Alex Oxford

Alexander Oxford, CEO Postural Facilitation

Alexander founded Spinopractic Massage utilising deep tissue mobilisation because it was getting results. “I have been involved in bodywork since the age of 12 when my back was debilitated. Ever since that time, I was interested in what was getting results. The more I researched and tested techniques the more I found that going into deep fascia was getting the best results.”

To prepare for his career in massage, Alexander earned a Diploma of Remedial massage in 1993 and an Advanced Diploma of NeuroSpinology in 2005. He is also a trainer in NLP and hypnosis. Alexander stays abreast of the latest in the field of massage by regularly taking professional development courses. He is passionate about learning more and more each day.

For Alexander, the most gratifying aspect of his role is helping people.

I know how much it changed my life; I wanted to give back that gift.”

His passion extends in teaching others to become a Master Practitioner of Spinopractic Massage.

When he’s not working, Alexander enjoys being with his daughter and his partner. He also likes going to the gym and working out with weights. His other favourite thing to do is going to the movies.

Sonja Waltters

Sonja Walters, Spinopractic Masseuse

In her role, Sonja loves helping people’s bodies facilitate healing so that they can live their best life. She decided to get into the massage profession because she received a Spinopractic Massage from Alex on a regular basis.

I was amazed at the effectiveness of the massage compared with anything else I had tried.”

Sonja was a personal trainer as well and knew that if she incorporated deep fascia mobilisation for her clients, not only would they recover from injury more quickly, she could help prevent injury and keep her clients in top form.

Sonja developed a passion for helping people mobilise their muscles and decided to join the team at The Joint Chiropractically. She is a Certified Master Practitioner of Spinopractic Massage. Sonja graduated from Spinopractic Massage Academy in 2019.

When she’s not working, Sonja likes to lift weights, stay fit and enjoy the great outdoors. In particular, she enjoys paddle boarding, bushwalking, rock climbing or just walking on the beach. She also likes to watch her kids play sport and see movies with them. Her other favourite activities are helping out in her local church and hanging out with friends and family.

Sonja believes that life should not be all about the individual, but that we should strive to lift those around us, helping others to achieve great things in life.
