Remedial Massage

“I was first referred to Gerard O’Riley of Inner Health Solutions by a friend over 6 years ago. She spoke very highly of Gerard’s skills as a massage therapist and I soon discovered why. I have been receiving regular massages since and have referred others to Gerard also and they have joined the ranks of highly satisfied clients. Gerard is an extremely skilled and knowledgeable massage therapist able to respond to a range of health issues and presentations. He has a respectful and empowering manner. He is very generous with sharing his expertise and recommendations for practices to assist and strengthen one’s well being and maintain progress between sessions. Gerard’s holistic orientation is evident in his approach and manner. He is very flexible and responsive to arranging appointments across a range of times and days (including at short notice). His fees are very reasonable and includes offering concessions which is greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Gerard’s services and am very appreciative to have him as a health practitioner.” Deborah A (Ormond)

“Gerard at Inner Health Solutions is a true find, and one of THE BEST remedial therapists I have been to. There is nothing he cant fix. A master at head, neck, shoulders, back. I have been going to him for a couple of years now, and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Incredibly professional, very knowledgeable, and genuinely cares about the wellbeing of his clients. Very focussed on preventative techniques, whether its suggesting exercises to stretch or strengthen, relaxation techniques or complementary types of exercise. Genuine, trustworthy and incredibly good at what he does I highly recommend him!” Carolyn McConachy

“I recently injured my elbow playing tennis and went to Inner Health Solutions for help. This was my first experience with massage. The therapeutic massage helped me keep playing and my elbow was pain free after three sessions. The overall benefits of a regular massage have been great and I keep asking myself “Why didn’t I start this years ago?” Jane Ortiz, Principal Coach, Ortiz Consulting Services, Melbourne, Victoria.  

“Gerard O’Riley, Principal Remedial Therapist at Inner Health Solutions, true interest in his clients and honest advice makes me highly impressed. That is the reason I recommend him as the best pain therapist I know without doubt.” Manoj Madaan, Chadstone.   

Corporate Health & Fitness

“Inner Health Solutions was invited to conduct Health Seminars on the benefits of ancient exercise practices for corporate health. The Seminars proved to be extremely successful and as a result of these, Inner Health Solutions was asked to conduct hourly Chi Gong classes on a weekly basis for employees. The classes were always well organised, structured, and extremely professional. Staff were consistently assisted and instructions were always very thorough and clear. I would not hesitate in recommending Inner Health Solutions for any future work in the corporate health arena.”

Anna Kapentanios, Training Co-ordinator, Human Resources Dept, Remunerator (Aust) Pty Ltd, Burke Rd, Camberwell, Vic.

“Inner Health Solutions has been conducting Corporate Massages in our office for the past three years and it is something that our staff look forward to each time.

The seated massages are very relaxing and Gerard also gives the staff valuable tips on posture along with exercises and stretches to do during the day. The staff here are all waiting for his next visit!”

Matthew Fijalkowski, Chief Information Officer, Remunerator Aust Pty Ltd.

“For the past 6 years, I have trained in a traditional martial art, under the guidance and tuition of Instructor Gerard O’Riley, Proprietor of Inner Health Solutions. Personally speaking, there are far too many benefits to mention in terms of my own personal journey, other than to say it has been one of empowerment, a vehicle for good health and a means of self expression. Gerard is a generous teacher, delivering his knowledge and instruction with great insight, compassion and most importantly to the tradition of this ancient art form.” Nicholas Tomaras, Premium Account Executive, Sensis Pty Ltd, Melbourne, Victoria.     

Chi Gong

 “I trained in Chi Gong exercises with Inner Health Solutions and for the last 2 years I have practiced Chi Gong almost every day. The routine is a gentle series of movements that have substantially improved my general health and well-being. My breathing has also improved along with my endurance and muscle strength, particularly in my legs, arms and shoulders. It has greatly improved my immune system as I haven’t caught a cold or flu for the past 12 months. It is well and truly worth the effort.” John E. of Beaumauris, Melbourne, 71 year old retired bank manager.      

School Programs

I highly recommend Inner Health Solutions who are able to provide something a little different for the innovative Physical  Education curriculum. Their proprietor, Gerard O’Riley is a responsible, professional instructor who was able to share his interest in holistic healing with the students in a most interesting and enlightening manner. The student response to the classes was always positive and they found the information shared to be very useful in their everyday lives.”  Ms. A. O’Shea, Head of Health & Physical Education, Loreto Mandeville Hall, Catholic School for Girls, Toorak, Victoria.

“What has impressed me most about the type of massage that Inner Health Solutions does is that, although based on a tradition and ancient art, it is most relevant to our students. The massage is conducted with students fully clothed, sitting on a chair, a position they find themselves in for the majority of the school day. Because of this, the students are learning techniques that allow them to relax, both physically and mentally, and relieve the stress associated  with long periods of sitting. These are practices and techniques the students will be able to carry with them for the remainder of their lives.”  Mr. M. Nelson, Head of Physical Education, Methodist Ladies’ College, Kew, Melbourne, Victoria.

St. Michael’s Grammar is a co-educational, Anglican School, inner city, Melbourne. We strive to be innovative and creative and to challenge young minds. The key values of diversity, innovation, individuality, inclusivity and uniqueness, are instilled in our curriculum and they are values which set us apart. Gerard O’Riley of Inner Health Solutions has been working with us for two years on the Massage Component of our Year 10 Physical Education Unit which meets all of these values and has been one of the most beneficial and rewarding additions to our Physical Education Program. Gerard provides a safe and calm environment in which the students enjoy this unique lesson. The success of the program is its diverse nature as well as its delivery. In addition to our Year 10 Program we have also used Gerard’s Inner Health Solutions Massage services on Staff Work Days. he has provided much needed seated massage for our staff! I have no hesitation in recommending Gerard and his teaching services to support any aspect of schools Physical Education & Health Program.” Ms. Emma Jackowski, Head of Health & Physical Education, St Michal’s Grammar School, Chapel Street, St Kilda, Victoria.

Gerard O’Riley of Inner Health Solutions began to teach Traditional Martial Arts here at Geelong Grammer School because he had inspired one year eleven student in the art who asked if we could start the activity here. When it started there were about three devotees and each term this number grew. For term three, there were 15 students keen to continue in the art  form. I have been impressed with Gerard’s patience and enthusiasm for what he does and he seems to instill an air of calm to some of our troubled students.” Mr. E. Vahl Meyer, Teacher of  “Activities”, Geelong Grammer School, Geelong, Victoria.
