Neck and shoulder pain
Hip and sciatic pain
Headaches and migraines
Arthritic and joint pain

What To Expect During Your Myotherapy Appointment
Our myotherapists will conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment regarding your medical history, lifestyle, pathology, relevant scans, function, pain levels, mobility, and goals.
Myotherapists have a wide variety of manual techniques they provide during treatment. During your myotherapy appointment, you can expect your myotherapist to provide a tailored treatment plan based on your condition and goals.
Education is a fundamental element in improving your health and wellbeing. We will provide you with relevant and up-to-date strategies and knowledge to aid your recovery and prevent further issues.
What Are The Benefits Of Myotherapy?
Identification Of Root Cause
Many illnesses and injuries can negatively impact your day-to-day life. Myotherapy can help to improve your issues as you return to your usual activities.
A common issue we treat is pain. This may develop from injuries or acute and chronic illness and conditions.
Mental Health Support
This therapy may help relieve emotional tension and support you alongside mental health treatment.
Stiffness, tension, pain and joint issues can lead to reduced mobility. Working to alleviate underlying issues can improve movement.
What Techniques Are Utilised In Myotherapy?
Trigger point therapy
Myofascial stretching and release
Deep tissue manipulation
Prescription of therapeutic, strengthening, and corrective exercises and stretches.
Arielle has always enjoyed working and collaborating with people and made the move to Myotherapy to better help her community take an active role in their health.
Arielle has in-depth knowledge regarding assessments and benefits of different treatment techniques and believes that client-centred care, addressing the cause of the pain, is the best way to treat the symptoms. She is passionate about pain reduction techniques and assisting her patients to reach their goals and get the most out of life.
Outside of the clinic, you can find Arielle enjoying outdoor adventures, baking up a storm, and reading whatever books she can get her hands on.
Renee has worked as Myotherapist for 4 years and as a Remedial Therapist prior to that in various clinics across QLD and the Pilbara, WA. She loves working with clients to relieve their aches and pains and re-introduce all the movement our bodies are meant to do everyday. She especially enjoys working with chronic myofascial restriction, old injuries that continue to niggle and help clients to alleviate the stiffness that many of our sedentary jobs lead us to get ‘stuck’ in. She employs a range of hands on techniques and teaches easy to follow exercise activities that can be done anywhere, anytime!
Managing stress in the body, keeping active enough to play with the kids on the ground or go a full day at work without feeling like you’re going to collapse are often goals Renee works with clients to achieve. Renee’s main motivation to move down to Victoria from QLD was the gorgeous countryside Ballarat sits among, with camping, hiking and kayaking her favourite activities to do when the time (and weather) permits. When she’s not in clinic she’ll be out exploring everything the Grampians have to offer!
