Need a massage and it’s only day 2 of the school holidays?
We’re open, and although we know you’d probably prefer the time to yourself, we want you to know that our clinic is kid friendly!
There are toys for the little ones, or your older kids can choose to read, or of course every kids favourite, play games or watch YouTube.
We can help you save your mobile data by connecting you to our wifi during your treatment, so the kids can keep themselves busy and you don’t have to wait til they’re back at school.
We’ll also be open throughout the AFL Grand Final weekend, including on Friday the 27th (the Grand Final eve public holiday) and on Saturday the 28th.
Time to make a booking? We’ll see you soon!
Wondering why the clinic was closed at Ferntree Gully on the weekend?
It was because I set up a pop up clinic at the Seven Sisters Festival in Mt Martha!
My wonderful friend Mel from Your Myotherapy in Apollo Bay joined me to offer myotherapy and remedial massage treatments to the ladies at the festival, and we had a blast - even in the 38-40* heat!
What is the Seven Sisters Festival? Its a 3 day weekend of workshops, classes, markets, food and connection. Think yoga classes, sound healing, singing, presentations, crafts, camping with your friends and a whole lot more!
The preparation time and effort was well worth it. We got to offer about 70 treatments over 3 days, and we were in high demand. We had info brochures available, and got to discuss myotherapy with a lot of interested ladies.
Our most frequently asked question was - what IS myotherapy? I like to explain it in simple terms, so I usually explain it in relation to other treatments that people might be more familiar with:
Its a treatment for muscle and joint pain or dysfunction that can have a lot of hands on time (like a remedial massage) and has a bunch of other tools and techniques to achieve very specific outcome goals for recovery and rehabilitation (similar to a physiotherapist)
I had a great time, but I must say I am really glad to be back to the air conditioned comfort of my own treatment room!
Did you miss me? I'm back to normal clinic hours again so you can book in to see me when you need me.
Did you know I'm upgrading my qualification?
I'm currently studying my Bachelor of Health Science (Myotherapy) at Endeavour College of Natural Health!
The Bachelor of Health Science gives me more advanced techniques, including mobilisation, assessments, pathology and clinical sciences, pain neuroscience, foundations of human nutrition, further corrective exercise prescription, and lots more!
Any of you who know me, know I'm a total nerd about this stuff, and I'm very excited to bring new skills week by week back into my clinic.
I start on campus classes in March 2018. I'll be studying all day from 8am through til 6pm on Thursdays.
My available clinic hours from March 2018 will be:
Monday - 9am-7pm
Tuesday - 9am-7pm
Wednesday - 9am-7pm
Thursday - closed
Friday - 9am-7pm
Saturday - closed

After a long year of study, I am going on holiday!
It was my 30th birthday in February, and my awesome partner Adam turned 30 last year, and two of our best pals also hit the big 3-0 this year. So we are out of here for nearly two weeks to Cambodia!
So it's business as usual right up until 4pm on Tuesday May 23rd, then our flight departs just after midnight.
We'll be away til early June, and the clinic will reopen from Wednesday June 7th.
If you want to get in to see me before I go, get in quick and book online now!
