“Balancing full-time work with the demands of semi-professional football can certainly be a challenging and time consuming task, where the importance of recovery can sometimes be overlooked. The physical demands of SANFL football are quite significant, and there isn’t often a week where I don’t finish a game without some kind of ‘niggle’ or ‘knock.’ Fortunately for me, the b3 team are located just a few doors down from my office and offer a great range of services that can be accessed and booked through the “Mind Body” app. This enabled me to log in and quickly find a time in my busy schedule to get the treatment necessary to enable me to continue to perform at my best throughout the season. Jackie and Jana are both extremely professional, provide a great massage service, and will continue to be a valuable resource to keep me performing at my best. 2016 was the first season in which I didn’t miss a game due to injury, and I think they played a big part in this.”
Mark Evans, 25, Management Consultant (KPMG)
“ I started going to B3 Massage and Movement a year or so ago to help with preparation and recovery for trail running events. Jackie and Jana’s massage techniques really helped me achieve my best out on the track. Their studio has such a relaxing atmosphere, it is a great space to wind down so Jackie and Jana can really get in and loosen up those sore / tight spots.
I recently took advantage of their rewards program and used my points towards a 2 week intro class pack. I have trailed a few of the Hatha Yoga classes and they have been stunning. The classes have really helped to stretch out my legs and improve mobility in my back. Janas teaching and soothing voice is so calming, admittedly I was so relaxed after a session I almost fell up the stairs at work shortly after J
I have also had a crack at a TRX class recently. It was a great whole body work out and Jackie teachings really helped me to queue in all the parts of my body to ensure everything was engaged and that I used correct technique. I have since used this queuing in work outs I have done outside of the B3 studio.
I highly recommend B3 Massage and Movement to anyone wanting to get the best out of their body or looking for a relaxed, friendly environment to pamper the body and mind.”
Tanya Schneyder, 35, Environment Officer
“B3 massage and movement take care of everything – they help me build and maintain strength and agility, and help heal me when I’m broken. If you want it, they’ll always offer just the right amount of wise advice too – they’re never pushy. And when I’ve let things slide, they help get me back on track without judging me.”
“I’ve been combining yoga and massages for nearly a year now and my body and mind has never been in better shape! I really enjoy the diversity of poses and postures in Hatha yoga. Jana teaches us something new each class, and let’s us know the benefits of each posture. After class I’m always energised and ready to face my busy day.”

“I can’t thank Jackie enough for her treatment during the Fringe Festival. I had a crook back and some other small issues and she sorted them all out within a couple of sessions. The studio and staff are very welcoming and extremely professional. Its difficult to find a masseuse with her expertise when on the road, but Jackie contacted me knowing we where in town for fringe and kindly offered her services. Thanks Jackie 🙂 ”
Cal Harris, Head First Acrobatics
“When we are not swimming, cycling, running or in the gym (and pole dancing for Jenn), we spend most hours of the day sitting in front of our computers. The combination of the job and hobby leaves our body in a constant state of muscle tightness and imbalances. This is where Jackie and Jana play a big part in keeping our body align with our athletic goals.
We’ve been going to BodyFirst Massage, and now B3 Massage and Movement for more than 4 years. Both ladies are very professional and skillful, their knowledge of massage techniques and how the body works is second to none. You might feel discomfort during the treatment, but it feels a million times better after the muscles have been released and realigned.
After every massage, we noticed an improvement in our mobility, muscle balance, flexibility, recovery times, and also overall wellness. This is crucial in prolonging the state of our body & mind. We both highly recommend B3 to any athlete who is looking for an edge in body maintenance.”

“I have been a regular client of Jackie for quite some time and to say I rate her highly would be an understatement. My full-time profession is coaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). It’s a rather unique occupation but also a very physical one and this means that any ethical method of enhancing recovery is something I greatly appreciate. Having also served as Strength & ConditioningCoach to numerous elite athletes over the last 20 years it is in both of these capacities that I highly recommend Jackie’s services to my athletes and to anyone else who may be looking for a brilliant Remedial Massage Therapist.”

