Chris Tunn joins the team at CHH as a Remedial and Sports Massage Therapist

12th March 2024

We welcome Remedial and Sports Massage Therapist, Chris Tunn to the team at Canterbury Health Hub after graduating with a Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy in 2022 and Certificates III and IV in Fitness (2011). He is currently completing his Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy at the Australian College of Bodywork and is in his 2nd year of Physiotherapy at Victoria University.

Get to Know Chris

Chris recently relocated from sunny Queensland to Melbourne in pursuit of a more dynamic and fast-paced lifestyle. As a teenager, he was involved in soccer, cross country and athletics at state level. During this time, Chris developed an interest in how the body moves, which led him into the world of personal training.

Initially, Chris specialised in training clients for sports and high-performance events. However, he found himself spending more time rehabilitating clients' injuries. Over the years, Chris looked to improve his skill set to assist his clients, which led him to pursue studies in remedial massage. Equipped with a robust understanding of injury rehabilitation and iron thumbs (when required), Chris was able to achieve greater results for his clientele.

Chris infuses every treatment with his infectious enthusiasm, experience, genuine curiosity, and extensive knowledge. Treatments with Chris incorporate a variety of techniques, including myofascial release, positional release techniques, muscle energy techniques, stretching, dry needling, cupping, corrective movement patterning and rehab exercises.

Chris is currently pursuing his Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy at the Australian College of Bodywork. Additionally, he is in his second year of studying Physiotherapy at Victoria University. He has also completed further studies in cranial sacral technique, osteopathic cranial work and visceral (organs) release techniques, that he adopts in his treatments as required.

Chris enjoys treating people of all age groups, with a particular interest in those suffering from chronic pain conditions, especially of the head, neck, back, respiratory and jaw-related concerns (such as headaches, back pain, dizziness, jaw clenching, grinding, breathing and swallowing issues). He also has a strong interest in treating sporting injuries, those suffering from posture related pain and scoliosis, and also providing extensive exercise and rehab programs for his clients.

Outside of the clinic, Chris runs a small business where he buys and sells collectible items. He also enjoys going to the gym and participates in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (the gentle martial art of folding your opponent up like origami).
