5 Signs you should try Myotherapy

Fast injury recovery

Injury recovery“Doctors told me I needed surgery.  Now they are scratching their heads at my recovery.”…was the feedback we received after working with Grant, who’s follow up MRI scan revealed complete structural recovery.

After a very different prognosis from the medical professionals, Grant was referred to Advanced Myotherapy through a friend with success in recovering from a debilitating injury himself.

While an initial MRI scan showed a herniated disc causing nerve impingement, a few short months later, a new scan showed the spinal discs had realigned after the much needed corrective care, that not only was non invasive, but saved Grant from costly surgery and further recovery time.

Since then, Grant regained feeling in his legs where there was numbness and tingling down to his feet, and began to live more fully again.

Regardless of how an injury is sustained, there are basic principles of recovery that allow muscle and bone to heal faster. Regaining musculoskeletal stability by increasing both length and strength of the muscles is key to restoring range of motion (ROM) and mobility after injury.

Another key element of healing after injury is sufficient rest which is something most people don’t realise. Returning to normal duties at work or getting back to sport as usual too soon will prolong injury recovery where further rest often times speeds up the return of muscular stability.

Myo (muscle) therapists encourage people to ensure they reduce physical activity for a sufficient amount of time before re-introducing specific exercises that build up muscle fibres to original strength while undergoing a treatment to break up any acquired scar tissue. What this type of treatment does is free the area of injury from trauma and restriction that ultimately ends up causing further damage left untreated or unhealed, further down the track.

Myotherapists also offer education around corrective self care that reduces the likelihood of re-injury as well as helping to restore musculoskeletal integrity and general wellbeing. Many of our past, present and ongoing clients have found that even long standing injuries that reduced their quality of life, have dissipated after a speedy recovery with correct maintenance and treatment.

If you have a long standing or even recent injury, Myotherapy is a type of treatment that can help you recover fast and for the long term. For those who have never seen a Myotherapist, have tried all other avenues, we encourage you to inquire about how we can help. Many of our clients have found that after trying a multitude of modalities…finally they find results with us. So please don’t hesitate to call or email us to ask about your injury. We are always willing to chat.

Self Care Medicine – A Guide to Living Well


Self Care Medicine


This October has been an exciting time for Advanced Myotherapy! Before we share our big news, we wish to share with you our pleasure in seeing Myotherapy gaining recognition in recent times. In a wonderful time and place, we at Advanced Myotherapy are encouraged by the recent publicity of the profession receiving more recognition for it’s holistic yet specialist treatment for muscular imbalances.

In the Age Newspaper this past week, we have seen Back Pain become the focus for it’s far too common premature misdiagnosis and medically recommended surgery. It has been revealed that far too often pain sufferers are advised to undertake surgery as a first option in the attempt to correct treatable conditions, reversible with non-invasive corrective therapies such as Myotherapy. In “The Truth About Back Pain” article, it is admitted that there is a growing number of sufferers opting to take pain killers which potentially cause further damage, by masking the pain.

In addition to this article, we recently came across an article published in the Natural Health Mag on the benefits of Myotherapy (Muscle Therapy). So needless to say, we are pleased that we are supported in our cause of educating the public in natural methods of pain management with Myotherapy.

Also this month, we bring you our long anticipated book of our own “Self Care Medicine – A Guide to Living Well” along with the 2nd edition of “The Sacred Psychology of Healing – Secrets to Awakening the Mind-Body Potential” book. This is a huge joy to finally bring you all of our very best advice for treating pain naturally, without resorting to  costly medical interventions or pharmaceutical dependence. As a clinic and team, we share our experience of effective solutions that guarantee results.

We have tried and tested each of the principles we share and base them on sound bio-mechanical science combined with holistic considerations for individual needs, specific to a range of symptom presentations and pain patterns. Leah and Matthew collaborated together on this Self Care Guide, bringing over well over a decade of professional experience each to provide insight into the most fundamental essential recovery principles and tools for a better quality of life.

So this month, stay tuned for upcoming invitations to celebrate our fifth year of establishment at Advanced Myotherapy along with the launch celebration and book signing all in one, combined with an exciting charity fund raiser. Collaborating on offering Self Care workshops for a Humanitarian cause, we will be sharing with you our inspired mission of contributing to a larger vision for a better future. A future that promotes equality and opportunity in an area very dear to our hearts.

Spinal Nerve Health

When it comes to illnesses and ailments, prevention is always better than cure. There is no substitute for a healthy body—certainly not even a repaired one.  Myotherapy focuses primarily on treatment of the root of problematic symptoms, as well as their prevention. The aim of Myotherapy is long-term relief from pain symptoms by treating their underlying causes.

Offering effective treatment for pain management and musculoskeltal conditions, Myotherapy combines advanced active release techniques with modalities such as dry needling, trigger point therapy, cupping and much more than just massage therapy alone, and is considered a specialist field of muscle therapy, used to treat symptoms of pain and deep-seeded problems of the muscular system.

