Profile – $85/hr, $50/30 mins

Iris chose to pursue these studies not only because she’s passionate about helping others by sharing her knowledge, but also to benefit her career as a professional athlete.

Iris competes in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series as well as FINA High Diving World Championships and World Cups. In these events she regularly finishes just underneath the top five in the world. Further she loves going surfing and snowboarding. Iris gained most of her practical experience after finishing her degree in 2018 by helping fellow high divers and teammates working alongside several diving clubs around the world (Plymouth UK, Zurich CH, Dresden GER and Auckland NZ).

She was working with athletes of all levels of performance form elite to juniors to amateur. Iris believes that massage therapy is one of the most underestimated treatment methods to address injury prevention and rehabilitation as well as stress relief. She is qualified in injury assessment and to provide Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage, Myofascial and Soft Tissue Release, Joint Mobilising, Trigger point and Neuromuscular Therapy. She can also advise on injury prevention and rehabilitation exercise. Iris will combine these treatment modalities in a personal treatment plan to address various issues, injuries, pathologies and chronic pain.
