Massage Therapist

Marge Vrain 

Hello, my name is Marge Vrain. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Massage Therapist. I am thrilled to have joined the team at Bell Place Physiotherapy, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

As a 19 year old, studying Naturopathy, I developed a love and fascination for Massage Therapy. Therefore, my passion for this therapeutic modality has carried on for many years.

Over the last 18 years, I have had experience with a wide range and variety of Massage methods and techniques. I have worked within Massage and Beauty Salons, Aromatherapy Holistic Healthcare practices and gymnasiums.

My qualifications include a Certificate in Full Body Massage and I am continuously enthusiastic about personal development and adding to my knowledge by participating in Massage training.

Yoga and Pilates

Sara Goldthorpe

Hi, my name is Sara and I am excited to bring Pilates to Bell Place! I am a certified Reformer, Mat Pilates and Barre instructor, also in the process of completing my Diploma of Professional Pilates. My Pilates journey started with a lifelong love of movement and dance and through this have developed a true appreciation for the way movement can heal, not only the body but the mind as well. My classes will help you unwind, re-connect and build strength from the inside, out. Head over to our website and book your spot today!

Amber Ryan

Hi there, my name is Amber and I welcome you to our yoga practice. I began teaching 8 years ago after a lifetime love affair with the practice. My belief is that yoga teaches us to connect with our breath and quieten our inner turmoil. Yoga is what you make it. Be it to slow down and breathe, strengthen, or increase flexibility. And let’s have some fun. Namaste
