Jane is a Myotherapist who holds a degree in Health Science, Naturopathy, An Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy and a Masters of Applied Science (Acupuncture).
As well as working with a general caseload, she has a special interest in working with people living with chronic conditions and those with complex underlying pathologies.
Jane’s approach to treating is supported by physical assessment and a discussion around your history. Treatment relies on hands on, soft tissue massage techniques including:
- Soft tissue manipulation and massage
- Myofacial release
- Trigger point therapy
- Joint Mobilisation
- Where indicated, your treatment may also involve dry needling, exercise prescription.
Jane adopts a whole-body, biomechanical approach to interpreting a history and considers to the role of the systems other than the musculo-skeletal system and how they may support or hinder recovery. She approaches the therapeutic relationship as a partnership and education around the mechanisms influencing your complaint and a discussion around lifestyle factors that may facilitate change are often an important element to recovery.
In conjunction with her clinical roles, Jane has had extensive teaching experience and has written course work for TAFE, University and Professional Association CPD curriculums. She is also the Practice Manager at Bellbird Sports and Spinal.
