Ali Saoirse – Ripple Massage
Who is Ali?
If you sign up for our newsletters, or read the stories on this site, you might be asking who Ali is.
So here is a face behind the name.
I live on Tamborine Mountain, with two beautiful sons, Luke and Jack.
Ripple was a glimmer in my eye for a couple of years before I started it up here in 2005. Just me, one therapist on a mountain.
Because I have been extraordinarily lucky and met some amazing people along the way, it has grown pretty quickly.
But the reasons for me starting it, to have a balance between my work and life and to satisfy my need to make other people happy, are still the same.
Oh and a few people have asked if we are a franchise or run by a big multi national company?
Nope, Ripple is wholly owned by me but is run by a group of amazing women and men who love what we do.
I’m mostly the chick who does the email newsletters and gets to decide where we open next. The super women and men in Ripple (our therapists, booking ladies and regional reps) are the ones who make it all run smoothly.
Or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
p.s I was formally Ali Shaw, but decided to change my name to Ali Saoirse (means freedom in Irish Gaellic)
Ali and Ripple Massage have been members of the Australian Association of Massage Therapists for ten years
Ali is also a member of most tourism organizations across Australia and is currently finishing post graduate studies in Psychology at Bond University
Our Favourite Quote
A customer is the most important visitor on our premises.
They are not dependent on us. We are dependent on them.
They are not an interruption of our work. They are the purpose of it.
They are not an outsider to our business. They are a part of it.
We are not doing them a favor by serving them.
They are doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.
– Mahatma Gandhi