Incorporating extensive consultation and assessment for the purpose of addressing key postural issues, Myotherapy is a successful method of treating ailments such as spinal nerve root compression.

This condition is one that sees pressure from a herniated disk, stemming from muscular imbalances and tensions, placing pressure on both discs and joints.

Chronic back pain is often treated with surgery that requires a minimum of months in recovery in many cases. However, surgery is most often performed far too quickly upon the recommendation of Doctor’s which is both financially costly and physically taxing.

Given the wide range of risks also involved, it is obviously to far better to avoid surgery and choose more corrective types of treatment, such as Myotherapy.

Advanced myotherapy has a natural and holistic approach to therapy.

Our clinical treatment has proven to be beneficial for pain management and rehabilitation in many cases that have defied diagnosis and bypassed recommended surgery.

Treating the roots of many symptoms, we have successfully treated  many conditions such as sciatica, neck pain, carpel tunnel, disk herniation and a lot more.

Other benefits of Myotherapy in general include correction of posture and spinal alignment which is significantly influential  in maintaining a healthy body and mind from a very scientific perspective regarding the function of all body systems.

The Power of Prevention

Better than a cure, the most valuable investment you can make is in your health! 

A truly underestimated  pathway towards healing and recovery in every sense of disease, from speeding up injury recovery and cellular regeneration to reversing accumulated toxins in the form of Cancer cell growth, whole foods medicine, simple nutrition and self care are our most abundant sources of health and well being.

But you won’t hear too much about this from mainstream medical professionals. Doctors of “General Practice” don’t have any training in this field. Doctors training includes not one subject on nutrition, not even a lecture…in all of the 6 years they train. Not one! Scary? Surprising?

To us, this is obscene. Attending the International Association of Cancer Victors & Friend’s event over the weekend, Advanced Myotherapy enjoyed an informative talk from the well known Dr Ian Gawler from the Gawler Foundation, where this topic was discussed.

What we were inspired by, was the very real and overwhelming evidence that “You can heal” from such toxic conditions, beyond the orthodox medical prognosis’ – just as we have seen many of our own clients do. From being recommended surgery, numerous clients of our own have returned for scans months after such debilitating diagnosis, with complete healing and recovery of structural integrity, just as Dr Ian Gawler experienced many years ago. He now lives 30 yrs past what he was expected to after recovering from bone cancer.

So after being inspired by Dr Ian Gawler over this last weekend, we encourage each of you this month, to look closely at your lifestyles, your habits and self care. Do you take enough time out for yourself, to rejuvenate?

It has been found in many studies that those who work less, are far more productive than those that work hard. So we say…work Smart, No Hard. At Advanced Myotherapy we follow this same principle.

To get lasting results, we provide thorough assessments and self care education for the long term health and balance of our clients. This has worked well for us, in supporting our clients to become independent, not relying on us for long term pain management, rather than gaining an understanding of a real solution, being simple self maintenance and prevention.

In saying this, we encourage each of you to take good care, set some time aside for you, and prevent burn out with more focus on the long term. We like to say…you either invest in your health now…or later. The choice is yours.

So remember…It’s important to Eat that little bit better, move that little bit more, and inquire that little bit deeper about how you can best look after you…for these are the little things that will take you far. So take care dear friends, and when stressed, worn out or wound up, remember we are here. Not just for when you’re in pain. In fact, preferably before. And with our online booking system save yourself some valuable time, and book online next time.

Dry Needling

Shoulders Back & Breathe

With the spine in mind, this month we share the most common pain triggers we find. From all strength and no length, many symptoms we see, can be corrected easily, through simple self care and just being more aware. The number one cause of muscle imbalance we see stems from rigid routines and poor circulation.


Our number one prescription to clients today remains to lengthen the body, straighten the hips and open the chest to lift the strain placed on vital organs from the lungs and heart, for overall health and longevity.

The respiratory system is essential to all physical functions, and depends upon the structural alignment of balanced posture and muscle movement.

This is central to our practice in helping people reach their health potential and reverse premature ageing. Cellular regeneration relies upon a stress free circulatory system, unrestrained from postural pressure.

Our mission is to facilitate the free flow of essential vitality through nerve, muscle and spinal solutions to supply vital functions to all internal organs. This is why we have such genuine desire to succeed in our drive to lead the field of natural health professionals in preventative medicine.

This Autumn, we introduce a strong focus on Natural Therapies for self care with a Season Special for a Traditional method of healing with the Cupping modality. Valued at $65, this treatment is designed to assist Natural Detoxification.

Now only $49 for the Autumn season, our Cupping treatment draws toxins to the surface for elimination and cellular rejuvenation.

To our new subscribers, we extend a warm welcome and encourage new clients to take advantage of our $50 1 hour initial Massage treatment, valued at $100.

Simply mention your email subscription upon booking your first appointment for this exclusive offer. For those who have experienced our treatment and share your feedback, we extend our gratitude this Autumn with 25% off your next visit as our way of saying thank you. That’s all this month. Happy Easter and April Fools day. Have a great week.
