Harry Normand

Massage Therapist

I’ve been a remedial massage therapist and personal trainer since I made the switch from an engineering career in 2003. I‘d cracked my pelvis doing martial arts in 2002, and that’s pretty much what got me started on this second career.
After a couple of years of doing nothing at all on my surgeon’s advice, I got up and got strong again, and now I’m delighted to be able to investigate Townsville’s countryside on my mountain bike, and get out and play golf, tennis, and squash.
I love tracking down the causes of pain and helping you learn how to stay strong enough to stay pain-free, so you can out and do more of what you love too.
