Myotherapist / Remedial & Sports Massage Therapist
My name is Natalie and I am a passionate Myotherapist and Remedial Massage Therapist.
I am passionate about soft tissue techniques and practice all types of massage from sports / remedial to lymphatic drainage, trigger point therapy, deep tissue and Swedish massage and has special interest in dry needling, cupping, sports taping and gentle joint mobilisation.
I am interested in finding what the root cause is of your pain and find great pleasure in helping clients with chronic problems that other practitioners have been unable to help with.
My interest in massage and spinal health stems from seeking to help family members with a vast range of conditions from my father suffering low back pain, my sister suffering headaches from a postural neck problem and my mother suffering form osteopenia. Natalie wondered how these conditions could be intercepted and rectified before they turned to chronic issues.
My treatment approach focuses on finding the real cause of an individual's pain or injury and working together with them to develop a treatment plan that suits both their lifestyle and goals. I believe that as a practitioner it is my job to be a life - long student and stay current with the research in the field in order to deliver the most relevant and beneficial treatment to you, the client.
I have two years experience working with chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists and naturopaths to treat a wide variety of sports injuries and postural problems using manual therapy and exercise prescription. I also draw on my experience from matwork Pilates training for postural assessments and exercise program prescription.
I have completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Myotherapy) so you can rest assured that I am fully qualified to help you with your musculoskeletal issues.
I have a strong interest in exercise and movement. I keep fit at the gym with weightlifting and have been a previous competitor in the Taser sailing championships in 2013.
Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy that involves an extensive physical evaluation and an integrated therapeutic approach in the treatment of affected muscles, joints, connective tissues and nerves. Manual treatment methods include Swedish massage, remedial massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, spinal and peripheral joint mobilisations, dry needling, cupping and sports taping. Myotherapists work with holistic, long term goals in mind and provide rehabilitation plans for clients to help prevent reoccurrence.
Pilates is a system of exercise performed either on a mat or on specialised apparatus that is designed to improve posture, stability and mobility by enhancing body awareness. The integration of manual and movement therapy within treatment sessions creates more meaningful change to the body and lost lasting relief from pain or injury.
