Myotherapy Brisbane My pathway to the present

Ever since my younger years I've been interested in philosophy and cultures of Asian Countries. I admire their belief that a person exists on many different levels - physical, intellectual, energetic etc. That's why I started to explore these healing systems that have a holistic approach and work on the whole person. 

I started practising yoga in 2004 and became a certified yoga teacher in 2010. After a few years of yoga instruction and numerous workshops on movement therapy I decided to deepen my knowledge of human anatomy and physiology by taking a course in Musculokeletal Therapy. Very soon I was captivated by the amount of knowledge and skills that this degree offered. I have found that understanding the causes of impairments and pain has allowed me the ability to help people live a healthier life which is very rewarding.

What are my treatments like?

I use a holistic approach in my treatments, addressing both symptoms and causes of pain. I believe a collaboration between client and therapist is required in order to achieve the desired health goals. 

My treatment sessions are adapted to the client's needs and preferences, whether you are looking for general relaxation and stress relief or require a more in-depth treatment. Some of the many conditions I treat are:

  • Muscular pain and tightness
  • Incorrect posture and impaired movement
  • Reduced range of motion due to muscular or joint restrictions
  • Tendinopathies
  • Cervicogenic headaches
  • Neck, thoracic, and low back pain
  • Neurological symptoms such as tingling and/or numbness

I believe that part of a being a therapist includes educating the client on how to eliminate existing symptoms and how to prevent future injuries. Therefore my treatments continue outside of the clinic walls by encouraging you to cultivate body awareness and by performing particular exercises. This is where my experience as a yoga teacher is very useful.
