We provide optimal care and management for muscle dysfunction. Specialising in manual therapy we are able to diagnose clients and treat their musculoskeletal conditions.


Myotherapy is the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of many forms of muscle pain and related soft tissue injuries and conditions.

Myotherapy is a highly-effective, holistic approach to rehabilitation and pain management.

Acute sporting or occupational injuries and postural conditions are common complaints that benefit from Myotherapy care. It can also be used for pain management of chronic musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders, in addition to pain associated with muscular overuse, misuse or disuse, as well as helping to prevent injury.

The highly trained and educated Myotherapy practitioners use hands-on therapy to treat a wide range of muscular pain including:

  • Lower Back Pain
  • Neck & Shoulder Pain
  • Hip & Sciatic Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Arthritic and Joint pain
  • Pre and post natal pain
  • Restricted Movement and Inflexibility
  • Injuries relating to sporting activity

How does a Myotherapist work?

Our therapists use a combination of treatment tools and client education to achieve the best outcomes for our clients.

Some of which include:

  • Deep tissue manipulative techniques
  • Myofascial Dry needling
  • Cupping
  • Myofascial stretching
  • Functional taping
  • Thermal therapy
  • Therapeutic, prescriptive and corrective exercises
  • Nutritional education

One of the keys to effective treatment is the assessment skill of the practitioner. Using a combination of tactile skill, anatomical knowledge and clinical understanding, our therapists can identify abnormalities in muscular and connective tissues. This knowledge helps determine the therapeutic techniques to be used within each treatment.

The appropriate use of education strategies is crutial to engage patients in the recovery process, and assist in the prevention of future injuries.

Exceptional patient management and principles are an important aspect of working as a practitioner within the Ballarat Myotherapy Clinic team.

Clinical Myotherapist

Renee has worked as Myotherapist for 4 years and as a Remedial Therapist prior to that in various clinics across QLD and the Pilbara, WA. She loves working with clients to relieve their aches and pains and re-introduce all the movement our bodies are meant to do everyday. She especially enjoys working with chronic myofascial restriction, old injuries that continue to niggle and help clients to alleviate the stiffness that many of our sedentary jobs lead us to get ‘stuck’ in.

Managing stress in the body, keeping active enough to play with the kids on the ground or go a full day at work without feeling like you’re going to collapse are often goals Renee works with clients to achieve. Renee’s main motivation to move down to Victoria from QLD was the gorgeous countryside Ballarat sits among, with camping, hiking and kayaking her favourite activities to do when the time (and weather) permits. When she’s not in clinic she’ll be out exploring everything the Grampians have to offer!
