Massage Therapy

By: Roman Meyer  06-Jun-2011

Born in Vienna, Austria, Roman initially started working with patients as a nurse and in 1979 trained to become a Hospital Theatre Assistant. He soon became interested in preventative methods of health care. In order to take a more active role in supporting recovery and convalescing of people he obtained a Diploma in Remedial Therapy in 1986. The style of training Roman went through, traditionally involved close contact with treating Physiotherapists and Doctors.

In 1987 Roman migrated to Australia and commenced business in Hobart, Tasmania in 1988. Working within the biggest fitness centre in town, he soon found himself busy treating athletes of all sports as well as being contracted by the Tasmanian Institute of Sport. In the lead up to the 1992 Olympic Games the White Water Slalom Canoeing Team started to take Roman onto the road with them. With Peter Eckhardt, part owner of this clinic, qualifying for the Barcelona Olympic Games, this was the beginning of a collaboration that lasted until today. When Peter became Nat. Team Coach and Physiotherapist after 1994, Roman kept traveling and working with the team up to the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

With the opening of the first internationally accredited Massage College in Hobart, Roman obtained a Teaching Certificate II and taught Massage Therapy until 2002.

In 1996 Roman became part of the Hobart Pain Clinic which offers sufferers of chronic pain with skills for management.

This led him to further his studies in the area of counseling, stress management and modification of attitude.
Roman runs classes in Relaxation and Meditation and holds a certificate in Reiki II.

This clinic looks after athletes of all ranges as well as convalescing with injuries sustained at the work place or in a MVA. Since Sportscare was established in 1992 Roman, Peter and Debbie have worked together closely and found their skills complement each other well.
