Donna Masing, DRM, Adv Dip Bus, ART full body provider accredited
The Clinical Director of GPT, Donna opened the clinic in 2015 from the Surfing Australia High Performance Centre, where she was predominately working with elite surfers. After 3 years of growth, it was time to expand the clinic and she moved operations to Kingscliff in 2018.
Part of the expansion was adding Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy to the clinic’s offerings. After suffering a traumatic brain injury herself, Donna began HBOT as treatment for her post concussion syndrome in California. After feeling the benefits, she invested into the first chamber on the Tweed Coast.
In 2019 Donna was awarded Outstanding Business Leader for the Northern Rivers Region from the NSW Business Chamber, and then went on to be a State Finalist for the same category.
Donna enjoys continuing to work with Australia’s top surfers while also offering her unique sports therapy approach to the general public. An avid waterwoman herself, Donna enjoys time in the ocean going surfing, freediving and stand up paddle boarding.

Trillian Fitzpatrick, DRM
Please Note: Trillian is currently on Maternity Leave. We are looking forward to welcoming her back in 2022.
As a teenager, Trillian suffered from debilitating headaches. It kick-started a passion for anatomy and physiology. She followed that curiosity into massage and helping others lead healthier, more pain-free lives.
Her career started with a sporting focus treating the Sydney Kings Basketball Team. After a stint working in London’s West End hotel industry, she returned to a clinical environment first in Sydney and now in her new home of Northern NSW.
Since having her son, she has gained a new appreciation for the importance of pregnancy and postpartum massage. Some of her most rewarding work came when she took an interest in offering a specialised massage for those affected by cancer.
Trillian is skilled in remedial and sports therapy, oncology, pregnancy, and lymphatic drainage massage and has a unique empathetic nature which puts people at ease. She has a personal connection to treating headaches and migraines, neck issues and pelvic imbalances.

Olivia Mostogl, DRM
My journey of massage began in 2013, where I studied and obtained many styles of massage qualifications. These include: Remedial Therapy, Sports Diploma Therapy, Myofascial Release, Triggerpoint therapy, Pregnancy, Dry Needling and Cupping. I’m extremely passionate and driven in this line of work and ensuring that people are well cared for and are able to return to 100%.
I’m particularly interested in pain management and the different mechanisms and compromises that the human body enacts to deal with the discomfort. Every person deals with pain in a unique way and through my work, I aim to discover and educate new wellbeing techniques to encourage holistic health.
I look forward to aiding you in your rehabilitation journey.
