“For about a month I suffered a pinched nerve close to my spine that was causing me much discomfort. Since visiting Advance Myotherapy last week I’ve never felt better. I can move and breath with out feeling any pain, as well as getting a proper nights sleep.
I would highly recommend the service at Advance Myotherapy, Alexi was so professional and new exactly where I need to be treated.. Thank you.”

“I broke a vertebrae in my back with a serious sports injury while playing soccer, which diminished my quality of life. I tried everything from Doctors to Chiropractors and Physiotherapy, and finally with your help I am living again. My back is back on track! I refer all of my friends to you and they always thank me.”

“The best Myotherapy clinic I’ve been to and I’ve been to many due to my chronic back pain. I have seen them with chronic pain issues and with my post-op recovery both after my back and knee surgery. I really appreciate their commitment to staying up to date with the latest research and hands-on techniques.
I have been seeing physios and osteos for over 5 years and Matt is the first that actually makes a positive difference.”

“Matt, I’d like to thank you for the awesome work on my back and legs. 6 months ago I couldn’t walk and now I have done the Dandenong mountains 1000 steps 2 weeks in a row. You are a life saver. I feel so much better and happier with all the pain gone. Keep the good work up. Again thank you”

Both the surgeon and the Physio told me I would never get feeling back down the outside of my foot.. After 2 sessions at Advanced Myotherapy of doing trigger point needling, stripping the ligaments and some deep tissue work I’m already getting sensation back!

Jessica CurlWellness Coach

“I severely dislocated my right shoulder in Jan 2013. I’m a painter by trade and play cricket. I’m also right handed. Which left me wondering if i could ever paint properly and for long durations again. Playing cricket was also possibly out of the question. With Matthew Cleary’s advice, knowledge and ability to physically help me recover with treatments and him educating me on maintaining my shoulder with corrective exercises etc. I’ve been able to paint full time and play cricket with no issues at all.”

“I just saw Kate and I’m walking on air!! I didn’t realise just how tight my neck and back were. I feel fabulous! Already booked in for the next session!!”Carli Health

“The best treatment in Melbourne. After four weeks of a chest infection and sore ribs from constant coughing, the doctor advised there was no more they could do except for me to take the antibiotics. One hour with Matt and I am breathing deeply again and have stopped coughing. Do yourself a favour and experience the magic of this myotherapy clinic!” Rose Gigliotti

“Ive been treated by many Myo therapists up until I met Matt and his team at advanced Myotherapy. The treatments are second to none! As a semi professional athlete that still works a full time job my body requires regular A-class treatment, not only do the guys at advanced myotherapy provide that, they educate you on self care!!!!  From the moment you walk into the clinic, the energy and professionalism is on point!” – Andrew Erzen, Melbourne Ice

I attended Advanced Myotherapy with a left hip issue which had prevented me from running further than 5 km for a number of months. After my initial appointment… my hip immediately felt better and I was able to run with a significantly less amount of discomfort in my left hip and leg…I have since been back three times and after each visit, my leg has felt better. I feel more confident that I will be able to return to my distance running in the very near future.” – Filip Wos 

“Matthew at Advanced myotherapy helped me become migraine free! I was having several migraines a month and had to take strong painkillers, leave work abruptly and shut myself in the dark for 24hrs. Matthew found an issue with my neck which was causing the problem. He also taught me to self manage and I now know how to recognise symptoms and care for my health much better! THANKS ADVANCED MYOTHERAPY! :)” – Elle Martin

“Great experience, nice dark relaxing room, I booked my appointment same day by email, with a return call, they fit me in. I was a knotty mess, in a huge amount of discomfort,  I finished feeling much better and being able to move and breath properly . definitely heading back again. Highly recommended. Excellent job!”Alexandra Ruscoe

“I just recently bought a voucher to try Advanced Myotherapy in Carlton. having had many different types of massages, but not really understanding remedial/deep tissue massages, l gave it a go.To my surprise, not only were the reception staff helpful and friendly, the practitioner who l had was very thorough in explaining to me the differences between the massages and it;s respective benefits. I also tried ‘dry needles’, which worked a treat. I’m still feeling the benefits days after the treatment. I would definitely recommend it to friends and l am already booking myself back for treatment.” – Kiet Diep

 “I’ve been struggling with sciatica pain the last week. She not only treated the problem but I left feeling a sense of calm that my body hadn’t felt in a while. The place itself is clean and relaxing. Well done team.” – Melissa Nasser 

“I’ve had recurring injuries that couldn’t be fixed from previous doctors, physios, you name it! But, advanced myotherapy and specifically my myotherapist (jamil) solved all these issues… and I couldn’t be happier. I really enjoy the intriguing aspects of cupping and acupuncture. I really recommend this to people who can’t resolve their physical injuries/issues. Thank you!! 5/5” – Oliver Kmita

