It is estimated that between 75-90% of the population experience one or more headaches every year. Headaches may be symptomatic of an underlying condition such as hypertension, infection or other issues.
The shoulder allows the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. This is due to the four tendons which stabilise the upper arm bone in the shoulder socket.
Our wrist is made up of 8 small bones (carpal bones). These bones are held together by ligaments. In addition to these ligaments, many small muscles, nerves, tendons and blood vessels pass through the wrist to supply your hand (6).
In Australia about 25% of the population participate in some form of running (1). Running is popular as a means to get and stay fit, as a stand-alone sport, and as a large component in many sporting codes.
Posture is essentially the position of the body in space, the relationship of the body parts—head, trunk, and limbs—to each other. Changes in posture occur when any part of the body is moved (5).
Pregnancy and Birth is a Natural Process, the role of your health provider is to allow your body to adapt and function as it was designed to and support you during this important time.
Arthritis is often referred to as a single disease. In fact, it is a term for more than 100 medical conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, specifically joints where two or more bones meet (1,2).

Massage is the manual manipulation of soft tissue and includes holding, causing movement, and/or applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. It is applied to patients experiencing subacute and chronic pain, stress and anxiety, rehabilitation and maintenance of health conditions (1).
Remedial Massage is the objective assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the signs, symptoms and causes of biomechanical dysfunction or injury, using specific mobilisation techniques, in order to restore normal health and function (1).
Myotherapy is a specialised application of massage therapy that treats myofascial pain and dysfunction. Myotherapy consists of assessing, treating and managing the pain associated with soft tissue injury and restricted joint mobility which has been caused by myofascia or muscle dysfunction. The myofascia is the compact, tough tissue which covers and surrounds all of your bones and muscles. In its normal state, myofascia is relaxed and soft and can move and stretch without restriction. However. when physical trauma or inflammation occurs myofascia loses its pliability and become restricted and tight, causing tension throughout the body (2).
Bowen Therapy is a remedial technique that aims to treat the cause of joint pain, muscle issues, sports injuries, ongoing or intermittent pain. The technique involves gentle soft tissue movement in a very specific way, stimulating the connective tissue around muscles. It is safe for children, adults and seniors. It can be used as a stand-alone or as a complementary therapy to other therapies (3).
