Hi, I’m Georgie!

I’m a remedial massage therapist and founder of the Deep Unwind, a boutique remedial massage practice in Woollahra. I am also the mother of two teenagers. We regularly escape Sydney to go camping down the South Coast — I love being in nature with my children. I am also a meditator, swimmer and weightlifter.

Health and wellness and the mind-body connection is a lifelong obsession. I came to massage over 14 years ago when my kids were little. In my twenties I worked as a pastry chef in some of Sydney’s most demanding, stressful kitchens (such as Neil Perry’s Rockpool) and opened my own cafe before obtaining my yoga teaching certification. I then spent a decade as an Ashtanga yoga instructor, working as a private instructor to some of Sydney’s top galleries and architectural firms.

Helping people reconnect to themselves and down-regulate their taxed nervous systems is my professional focus and calling. Probably because I trained in massage as a young mother, I have maintained a deep personal interest in the health and fitness of mothers. The focus of my early work was pregnancy massage. I am a lifelong learner, always seeking new tools and certifications to deepen the ways I support my clients.

If you are curious to know more about what I offer at the Deep Unwind, please reach out!

Where and how long have you lived in Sydney’s east?

I have lived in the east for the past 25 years. I am blessed to live near Cooper Park – a hidden gem in Sydney’s east.

Three words that describe what it’s like to live in the eastern suburbs?



Natural beauty


How many children?


Favourite Park?

There are so many beautiful parks I visited when the kids were young.

Now I love being near Cooper Park, and the wonderous beauty it holds.

Favourite Beach?

It may sound cliché but it’s Bondi Beach – I love the expansiveness of the horizon and swimming across the bay with my partner Christina.

Favourite kid friendly cafe?

Tucker, Bellevue Hill

Little Me on Bronte Road – especially for fur babies!

Favourite Coffee Spot?

Coffee is an essential start to my day, and I love waking early and walking to Makuto in Bondi Beach, whilst listening to insightful podcasts on the way.

Favourite date night place?

Dear Saint Eloise in Potts Point is the perfect date night venue – I love hanging out in the laneway with my partner watching the world go by. And the food and drinks are exceptional.

Where in the east have you yet to explore and would like to ?

I’ve always been interested to do the Malabar Headland National Park walk between Maroubra and Malabar Beaches, with its dramatic views and rugged bushland setting.

What would you like to see improve in the eastern suburbs?

Definitely the traffic and parking!

Favourite Local Shop?

The local produce markets in Double Bay every Thursday morning.

Favourite wet weather location?

Quiet time at home reading a book – I crave it.

Favourite Local family Weekend Activity?

Bondi markets on Saturdays and playing paddle ball on the beach.

Work or SAHM?

Initially I was a SAHM, and it was wonderful to be with my children and in itself a fulltime job!  Becoming a single parent family in their younger years, I became a working mother. The juggle is real, and this is why I am so passionate about supporting mothers through all stages of their journey via my work at the Deep Unwind.

If you are reading this interview and are in need of a ‘deep unwind’, I would love for you to visit me at my Woollahra based practice.

I am also offering a complimentary gift of a ‘take-home Deep Unwind experience’ to the Eastern Suburbs Mums community, when making your first booking at my practice. This gift includes a bag of my own blend of restorative magnesium bath salts and a sample of ‘After Hours’ calming herbal tea leaves by Hälsa. Just mention this article when making your appointment to receive this gift during your visit.

Motherly advice?

Parent from a place of deep understanding and acceptance, develop awareness around your own behaviours in order to foster deeper connections with your children.
