Sometimes bringing together elements that at first glance seem unlikely to come along nicely produces great outcomes. Take for instance a delicious Hawaiian pizza… ok ok that was a long shot. But think about Alison Kraus with her blue-grass country-style sound and Robert Plant with his unique voice in their Grammy award-winning album Raising Sand, or Simba, Timon and Pumbaa, or curiosity, massage therapy and music!
Rani and Phil met each other five years ago working together in a remedial massage clinic located in South Bank. Their work chemistry was very good from the beginning and it didn’t take them too long to start ideating a project together.
Rani attributes growing up in a country town, her passion for music, her mother working in aged care and her father being a nurse to her ability to make and grow connections with her community. Also, Rani’s unique skillset gives her an edge that few massage therapists have. Prior to gaining her diploma as a remedial massage therapist, Rani worked as an archaeological consultant which provided her with the understanding of addressing health and wellbeing needs in local communities.
Phil on the other hand brings to the table a vast array of strengths. He plays the guitar and was part of a local music band. He has a grown passion for developing businesses in the health care sector and he also enjoys combining technology, digital platforms and actionable design to connect businesses with their community. On top of these skills, Phil is also a massage therapist and myotherapist. He sees curiosity expressed through questions as the cornerstone for understanding the challenges that a body in distress can bring to his patients.
There was something that Rani and Phil realised pretty quickly when they first met and that was a shared history as musicians and songwriters. Music was a key element, the connector that brought together their skills and narrative. Harmony, teamwork and synchrony made them bring to fruition a new business in Brunswick that mixes powerful elements to support the local community.
