Robert Vicary's knowledge of human anatomy is truly extensive, and his massage and reflexology techniques are unique and exceedingly effective.
But perhaps most importantly, Robert treats the person in a complete and holistic way that is steeped in respect and genuine compassion.
Body, mind and spirit are given equal care, as therapist and client work in partnership towards physical harmony and inner peace. Over the last 3 months I have noticed an enormous improvement in my physical and spiritual wellbeing - with significantly decreased pain and increased flexibility, stability and a more positive outlook on life.
Robert is a gifted healer, and I am grateful for his generous sharing of that gift with me and with the world.
I decided a haiku best described my feelings...
bones - muscles - ligaments
pain holds body to ransom
soothing hands prevail
stretched out frozen limbs
slow massage opening thoughts
blood supplies healing
Robert's remedial massage addressed the whole body and he carefully explained every aspect of his treatment. "Alive" is certainly the word to describe the experience. I felt immediate relief, but realised that because of the deep seated nature of the problem I would benefit from further treatments.
Robert has a truly professional approach which engenders confidence in his strengths. It is most evident that he genuinely takes a serious interest in his client's holistic health and wellbeing, continuing to seek knowledge which gives him a greater understanding of the human body.
After putting up with pain from my lower back and a shoulder injury for the better part of a year, I finally decided to visit Robert. Following the massage was the most "free" my movements had been for over a year and all without pain. It is an absolute relief to stop thinking about pain and get on with living.
I had been suffering the effects of stress from work and life threatening family issues. This resulted in a severe weight gain which caused strain on my posture, health and emotional state of mind. After the first treatment with Robert I felt great, the best I have felt for a long time. I felt a new HOPE was possible and that I had the power from within to change the direction of MY Life. With sincere thanks...

For years I have suffered excruciating back pain (muscular) following a severe motorcycle accident and subsequent surgeries. Normally, I would just grin and bear it, until I found Robert. I can't really describe what it is that Robert does, just that I have MUCH less pain and feel better in myself. I would say that if you're feeling stressed or are experiencing pain... see Robert. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Gordon, The Gap
Robert's remedial massage treatments started with loosening up tight muscles with an instantaneous reduction of pain in my neck and lower back. He takes the time to explain how energy flows around your body and helps you to connect this treatment with long lasting effects on overall fitness, outlook on life and relationships with others. Robert's treatments have seen my posture improve radically and given me a greater sense of my place in the world.
Doug, Red Hill
A treatment from Alive Radiant Therapies can change your direction in life! One day after the treatment I feel the best I have ever felt. Don't suffer with pain or stress... make an appointment with Robert - you won't regret it.
I was suffering form acute lumbar pain from previous surgery and financial stress. In addition to attending the Wesley Pain Clinic, Robert assisted me in relating my Stress to the tightness in my back and legs. I gain self confidence to start a complete renewal of the way I view life, execrise, gym work, yoga and my attitudes.

After our afternoon session I felt compelled to rest. I fell into a deep peaceful sleep and woke feeling blissful.
This morning I slept in until 8.30 AM and I never sleep in. What a miracle. I woke feeling whole and at peace with all of who I Am. During my daily meditation, the question appeared, "What is my Divine Purpose and what steps can I take now that will help me fulfill this Purpose?"
Today I fully committed myself to just Being instead of doing. I am great at tasking; my Ego loves to distract me from all of who I Am. I Am a Being inside of a physical vessel. A Being of Divine Light and Divine Love. I cannot remember the last time I gave myself permission to Be and not do. I started to remember all that I Am. I Am Love. My fears and insecurities (Ego) have no place here. In this state of Being I am liberated.

