Warwick masseur fit, well and he's working full-time
HE MAY have just had brain surgery, but remedial massage therapist Phillip Strang is back in good health and working full-time.
After rumours began to surface that Mr Strang had fallen ill, he said he was ready to set the story straight.
One day while cycling down Wood St, Mr Strang had a brain seizure and came off his bike.
"The MRI showed that I virtually had some abnormal cells at the front of my brain and it had irritated my brain, so I just had it cut out," he said.
"Then work started to drop off because people thought I was sick, but that's not true at all.
"I'm back, I'm healthy, and I'm working full-time."
He operates from 10am-5pm Monday to Friday from his Bisley St home and is eager to get his client-base back to what it was.
"I used to average about 20 massages a week so I'd like to get to that again," he said.
"I just want to let everyone know that I'm not unwell and I am back at work."
Mr Strang has been in the massage game for 10 years and specialises in remedial techniques and pain relief.
He said his focus had been on treating the symptoms, finding the cause and addressing the source of pain.
"The remedial techniques that I use are aimed at improving the circulation of oxygen, good nutrition, healthy eating and drinking, and good drainage of the waste product back out of the cells," Mr Strang said.
His qualifications include a Diploma in Remedial Massage Therapy and he can perform reflexology, relaxation massage and sports massage.
"I have worked as a sports therapist for the local AFL club, the Warwick Redbacks, for three and a half years in the capacity of injury prevention and first aid during games and rehabilitation of soft tissue injuries," Mr Strang said.
He said he was willing to help anyone with queries about muscular pain, exercises or how to correct posture and walking techniques.
