Move better. Live better.

We help athletes and those leading active lifestyles enhance their performance and improve their recovery through sports and remedial massage.

Our team of highly-qualified therapists also help anyone who has an office and or work-related injury such as lower back pain.

At Fitlife Sports Massage we believe your body is your vehicle and you should treat it the same way you treat your car. It needs the right fuel, oil (movement) and water and regular servicing.

Launched in 2015 by owner Tanya Brabin, the clinic has two locations that clients can visit in Cannington and Mount Hawthorn.


Owner, Tanya Brabin is a qualified Remedial Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer with a special interest in maintaining strength and movement capacity as we age. Her special interests lie in treating shoulder dysfunction for conditions like tendonitis, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) and impingement syndromes with a combination of massage and rehabilitative exercise. Tanya’s aim is always to prevent the need for surgery or corticosteroid injections.

Tanya keeps up to date with the latest developments in sports and remedial massage taking regular professional development courses.

She is passionate about seeing everyone move in the way that their bodies were designed to move and not as they have been conditioned to by their environment and the injuries they’ve sustained. Tanya believes everyone can benefit from an active lifestyle, a balanced diet and regular specialised massage treatments.
