Catherine McInerney is a pioneering figure in the field of specialised pregnancy, labour, and postnatal massage techniques in Australia. With over 25 years of experience in Women's Health Massage, she is the Founding Director of Pregnancy Massage Australia® established by Catherine in 2010.
Her vision is to establish massage as an essential component of perinatal care, emphasising the natural and comprehensive approach of the NurtureLife® massage experience, which offers a unique focus on support and therapeutic care.
Throughout her career, Catherine's dedication to expanding her knowledge and expertise has led her to study the therapeutic benefits of massage during pregnancy internationally.
A strong advocate for research in prenatal massage, Catherine has contributed to multiple publications and is committed to furthering research programs, particularly in the perinatal period. Her expertise has led her to present at both international and national conferences and expos.
Catherine's passion for education has extended to training thousands of massage therapists from across Australia and the Asia Pacific region in her signature NurtureLife® method. This method focuses on supporting women through pregnancy, labour, and the postnatal period with an emphasis on health and wellbeing.
Catherine has also written extensively for industry journals and media publications.
Previously, as the owner and director of her own College of Massage Therapy, she delivered Nationally Accredited Training Programs, earning respect from her peers and associates in the industry.
