Theo was told he needed surgery for Archilles Tendonitis and sought a second opinion at our clinic. He since recovered fully without surgery and is back to playing tennis and chasing his children around, enjoying fatherhood.

Grant had a herniated disc and couldn’t work for many weeks. He was recommended surgery after he tried many different modalities including physio and osteo.

Harmful drug use continues to be a serious public health issue in Australia with 1,808 drug induced deaths registered in 2016.

Most of these deaths were due to prescription pain killers. Pain medications are highly addictive and the dependance on them can be lethal and debilitating!

Moving Beyond Pain naturally is vital now more than ever as stress and injury related illnesses and pain conditions are on the rise.

At 18, Leah had 2 car accidents suffering neck and thoracic trauma. She had tried Yoga, Chiropractors for both her pain and scoliosis… and Acupuncture for a number of years before we began her true healing journey. ⠀

Myotherapy worked like magic and the rest is history (or her story). Self care and healing became such a passion that Leah joined forces with Matthew and built their dream of making healing more accessible for those in pain! ⠀

So… as you see… Advanced Myotherapy has been built over not only a decade of love and inspiration… but a lifetime of healing and empowerment to overcome adversity through self care! THIS Is (just one reason) why we promote it til the cows come home!
