My name is Felecia and I am a passionate Remedial Massage Therapist.
I am originally from the US and have been practicing for over 15 years in the US, New Zealand and Australia.
I graduated with a Diploma in Remedial Massage from New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in the USA in 2002. I have been lucky enough to work closely with chiropractors and massage therapists in integrated health clinics, and in 2011 I worked in a physio clinic and fitness club in Wellington, New Zealand.
I received my Diploma of Remedial Massage in Australia in 2012 and have been working here in Sydney with chiropractors and physiotherapists since.
I am passionate about soft tissue techniques, especially myofascial release and undertook a 1 year mentorship with Chris O'Brien in myofascial release training. I have also undertaken training in Dry Needling and use a unique method that follows the myofascial lines in the body to release tension and restore function. I am also passionate about all types of remedial and sports massage such as trigger point therapy, deep tissue and Swedish massage.
I am interested in finding what the root cause is of your pain and find great pleasure in helping clients with chronic problems that other practitioners have been unable to help with.
I have a strong interest in exercise and movement. I keep fit at the gym by training with a personal trainer, which also gives me personal experience of the benefits of exercise.
I am also passionate about plant medicine which gives me an insight into other causes of dysfunction in the body.
As of the beginning of this year (2018) I have undertaken a degree in Nursing and Midwifery. This has been to deepen my understanding of the body and taking care of people.

I have had four 1 hour massage sessions with Felecia Smith. I have found her friendly and very professional. The treatment has been beneficial for pain in my lower back and legs.

Very professional over the phone, and were able to book in an appointment for the same day. Felecia was very knowledgeable and was also well versed in dry needling, which was fantastic because it's hard to find someone with the confidence and skills needed for this practice.
Great experience all round!
