Myotherapy and Massage – What’s the difference?

Myotherapy and massage are two distinct professions. Both have different aims and objectives, different health fund rebates, and very different educational pathways.

In common with physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors, myotherapists may use massage in their treatments when warranted, but they also call upon a wide range of other evidence-based treatment approaches and skill-sets which in addition to manual therapy, dry needling, and thermo and electro-therapeutic techniques may include; exercise prescription and/or education about pain management, load management, activity modification and/or lifestyle modification.

In common with the aforementioned allied health professions, Myotherapy has it’s own separate qualifications, specifically the BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy), BHSc (Myotherapy) and AdvDip (Myotherapy), which qualify practitioners to undertake evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.

Payment Methods

We have a HICAPS facility for instant health fund rebates.  

We accept Eftpos, Visa and Mastercard.
