Welcome to Chris - our new grad therapist
Chris is a natural carer, beginning his career as a caregiver in a retirement village in his hometown of Invercargill, while studying nursing through the Southern Institute of Technology. He then decided it was time to hit the outdoors, gaining a Certificate in Outdoor Receational Leadership from SIT, and spending years exploring the caves, rivers, forests and mountains of Southland, before heading north to Christchurch.
As a serial learner, Chris then completed a Level 6 Diploma in Science with CPIT (now Ara) then Certificates in Quality Systems, Quality Assurance and Management, and Energy and Chemical Operations. In 2021 Chris began his journey with massage therapy, starting his Level 5 Diploma in Wellness and Relaxation Massage at Ara, the stepping stone to the Level 6 Diploma in Remedial Massage, which he recently completed. If his past is anything to go by, he'll continue his ongoing learning in the future!
Chris is a self-confessed nerd. He loves anime and takes any opportunity to cosplay! Unfortunately he's also camera shy, so there are no recent photos of him in costume - but we'll work on it!
When he's not working (or nerding) you can find Chris in a group fitness class at the gym, relaxing in the Botanical Gardens, out with his partner randomly exploring the many new places opening around Christchurch, or at home with their overlord cat Lady - who really is the boss of the house.
You can book in with Chris for relaxation massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage and pregnancy massage.
