BHSc-Clinical Myotherapy

I first became interested in becoming a Clinical Myotherapist after having dislocated my right shoulder multiple times in one football season. After having had shoulder reconstructive surgery I needed somewhere to do my rehab. Guy McGrath (Founder and owner of Complete Muscle Care) provided me with treatment and strengthening exercises to get me back on track.

I studied for 4 years at SSNT in Fitzroy to attain a bachelor degree in Clinical Myotherapy. Here I learned to use many different treatment techniques to help with all sorts of muscular conditions. I have been working in this field since 2013.

I have a keen interest in pre and post-natal treatments having done additional study in this field which was put to good use in August 2018 when my son, Edison, was born. I am also very interested in headaches and neck related conditions but am more than confident with all other aspects of the body.

I like to use Dry Needling Therapy where I can, as I find it to be one of the most effective modalities at my disposal, however, I do realise that needling is not for everyone.

I absolutely love my job and being able to help people in pain return to what they love to do most is a very rewarding feeling. Whether you’re in acute or chronic pain I would love the opportunity to be able to help you through it.
