Ellen Halpenny - Canterbury Tactix 2008-2010, New Zealand Under 21's Squad 2007-2010

As a netballer your body gets beaten up at times. Tanya's treatments have been very good to my body and she understands my needs as an athlete. The environment is always very relaxing and professional. Tanya often goes beyond her duties as a therapist, as I find that Tanya truly cares about you and your health. It amazes me the experience Tanya has and she has been instrumental in my success as an athlete.

Ali - Multisport Athlete

Tanya's massage therapy has been pivotal in my recovery from a kayaking back injury and continual therapy has further improved my performance in kayaking, biking and climbing. I recommend Tanya to every sports enthusiast.

Jean Kite - Kayaker, Canoe Polo

I do a lot of kayaking and work at a computer all day so I often get really tense shoulder and neck muscles. Tanya really eases this tension and helps with recovery from competitions. Being an athlete herself she aways sends me away with stretches and exercises as well as a great massage. I can get back into my kayak feeling more comfortable which has helped increase my performance!

Peter - Competitive Cyclist

Being an avid cyclist, and getting a few years under my belt, it is great to know a weekly massage with Tanya, and her magic hands, will iron out the 'niggles' and get me ready for the next weeks demands. Tanya's sporting back ground makes it so much easier to relate to and identify problem points, meaning you get so much more from each massage.

Rowena - Competitive Cyclist

Tanya has helped me so much with all my injuries. I feel that I am in such safe hands.

Mardi Neumann - Eco ME Limited

I am fussy when it comes to massage therapists and find it difficult to find someone who can actually get me back into the game after ongoing migraines or muscle fatigue. Over the past 14 months I have been seeing Tanya - with great results, reducing my migraines and headaches and helping me find the cause of some of my pain. I have recommended Tanya to many of my friends - especially those with ongoing back issues and they agree she is fantastic with an excellent knowledge of how the body works and pain management. More recently, Tanya has become my personal trainer for the Catch Fitness 20 Week Body and Lifestyle Challenge. I am learning more about what I am capable of through training sessions and am motivated to really put in the hard yards. The best part of this is that I am seeing results daily and my friends are all commenting on the changes in both my body physically and attitude to life.

Ngara Luessi - winner Most Improved Lower Body (20 Week Challenge)

Tanya has been my trainer for the Catch Fitness 20 week challenge. Through her I have gained knowledge about training my body to be more efficient, and how get the most out of my work outs. Although at the time there was alot of pain, sweat and almost tears, it was worth every minute because Tanya pushed me to success in winning one of my catergories in the challenge. I am thrilled to achieve with her professional expertise, the results I was after. Thanks for everything Tanya, that was great experience!

Lee Meikle - 20 Week Challenger

Tanya is a great inspiration and very knowledgeable in Health & Fitness. Tanya was always coming up with great ideas of things I could be doing to help my progress along. I have a lot to thank Tanya for. She gave me the inspiration to take a good look at myself and want better for myself. My confidence has increased and I am taking pride in how I look again. I also know that if I fall off the wagon, Tanya is only a phonecall away and she will have me back on target in no time at all. Thanks for everything Tanya.
