Bernadette Cilia-Cooke - Born and bred in the Sutherland Shire, Bernadette aka "Bernie" has been a Massage and Sports therapist for over 24 years. Her passion for sport and the mechanics of the human body has made her a well-respected and successful Massage Therapist. Bernadette has become a popular choice in Sutherland Shire and surrounding suburbs for muscle tightness, pain relief and stress reduction. Bernadette has played a summer and winter sport since the age of 4 years old. She has always had an interest in Sport and Health which led her to study a career in Naturopathy 24 years ago. Attending Nature Care college, she realised her passion for sport and health extended to an interest in the human mechanics and her new passion was to help people feel better in body, mind and spirit, so she completed the Diploma of Remedial Massage and was recommended to then pursue a Diploma of Sports Therapies. With these qualifications she landed a job with Soccer Australia, travelling with the Junior NSW team massaging, taping and going through warmup and cool downs. But even after following her dream, she realised she still wanted to guide people to better health so she completed her Adv. Diploma of Naturopathy where after a year of travelling abroad, she opened her clinic in Caringbah South in 2000 and remains there today.
