James De Bono graduated his remedial massage in September 2006 then went on to complete his Myotherapy course in December 2007. He is currently employed at the Essendon Football Club as a Myotherapist / Remedial Massage Therapist. In season 09 both teams that he worked with while at Melbourne Storm, the NRL squad and under 20s, won the premiership. James also worked with the Queensland State of origin team while they were in Melbourne in 2015.

The variety of challenges and the different injuries present when working with sporting clubs is what James enjoys and that's why he pursues jobs at the highest level in this industry. He also enjoys working with the everyday person and helping them with their pains, discomforts and maintenance issues.

He has also worked with the Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club, Melbourne Rebels Rugby Union Club, Geelong Football Club, Western Bulldogs Football Club, the Green Gully Soccer Club, Sunshine Heights Football Club, Sunshine George Cross Soccer Club and The Australian Ballet. James looked after both seniors and reserve teams. His job at the Sunshine Heights Football Club consisted of soft tissue treatment and exercise rehabilitation. While at SHFC in 2008 the seniors won the division 2 premiership. At the Western Bulldogs in 07/08 James was able work alongside of sports physiotherapists and Doctors of Chinese medicine to advance in many skills, such as soft tissue techniques, exercise rehabilitation and traditional Chinese medicine, and apply them to his treatments. In the 2 years James was at GGSC (12-13) they were in the finals on both occasions and won the Dockerty Cup in 2013.



My name is Tung. I have been seeing James regularly for over 10 years now. I am a health care professional who live a very busy and active life. I play hockey at a State, National and several International tours. I have also had major knee surgery in recent years. James has played a major role in assisting with my recovery and rehabilitation in many aspects. I would also credit James to my day to day activities and also allowing me to play at a local level weekly with his preventative work. His ability to assess, diagnose and treat is very professional and effective. His range of skills, including his ability to perform alternative therapies, ie. cupping and needling, also makes the treatment I have received much more effective. He knows his limitations and refers on appropriately. I have often recommended James to teammates as well as family and friends. All have given positive feedback and have returned to see James again. I would highly recommend James as your choice of Myotherapist or Remedial Therapist. - Tung Le

I have been a client of James De Bono for about 8 months. I started seeing James for a back injury, I had tried a few other massage therapists before but from the initial time I went to see James I could see a big difference in by back. Being able to move more freely was a relief and the more I went the better I felt. He is fantastic at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone. - Jessica Axiak

The combination of motherhood, and the physical demands of being a Veterinary Nurse (which involves a lot of heavy lifting and on the floor work), mean I am more often than not "sore to the core".
I see James for treatment every 3-5 weeks mostly for chronic musculoskeletal problems related to arthritis, and a reoccurring lower back injury which I've had for over 20 years. I always appreciate his thoughtful and experienced care, and am continually reassured by his sound knowledge.
My personal experience spans over 10 years with James, and has only ever been positive. He has always provided professional and effective treatment.
I have no hesitation in recommending James De Bono for all Remedial Massage and Myotherapy needs to friends, colleagues and anyone else who will listen!
- Melody Ralph, Veterinary Nurse & Busy Mum of 4

I highly recommend James for lots of reasons , he is very knowledgeable and explains the root cause of the issues after investigating it, then he dose what he dose best by looking after you.
I had back issues and after the first visit he eased my pain and I could breath better .. I can compliment him lots but you will appreciate his service once you pay him a visit, it's absolutely worth it. - Akram Hagose

Professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, James took his time with the assessment and teaching me about my problem and how to correct it.
Pain free for the first time in a long time after one session… can’t thank you enough James..
Unfortunately a lifetime of bad posture cannot be remedied overnight and the lockdown means a halt to treatment… looking forward to having my next session!! James you are a magician and so much better than the collection of pills I’ve had to take to keep going… - Grisel Jose

James has helped me with targeted areas and I am overall pleased with the experience with both remedial massage and myotherapy and I can't recommend him enough. I have seen a great improvement to my troubled areas. He is professional, knowledgeable and helpful with a genuine interest in your well-being. - Monique Nguyen

I truly recommended James. He knows his stuff. I am a recreational runner, I need someone to look after my body especially when you are preparing yourself for a race. James is really knowledgeable, friendly and patient. He listens to my whinge while working on my sore feet, calf and leg. By the time it finished, I feel fresh straight away. I can't wait to see him again very soon. - Jeffry Husman

James has helped me with a number of sports injuries over the past few months to keep me moving and minimise down time from training. He's very professional and does a thorough assessment to understand the issues prior to treatment. Would definitely recommend him to anyone in the area! - Peta Faragher

Highly recommend anyone with muscle aches and pains to come see James. He's professional, experienced and strived to fix your problem with real results. Thank you so much James for treating my stubborn leg pain over the years. - Susie Hoang

What is the difference between remedial massage, myotherapy and other
therapies out there?

Remedial massage is the use of massage to help treat muscular skeletal conditions to reduce or eliminate pain and increased movement and range of motion. Stretching and strengthening advice and techniques ah also used.

Myotherapy is an advancement on Remedial Massage. It uses all techniques for remedial massage but also includes corrective exercises, ergonomic advice, dry needling and cupping.

Both Remedial Massage and Myotherapy usually consist of an appointment of an hour in length. This is a significantly longer and time that you would receive with a physiotherapist, chiropractor, osteopath or other therapist. That means your therapist gets longer to treat you and have more time to work out why you are getting your pain and discomfort and ultimately suggest things that you can do to help prevent your pain from coming on in the first place.
