At “Somewhere Unique’ we aspire towards the highest levels of service and professionalism to ensure the experience of our guests is consistently beyond all expectations. We also expect the same commitment from our suppliers, so that the entire chain of guest service is of the highest quality in every aspect. And one of our most professional and most dedicated providers is Hunter Massage Co.

Jo Potter, the Owner and Director of Hunter Massage Co. has been a Professional Massage Therapist for over 6 years, a Reiki Master for 8 years, and a Remedial Therapist for 3 years. Jo provides holistic treatments which are specifically tailored to the individual needs of each guest. Jo is respectful of massage being one of the world’s oldest forms of health care and, accordingly, her approach supports guests to move through a wide range of physical, emotional, and spiritual transitions in the most traditional and transformative way.

The entire team at Hunter Massage Co. take a holistic medicinal approach which is based on the art and science of healing to address the mind, body, and spirit. Each massage incorporates a range of therapies to prevent and treat disease and promote optimal health.

Remedial Massage is most commonly known for having a positive effect on the muscular system, but it also directly affects the nervous system, which produces a positive effect on hormone levels and overall wellbeing. The effect of massage on the nervous system depends on the direct and reflex reaction of the nerves stimulated or smoothed, but generally causes a calming, relaxing feeling. For example, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy, which applies pressure to tender muscle tissue to relieve pain and dysfunction, creates endorphins which are known to reduce pain and produce a sense of euphoria. In fact, after just 15 minutes of massage the feel-good effects of endorphins may last up to 48 hours.

Jo is also qualified to provide Modern Cupping Therapy which can be used to complement other alternative therapies. ‘Cupping’ assists in activating the body’s natural healing processes as well as restoring physical and emotional well-being. Jo can also provide pregnancy massage for all trimesters which addresses the root causes and not just the symptoms associated with maternal pains and aliments.

At ‘Somewhere Unique’ we have had a long and beneficial relationship with Hunter Massage Co. Once booked, a guest can enjoy a treatment without leaving their retreat, as Jo and her team will provide massages in the retreat or set up outside to enjoy the peace and the birdsong on the veranda.  A tranquil rural escape to ‘Somewhere Unique’ is always further enhanced by a specialised professional treatment from Jo and the team at Hunter Massage Co.