“I came to Advanced Myotherapy with a frozen shoulder after I fell over and injured it. The Physiotherapist originally treated it with a quarterzone injection. After a short series of treatments, I am grateful to finally be able to move my shoulder again.” – Mandy Hunter, Coteries Manager, Carlton Football Club   Bulging Disc

“I recently went to Advanced Myotherapy and was amazed by the results. I have had chronic stiffness as a result of a childhood accident. I practice yoga to help self manage my pain, but there are some postures I find difficult. After just one session with Murray I am able to go much deeper into my postures. I’ll be going back! And I’ll keep you updated as to the long term out come :). Good luck to anyone else out there recovering from accidents, I have hope for the first time in ages!”Angie

“I came in last Saturday after winning the fb draw. I will be booking again in the not to distant future , my neck has never felt better, so much focus on my shoulders and neck was a pleasant surprise.”Nicole Street

“My sciatic nerve has been giving me problems on and off for the last couple of months.. every time it seemed to get better, it would come back and force me to take time off work and stay home because unable to do anything.

The last time this happened, a dear friend of mine l asked me if I ever considered getting some myotherapy, and told me about this place which is just around the corner from where i live. I was very skeptical, but willing to do and try anything to get rid of the pain, so i booked in a 1 hour session for the very same day.

Jamil was amazing, he reached muscles that i didn’t even know about. We tried deep tissue, dry needles and also cupping. Today is my first day after treatment, and I already feel an other person. I can walk properly without any nerve pain ( my butt cheek is just a bit sore but considering that 5 needles were stuck in there it all makes sense). I am really happy and satisfied, i will definitely go back probably in a couple of weeks for an other session. Great work guys, thank you SO much!” Diago Palma

I really appreciate their commitment to staying up to date with the latest research and hands-on techniques.
I have been seeing physios and osteos for over 5 years and Matt is the first that actually makes a positive difference. Matt is incredibly supportive and goes the extra mile to ensure that I get the best treatment possible. I have really benefited from his focus on long-term strategies alongside treating immediate issues. I can’t recommend the Advanced Myotherapy highly enough!” – Marta, Health Educator

“I was diagnosed with CTA – carpel tunnel symcrome, tendonitis and fibromialga and was treated by a Psysio for 4 months once a week.  You did more for me in one session  than the physio did in that whole time and the tingling is almost gone already.” Malina Larm

“Lower back pain persisting over 3 years despite seeing chiropractors, physiotherapist, shiatsu massage therapist and sports medicine specialist, has completely settled after few treatments. I am amazed and surprised! He has great knowledge and excellent technique in delivering treatment, as well as very effective use of dry needling to release muscle tension and “knots”. Not only great results, but also very professional and friendly service. Thank you!” – Maziar

“After pulling a muscle in my back rolling over in bed (go figure?!) a colleague suggested trying Myotherapy. So, my first ever Myo session was today with Jamil and it was wonderful! He got deep into some pressure points and was gentle with the sore area. He listened and was very kind and patient with me. I’m going back next week. And probably every week after that :)” Ineke Mast

“l came in feeling tight and restricted through the upper back and shoulders. I have been working long hours and felt my posture tilting forward through the neck and shoulders. I had cupping and treatment to open up the shoulders again and was shown what stretching to do to reverse my posture imbalances. I feel a lot more comfortable in my body since my visit as a result.” Ellio, Collingwood

“I had chronic pain since an accident several years ago, both in my leg and chest. I was diagnosed with “chronic pain syndrome” suffering to the point of being hospitalised. I was prescribed drugs and receiving multiple forms of treatment, unable to exercise  for 4 months with no success taking anti-inflams. I was ill to my stomach with medication and receiving ongoing physiotherapy until I found you. I tried Bowen therapy, Osteo, Chiro, Massage and everything, but since treatment at Advanced Myotherapy, there has been significant improvement. I feel so much better knowing what really helps.” – Danni West, Student

“We refer many patients to Myotherapists. I am going to use your technique on my patients. That was amazing. No Chiropractor has ever been able to balance my pelvis like that!” – Dr Caroline Pain – Chiropractor, Mordialloc

“I have chronic tmj and recurring pain in my right shoulder and neck, diagnosed since 2008. I have tried chiro, osteo, physio and massage for several years and had little effect and a lot of financial outlay…I am extremely relieved by the treatment and impressed with the knowledge, empathy, professionalism and insight of the practitioners.I feel that ongoing treatment with advanced myotherapy will aid my recovery and potentially treat my condition. I would highly recommend this practice and myotherapy and dry needling.” – Clareissa Holm
