Bandoll PhoDip. RM
Bandoll is our remedial massage therapist in Broadway. He prides himself on providing the highest standard of care to every client he meets. He thrives on seeing his clients reach their movement goals whether that be getting out of a chair easier, playing more, learning new skills and doing so, pain-free. Before completing his Diploma of Remedial Massage through the Australian College of Natural Therapies (ACNT), Bandoll started his career as a personal trainer. He prides himself of ensuring longevity in a client’s training life through the educational aspect of fitness, not just the physical component. With over 10 years of experience as a personal trainer, Bandoll made a smooth transition over to massage therapy through his knowledge of anatomy, movement and injury prevention/management. Bandoll has a wealth of experience treating people from all walks of life. He previously worked in a rheumatology clinic, gaining valuable experience working with clients to help manage flare-ups and promote movement in chronic conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and gout. He has also been fortunate enough to have worked in sports massage with UFC coaches, the Australian Women’s Cricket Team, and top elite tennis players at the ATP Cup. Bandoll understands that there is no “quick fix” and that when it comes to health overall, there are so many factors that come into play. Working alongside an integrated team such as Healthfix ensures every client’s best interest is looked after. Personally to keep fit, from powerlifting to gymnastics, from MMA to weightlifting and even dance, there isn’t much that Bandoll hasn’t done. He is constantly seeking to learn new skills and encourages his clients to do the same. Training & Qualifications: • Diploma of Remedial Massage • Diploma of Fitness • Powerlifting Coach Level 1
