Nicole has qualifications in myotherapy, remedial massage, integrated cupping therapy and a background in beauty therapy. She is completing a Diploma of Clinical Pilates, which she will finish in October. Nicole completed a significant amount of her study and gained work experience in Melbourne but is originally from Minyip and loves being back in the country. Myotherapy is the evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and myofascial pain and associated conditions. Myotherapists use massage in their treatments but also use a wide range of other treatment approaches such as dry needling, thermo and electro-therapeutic techniques, corrective exercise prescription, education about pain management, activity modification and lifestyle modification.
Myotherapy can treat a wide range of conditions including neck and shoulder pain; sports injuries; headaches and migraines; TMJ dysfunction; tennis elbow; sciatica and hip pain; frozen shoulder; carpal tunnel syndrome; chronic back pain; restricted movement and inflexibility; foot and ankle pain; and postural conditions.