For a holistic approach to your wellness and to soothe aches and pains I couldn't recommend Robert highly enough. His explanation of how the body holds stresses in the future and past sides of your body were very interesting to me. I liked understanding what was being worked on and why.
Kerry, Melbourne, Yoga Practitioner
I would recommend a treatment from Robert to those who have been feeling stressed, stiff or in need of a little TLC. Robert is able to locate areas of the body that are in need of adjustment and having Robert hold that part of your body – you can feel it relax and release the tension, quite amazing. Robert's treatments wake my body and makes me feel so relaxed and fresh. Thank you Robert I'm looking forward to booking my next treatment with you!!!
I was putting off going for a treatment with Robert because I thought "I had too many things to do."
But one day I realised and felt the effect of hard work, fatigue and grief in my body. My body valued the language, the explanations and expertise Robert used to show me how I could let go of old thought patterns, pains and hurts that I no longer needed to carry around. My Body and My Mind and My Spirit felt relief.
I have referred many friends and clients to Robert Vicary, because Humanity needs support in this demanding, complex and accelerated time of change in the world. With Robert's help, I feel assured in my transition from fearful selfish head space to a loving, co-operative heart-felt peace. I have more self-belief and feel more OK Being Me.
I don't know how to explain it - you just have to try it. It's amazing and it works!
You made a life changing difference. Back pain had troubled me for years. Knowing the pain is no longer there means I have more confidence about movement.
It has also had a definite positive impact on my outlook on life. I'm more positive, confident and courageous.
Thank you very much again for my Remedial Massage. I am still feeling on top of the world and am planning on booking another appointment very soon. I feel so much happier and peaceful within myself. I definitely have a more positive outlook on life.
I went in thinking I was going to have a remedial massage to help my sore back and calf muscle, which usually equals walking out feeling bruised and battered. But I walked out feeling amazing. 10 years younger and read to take on the world. No pain, just felt lighter, more flexible and relaxed. Thankyou Robert.
Lucy, South Brisbane
Robert's calm and soothing personal approach combined with his amazing healing hands made me feel instantly relieved of the burden of pain i had been carrying. I left feeling that my body was back in tune. I felt immediately a bit better and then continued to improve slowly over the next few days.
I first came to see you with a great need to to give me some relief from my sore NANNA arms.
One day after the session , which was very intense and fascinating , I felt very empty in my head and body and muddled in my thoughts , so much to think about. Within three days I had a massive clearing in my whole body and with such clarity it was fantastic. I honestly felt I had the weight lifted of my shoulders and I didn't have to constantly support everyone, hence the very sore arms and shoulders.
If you feel blocked at cross roads or think you have no further to go in your life then please be loving to yourself and go and have an experience with Robert . It will be the best time and money you would have spent. He honestly is one of Gods great healers x Thank You Robert.
I had a lot of stiffness and pain in my back as a result of underlying stress that hadn't been dealt with. Throughout the session Rob helped me get a huge amount of clarity on my own purpose and mission. I also got to a place where I could give myself permission to let go of what had been holding me back for many years.
One day after the session I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders, like something I'd been carrying around that had been limiting me was now gone. I felt a feeling of calm, peace, freedom, lightness and excited anticipation for my future.Three days after my session, the impact was still at the forefront of my mind. Rob's ability to read and understand my physiology and psychology was incredible. My physical body could still feel the huge reduction in stress and emotionally I had a sense of contentment and calmness.
I would recommend that everyone pay a visit to Rob Vicary. He has enabled me to feel benefits on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. He has an ability to relax your body to a cellular level and provoke your mind and spirit to see the greatness that lies within you. This is life changing! Give yourself the gift and book yourself or a loved one a session with Rob.
"I don't think I've ever had - nor will have a more profound experience through massage after the treatments I had with you and from the bottom of my heart I wanted to thankyou for the work you do. Life for me was amazing since my trip to Australia - I awakened something inside of me that has meant I view the world and people differently and saw this most evidenced at work when people saw such an amazing shift. It's just such a pity you're on the opposite side of the world."
I loved everyone of my sessions and felt I have shifted my energies immensely . X x x
At 56, I presented to Robert with a very sore left hip where it was painful to climb up steps, walk or sit. Little did I know that the hip was just an excuse by the greater universe to unlock the healing potential I found within. Yes, my hip was healed but the greatest shift was in the energy and unbounded optimism and gratitude that I found within. The result: weight loss, renewed vigour, regained youthfulness and mental clarity. I am now feeling truly more “Alive” than I did at 40. PS. You have to laugh, I turned up for a remedial massage and the transformation seemed to start happening as soon as I was able to hobble up onto the massage table. Don’t wait till you are 56 before you step out and start your own transformation.
Evelyn, St John’s Wood.
Robert, I think your work has been truly extraordinary, you keep on working that magic for me please, very happy.
Jeannette of Gympie
I am 44 year old male based in Melbourne who competes in Ironman Triathlons (3.8K swim 180k ride, and a 42.2k run).
Despite the efforts of a physiotherapist and osteopath, I wasn’t feeling right after competing in Ironman Malaysia six months earlier. My back was sore and my body felt out of whack. Training for an Ironman event is stressful on the body. I train up to 25 hours a week and maintenance from talented practitioners is required to prevent injuries and ensure optimal performance.
After a recommendation from my sister, I visited Robert a few weeks before Ironman Melbourne. I found Robert’s methodology to be quite unique but the results were beyond my expectation. One session and I felt as good as new. My posture felt right and my energy levels returned. That one session two weeks prior to the race was all that was required to have me feeling my best on race day. Robert has a gift; his ability transcends text books and knowledge gained from typical practice. I’d recommend Robert to any athlete who wants to feel great and have his/her body primed to perform at its best.”
