“My shoulder was killing me from excessive computer use but doctors and physios had not been able to help me, so when someone suggested Rolfing and more precisely Nick to me, I thought I’d give it a go. I had no idea what Rolfing was, but I immediately liked Nick and his approach. As we progressed through the 10 first sessions, my whole body started to feel different and by the end my shoulder pain was gone and I simply felt like I had one complete aligned body and not various disconnected bits! Since the first sessions I have been seeing Nick every 3 months or so to maintain things and my shoulder still holds out despite at times excessive abuse. From what I have learnt over the years and through seeing other Rolfers when Nick was not available, I believe Nick is a genuine master in his field. He has always made me feel unique and genuinely cared for in our sessions. He is compassionate, direct, confident, creative, respectful, practical and extremely effective in what he does. I feel very lucky to have found Nick and always recommend him to anyone I meet who have body issues I think he can help with. It is not often you meet someone as good at what he does as Nick. Thank you for all your help.”

“I have been a patient of Nicks for more than 5 years and he has helped my body prepare for and recover from a double hip replacement and two pregnancies as well as the usual day to day niggles that come with sitting at a desk and carrying children around all day. He has succeeded where other therapies have failed and leaving one of his sessions is like walking on a cloud. Thanks Nick you truly have the magic touch!”

“I first met Nick Barbousas after 12 months of struggling with a severe hamstring injury and post-PRP complications which was creating enormous stress in my life. I had been a healthy, athletic, active surf lifesaver, soft sand runner, ocean swimmer and half marathon runner reduced to barely being able to sit in a chair for half an hour. I didn’t know that much about Rolfing and I felt I had already tried every avenue possible from many types of massage, physio, osteopathy, healings but I was desperate so I thought I would give it a try. Nick was very honest and upfront with me, saying if I didn’t notice any relief after 3 sessions, it probably wasn’t going to help me. Luckily, he has miracle hands! He got me back running in such a short time, even soft sand which the physio said I would never do again! Nick is an exceptional Rolfing professional with an enormous depth of expertise and experience. With his compassionate, professional, thorough and supportive approach, I would highly recommend him to anyone. I cannot speak highly enough about Nick!”

“Before Nick treated me I had constant sciatic pain and a lot of other constant pain with my legs and hips. After Nicks treatment I no longer wake at night with pain and have little pain ever, my legs are noticeably straighter, I walk and exercise at a higher levels.”

“I first started seeing Nick four years ago after the birth of my first child. I have a long history of neck and back problems, including scoliosis and whiplash and my neck and shoulders would completely seize up every few weeks – I’d be unable to move my neck and feel severe pain even when resting. It was quite debilitating. I tried countless osteopaths, chiropractors and different massage therapies over the years but didn’t find anything particularly helpful, some therapies providing short-term relief only. Nick was different. There were many times when I’d go in to see Nick with a stiff, painful neck feeling pain around 8-9/10 on the pain scale and with almost no range of motion in my neck and walk out an hour later able to move again – just a niggle or some tenderness in the affected muscles. That was in the bad old days. After some time getting my body straightened out and getting to know my patterns of restriction, Nick also referred me to a highly skilled Pilates teacher who does remedial work specifically designed to correct poor patterns of movement. So Nick has been like my panel-beater/mechanic sorting out my dented body and the Pilates instructor has made me stronger and taught me how to ‘drive my car’ properly to avoid crashing in future! I’ve never felt stronger or better in my body. My second baby is now 8 months old and weighs > 11kg, yet I am managing to lug him around without any neck pain for over 6 months! Thanks Nick!”

“I am in the Natural Therapies industry myself and with a chronic problem I have seen a lot of bodywork practitioners. I can honestly say I have never known of anyone as skilled and effective as Nick. I am sure he is the main reason I remain upright. I recommend him wholeheartedly. Seeing Nick will be the biggest favour you could ever do for your body.”

“Whenever I have a friend with any sort of muscular pain or structural issue, I refer them to Nick who I fondly refer to as “Nick with the magical hands”. Nick is one of the best body worker’s in the industry. He has helped me finally stand up straight, and is always great to visit when I get stiff and sore from too much work at my desk. I highly recommend him to everyone including my own family, friends and clients!”
