If you are suffering from exercise related pain or tightness then you should consider sports massage as it will help prevent, reduce and eliminate pain and tightness that may prevent you from continuing to exercise or even worse stop you from exercising.

Sports massage focuses on muscles relevant to the event. For athletes who train continuously, the goal is to enhance endurance, lessen the chance of injury and shorten the time needed to recover from an event. Sports Massage may utilize a variety of techniques such as classical Swedish Massage, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue massage which are designed to reduce injuries, alleviate inflammation and warm-up the muscles. This may be used for amateur and professional athletes before, during, after, and within their training regimens. Prior to an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used with stretching in order to help athletes to loosen, warm and prepare their muscles so that their performance and endurance might be enhanced.

Following an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness or DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), and return the muscles back to their normal state. Sports Massage may also be used for injury rehabilitation.

While working at elite sporting clubs it is common practise that these athletes receive at least 2 sports massage a week while in session and at least 1 per week in pre and post session training. The reason for this is as the muscles get stronger they also get tighter which make them more prone to injury. Regular massage help loosen off any tightness and therefore prevent injury. It also promotes blood circulation which helps injuries recover faster.


Currently I am employed at the Essendon Football Club as a Myotherapist / Remedial Massage Therapist. In season 09 both teams that I work with at Melbourne Storm, the NRL squad and under 20s, won the premiership. The NRL squad where premiers again in 2012 when they def Canterbury 14-4.

I enjoy the variety of challenges and the different injuries present when working with sporting clubs and this is why I pursue jobs at the highest level in this industry. I also enjoy working with the everyday person and helping them with their pains, discomforts and maintenance issues.

I have 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 Gorge Cross Soccer Club and The Australian Ballet. When working with the GFC in 08/09 I enjoyed my time at the club, In the 07/08 seasons I worked at Sunshine Heights Football Club on training nights and on game day. I looked after both seniors and reserve teams. My job at the club consisted of soft tissue treatment and exercise rehabilitation. While at SHFC in 2008 the seinors won the division 2 premiership. While at the Western Bulldogs in 07/08 I was able to advance my skills in areas of soft tissue techniques, exercise rehabilitation and traditional Chinese medicine, and apply them to my treatments. In the 2 years I was at GGSC (12-13) they where 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!

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
