About Wayne Cooley - Your Remedial Massage Therapist/Acupuncturist

Wayne's passion and dedication to remedial massage and acupuncture has stemmed from his own injuries playing sport. Like most people, Wayne's need to be pain and injury free was overwhelming. He discovered the miraculous effects of what proper muscular diagnosis, remedial massage and acupuncture can do. He changed careers and started his own study of the trade over 25 years ago.

Since then, Wayne has been helping people achieve optimum health by diagnosing and treating muscular ailments through remedial massage, Chinese cupping and acupuncture. Wayne's client base is vast including people who are amateur or elite athletes, and from children through to the elderly.

Cooley Health Clinic is a family business and you will often see Wayne's beautiful twin daughters in the clinic. You might run into Wayne either running or cycling around  the streets of Arana Hills, swimming at one of the local pools or playing his guitar between client bookings.

Wayne is a member of the Australian Natural Therapies Association (ANTA) which is the largest national association of traditional medicine and natural therapies for practitioners who work in the areas of health care and preventative medicine.