“I have been seeing Jana as a massage therapist for several years. She has helped me with work-related neck pain and also an ongoing running injury. Jana always takes time to listen and assess how I’m feeling, taking note of any problem areas and then designing a session that suits my needs. I have found Jana to be professional and knowledge and she is genuinely interested in the health and well being of her clients.”
“I have been attending b3 massage and movement for remedial massage therapy for several years. Jackie is knowledgeable and supportive. Because of her I have run 5 marathons and 43 half marathons and done all the in between training.
I have been injured many times along the way and Jackie works in close consultation with my physio when that occurs. My physio thinks she’s pretty clever! ( and so do I!)”
Bette Bradtke, 66, Business Owner, Bradtke Consulting
“b3 massage and movement has been a critical component of my training plan for many years now. Jackie tailors each massage to my requirements at the time allowing me to manage extended periods of high mileage training which has led to me being able to achieve my racing goals. The advice b3 are able to provide on how to manage my body between massages has also been extremely valuable. I highly recommend including b3 massage and movement in your training plan.”
“ I’ve been going to see Jackie at B3 for longer than I can even remember. Considering my own, personal disregard for doing the right thing by my body, I absolutely rely on her to keep it working against the odds, so I can continue to do the stupid things I like to do so much. I’ve genuinely lost count of the specific things she’s helped me through, but there’s been everything from ankle, leg, hip, back and neck injuries as i’ve hiked, climbed, run, tripped, fallen and crashed my way around the world. I’m honestly not sure where I’d be without her. Or more to the point, I AM sure where I wouldn’t have been. Which is half the places I made it with her help. Not only is she amazing at what she does, she happens to be a damn fine person as well. The only reason I wouldn’t recommend her more highly is because I’d hate for so many people to go see her that I can no longer get in when I need to.”
“Finding b3 massage and movement has been a life saver and I can’t recommend them highly enough. If you want intelligent, caring, dedicated, highly skilled and capable treatment, massage and movement classes, look no further.
My only regret is not going more often.”
“ I have been visiting Jackie and Jana for several years now and have always found their service very professional and skilled. As my running has progressed from the 10km fun run to 100km ultra marathons, Jana’s massage sessions have been an integral part of my recovery program. She has identified weak areas that need strengthening and recommended useful exercises to help balance out the body. She also finds those painful tight spots that come from hard training weeks that make you look forward to a massage and a chat! Jana’s foam roller videos are a really good tool I use during my stretching sessions at home, it helps to keep the recovery process consistent. “
Bronwyn, 40, Bookkeeper/Trail Runner
“I’ve been on the receiving end of a Jackie massage for many years now.
What was monthly in the beginning with Jackie is now fortnightly, alternately with Jackie and Jana. I am a reasonably active now 62 year old.
Regular massage has helped me with my running in particular and with my general well being. Thanks very much both girls”
Chris Brougham, 62, Executive Chairman, Des’s Cabs Pty Ltd
“I’ve been seeing Jackie at B3 massage and movement for remedial massages since I began training for my first marathon. My treatments have been an important part of my training plan and ensuring that I get to the start line injury free and in the best shape possible. After my races I’m then straight back to Jackie who is a key part of my recovery and this helps me to get straight back into training. With Jackie’s assistance I’m now training for my 9th marathon and have also completed a number of ultras.
Jackie is a lovely person who makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. Every visit is tailored to target specific sore, tight or weak spots. She has hands and elbows that will release the tension in any muscle that is affecting your training or everyday activities. After your treatment you’ll leave B3 massage and movement feeling relaxed and stress free. Tips and advice on how to continue self-treatment at home using stretches, foam rollers or spikey balls is also freely given and helps to further extend the benefits of the massage given. I’ve been seeing Jackie for massages for 4 years and that should be enough evidence to show that I truly benefit from the quality treatments that Jackie provides.”
