A small massage business based in Currumbin on the Gold Coast owned and run by Yvette Dooley.
I grew up on the Tweed Coast on a farm and haven’t moved far since.
After graduating high school, I went and studied a Psychology degree whilst working in the disability health sector. Massage was something I fell into and I fell pretty hard in the end.
Since graduating with a diploma of remedial massage, I have been running YLD Therapies and have also been contracted with a team to work on a permanent basis with the NRL team the Gold Coast Titans. It’s not something I ever saw myself doing but I have loved every minute of it. I’ve also been lucky enough to dabble in working on some visiting AFL teams to the Gold Coast, as well as NRL sides NSW Blues, Penrith Panthers, Canterbury Bulldogs, Parramatta Eels and the West Sydney Tigers.
A highlight so far though has been working back stage at the 2018 Blues Fest and Splendour in the Grass looking after the artists and their crew.
At YLD THERAPIES the main focus I have for each treatment is to assist you with reaching goals that you set for yourself. Generally, those goals include moving without pain, running further distances, feeling less tense or tight. No remedial massage session in my space in Currumbin, is ever the same. This is because not only is every body different, but your own body is also going to be different each time you walk through the door.
Remedial and sports massage are the treatment types that I love and specialise in. I actively engage in further education to learn the most up to date and most beneficial techniques to aide you in your recovery and movement. I am passionate about helping someone feel better than they felt when they walked in the door. Sometimes, however, a nice flowing Swedish (relaxation) massage is what is needed and I’m more than happy to leave someone feeling relaxed and blissed out.
I completed all of my qualifications right here in Queensland or just over the border.
