I began my studies in 2012 at the Australian College of Massage, completing my Certificate 4 in relaxation massage. This had a natural progression to the Diploma of Remedial Massage, which I went on to complete in 2014.
At the start of 2015 I enrolled into the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy at the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy. Travelling to Melbourne every Thursday for a year, learning from some of the best in the industry.
My principles revolve around
– Ensuring my clients are getting accurate and relevant treatment with new assessments each treatment to measure progress.
– Personalised treatments to ensure the highest level of care and best result possible.
– Educating my clients so they leave feeling empowered and understand why the injury/problem may have been created in the first place to help prevent it from happening in the future.
**Did you know?
Myo in Greek means muscle – so in basic terms Myotherapy = Muscle Therapy. However Myotherapist’s don’t stop there, we treat a broad and extensive range of musculoskeletal dysfunctions, aches and pains, injuries and not to forgot, those irritating niggles when performing everyday activities.
From deep tissue work, fascial release, mobilisation of joints, muscle energy techniques, cupping (glass and plastic), myofascial dry needling and an in depth knowledge based around clinical assessment to get to the root of the problem.
Myotherapy never just treats the one muscle, we are trained and knowledgeable enough to know the body is a very extensive vehicle – assessing things like anatomy trains, how one joint cannot function without the joint above and below it – so you can be assured all bases will be covered, even if that means looking at the arch in your foot for the reason your shoulder is sore – trust me, its all relevant!
Myotherapy is based around clinical research so everything we use has a following of scientific research behind it – which is the reason it is quickly becoming one of the most effective treatments.