“Remedial massages coupled with individually tailored tips about stretches and posture have been such a help for my chronic neck and back pain. Jackie has such a warm, helpful, non-judgmental approach which has encouraged me to maintain lifestyle changes that I had not previously sustained when accessing other massage/physiotherapy services. I have unreservedly recommended Jackie to others with chronic pain and will continue to do so.”
If you work or live in the Adelaide CBD and want a great massage therapist, b3 is the way to go. I’ve just ran my first marathon, with the regular massages and stretching advice I received from b3 being a major factor in my training preparation and recovery throughout the year.
“Jackie and Jana have been fantastic for my wellbeing ever since I started coming to B3. Fast bowling is something that puts incredible stress on your body and the girls have been fantastic at either helping manage a particular niggle or just keep everything going smoothly. They are extremely professional in all that they do, and they take a personal approach to your individual management. Being able to book quickly on-line is handy if something unforeseen comes up and working in the city means they are easy to get to at anytime. I’d highly recommend for anyone involved in any kind of sport or indeed if you’re sitting down in the office all day.”
Elliot Opie, Associate Adviser
“I started coming in to see Jackie at B3 as my training program ramped up for the 2016 New York marathon. After my first visit I realised I had made a good choice, Jackie really knows her stuff and as vague as my directions were, she knew exactly where my body was tight and what needed work. My fortnightly massage soon became a crucial component of my training.
I had previously considered massage/physio as something I may need to do if I was injured or something wasn’t right. I quickly learned that regular visits to B3 were actually allowing me to complete my long runs more freely. I was using my massages to set me up for my long runs, but also to help me recover after I had scheduled a hard run.
I am certain that the assistance from Jackie made all the difference and ensured I completed my 20 week training program and marathon injury free.
New York was my 10th marathon – I just wish I had known about the great work that B3 do when I started out my running all those years ago!
I have since become aware of the great reputation that Jackie and the team at B3 have amongst the running community in Adelaide and can’t recommend them highly enough “
Rob Nelson – 45yo – Head of Operations, BankSA
“The team at b3 are highly knowledgeable at what they do. I would highly recommend the massage services to anyone looking for a professional massage therapist within a relaxing and tranquil environment.“
“The therapists have a great passion and deep knowledge of body mechanics and therapy solutions for injuries. They have helped me rehab back to run a half marathon and also contributed to easing my migraines and back problems from office work. I always feel like I’ve done my body a favour after a visit to B3.
Georgia Bradtke, Occupational Therapist/Runner
I am in my 50s and am a physically active person. But some things just weren’t quite right and this led me to B3.
Firstly, before starting with B3 I was really disappointed with my biomechanics. I had difficulty maintaining weight. I had chronic pain due to poor posture and poor core strength and this was preventing me from maintaining my previous running routine. I was feeling stressed out about my physical form. For four years I had adhered well to programs at other Pilates or OT clinics but was disappointed to have no positive transferable gain.
Secondly, B3 ticked all the boxes – having on offer stretch therapy, massage, movement, and yoga. Their attention to ongoing professional development is noted. Their location in the CBD was perfect and the initial consult inspired me with confidence.
B3 staff maintain their awareness of my specific yet ever-changing needs. This is a very important point. Every week they continue to progress me. They haven’t let me tread water; their program delivery (including a home program) has been constantly tailored to ensure my success. They actively and effectively apply new skills from PD and have effectively accommodated my recent diagnosis of osteoporosis, maintaining significant ongoing progress for me.
Staff passion, professionalism, persistence, tenacity, attention to detail and problem solving are apparent during every session. Whenever they observe that I have poor form or an additional need it is noticed, noted and worked on in a patient and persistent manner over time and all gains are celebrated in a way that respects and encourages me.
Since working with B3 I have reached my initial goals – effective and efficient stair climb biomechanics, return to my previous running schedule (5k 3 times a week), weight gain and I am seriously progressed with scapular stability – no mean feat! My biomechanics, my posture, my strength and execution of day-to-day tasks have all gone ahead in leaps and bounds. Every week I am pleased to note additional gains in strength and agility both within my sessions and in my day-to-day experience.
