Ebony Jackson- Owner & Head Therapist
She completed her Diploma in Remedial Massage way back in 2005 with honours at the Australian College of Massage and Natural Therapies. She has been practicing since then, starting in health food stores, gyms, and working with local fitness clubs and sporting teams. She focused further on the sports field and has now worked with nearly every discipline at the elite level, including Tennis, AFL, Rugby, Swimming, Triathlon, Running, Netball, Soccer, Hockey, Cycling, Athletics, and Horse Racing Jockeys to name a few! Every year in January she works with the worlds best female tennis players at the Brisbane International.
Beginning her massage career on the Gold Coast, then embracing Australia's sporting capital in Melbourne, Ebony then relocated and worked in the 5 star spa on Hayman Island and 6 star spa at Qualia on Hamilton Island. There she looked after VIP clients of all backgrounds.
The Whitsundays is her favourite holiday destination and what better place to combine work with a healthy lifestyle for a while! In late 2017, she relocated back to the Gold Coast with her young family, and that is when Carrara Massage Therapies was created!
She has always been passionate about doing things naturally, organically, and for the body's maximum benefit. A vegetarian with many vegan interests, any products used fall within these beliefs. There is a strong focus on eliminating the need for harsh and extensive medications and surgeries- instead, helping the body to heal itself as it was designed.
There is no hard selling or quick appointments that make you feel like just another number. Her aim is to do everything she can to help you. All of the facts on your situation/circumstances and treatment will be presented to you, along with a suggested treatment plan. This way, you know upfront roughly what sort of work you'll be looking at to get back to optimal health. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, because she wants to help you understand how your body works and help you, to help yourself too.

Chelsea Pierce- Main Therapist
Chelsea has prioritised her family for the last few years but is now getting back into doing something for herself, and she loves helping people! Seeing the look on her clients face post treatment is what Chelsea finds most rewarding about being a massage therapist.
She has four children under 10 years of age so knows too well the challenges and stresses we face on a daily basis! She wants to make sure you get that much needed 'me time' but also the best treatment possible, not one that just goes through the motions as many therapists do these days.
From her spa experience she performed all treatments from body scrubs, facials and massage. She is very particular from her work in such a pristine environment so her attention to detail, finding the tight muscles, and working through specific tension areas is her strength, however she can also tailor a treatment to suit your needs if you prefer more of a relaxation style.
From her Phillipino background, she is a very dedicated therapist with quite strong hands. That is such as asset to this industry and her treatments are incredible because of this. So if you want some relief from problematic pain or areas of discomfort, or just a good deep tissue massage, then Chelsea wont disappoint!

Yumi grew up in Nagoya Japan with her older sister. She finished school then worked as a nail technician for many years before deciding she wanted to travel. She first travelled to Italy and studied the Italian language. She immersed herself in the culture working in a local Italian restaurant becoming fluent in Italian, enjoying all of the authentic pizza and gelato she could in that time.
4 years later, she moved to Australia perfecting the English language and learning about better ways to look after the body. First completing her Remedial Massage Diploma with Massage Schools Queensland, then studying Clinical Aromatherapy, she absolutely loves the natural Australian products we have here and how accessible they are.
