About Yvette and Massage Essentials

Yvette Croft

I am the owner and principal therapist and have worked as a Remedial Massage Therapist for over 25 years.

I started Massage Essentials in 2008 to provide essential Massage Therapy services.

Massage Essentials is a professional massage clinic located in Tuggeranong and specialises in a range of remedial and sports massage techniques.

I began studying Remedial Massage Therapy in 1994 with an ‘Introduction to Massage’ course at Canberra Institute of Technology. From there the passion grew and I continued on with my studies after the birth of my first child.  I completed an Advance Diploma in Applied Science (Remedial Massage) in 1999.

I have worked with many different modalities including Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. I have also been a Sports Massage Therapist for the Canberra Raiders for the last 10 seasons and have worked with many visiting NRL teams, including the Australian and New Zealand teams in April 2013. I have worked with many elite and local sporting teams including Brumbies Rugby and  Molonglo Juggernauts FC. I also travelled with the ACT Athletics team to All Schools and National Championships for 3 years.

I enjoy working with many different clients to achieve the best results for the individual, using a variety of Remedial techniques.  Some techniquies include Myofascial Release (MFR), Trigger Point Therapy (TPT), Deep Tissue Massage and advice on stretching and home exercises.
