Jane is a fantastic remedial therapist. She was aware of pain and problems with my body without me even knowing it! She worked wonders on my whole body and was not in a rush to kick me out once my time was up. She took the time to explain how to keep myself in tip top shape and could not... More

This is the second year running I've been to Port Douglas and have been lucky enough to receive a massage from Jane both visits. Jane is very skilled at what she does. She holds a natural ability to locate the problem areas and provide relief. I like that she continues to develop her repertoire of healing techniques and knowledge to... More

When I booked my partner in for a birthday massage, Jane let me know that she would be away and reassured me that her replacement was also good. This certainly turned out to be the case, as he felt that his muscular issues had been lessened- he was thrilled with how good it was.

Working out of Shantara, Jane has gifted hands which locate and correct all manner of aches, pains and tension. My husband visited again this year while on holiday and she has been the only person to enable him to walk without a limp due to post operative scaring/tightness or whatever. Generous with her time and clever too. We thank you... More

Having read the positive reviews here, I booked a 90-minute massage with Shantara Day Spa. A lady called Linda massaged for me. Probably it was my fault not confirming if this is Jane to do the massage or not at the booking. Linda worked reasonably hard but I have to say her massage is pretty ordinary and in no way... More

Perfect way to start my holiday. Not staying at the Shantara but couldn't go past the great reviews about Jane. After an hour session I am feeling so relaxed, not aching all over, in a general better mood. Plus Jane is such a lovely person & made me happy to be there! Thank you times a million! Such a shame...

I had a unique experience; a remedial massage like none I'd had before. Jane has a gift and an authentic approach that truly brings balance and harmony to the body. Having had reconstructive surgery on numerous joints, Jane was able to reduce my inflammation and muscle stiffness. I only wish she lived in Melbourne! Thanks Jane Cheers Janine

Jane is special. I have had neck surgery with ongoing problems. Jane has helped me more than any other therapists over the years
