|Jerry Packer is the owner of Urban Serenity Massage and a qualified
Remedial Massage Therapist. Jerry has always pursued caring roles in
life: working as a volunteer for the St John Ambulance Service, then
moving onto working as a personal carer in a nursing home. He then went
on to complete a Bachelor Degree of Nursing and worked for several
years as a Registered Nurse.
At the end of 1994 Jerry realised that
his previous caring roles, although were very rewarding, were not his
passion - he soon realised that his passion laid in more physical
aspects of healing: Massage, or more specifically Remedial massage. He
has avidly pursued massage therapy ever since. He has completed a
certificate in massage therapy, a diploma in remedial massage and have
participated in several other courses and modalities of massage. Some
of which include Cranio-sacral therapy and Traditional Chinese Cupping.
Jerry completed a certificate in assessment and training and has been
lecturing massage at Endeavour College of Natural Health (formally S.A.
Health Education Centre) since January 2008, which he also thoroughly
He is a member of both the Traditional Medicine Society and the
Australian Association of Massage Therapists.
It is Jerry's belief that massage allows the body to identify
malfunctions within itself and initiate a healing process within those
areas. Massage does not heal anything, but by warming the area and
promoting the release of endorphins it allows the body to identify
areas of inflammation or injury and begin the healing process itself. It
takes a physical, but also a psychological aspect to achieve this on
both the therapist and the client!
