About Me – Gitta Wright
I am Swiss-German and live permanently in Australia since December 2003. I worked in various rehabilitation clinics in Switzerland and have a wide range of experience in the different fields of rehabilitation. My original overseas-qualification is not recognised in Australia.
Since February 2004 I have been working as a Soft Tissue Therapist and Personal Trainer in Perth. As a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS), I am recognised for Remedial Massage Therapy. Health Fund contributions are therefore available from most funds.
My philosophy is simple – Get the client better
There are many roads which lead to a better health and combining whatever technique and advice is necessary to benefit my client’s condition is my main focus. In recent years I have developed a very unique approach to improve the well-being of my clients and my original education and training now only serve me as a background knowledge. Natural remedies and a holistic approach are currently the main focus of my work.
