Alisha Iannotti

Remedial Massage Therapist

Alisha Iannotti – Remedial Massage Therapist

Alisha’s focus is about helping people who are going through rehab from an injury, or any other on-going pain, to get back to their full potential. After high school she completed her first year of physiotherapy at Uni SA. However, towards the end of the year she decided that it wasn’t the right path for her. From here, she discovered remedial massage. So, she decided to enroll at The Australian Institute of Fitness and complete her Certificate IV and Diploma of Remedial Massage. She found herself really enjoying it and became particularly passionate about sports massage. This led her to obtain an ongoing volunteering role at the Woodville – West Torrens football club, assisting with players injuries and recovery. Alisha completed her dry needling course at City Physiotherapy which enabled her to gain new techniques to incorporate into her treatments.
