“Wonderful relief from neck and shoulder pain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

I only had 4 days in Port Douglas and was not sure if I would have a massage or not, but then started talking to some other guests who had both had a session with Jane and they told me to make sure I did because they thought she was wonderful. So I did, and boy were they right. This was only the second massage I have ever had and Jane made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. She practises her skill in a calm and confident manner, with amazing results. The burning sensation at the base of my skull disappeared and my head, neck and shoulders felt tension-less for the first time in months. Thank you Jane!

“5 star quality massage without the pricetag”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

My wife and I stayed in Port Douglas for a week in July 2013. During this time, I had a badly sprained ankle so I had four massages in total in Port Douglas. After my first massage at a different place that was below par, I found Jane at Shantara Day Spa. I'm so glad I did!

I ended up having 3 massages with Jane during the week and now that I'm back in Melbourne, I wish she was closer.

Her massages are brilliant. She really listens to the body and finds all the tension points to provide a great amount of relief. She has a great personality and by far the best Masseur in Port Douglas. I have no hesitation in recommending her. Cheers, Jarrod.
