Amy Fraser

 Remedial Massage Therapist 

G’day I’m Amy Fraser, Registered Nurse and Remedial Massage Therapist at Hope Therapy.


My nursing career started almost 20 years ago now!! In the early days I travelled to London to live and work for a couple of years. I returned to Warwick to work for a short while, to save a bit of money then travel to Canada………………that was about 17years ago I’m still here and have not travelled to Canada!! All thanks to a night out and having a drink with my now husband Rob.
 

In 2020 I decided to study a Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy and I just love it. I like the challenge of figuring out the cause of a person’s signs and symptoms and treating the cause. The human body is a fascinating machine.
 

When I’m not working I enjoy getting keeping fit, getting outside and travelling with my beautiful family in our caravan.
