My greatest passion is to have my clients walk out feeling renewed and refreshed and feeling a hundred times better than when they walked in.

Hi, my name is Annie and I am a clinical Myotherapist, remedial massage therapist and pregnancy massage therapist. I have always had a passion for natural therapies and the healing ability of massage and other physical therapies. My greatest passion is to have my clients walk out feeling renewed and refreshed and feeling a hundred times better than when they walked in!

I have been practicing as a Myotherapist for 5 years and have treated people from all walks of life. From young children to expectant mums, elite road cyclists, weekend warriors, office workers, tradespeople, and retirees. My focus is honing in on those areas of the body that need the most help, and using a variety of treatments to relieve stress, tension and pain.

What can Myotherapy help with?

  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Tension headaches and migraines
  • Sports injuries, muscle sprains, strains and tears
  • Tendinopathies

During a Myotherapy session, I use a variety of skills including
Soft and deep tissue massage
Cupping (both static and moving)
Stretching
Exercise prescription and
Dry needling
These treatments can assist with muscle soreness, active trigger points, sports injuries and acute and chronic muscular injuries. I aim to balance my treatments between relaxation of the mind and body, while also providing a therapeutic benefit to my clients.

As well as treating injuries and sore spots, I also love looking after pregnant mums! Pregnancy can be a time of intense changing and shifting in a womans’ body and I find that massage can bring so many physical and emotional benefits to my clients.
