The most common questions I am asked when I tell people I am a Myotherapist are “What is a Myotherapist?” and “What do you do?” So I think this is a good place to start.
Myotherapy as a Career Path
Through my heavy involvement in the sporting environment, I have always had a strong passion for Health and Wellbeing. As an athlete, I understand first-hand the many benefits of Myotherapy. Now as a Myotherapist, I observe in practice these very benefits athletes achieve allowing them to perform at their physical best.
I successfully completed my VCE in 2009 and graduated as a Myotherapist in June 2013.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Myotherapy course, in particular, the Corrective Exercise/Rehabilitation and Dry Needling components. The classes were specifically focused on building and introducing additional skills/techniques to widen your abilities beyond Remedial Massage Therapy.
I have the desire to always increase my knowledge and expertise to continually keep me at the forefront of this field of work.
Basketball has always been my chosen sport where I began playing at the age of five. I played the majority of my junior development years with the Eltham Wildcats in the Victorian Championship (VC) League.
I represented Country Victoria for three years competing at the National level, taking home Silver in 2008. In 2009 after completing my VCE, I was awarded a full four-year NCAA Basketball Scholarship to the United States of America. After spending some time overseas, I returned home with the ambition to continue my studies in the Health and Wellbeing industry and resumed playing basketball at an elite level here in Australia.
