I am the owner and principle chiropractor here at Sydney Chiropractic & Massage, I am also a senior remedial & sports massage therapist; Over the last decade I have worked with countless pain sufferers and variety of people from different backgrounds including top level athletes, the weekend warrior, chronic pain and every day stress and tension sufferer.
I have decided to take a different path to the vast majority of chiropractors, massage therapist’s, osteopaths, physiotherapist’s etc.. in regards to my approach and the way I treat back pain and injury.
Whilst studying chiropractic at university and working as a massage therapist, I was introduced to a different form of remedial and deep tissue massage known as Steve Lockhart Myotherapy (SLM). Steve Lockhart who is an Australian massage therapist has been using this technique for over 25 years, treating chronic pain suffer’s and Australia’s most successful athletes. It is based on the premise the body is interconnected, & where a personal feels pain is usually as a result of tension & dysfunction elsewhere.
Since finishing chiropractic, i believe i have gained an incredible amount of knowledge and skill that cannot be offered in any other profession and this has only added to my skills as a myotherapist (SLM).
I have since decided to combine these two therapies as the benefits offered by myotherapy (SLM) are far too great for me not to continue using it, and to my knowledge there are no two single therapies that could complement each other so perfectly.
I am now the only person trained in both chiropractic and myotherapy (SLM), and I have; what I believe to be one of the most complete forms of musculoskeletal therapy. I began combining these two therapies in 2013, and I am already seeing the benefits to my patients and I am proud of the fact this unique combination is only offered at Sydney chiropractic & Massage.
