About Scott

Scott Marzato, a homegrown Novocastrian, has spent 5 years in Sydney training with some of Australia’s best Sports Doctors, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Chiropractors and Nutritionists. Throughout this time Scott has treated many high profile athletes including Jarryd Hayne (NRL Star), Adam Goodes (Sydney Swans), Lance “Buddy” Franklin (Sydney Swans), Michael Hooper (Wallabies), Kurtley Beale (Wallabies), James Troisi (Socceroos), Mark Milligan (Socceroos), James Magnussen (Olympic swimmer), Melissa Wu (Olympic diver), Erik Van Dooren (Swiss Olympic swimmer) and Matthew Abood (Olympic swimmer).

Scott spent 5 seasons with the Sydney Swans as a Sports Trainer and Massage Therapist travelling with the team to their games all over Australia. Being the first point of call on the field, Scott assisted the players with their many injuries. Scott also provided the Sydney Swans players with maintenance massages through the week, to assist in keeping their bodies in good shape, helping them to cope with their intense training regime.

Throughout the 2010/11 A-league Season Scott provided maintenance massage to the Newcastle Jets. He also treated the Wallabies players in 2014 while they were training and playing in Sydney.

Now back in Newcastle Scott opened his own clinic in 2016. He and his competent team cover many travelling sports teams from different codes that travel here to play. NRL teams like Melbourne Storm, Penrith Panthers and Gold Coast Titans and A-League teams such as Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar are just a few that trust us for their soft tissue maintenance when playing in Newcastle.

Scott has a strong sports background playing representative Rugby Union for Newcastle, and was selected multiple times to play for NSW Country. More recently he played football and currently competes in triathlons and enjoys Pilates and yoga. Scott has suffered many different serious injuries throughout his sporting history and spent many hours in rehabilitation with one of Newcastle’s best physiotherapists. Scott’s many injuries lead him to pursue a career in sports remedial massage having realised he can remain connected to sports in a major way and with new motivation.

My main focus is:

That to help reach your maximum health potential, you must not only eat healthily and exercise but look after the mind as well. Take time out of our busy lives to relax and enjoy yourself, everything in moderation. Healthy mind, body and soul.
To take time in the day to have a little stretch and move your joints around, many of us these days spend too many hours in certain postures that are not healthy for our bodies. Taking as little as a few minutes a couple of times a day can make a big difference! “To help reach your maximum health potential, you must not only eat healthily and exercise but look after the mind as well” 
Working with people and helping them achieve a level of health and happiness they desire.
I love being fit and active so in my spare time I train and compete in Triathlon, ocean swims, ride mountain bikes, a little gym, pilates, yoga and love going to the beach. I am also passionate about spending time with my family and friends and working on my vintage muscle car. I love just about all sports but my main interests would be swimming, cycling, running, rugby union and league, football (soccer) and AFL.

About Tehjana

Born and raised in the Upper Hunter, Tehjana moved to Newcastle 5 years ago at the completion of her Higher School Certificate.

As an avid sports fan, Tehjana has always been interested in the treatment and rehabilitation of acute and chronic injuries. During her Diploma of Remedial Massage at TAFE, Tehjana worked in conjunction with the Newcastle Knights and the Newcastle Jets providing soft tissue therapy. Since completing her degree, Tehjana has continued to work with the Newcastle Jets as their Head Soft Tissue Therapist. She is now in her 4th season at the club.

Throughout her short career, Tehjana has had the opportunity to work with various athletes from both the NRL and the A-League. She has also worked as a part of the Massage Team for the Fijiian International NRL Squad for the 2016 Pacific Test.

My main focus is:

I believe in;

  • surrounding yourself with like minded, positive people as it breeds happiness and success
  • the importance of stretching
  • the cliche health is an investment not an expense
  • the importance of looking after your whole being. Mind, body and soul
It is necessary to reiterate the importance of nutrition, exercise, rest and hydration in maintaining optimal health and wellbeing
Personally, I am fascinated by the human body. I love that my job allows me to continually learn about the countless ways the body adapts and functions. Most importantly, my job allows me to help people; to feel as though I’ve made a difference in someone’s life, no matter how small. I am able to assist an individual in achieving their fitness/sporting goals, reduce chronic pain or simply provide a relaxing environment for those who need to de-stress and unwind.
I enjoy spending time with family, the gym and watching sport; if its possible to attend a fixture live, I’ll be there… beats watching it on TV!

About Amanda

From Martial Arts to kayak coaching, Amanda has always been involved in health and fitness: be it indoor strength training, the yoga studio or outside mountain biking. In 2005, she put her body to the test when she began teaching martial arts full time and running a gruelling cross country 48km race. Amanda sustained an injury which a year later stopped her midway through a marathon putting a grinding halt to her active life where she did not think she would be ever able to run again due to the recurring pain.

It took Amanda a gruelling 12 months of sports rehab massage and personal training to fully recover and it is here that her passion began to learn the amazing benefits of massage and how the body works.

Hungry to share this knowledge with others to prevent injury whilst living life to its fullest, Amanda left the UK in 2013 to study Fitness cert III and IV and the Diploma of Remedial Massage here in Australia. Amanda spent the last 5 years in Sydney teaching spin, bootcamps, personal training and providing Massage Therapy. Her clientele range from NRL players to TV celebrities in North Bondi with specialities including sports rehab, Tom Myers’ myofascial therapy, pregnancy and baby massage.

Since Amanda’s road to recovery is constantly improving she has happily ran the City to Surf, Sydney half marathon and 4 on and off-road Triathlons. Moving to Newcastle h seen Amanda take up a position as Secretary of the Newcastle Triathlon Club, she is excited to be joining the dynamic Elite Muscle Health team.

My main focus is:

Small changes make a big difference and it’s never too late to make those changes as it’s about education and forming good habits.

Health is the best investment you can ever make – because without it we have nothing.

Keep it regular for maintaining optimal performance – you don’t let your car run until it breaks down so why wait until your body is injured? We are high performance sports cars that need regular servicing – the more we do, the more we need: simple equation.
The most rewarding part of my job is helping people get out of pain and teaching them how to stay out of pain!
New healthy foods! I’m obsessed with nutrition and how it affects our wellbeing. Strength training, triathlons, yoga and meditation create the holistic health that nourishes body, mind and challenges self beliefs.
