Good Massage - About Us

Deep Tissue / Sports Massage Specialist

Good Massage Owner Jason MacDonald has an absolute love of adventure and the great outdoors both for enjoyment and occupation. In a life prior to massage Jason was, for short periods a diving instructor on the Great Barrier Reef, a rafting and abseiling instructor and even drove 35 ton mining trucks underground in the Outback.

Jason has been a keen tramper for more than 20yrs with adventures from the English Lake District and Northern Wales to Israel and Malaysia or Wisconsin and Tasmania. Jason is a born and bred South Islander, often at his happiest rambling the mountains around Arthurs or Lewis Pass.



In February 2013 Jason and four friends crewed a 42 foot yacht across the Tasman Sea from Hobart, Australia to Nelson, New Zealand.



Over the years Jason has also dabbled in white water kayaking, mountain biking/cycling ( Le Race 2007/08, Around Brunner 2008) and running (completed the 67km Kepler Challenge... in the distant past and the Croesus Crossing mountain run 2010 )


What all this means for YOU? What ever your activity or occupation, Jason will have a pretty good idea of exactly what physical demands or stress's YOU are placing on your muscles from personal experience. Understanding with a first-hand intimate knowledge of what your body and muscles are going through can be critical to treating and helping YOU to make the best possible recovery and outcome.


Jason has a Diploma in Massage Therapy from the widely respected Canterbury College of Natural Medicine in Christchurch, New Zealand and has enjoyed being in practice for more than 14 years.
