Alia Habib

Hello, my name is Alia and I'm a qualified and experienced remedial massage therapist who is incredibly passionate about helping others improve their health and wellbeing. I employ a range of massage techniques that are customized to every individual depending on their needs and current physical conditions. My aim is to help you achieve better movement, relieve pain, muscle soreness and reduce overall stress by stimulating blood supply, eliminating toxins, increasing relaxation and flexibility.

Throughout my time as a remedial massage therapist, I've worked on a wide range of clients including elderly, pregnant women, athletes, cross fitters, desk workers, artists, and the overall general public. I have a great interest in pregnancy and sports massage as I have recently worked with the AFLW Essendon players/team to help them with their overall body function, injuries, recovery, and wellness.

A little bit about me I spend most of my free time doing physical activities either you see me running, rollerblading or walking in the local parks or at the gym lifting weights, in a Pilates or Zumba class focusing on improving my physical fitness. Also, every year I look forward to joining the fundraising foundation running events (run Melbourne, Nike marathon etc) that happen across Melbourne such as the half marathons, 15kms runs, 10km runs, 5km runs and I’m hoping in the following years with optimal health and physical peak I will be able to complete a full marathon.

It's been a pleasure absorbing knowledge from a wide range of practitioners, mentors and different treatment options and I'm always keen to continue learning and evolving. I look forward to helping you feel better!
