Graduate Testimonials



The Diploma of Remedial Massage at Demi International is the most well-rounded, engaging and practical courses I have ever had the pleasure of completing. I knew from a young age that I always wanted to complete a massage course, yet I had no idea it was going to be remedial. Not only am I now more knowledgeable on the anatomy of the body and how muscles function, but this course has also given me a range of different techniques to treat a variety of different muscles and conditions. I highly recommend completing this course.


Morgan Harris

I have always wanted a career in sports medicine I just didn’t know where to start. Demi International helped me to get my foot in the door, by enrolling in the Certificate of Massage therapy that they offer. After falling in love with the concept I progressed and continued on to do the Diploma of Remedial Massage through Demi also. My teacher Seonaid Boyle was encouraging, supportive and always positive throughout my entire journey. I am certain I wouldn’t have found something I love to do as much as Remedial Massage without her help and the Directors of Demi International. If you are wanting to do something fun, active and rewarding I absolutely recommend this course, you will not be disappointed.

Debbie Lindsay

Gold Coast Campus

As a qualified trainer, she enjoys assisting and supporting students wanting to learn and excel in their chosen vocation. She believes life is for living, and learning is just the process that helps to maximise that potential.

Her teaching background is vast due to her ongoing formal tertiary study and her life learning experiences. As students often like to know where work life is taking them, she also offers guidance on how they can build on their learnt skills and maximise their future work potential.

She holds numerous qualifications:

  • Bachelor of Education in Adult education, University of Sydney.
  • Diploma of Remedial Massage, Australian Institute of Fitness.
  • Cert IV Master Personal Trainer, Australian Institute of Fitness.
  • Nutrition Coaching, Australian Institute of Fitness.
  • Myofascial Cupping, level 1, Q Academy.
  • Myofascial Movement Screening, level 2, Fitness Australia

She is a member of two associations, AUSactive (Fitness Australia) and Australian Natural Therapists ANTA.

Her work experience has led to many different avenues within the workforce: starting with being a qualified hairdresser, a hair and beauty salon business owner, a trainer and assessor at TAFE, a business development coach, a personal trainer and a remedial massage therapist within a physiotherapist practice and a high-end luxury day spa.

Debbie also knows full well the issues around setbacks, injuries, and pain. Early in 2022, she fell, broke her ankle, and became restricted in many aspects of her work and typical day-to-day life.

This in turn made her more empathic towards pain, rehabilitation, the mental processes of regaining movement pre- and post-surgeries, and the need to refocus on many aspects of life that can no longer be and therefore the need to refocus on what can be achieved.

In addition, Debbie is a loving mother, an animal lover, and a keen beachgoer. She was a regular surfer up until her injury and now enjoys hiking, swimming, the gym, and a good social outing.
