About Scott

Scott Marzato, a homegrown Novocastrian, has spent 5 years in Sydney training with some of Australia’s best Sports Doctors, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Chiropractors and Nutritionists. Throughout this time Scott has treated many high profile athletes including Jarryd Hayne (NRL Star), Adam Goodes (Sydney Swans), Lance “Buddy” Franklin (Sydney Swans), Michael Hooper (Wallabies), Kurtley Beale (Wallabies), James Troisi (Socceroos), Mark Milligan (Socceroos), James Magnussen (Olympic swimmer), Melissa Wu (Olympic diver), Erik Van Dooren (Swiss Olympic swimmer) and Matthew Abood (Olympic swimmer).

Scott spent 5 seasons with the Sydney Swans as a Sports Trainer and Massage Therapist travelling with the team to their games all over Australia. Being the first point of call on the field, Scott assisted the players with their many injuries. Scott also provided the Sydney Swans players with maintenance massages through the week, to assist in keeping their bodies in good shape, helping them to cope with their intense training regime.

Throughout the 2010/11 A-league Season Scott provided maintenance massage to the Newcastle Jets. He also treated the Wallabies players in 2014 while they were training and playing in Sydney.

Now back in Newcastle Scott opened his own clinic in 2016. He and his competent team cover many travelling sports teams from different codes that travel here to play. NRL teams like Melbourne Storm, Penrith Panthers and Gold Coast Titans and A-League teams such as Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar are just a few that trust us for their soft tissue maintenance when playing in Newcastle.

Scott has a strong sports background playing representative Rugby Union for Newcastle, and was selected multiple times to play for NSW Country. More recently he played football and currently competes in triathlons and enjoys Pilates and yoga. Scott has suffered many different serious injuries throughout his sporting history and spent many hours in rehabilitation with one of Newcastle’s best physiotherapists. Scott’s many injuries lead him to pursue a career in sports remedial massage having realised he can remain connected to sports in a major way and with new motivation.

My main focus is:

Q. What are your core beliefs about wellness and health??

That to help reach your maximum health potential, you must not only eat healthily and exercise but look after the mind as well. Take time out of our busy lives to relax and enjoy yourself, everything in moderation. Healthy mind, body and soul.

Q. What key health lessons do you like to impart to patients??

To take time in the day to have a little stretch and move your joints around, many of us these days spend too many hours in certain postures that are not healthy for our bodies. Taking as little as a few minutes a couple of times a day can make a big difference! “To help reach your maximum health potential, you must not only eat healthily and exercise but look after the mind as well”

Q. What do you enjoy about your job??

Working with people and helping them achieve a level of health and happiness they desire.

Q. What are your extracurricular passions??

I love being fit and active so in my spare time I train and compete in Triathlon, ocean swims, ride mountain bikes, a little gym, pilates, yoga and love going to the beach. I am also passionate about spending time with my family and friends and working on my vintage muscle car. I love just about all sports but my main interests would be swimming, cycling, running, rugby union and league, football (soccer) and AFL.

About Rebecca

Rebecca spent most of her years in Tamworth NSW, before moving to the Hunter Valley with her family in 2012. She has always been interested in the human body, especially from a young age when she completed 12 years of Classical Ballet. In her later years, Rebecca has been heavily involved in Hockey, playing at club level and as a representative on several occasions for the Women’s Masters State Championships. She is also a dedicated runner, firstly on the road where she completed several marathons and more recently discovered the magic of the trails and ultra running, completing UTA50 earlier this year. 4 years ago the opportunity arose for Rebecca to complete her Diploma in Remedial Massage through Evolve College, and she was hooked on this as her new career direction.

Small changes make a big difference and it’s never too late to make those changes as it’s about education and forming good habits.Health is the best investment you can ever make – because without it we have nothing.

The most rewarding part of my job is helping people get out of pain and teaching them how to stay out of pain!

In my spare time I enjoy running, both recreationally and in events. Outside of running, I appreciate time with my family and our dog, Frankie.

About Nick

Nick was born and raised in Alice Springs. Upon finishing school in 1996 he headed to Newcastle, primarily to be closer to bigger races and stronger competition in his main sport of cycling. He spent the next 4 years following the racing scene around Australia, competing in everything from local club racing up to the National Road Series.

After many years of racing Nick decided it was time to concentrate more on University studies. During this break he took time to compete in various other sports, including AFL, golf and eventually running and triathlon.

In 2009, due to an ACL tear, Nick had his knee reconstructed. This recovery period gave him the opportunity to look at his career goals and eventually lead to the completion of his personal training degree. After a full recovery, Nick set about chasing many bucket list events including ironman, marathon, running, cycling and triathlon events. Eventually, Nick started his own coaching business aiming to assist triathletes, runners and cyclists to obtain the skills and confidence needed to not only compete in their first races, but achieve bigger goals as well.

During his time competing and as a coach, Nick was able to see firsthand the benefits of massage therapy, not only for athletes but people in general. Completing his Diploma of Remedial Massage, Nick can now enjoy assisting clients with general maintenance, aiding performance and injury prevention.

My main focus is:

Q.What are your core beliefs about wellness and health??

Q. What are your extracurricular passions??

Currently my main activities are all sport based and focussed on cycling, running and triathlon. However you can find me anywhere from a golf course, in the gym, a spartan race, squash courts or kicking a footy around the park.
