Bio

Leigh Baker  joined OPSMC in late 1989. Earlier that year, he began a 20-year association with Melbourne Football Club  (Dee’s) and in 1991, a 22-year association with Melbourne University (Sport).

Leigh Baker headed the Soft Tissue Department at OPSMC through the late 90’s and early 2000’s and was Head of Department at Melbourne Football Club and Melbourne University (Sport) for the duration of his time with both.

With 30 years’ massage experience, Leigh Baker doesn’t specialise in any particular area but he does a lot of neck, shoulder and arm dysfunction massage therapy, and believes computers are god’s gift to Massage Therapists!
