As a professional dancer and athlete I know how important it is to keep your body - your machine - running smoothly. To be able to perform at my highest standard I needed a massage therapist who understands the body more like a physio would. Shane at Merrell Massage does just that. It is his knowledge and capability to apply that knowledge (as well as of course his ability to actually give the pressure necessary for a sports massage) that has me returning on a weekly basis.
I highly recommend people give him a try, you will not regret that you did.

Mini massages were the most popular choice of activity for our organisation celebrating Mental Health Month in October this year. Shane Merrell and his colleague were professional, friendly, and most importantly, qualified massage therapists that were able to provide great massages within 15 minute time slots. The feedback was excellent, our staff were appreciative and I will be definitely using Merrell Massage again next year. I would not hesitate to recommend Merrell Massage to any company looking to provide relaxation and rejuvenation to their staff.

Shane has been treating our family as a massage therapist for a couple of years. My teenage son is an elite rower with hyper mobile joints and associated injuries. He requires regular massage and Shane is always our first choice. He is professional and reliable, treating tight spots and injuries intuitively with strength and excellent advice. I recommend him highly.


As a competitive fitness model athlete, I need regular massages to keep my muscles performing at their full potential to maintain weight training 6+ days a week. I often experience lots of problems, especially with my left shoulder, and Shane was able to help diagnose the muscle/s that were causing the issue and treat it. Massages with Shane have become an important part of my regime.


As an athlete recovery and keeping my body in peak physical condition play a huge role in increasing my performance. Since getting massages with Shane I have been performing better in my sport and have had far less injuries and niggles. With Shane I always walk out feeling better than I walked in.
