Welcome to Hands on Myotherapy

The clinic has been operating since April 2013. Previously in Scoresby, we relocated to the newly refurbished Wantirna location in March 2016. From small beginnings of a couple of days a week, the practice now operates six days; including Saturday mornings and offers after work appointments to accommodate all needs.

At Hands on Myotherapy we aim to provide professional and caring service. All our friendly practitioners are fully qualified and insured. Their purpose is to identify and treat your concerns with utmost care and professionalism.

What to expect when attending

We are located in a group of office/business suites with the entrance on Boronia Road. There is designated customer parking available. Wear comfortable loose fitting clothing and you may wish to bring your own water bottle. If it is your first visit, we would appreciate it if you could arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time, to allow time to fill in a medical history form. Our practitioners will ask a series of questions in regard to the presenting complaint and any relevant previous medical history. From here postural assessments and testing will be performed. To allow treatment to commence you will be required to remove clothing from the area of concern, and ladies will be provided with a gown. A combination of massage and ‘profession specific’ techniques may be used according to what your body will need. After treatment, the implementation of a treatment plan may be discussed and may include exercises and stretching to do at home. If needed, you can make a forward booking at a time to suit you. It is recommended that you have some water to drink and do not undertake physical exertion immediately following treatment. If you have any questions or concerns following treatment, please give us a call.
