I would like to begin receiving massages for self care purposes but due to childhood sexual abuse I'm extremely sensitive around physical contact, particularly from strangers. I am located in Brisbane, QLD Australia and wondering if anyone has any insights on local services in the area or even just information and guidance on how to go through this process after experiencing sexual abuse.

I'm planning a party (by long-distance) on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and am trying to find a party planner on the spot to handle the logistics. I've found many childrens party planners, but the few party planners I've found that cater to adults are....VERY adult, providing riding crops and scented banana oil, sort of thing. NOT our sort of thing. Can anyone reccommend a planner for a very vanilla sort of celebratory shindig?

SE Queensland Dentist Filter: I need a dentist. But I want a nice one, or at least a non-judgmental one—I've had mean dentists! Needless to say, this has stopped me from going for quite a long time. I have decided to get braces though, so I need to have my teeth given the all-clear before approaching an orthodontist. I also need a recommendation for the orthodontist! Brisbane / Gold Coast area.
