What is Myotherapy
Myotherapy is evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions
What is the difference between Myotherapy and massage therapy?
Myotherapy and massage therapy are two distinct professions, with different aims and objectives, different health fund rebates, and very different educational pathways. As well as using massage therapy in our treatments we also call upon a vast range of other evidence-based treatment approaches.
What can I expect in a treatment?
Treatments vary according to the individual. They involve a lot of manual therapy, soft tissue work, trigger point therapy, dry needling, mobilisations, cupping, rehabilitation (exercise therapy), neural work and many others.
What do you treat?
I treat a huge range of different symptoms. For a full list click on the services tab.
Can I claim with my health fund?
Yes. If you have private health insurance you can claim then and there through the HICAPS system. Please make sure that you check with your health fund first.
What qualifications do you have?
I hold a Diploma of Remedial Massage and Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy. I’m currently studying the Bachelor of Health Science for Exercise and Sports Science with the intention of becoming an Exercise Physiologist.
How long does a treatment go for?
- Initial consult = 1 hour
- Standard consult = 45 mins
- Sports massage/short consult = 30 mins
Do I need a referral to see you?
No. I’m happy to see anybody and everybody that walks in the door. However, if specialised treatments are required from other healthcare professionals then they may refer on to me.
Do you work alongside other healthcare professionals?
Yes. Sometimes teamwork is an important approach to treatment and in a lot of cases patients can really benefit from multiple treatment disciplines. In these circumstances I will keep in contact with the other provider(s) to ensure we get the best for the client.
