Chrissy Ryan - Naturopathy & Remedial Massage

Diploma of Naturopathy, mATMS

Apart from Pregnancy massage, from September 2012 Chrissy is only seeing new clients via referral of practitioners, clients and friends.

Chrissy Ryan began practising therapeutic massage in Balmain in 1985 while completing her 4 year Diploma of Natural Therapies at the NSW/Sydney College of Natural Therapies. She combines Remedial Massage, Acupressure and Exercise therapy to help relieve muscle and joint pain and tension for both acute and chronic conditions.

Since becoming a Naturopath in 1988, Chrissy has continued to combine Therapeutic Massage, Herbal Medicine and Nutritional advice to assist people with both chronic and acute health conditions. Her techniques combine very well to encourage the body to strive for balance and thus a state of wellbeing.

Health conditions successfully treated by Chrissy include:

  • chronic headaches in both adults and children

  • common flus and colds

  • women's and men's health problems

  • antenatal and post natal conditions

    as well as

  • preventative health care and dietary advice

Chrissy's focus as a Naturopath is to nurture and encourage people rather than lecture and provide regimes.
