WHAT IS MYOTHERAPY
A Myotherapist has completed an advanced diploma of remedial massage, or similar course which consists of 3-4 yrs of training.
Myotherapists assess and physically treat myofascial pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapy is applied in the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases of therapy to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structure (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the human body.
Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia is described as myofascial. Myofascial pain is usually not specific and is often described by the patient as a 'deep ache', 'tightness' or 'tenderness' in an area. It can vary in intensity and radiate to other areas. Other symptoms can include reduced range of motion of muscles and joints, stiffness, fatigue, weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation. There are many other symptoms depending on the condition and patients can have one or many symptoms.
Common conditions that Myotherapists can treat include:
- Sporting & occupational injuries
- Stiffness & pain associated with poor posture
- Associated joint & vertebral dysfunction & pain
- Acute & chronic conditions affecting function & mobility
- Scoliosis / Kyphosis
- Headaches / migraines
- Acute and chronic stiff and painful neck
- Chronic overuse syndromes - tendonitis, RSI, tennis/golfer's elbow, carpal tunnel
- Acute & chronic back pain / 'sciatica'
- Shoulder pain, impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder
- Hand & finger numbness / tingling thoracic outlet syndrome
- Knee, leg & foot pain shin splints, patella tracking dysfunction, runners knee, ankle sprains
- Arthritis / Multiple Sclerosis
- Pregnancy pre/post natal complaints
- Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia
- Pain & dysfunction associated with stress & tension
- Rehabilitative stage of an injury or illness
What to expect from a Myotherapy consultation:
Assessment - Clinical assessment is reliant on history taking, examination routines of particular joints or regions, assisted by highly developed tactile, palpatory skills and a thorough understanding of joint and muscular assessment procedures. These skills distinguish Myotherapy from other physical therapies. Assessment of potential causes of dysfunction is also important, as is a detailed postural examination.

OVER 40 FIVE STAR REVIEWS ON GOOGLE
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.

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.

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!
