About our Massage Therapy Team
Conveniently located in Castle Hill, Active Back Care was co-founded by husband-and-wife team Rod and Cherine Weiland, both chiropractors. When they decided to expand their practice to offer alternate forms of treatment, they assembled a team of qualified, experienced massage therapists.
Melissa Jerrow has been a valued member of the Active Back Care family for more than seven years. She has a wide range of massage skills – and provides expertise in remedial massage, sports injury massage and pregnancy massage. Nathan Sultana specializes in remedial and sports massage. Adam Kesik specializes in remedial & sports massage and is an ideal choice for those that prefer a gentler style of massage. Jo McKechnie specializes in remedial sports-related strains and injuries as well as pregnancy massage while Terri Hamamoto brings an eclectic mix of remedial, sports massage, cupping and hot stone massage.

Whether this is your very first massage or just your first time visiting our clinic, we want to ensure that you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare for your massage appointment at Active Back Care.
Plan to arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes before your massage is scheduled. You’ll be asked to fill out a personal history form before your first visit. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothes that will be comfortable to wear home and won’t be damaged by massage oils.
Before the massage, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with your therapist about your goals for the massage and any specific preferences, such as light or darkness in the treatment room, music or silence, and any scent allergies or aversions. Once the massage begins, your therapist will use a variety of techniques that may include stretching, kneading, gliding, friction, percussion, and myofascial release.
Throughout the process, your massage therapist will welcome your feedback.
At Active Back Care, it’s our mission to treat every client with consummate respect and courtesy. Each of our experienced massage therapists is a trained professional, gifted in giving sensitive and compassionate care.
Our Massage Techniques
You may already know which type of massage works best for you, but if not, we can help you find the treatment that will deliver the results you want. Choose from a variety of massage techniques offered by our skilled therapists at Active Back Care:
- Remedial massage: This technique works on large areas of the body to break up scar tissue, loosen tight muscles, and improve flexibility in connective tissue. The primary goals of this type of bodywork are to improve your range of mobility and alleviate pain.
- Therapeutic massage: Also known as deep tissue massage, therapeutic massage works on the deep muscle layers to relieve longstanding symptoms, such as sciatica and deep back or hip pain.
- Swedish massage: Also known as relaxation massage, Swedish is the most commonly known type of massage therapy. It may incorporate kneading, tapping, effleurage, friction, and vibration, but is a gentler and more relaxing technique in comparison to remedial or therapeutic massage.
- Sports massage: Sports massage is meant to stretch the body, improving your range of motion and boosting muscle metabolism, and its benefits will be felt by more than just professional athletes. It may involve stretching, kneading, joint mobilization, friction, compression, and trigger point manipulation.
- Trigger point massage: Trigger points are contraction knots in muscle, and are a common but undiagnosed source of pain throughout the body. Trigger point massage is one of the most effective ways to address myofascial trigger points in the muscles, relieving systemic pain and improving overall health.
- Pregnancy and postnatal massage: Pregnancy massage creates a feeling of relaxation and stimulates the release of natural pain-killing endorphins. It can also be used to improve balance and posture, alleviate discomfort, and relieve strain on the back, spine, hips, and legs.
At Active Back Care, we treat every client with consummate respect and courtesy. Each of our experienced massage therapists is a trained professional, gifted in giving sensitive and compassionate care.
Regardless of the technique we use to address your condition and symptoms, you will receive thorough, gentle, and dedicated attention from your massage therapist. We are not a “high-volume” facility and never rush our patients—we take as much time as necessary to make each patient feel comfortable.
